Neuroacanthocytosis

An inherited autosomal disorder that is characterized by neurodegeneration; orofacial and buccal DYSKINESIAS; CHOREA; and thorny-looking red cells (ACANTHOCYTES). This disorder is due to mutations of chorein which is important in protein trafficking and is encoded by Vps13a on chromosome 9q21.
Also Known As:
Chorea Acanthocytosis; Chorea Acanthocytosis Syndrome; Chorea-Acanthocytosis; Levine-Critchley Syndrome; Acanthocytoses, Chorea; Acanthocytosis, Chorea; Chorea Acanthocytoses; Chorea Acanthocytosis Syndromes; Chorea-Acanthocytoses; Choreoacanthocytoses; Levine Critchley Syndrome; Choreoacanthocytosis
