Type B Niemann-Pick Disease

An allelic disorder of TYPE A NIEMANN-PICK DISEASE, a late-onset form. It is also caused by mutation in SPHINGOMYELIN PHOSPHODIESTERASE but clinical signs involve only visceral organs (non-neuropathic type).

01/01/1990 - "The data suggest that mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type IVA (Morquio disease), multiple sulphatase deficiency, Niemann-Pick disease type B, GM2 gangliosidosis type '0' (Sandhoff disease), and ceroid lipofuscinosis (Jansky-Bielschowsky and Batten-Spielmeyer-Vogt syndromes) are encountered frequently in Saudi Arabia, as compared to other storage diseases. "
01/01/1979 - "The diseases were Tay-Sachs disease, ceroid-lipofuscinosis (Jansky-Bielschowsky type), Niemann-Pick disease (type B), highly suspected adrenoleukodystrophy, I-cell disease, mucolipidosis of the beta-galactosidase deficient type, Hurler disease, Hunter disease and Morquio disease. "
10/01/2007 - "Lysosomal diseases were classified into 3 groups: (1) leukodystrophies (metachromatic leukodystrophy, Krabbe's disease and Salla's disease); (2) Neurodegenerative or psychiatric-like diseases (GM1 and GM2 gangliosidoses, Niemann Pick type C disease, sialidosis type I, ceroid-lipofuscinosis, mucopolysaccharidosis type III); (3) multisystemic diseases (Gaucher's disease, Fabry's disease, alpha and B mannosidosis, Niemann Pick disease type B, fucosidosis, Schindler/Kanzaki disease, and mucopolysaccharidosis type I and II. We propose a diagnostic approach guided by clinical examination, brain MRI, electrodiagnostic studies and abdominal echography."
08/01/2006 - "Autopsy findings of hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and ceroid-rich foam cells raised the suspicion of the visceral form of acid sphingomyelinase deficiency (Niemann-Pick disease type B; NPB) or a much rarer disorder, variant adult visceral form of Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC).
