Adult-onset genetic leukoencephalopathies. Focus on the more recently defined forms.
Siena, Italy. In Curr Mol Med, 10 Nov 2014
The most common forms are related to vascular pathology, such as cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL), cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CARASIL), COL4A1-related leukoencephalopathy, retinal vasculopathy with cerebral leukodystrophy (RVCL), and polycystic lipomembranous osteodysplasia with sclerosing leukoencephalopathy (PLOSL).
Molecular basis of young ischemic stroke.
Milano, Italy. In Curr Med Chem, 2012
This article reviews the existing literature on the most investigated monogenic disorders (CADASIL, Fabry disease, MELAS, RVCL, COL4A1, Marfan and Ehlers-Danlos syndromes) causing stroke in young and a number of candidate genes associated with stroke occurring in patients younger than 50 years.
Hereditary cerebral small vessel diseases: a review.
Siena, Italy. In J Neurol Sci, 2012
Clinical features and diagnostic clues of these conditions, [cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL), cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CARASIL), COL4A1-related cerebral small vessel diseases, autosomal dominant retinal vasculopathy with cerebral leukodystrophy (AD-RVLC), and Fabry's disease] are here reviewed.
Childhood presentation of COL4A1 mutations.
Bristol, United Kingdom. In Dev Med Child Neurol, 2012
COL4A1 mutations can present in children with infantile hemiplegia/quadriplegia, stroke or epilepsy, and a motor disorder.
Genetics of anterior segment dysgenesis disorders.
Milwaukee, United States. In Curr Opin Ophthalmol, 2011
RECENT FINDINGS: Mutations in Collagen type IV alpha-1 (COL4A1) and Beta-1,3-galactosyltransferase-like (B3GALTL) have been reported in ASD patients.
Role of COL4A1 in small-vessel disease and hemorrhagic stroke.
Bar Harbor, United States. In N Engl J Med, 2006
Identified a COL4A1 mutation in a human family with small-vessel disease. Mutation of COL4A1 may cause a spectrum of cerebrovascular phenotypes and that persons with COL4A1 mutations may be predisposed to hemorrhage.
