Abstract
Niemann-Pick type C is a rare neurovisceral inherited lysosomal storage disorder affecting children and young adults. NPC has an incidence of about 1:120, 000 and there are around 80 affected patients in the United Kingdom aged from 1 year to 60 years, with approximately half being children. NPC is a life limiting disease and the main symptoms area vertical supra nuclear gaze palsy, ataxia, dysphagia, dysphasia and cognitive loss. Dementia is an inevitable symptom of the disorder that is even apparent in young children. This presentation will give more information about NPC, the links with NPC and Alzheimers, a few case studies and coping strategies used by families to cope with this symptom of the disease. The author has worked closely with families with NPC for over 15 years.
