Neuronale Ceroid Lipofuszinose 1 (NCL-1) - Cane Corso

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis is an autosomal recessive disorder, characterized by brain and retinal atrophy and the accumulation of auto-fluorescent storage material in neurons and many other cells within the dog’s body. The symptoms of affected dogs occur at young age at around 8 months and include neurodegeneration resulting in difficulty in navigating in low light, visual impairment progressing to blindness, ataxia, lethargy and premature death. The affected dogs usually have to be euthanized due to deterioration of the neurological functions and overall clinical worsening.
