Abstract : Hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs) are neurodegenerative motor neuron diseases characterized by progressive age-dependent loss of corticospinal motor tract function. Although the genetic basis is partly understood, only a fraction of cases can receive a genetic diagnosis, and a global view of HSP is lacking. By using whole-exome sequencing in combination with network analysis, we identified 18 previously unknown putative HSP genes and validated nearly all of these genes functionally or genetically. The pathways highlighted by these mutations link HSP to cellular transport, nucleotide metabolism, and synapse and axon development. Network analysis revealed a host of further candidate genes, of which three were mutated in our cohort. Our analysis links HSP to other neurodegenerative disorders and can facilitate gene discovery and mechanistic understanding of disease.

Abstract : Cholesterol ester storage disease is a rare autosomal recessive storage disorder resulting from lysosomal acid lipase deficiency. Two siblings manifested with hepatosplenomegaly, ptosis, and bilateral external ophthalmoplegia. Evaluation revealed hyperlipidemia and bilateral adrenal calcifications. Leukocyte acid lipase levels were significantly low in both the patients, compared with controls, suggesting a diagnosis of cholesterol ester storage disease. Ptosis and external ophthalmoplegia have hitherto not been reported in cholesterol ester storage disease.
