This progressive neurological disorder has late infantile onset, and the clinical phenotypes include psychomotor regression, neurodegeneration, epilepsy, disturbed brain myelination, as well as intellectual disability, speech difficulties, ataxia, and tremors. The life expectancy for this disorder is currently unknown.
