Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL)

Disease
NCL is a neurodegenerative disease, caused by lysosomal storage dysfunction.
The clinical course includes increasing levels of agitation and possible outbursts of aggression, hallucinations, hyperactivity and epileptic fits. Most animals lose their ability to coordinate everyday muscular activities. As the extent of neurodegeneration increases, all affected dogs develop psychological abnormalities and ataxia.
