Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA);
Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome;
Pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration (PKAN);
Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) is a group of progressive extrapyramidal and cognitive disorders characterized by iron accumulation predominantly in the globus pallidus, as well as extensive axonal spheroids in various regions of the brain. The most frequent genetic form is the pantothenate kinase-2 associated neurodegeneration (PKAN) with a mutation in the pantothenate kinase 2 (PANK2) gene. Other forms are associated with a mutation in phosphoslipase A2 (PLA2G6), FTL (neuroferritinopathy), CP (aceruloplasminemia), FA2H (Fatty acid 2-hydroxylase) and ATP13A2 (ATPase type 13A2) genes. A significant proportion of children with an NBIA phenotype have no genetic diagnosis and there are additional as yet undiscovered genes that account for a number of these cases.
