Disease characteristics

Excerpted from the GeneReview: CSF1R-Related Hereditary Diffuse Leukoencephalopathy with Spheroids
CSF1R-related hereditary diffuse leukoencephalopathy with spheroids (HDLS) is characterized by executive dysfunction, memory decline, personality changes, motor impairment, and seizures. A frontal lobe syndrome (e.g., loss of judgment, lack of social inhibitors, lack of insight, and motor persistence) usually appears early in the disease course. The mean age of onset is usually in the fourth decade. Affected individuals eventually become bedridden with spasticity and rigidity. The disease course ranges from two to 11 or more years (mean: 6 years).
