Brunnenstrasse 54, D-34537 Bad Wildungen, Germany.


The casuistic of a child suffering from late infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL) of the type Jansky-Bielschowsky aims to provide a description of possible therapeutic options for the severe spastic and the debilitating myocloni that occur within the context of this disorder. Moreover, it also should include a discussion of potential indications for the application of delta 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (Dronabinol, Marinol) in childhood.
