In the past decade there have been significant advances in our understanding of the molecular genetic basis of the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses, a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of childhood neurodegenerative storage disorders. Recent research progress is reviewed here, to summarize new disease gene identification, diagnostics, treatment, protein functional studies and investigations into the underlying molecular pathogenesis of these devastating disorders.
