Krabbe Disease Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment | Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy | MRCPCH & FCPS

This video is about Krabbe Disease, also known as Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy. It is a genetic disorder that affects the central and peripheral nervous system. Those affected by Krabbe disease typically appear healthy until the onset of the disease. The onset of Krabbe disease occurs when the demyelination process begins and results in the initial disease symptoms such as loss of previously attained milestones and feeding difficulties. Onset can vary from early infancy into adulthood. In this video I have described the causes, genetics, inheritance, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of Krabbe disease specifically in infants and children.
