Batten disease

Liz Hartnett Lecturer, School of Nursing and Human Sciences, Dublin City University

The term Batten disease includes a collection of rare and fatal inherited disorders of the nervous system (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke 2019). These disorders are termed neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) and include nine forms. These differ in symptoms, age of onset and order of progression of the disease (Mink et al 2013).
