Viliuisk encephalomyelitis (VE) is a neurodegenerative disorder expressed as subacute meningo-encephalitis progressing to a more prolonged pan-encephalitic syndrome with a fatal outcome within 1 to 10 years. Some patients survive to a steady state of global dementia and severe spasticity that may last for over 20 years. Multiple micronecrotic foci(More)
The diversity of Mendelian hereditary pathology has been studied in Sakha Republic (Yakutia). The sample comprised 1 000 700 subjects, including 363 316 Yakuts, 14 428 Evenks, 8668 Evens, 550 263 Russians, and 64 025 subjects from other ethnic groups. Fifty-one autosomal dominant (AD) diseases, including five diseases with frequencies of 1 : 50 000 or(More)
BACKGROUND Viliuisk encephalomyelitis is a disorder that starts, in most cases, as an acute meningoencephalitis. Survivors of the acute phase develop a slowly progressing neurologic syndrome characterized by dementia, dysarthria, and spasticity. An epidemic of this disease has been spreading throughout the Yakut Republic of the Russian Federation. Although(More)
Since the discovery of Viliuisk encephalomyelitis (VE) in 1887, scientists have tried to understand the natural history and aetiology of this endemic neurological disorder among the native Sakha population of Central Siberia. Familial aggregation and segregation analysis suggested a genetic influence on VE incidence. However, recent studies have implicated(More)
Summarized data of medical genetic survey of the population of Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) are presented.
