SummaryA histochemical study is reported of regional differences of the lipid storage in a case of Niemann-Pick disease (NPD) type C. Besides tissues known to be affected (reticuloendothelium, hepatocytes, nervous system), storage was demonstrated in adrenal cortical spongiocytes, sweat glands, renal glomerular and tubular cells, smooth muscle, excretory tubules of some salivary glands, ependyma and in choroid plexus. In most tissues were stored sphingomyelin, cholesterol and a small amount of… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Niemann-Pick disease
TLDR
The results of a complex analysis of liver tissue are presented and a secondary deficit of nonspecific esterase activity and acid β-galactosidase in liver storage macrophages is revealed and varying degrees of suppression of hepatocytic enzyme activities as a reaction to lipid storage of sudden onset are revealed. Expand
Niemann-Pick Disease Type C
TLDR
Light microscopic and histochemical studies revealed storage of lipid in the viscera and in the central nervous system (predominantly ganglioside) and data are compatible with autosomal recessive inheritance of a sphingomyelin lipidosis associated with deficiency of isoelectric forms of sphingomelinase. Expand
Morphological diagnosis of Niemann-Pick disease type C by skin and conjunctival biopsies.
TLDR
Skin and conjunctival biopsies performed in six children with mental deterioration, incoordination, involuntary movements and discrete visceromegaly supported the morphological diagnosis of Niemann-Pick disease type C. Expand
Niemann-Pick disease (variation in the sphingomyelinase deficient group)
We report three families with five cases of sphingomyelinase (SMase) deficiency, early neurovisceral symptomatology, and a conspicuously protracted course (7–22 years) in contrast to theExpand
Lipidosis with a predominant storage of phosphoglycerides (Phospholipidosis Type II—Baar, Wiedemann)
TLDR
There is a strong evidence that this group of diseases represents a new type of phospholipid storage disease the name “PhospholIPidosis Type II” (Baar-Wiedemann) or ”Phosphoglyceridosis” is proposed, whereas “phospholipIDosis Type I” or “Sphingomyelinosis’ should be reserved for the classical Niemann-Pick complex. Expand
Neurovisceral lipidosis compatible with Niemann-Pick disease type C: Morphological and biochemical studies of a late infantile case and enzyme and lipid assays in a prenatal case of the same family
TLDR
The apparent normalization of SM in the postnatal case was accompanied by a decrease of visceromegaly raising the question of a causal relationship between the two phenomena, suggesting a prenatally lowered SM need not be a constant finding. Expand
An unusual case of phospholipidosis
TLDR
A structural, histochemical and lipid-chromatographic study of tissues obtained at postmortem from an unusual case of phospholipidosis shows sphingomyelin (SP) was shown, histochemically and chromatographically, to be the main lipid stored. Expand

1. Niemann-Pick disease type C (NP-C) is an autosomal recessive lipidosis with protean clinical manifestations, distinguished biochemically by a unique error in cellular trafficking of exogenousExpand
Chemical studies on postmortem tissues from an infant with a sphingomyelin storage disorder
TLDR
Investigations of formalin-stored tissues from a female child 3 weeks old showed that the concentrations of sphingomyelin, cholesterol and other lipids were increased in spleen and other tissues, most consistent with the patient having a sphingomelin storage disorder. Expand

Niemann-Pick disease. Morphologic and biochemical studies in the visceral form with late central nervous system involvement (Crocker's group C).
TLDR
It has become evident that Niemann-Pick disease does not represent a single clinical and biochemical entity, but that there may at least be four conditions in which there is tissue storage of sphingomyelin. Expand
Niemann-Pick disease (Crocker's group A). Late onset and pigmentary degeneration resembling Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome.
TLDR
Postmortem findings on a 12-year-old Flemish girl unexpectedly revealed a neurolipidosis with the biochemical features of Niemann-Pick disease (Crocker's group A) and large amounts of lipopigment were found in glial cells from the pallidum, pars reticulata of the substantia nigra and dentate nuclei, thalamus, and brain cortex. Expand
Niemann-Pick's disease
TLDR
The importance of the present case lies in the fact that it demonstrates an unusual neuronal storage, in fact, identical or very similar to that in infantile amaurotic idiocy. Expand
Infantile Niemann-Pick disease. A chemical study with isolation and characterization of membranous cytoplasmic bodies and myelin.
TLDR
According to Crocker, the classical infantile form is the only one showing increased sphingomyelin in the brain, and the well documented adult Neimann-Pick disease can be added as the fifth form. Expand
Niemann‐Pick Disease in Infancy
TLDR
The evidence suggests that the hepatic changes constituted the neonatal liver's non‐specific reaction to injury, and may be ascribed to severe liver cell damage with Niemann‐Pick cells, giant‐cell transformation, fibrosis and bile stasis. Expand
The subacute form of Niemann-Pick disease.
TLDR
Crocker's classification of Niemann-Pick disease as a classic infantile; the infantile without neurological involvement; the more slowly progressive or juvenile type; and a less clearly defined group of adolescent, Roman Catholic, Nova Scotians are summarized. Expand

It seems to be of value to present recent material from this hospital which bears on the thorny problem of the type of nervous system handicap found in certain of the lipidoses. Expand
