Abstract

Neurodegenerative disorders include a group of severe diseases that share a core including a gradual loss of previously acquired motor, sensory and cognitive functions. In pediatric age, the main diagnostic issues are the discrimination between the loss of previously acquired competencies and the lack of achievement of specific developmental milestones. An ideal classification of these disorders could be based on the combination of genetic, clinical and neuroimaging features. Diagnostic workup should be organized with a special attention to the few diseases with an available and effective therapeutic treatment. The present paper reports a proposal of classification that is based on the prominently involved structure and summarizes the hallmarks for clinical approach and therapeutic management.
