Leukodystrophies are a group of rare genetic disorders that affect the central nerves. The CNS is comprised of your brain and spinal cord. Leukodystrophies harm the white matter of your CNS. The white matter includes: Nerve fibers, called axons, which connect your nerve cells; Myelin, a layer of proteins and fatty materials that covers and safeguards the nerve fibers. When the white matter is harmed, it can reduce down or obstruct the signals in between nerve cells. Leukodystrophies are created by hereditary changes. The symptoms of leukodystrophies rely on the type; they can consist of a steady loss of: Muscle tone; balance and flexibility; Walking; Speech; Ability to eat; Vision; Hearing; Behavior.
