Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Spastic paraplegia type 15 is part of a group of congenital diseases known as genetic spastic paraplegias. In enhancement to the muscles and brain, spastic paraplegia type 15 influences the peripheral nervous system, which consists of nerves connecting the brain and spinal cord to muscles and sensory cells that detect sensations such as touch, pain, heat, and audio. People with this type of spastic paraplegia can have feeling numb, prickling, or pain in the legs and arms; impairment of the nerves used for muscle mass movement; overstated reflexes of the lower limbs; muscular tissue losing; or reduced bladder control. Rarely, spastic paraplegia type 15 is related to a group of movement irregularities called parkinsonism, which includes tremors, rigidity, and unusually slow movement. People with spastic paraplegia type 15 may have an eye condition called pigmentary maculopathy that usually hinders vision. Most individuals with spastic paraplegia type 15 experience a decline in intellectual capability and an increase in muscular tissue weakness and nerve irregularities in time.
