This title will present all current knowledge of Batten disease from research to clinical evaluation. NCL is not well recognized in underdeveloped countries because the diagnostic technology is lacking. With the information in this volume, however, a specific diagnosis of NCL could be made. Also, specific familial mutations obtained through genetic tests may guide prenatal diagnoses for at-risk families.
