The neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs or Batten disease) are a group of fatal lysosomal storage disorders. At least ten forms exist, each caused by a mutation in a single gene. These disorders have widely different ages of onset, but share blindness, seizures, motor and cognitive decline, and premature death.
