Cellular mechanism leading to Parkinson Disease (PD) is still unknown, but impairment of lysosomal degradation of aberrant proteins seems to play a crucial role. The most known lysosomal disease associated with PD is Gaucher Disease. However, actually a number of different lysosomal disorders have been linked with PD.

Even if a possibly casual association cannot be excluded, it can be speculated that Arylsulphatase A partial deficit can act as a cofactor for neurodegeneration in subjects with other genetic or environmental predispositions to PD or to other neurodegenerative disease

Abstract

Cellular mechanism leading to Parkinson Disease (PD) is still unknown, but impairment of lysosomal degradation of aberrant proteins seems to play a crucial role. The most known lysosomal disease associated with PD is Gaucher Disease. However, actually a number of different lysosomal disorders have been linked with PD. We report three families with Arylsulphatase A partial deficit in which we can find a high recurrence of parkinsonism among the siblings. The pedigree members show as well some atypical signs and symptoms among the PD spectrum features. Arylsulphatase A plays a crucial role in protein degradation. Even if a possibly casual association cannot be excluded, it can be speculated that Arylsulphatase A partial deficit can act as a cofactor for neurodegeneration in subjects with other genetic or environmental predispositions to PD or to other neurodegenerative disease
