Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) is an ultra-rare, inherited, neurodegenerative disease with life-threatening complications. Due to its highly variable onset of neurological symptoms throughout one’s lifespan, recognizing and establishing diagnosis for NPC can be challenging for any clinician. That’s why Drs. Caroline Hastings and Raymond Y. Wang join Dr. Jennifer Caudle to help address those challenges with a detailed look at this genetic condition, the factors underlying its variable onset and course, and strategies to improve recognition, cross-specialty communications, and time to diagnosis.
