Panel Version: 2.81
Biallelic variants in GALC are associated with Krabbe disease (MIM# 245200). Most patients present within the first 6 months of life with extreme irritability, spasticity, and developmental delay. A subset of cases also have later onset, including onset in the juvenile and adolescence period - all of which are relevant to this panel.
