What is ADCY5 ?
ADCY5 induced Dyskinesia is a neuro muscler disorder that can often be misdiagnosed as cereal palsy.
ADCY5-related dyskinesia is a movement disorder that is characterized by several different types of involuntary movements. Affected people generally develop sudden jerks, twitches, tremors, muscle tensing, and/or writhing movements between infancy and late adolescence. These abnormal movements are often continuous during waking hours and may persist during sleep, resulting in disrupted sleep cycles. The arms, legs, neck and face are most commonly involved. Hypotonia and delayed motor milestones (i.e. crawling, walking) may also be present in more severely affected infants. As the name suggests, ADCY5-related dyskinesia is caused by changes in the ADCY5 gene. It is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.
