Neuronal intranuclear inclusion disease
Other Names for this Disease
- Neuronal intranuclear hyaline inclusion disease
Neuronal intranuclear inclusion disease (NIID) refers to a group of rare degenerative nerve diseases. Signs and symptoms of NIID are widespread, progressive, and usually begin in childhood. NIID causes worsening of many of the body's activities, including balance, movement, talking, eating, and cognition. Currently the cause of NIID is not known. Both sporadic and familial cases have been described.
