What is the long-term outlook for people with adult neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis?

Unfortunately, the long-term outlook (prognosis) for people with adult neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis is generally poor. The symptoms tend to become worse over time, resulting in a shortened life expectancy. Most sources state that a person with adult neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis usually lives about 10 years after the symptoms begin.[1][2]
