Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Alpers Syndrome:
First signs of the disease, which include
intractable seizures and failure to meet meaningful developmental
milestones, usually occur in infancy. Primary symptoms of the disease are
developmental delay, progressive mental retardation, hypotonia (low muscle
tone), spasticity (stiffness of the limbs), and dementia. Seizures may
include epilepsia partialis continua, a type of seizure that consists of
repeated myoclonic (muscle) jerks. Optic atrophy may also occur, often
leading to blindness. And, although physical signs of chronic liver
dysfunction may not be present, many patients suffer liver impairment
leading to liver failure.
