What is Niemann-Pick disease, type D?

  • Niemann-Pick disease, type D: Niemann-Pick disease is an inherited metabolic disorder where lipids are not able to be metabolized adequately and hence build up and cause damage in various parts of the body such as the spleen, liver, lungs, bone marrow and brain. Type D is no longer a relevant term as research has shown that it has the same genetic mutation as Type C and is therefore the same condition.

Niemann-Pick disease, type D is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Niemann-Pick disease, type D, or a subtype of Niemann-Pick disease, type D, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
