Lafora Disease (Lafora Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy) is a rare recessive genetic form of epilepsy. It is classified as Lafora Disease by the presence of Lafora bodies, a specific type of inclusion bodies that are present in all organs, and current research shows that it is caused by a mutation of three genes on the sixth chromosome. Lafora Disease is a fatal disease and has no cure. Most often, the symptoms of Lafora Disease appear when a person is in his/her early teens, and the person usually dies within ten years of initial symptoms. Symptoms of Lafora Disease include seizures, dementia, and ataxia (muscle spasms).
