Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Neuro-acanthocytosis is a rare neurological disorder characterised by stereotyped chorea, especially of the mouth, areflexia and acanthocytes seen in the peripheral blood. No cases have been described in the literature from South Africa. We report here a case of neuro-acanthocytosis seen in a black woman who presented to Johannesburg Hospital.
