Diagnosing NP-C is complicated and the highly varied pattern of symptoms combined with the rarity of the disease means it is often misdiagnosed or goes undetected. Consequently, the true incidence of NP-C is likely to be underestimated.

Patients with a suspicion of NP-C should undergo a thorough and specific examination, including visceral, neurological and psychiatric assessments before being tested with laboratory analyses.

 

CLINICAL DETECTION OF NP-C

The NP-C Suspicion Index is a simple-to-use tool that has been developed by a scientific committee to support physicians not familiar with the disease, in detecting NP-C among patients suspected as having the disease.

LABORATORY ANALYSES IN NP-C

Following clinical and differential diagnosis, the laboratory diagnostic tests will confirm the diagnosis of NP-C.
