: Hi!  Jeff Scott here again.  What exactly is AMN (Adrenal Myloneuropathy)? And what are the most up to date treatments for this disorder?  
=Dear J. Scott, Adrenomyeloneuropathy is characterized by adrenal insufficiency since early childhood with a progressive spastic paraparesis and mild polyneuropathy developing in the third decade of life.  Treatment can include adrenal replacement therapy, a diet enriched in monosaturated fatty acids and devoid of long-chain fatty acids, anti-spasmodic agent and treatment for  the symptons of a peripheral neuropathy.  This treatment mayslow the progress of the disease and make the patient more comfortable and/or functional in some instances but there is no cure avable at the present time.  "This information is provided for general medical education purposes only.
