McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome is primarily a neurological disorder that occurs almost exclusively in boys and men. This disorder affects movement in many parts of the body. People with McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome also have abnormal star-shaped red blood cells. This condition is one of a group of disorders called neuroacanthocytosis that involve neurological problems and abnormal red blood cells. McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome affects the brain and spinal cord. Affected individuals have involuntary movements, including jerking motions, particularly of the arms and legs, and muscle tensing in the face and throat, which can cause grimacing and vocal tics.
