Looking for patients with chorea-acanthocytosis or McLeod syndrome

We are planning a patient/caregiver meeting in the US in 2016 for people affected by chorea-acanthocytosis or Mcleod syndrome.

If you have a patient with either of these neuroacanthocytosis syndromes who might be interested in attending, please ask them to email Ginger Irvine at the Advocacy for Neuroacanthocytosis Patients. As these are such rare conditions, we want to reach all who are affected in order to determine if there is interest. Any other questions, please email Dr. Ruth Walker at
