|Disease Association||Defects in NPC1 are the cause of Niemann-Pick disease type D (NPD) (MIM:257220); also known as Niemann-Pick disease without sphingomyelinase deficiency, or Nova Scotian type. Because of evidence from biochemical changes, lack of complementation, and linkage mapping to the same chromosome site, NPD and NPC1 are considered to be allelic disorders.|
