Currently, the aetiology is unclear but known to be multi- factorial involving the interaction between genetic and environmental factors. There are no diagnostic investigations available and the diagnosis relies on clinical observation. The expression of the pathology and response to treatment remains highly individual but the condition has an almost universally poor outcome. An understanding of the risk factors for the disease may not only assist in illuminating the aetiology of the condition but also target areas of management intervention.
