This study analyzed neurocognitive functioning of 14 school-aged school-aged cystinosis patients treated with cysteamine. Using standardized methods, full-scale intelligence, visual-motor integration, sustained attention, visual memory, planning, or motor speed seem to be affected. The study concludes that neurocognitive diagnostics are indicated in cystinosis patients. Â
