I recently found a program called Pixorize. It's pretty much Sketchy for biochem. Wish I discovered it sooner cuz it has helped for a lot of the painful things like this!
Cherry red spot basically means niemann-pick or tay sachs. Two differences between is:
1- No HSM in Tay Sachs, HSM in niemann-pick.
2- Both of them has muscle weakness but there is hyperreflexia in Tay Sachs, but areflexia in niemann pick disease.
In stem cell HSM is not described and hyperreflexia noted.
HSM - HepatoSplenoMegaly.
Cherry red spots think of
Tay Sachs, deficient enzyme - HeXosaminidase A, accumulated substrate GM2 ganglioside.
Niemann-Pick - Spingomyelinase, Spingomyelin <- which is not even a choice.
