The Suspicion Index (SI) screening tool was developed to identify patients suspected of having Niemann-Pick disease type C (NP-C). The SI provides a risk prediction score (RPS) based on NP-C manifestations within and across domains (visceral, neurological and psychiatric). The aim of these subanalyses was to further examine the discriminatory power of the SI by age and manifestation-associations by NP-C suspicion-level and leading manifestations.
