International HSP names

Part of the promotion for my online HSP survey has been finding HSP groups on Facebook and letting them know. I spent some time translating a post about my survey into different languages. (I used Google translate). It comes as no surprise that the name HSP is different in each language. This post puts down what I have found:

Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia
Hereditary Spastic Paraparesis
Familial Spastic Paraplegia
Familial Spastic Paraparesis

French: Paraplégie Spastique Familiale (PSF)
Portuguese: Paraparesia Espástica Familiar (PEF)
Spanish: Paraparesia Espástica Familiar (PEF)
Italian: Paraparesi Spastiche Ereditarie (PSE)
Italian: Paraparesi Spastica Familiare (PSF)
Swedish: Hereditär Spastisk Parapares (HSP)
Dutch: Hereditaire Spastische Paraparese (HSP)
German: Hereditären Spastischen Spinalparalysen (HSS)
Danish: Hereditær Spastisk Paraplegi (HSP)
Danish: Hereditær Spastisk Paraparese (HSP)
Greek: Κληρονομική Σπαστική Παραπληγία (ΚΣΠ)

Strümpell-Lorrain disease
La maladie de Strümpell-Lorrain
Strümpell-Lorrain`s sygdom

If you know any more, do let me know!

Also, when thinking of a list of HSP names, i know there are also names for certain types of HSP, found on OMIM

SPG1: MASA Syndrome / CRASH Syndrome
SPG3A: Strumpell Disease
SPG9A: Cataracts with Motor Neuronopathy, Short Stature, and Skeletal Abnormalities
SPG15: Kjellin Syndrome
SPG17: Silver Syndrome
SPG18: Intellectual Disability, Motor Dysfunction, And Joint Contractures; IDMDC
SPG20: Troyer Syndrome
SPG21: Mast Syndrome
SPG23: Lison Syndrome
SPG35: Fatty Acid Hydroxylase-Associated Neurodegeneration
SPG39: NTE-Related Motor Neuron Disorder
SPG47: Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Quadriplegic, 5, Formerly; CPSQ5
SPG50: Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Quadriplegic, 3, Formerly; CPSQ3
SPG51: Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Quadriplegic, 4, Formerly; CPSQ4
SPG52: Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Quadriplegic, 6, Formerly; CPSQ6

This tells me that there is no SPG22 or 40, and the list gets a bit fragmented in the high 50's and beyond. At the time of writing the last one is SPG79.
