A peroxisomal disorder on the Zellweger spectrum (sometimes referred to as Zellweger syndrome) means that the peroxisomes in your cells aren’t working properly, are absent, or are severely decreased. Peroxisomes are necessary for cell function, normal brain development, and the formation of myelin.
