    We present the MRI findings in a case of infantile-onset Krabbe disease. Enlargement of the intracranial optic nerves and cervical cord were detected in addition to more typical changes in the cerebral white matter and thalami. We also review the proton MR spectroscopic findings in Krabbe disease.

    Vanishing white matter disease is a rare neurological disease. The majority of patients reported are Caucasian individuals. We describe the first Chinese patient with typical clinical and radiological features genetically confirmed to have vanishing white matter disease for a mutation in EIF2B4,...

    Purpose: The goal of this study was to better understand vanishing white matter (VWM) disease, which is one of the most common hereditary white matter disorders, and its relationship to radiologic features, genetic analyses, and clinical findings. Methods: We performed a study on 11 patients to...

    Vanishing white matter is an autosomal recessive leukoencephalopathy linked to mutations in the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B. It is a disease of infants, children and adults who experience a slowly progressive neurologic deterioration with episodes of rapid clinical worsening and...

    We report the clinical description of an Italian patient with c.638A>G mutation in exon 5 of EIF2B2 gene and a very slow progressive Vanishing White Matter disease phenotype. Infact, in relation to her causative mutation, our patient had an unusual early onset and long course. Furthermore, other...

    Background Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) is most commonly associated with TAR-DNA binding protein (TDP-43) or tau pathology at autopsy, but there are no in vivo biomarkers reliably discriminating between sporadic cases. As disease-modifying treatments emerge, it is critical to...

    We report the autopsy cases of two brothers which are pathologically compatible with Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease (PMD). Both patients had a late onset (at the ages of 29 and 42 years) and chronic neurological symptoms including tremor, ataxia and dementia. The T2-weighted magnetic resonance...
