Case Study
Capillary telangiectasias repesent one of the four types of brainstem vascular malformations, characterized by multiple thin-walled vascular channels, interposed between normal brain parenchyma of unknown etiology. They are most of the time an incidental radiologic fi nding, almost all patients being asymptomatic. We present the case of a 65 years old male, admitted to our clinic for recurrent episodes of horizontal diplopia to lateral gaze on the left side, dizziness and unsteadiness of gait. The cerebral MRI showed imaging features characteristic for capillary telangiectasias in the brainstem and the cerebral angiography was normal.

    Abstract Metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) is an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by deficient activity of the enzyme arylsulfatase-A. Deficiency of this enzyme results in intralysosomal storage of sphingolipid cerebroside 3-sulfates (sulfatides), which are abundant...
