DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Megalencephalic leukodystrophy with subcortical cysts is a rare, recently described condition. Infantile macrocephaly, initially normal development and gradual neurological deterioration and relative preservation of mental abilities predominate. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrates an edematous brain with diffuse white-matter abnormalities and subcortical cysts. Megalencephalic leukodystrophy with subcortical cysts has been described as having a predilection for some communities. We report what is thought to be a sporadic case of two siblings of a consanguineous marriage, not belonging to known susceptible communities, who presented with characteristic features.
