Abstract

A 37-year-old gentleman presented with macrocephaly since early childhood and progressive impairment of motor and cognitive functions. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed extensive white matter involvement and frontotemporal subcortical cysts. Absent ankle jerk and abnormal nerve conduction study raised a possibility of associated peripheral neuropathy. Sural nerve biopsy was suggestive of dysmyelinating neuropathy. This report serves to expand the clinical spectrum of this rare leukodystrophy.
