Abstract

We present the case of a 7 years old boy with the juvenile form of metachromatic leukodystrophy. Beside conventional sequences, a diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance study was performed. On T2-weighted images a diffuse hyperintensity of the cerebral white matter with a typical tigroid pattern was seen as a well-known characteristics of the disease. No difference was detectable on T2-weighted images between the different cerebral white matter regions. Diffusion study showed low apparent diffusion coefficient values in the temporal and orbitofrontal regions and normal values in other cerebral regions compared to the normal appearing cerebellar white matter, wich is partly consistent with the previously reported data. The results of early diffusion studies of the disease are not straightforward and the physical and biochemical backgrounds of the diffusion properties still remain unknown. The more data we collect, the closer we get to the understaning of the diffusion changes in metachromatic leukodystrophy.
