147 Possible Causes for Diffuse Hypomyelination, Psychomotor Retardation

  • Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain revealed diffuse hypomyelination [Figure 1].[] Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease (PMD) is a rare X-linked recessive disorder with severe psychomotor retardation and neurological symptoms due to an inborn abnormality of proteolipid[] The typical clinical manifestations of PMD include psychomotor retardation, nystagmus, abnormal muscle tone, seizures, and cognitive impairment.[]

  • Pyruvate Carboxylase Deficiency

    Anatomic-pathologic studies revealed periventricular cysts and diffuse hypomyelination. Prenatal diagnosis of a further sibling was performed.[] The most severe form (form B) is characterized by neonatal lethal lactic acidosis, whereas patients with form A suffer chronic lactic acidosis with psychomotor retardation[] […] with Atrophy 519 Hereditary Diffuse Leukoencephalo 526 Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy 535 Cerebral Autosomal Dominant 541 Cerebral Autosomal Recessive 549 Pigmentary Orthochromatic[]

  • Fucosidosis

    MRI showed diffuse hypomyelination and auditory brainstem responses and somatic-sensorial evoked potentials were altered.[] In type 2, patients have angiokeratoma, milder psychomotor retardation and neurologic signs, longer survival, and normal salinity in the sweat.[] . • Typical MRI features combine bilateral globi pallidi hyperintensity on T1-weighted images that are hypointense on T2-weighted images with diffuse hypomyelination. • Proton[]

  • Hypomyelinating Leukodystrophy Type 5

    Brain magnetic resonance imaging show the combination of a diffuse hypomyelination with superimposed periventricular white matter signal abnormalities. this study describes[] retardation, spasticity, athetosis, and epileptic seizures.[] In the intermediate stage (approximately 2–10 years), the white matter is diffusely abnormal with a background of diffuse hypomyelination ( Fig 2 ), in most patients associated[]

  • Aromatic L-Amino Acid Decarboxylase Deficiency

    Of 15 MR examinations, the major changes included 6 (40%) with diffusely prominent bilateral frontal sulci, 10 (67%) with prominent frontal horns, and 12 (80%) with hypomyelination[] These patients were born to healthy and non-consanguineous parents, and presented oculogyric crises, paroxysmal dystonic attacks, and severe psychomotor retardation since[] These findings suggested that the severe dystonic features were caused by abnormal function of bilateral basal ganglia and severe psychomotor retardation could be due to abnormalities[]

  • Propionic Acidemia

    Galactosemia may present with diffuse hypomyelination.[] The clinical picture varies from patients presenting with mild psychomotor retardation to those with severe metabolic decompensation with vomiting, dehydration, encephalopathy[] retardation and chronic vomiting.[]

  • West Syndrome

    Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed diffusely reduced white matter and brainstem volumes with hypomyelination.[] It is characterized by intractable seizures occurring almost daily, severe psychomotor retardation, poor prognosis and EEG abnormalities, known as hypsarrhythmia.[] retardation or deterioration.[]

  • Polymicrogyria

    We describe two children from a consanguineous family who manifested mega-corpus callosum, polymicrogyria, and psychomotor retardation.[] Reviewing the literature, we speculate that MegaCC, psychomotor retardation and anomalies in cortical migration are the three pathognomonic features.[] The second patient is a 3 year-old boy with psychomotor retardation, spastic diplegia and right temporal polymicrogyria who presented a 3 Mb duplication in the 22q11.2 region[]

  • Zellweger Syndrome

    Neuroanatomical sequelae include impaired neuronal migration, diffuse hypomyelination, and sensorineural degeneration.[] It is characterized by severe hypotonia, failure to thrive, psychomotor retardation, liver dysfunction, and sensorineural hearing impairment.[] We describe an infant boy with facial dysmorphism, profound hypotonia, psychomotor retardation, seizure and hepatomegaly.[]

  • Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia

    […] with Atrophy 519 Hereditary Diffuse Leukoencephalo 526 Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy 535 Cerebral Autosomal Dominant 541 Cerebral Autosomal Recessive 549 Pigmentary Orthochromatic[] We diagnosed a 22-year-old man with psychomotor retardation, rare seizures, hyperglycinemia, and hyperglycinuria as an atypical variant of nonketotic hyperglycinemia (NKH)[] In neonatal-onset nonketotic hyperglycinemia, severe psychomotor retardation is the expected uniform outcome.[]
