  • Multiple Sclerosis

    MRI scan: 95% of patients have periventricular lesions and over 90% show discrete white matter abnormalities.[] No enhancing lesions were detected. Spinal cord MRI showed normal findings.[] Brain MRI showed a T2-weighted lesion in the left peritrigonal white matter and slight hyperintensity in the right optic nerve ( Fig. 3A and B ).[]

  • Leigh's Disease

    The neurological abnormalities are many, but the suggestive combination is ocular ab- normalities and long-tract signs: these include nystagmus, bizarre rolling eve movements[] , ptosis, strabismus, pupil ab- normalities, optic atrophy, and pyramidal, extrapyramidal and cerebellar signs.[]

  • Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy

    In the late-onset form, hypodensities of the central white matter and pyramidal tracts were the leading radiological signs, whereas in the early-onset form, hyperdensities[] Barone et al (6) emphasized that pyramidal tract involvement was a leading radiologic sign in the late-onset form of GLD.[] Of our four patients without pyramidal tract involvement, three were asymptomatic.[]
