Leukoencephalopathy With Ataxia; Lkpat

Description

Leukoencephalopathy with ataxia is an autosomal recessive neurologic disorder with a characteristic pattern of white matter abnormalities on brain MRI. Affected individuals have prominent signal abnormalities and decreased apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values in the posterior limbs of the internal capsules, middle cerebral peduncles, pyramidal tracts in the pons, and middle cerebellar peduncles. The findings suggest myelin microvacuolation restricted to certain brain regions. Clinical features include ataxia and unstable gait; more variable abnormalities may include visual field defects, headaches, and learning disabilities (summary by Depienne et al., 2013).
