CT and MRI in maple syrup urine disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We describe a patient with a variant form of maple syrup urine disease who had unusual CT and MRI features that raised the suspicion of a metabolic disease. There were low density and abnormal signal in the white matter and pallida. Sponginess in these areas is the likely explanation for these findings.
