Abstract

Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) is a rare inborn error of branched chain aminoacids metabolism. In the classical form patients present in the first weeks of life with poor feeding, vomiting, lethargy, seizures and coma. There are some reports on CT and MR findings, showing diffuse symmetrical involvement of cerebral and deep cerebellar white matter, basal ganglia, especially of pallidi, thalami, brainstem and internal and external capsule. We performed cranial US in three newborns affected by MSUD and compared these findings with CT and MR imaging. Symmetrical increase of echogenicity of periventricular white matter, basal ganglia, mainly of pallidi, and thalami could easily be detected, while a correct assessment of brainstem and cerebellar involvement was not possible.
