Abstract
We experienced a case of Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), which is a genetically determined metabolic disorder associated with progressive demyelination of brain white matter and adrenal insuficiency. An 11 year old male revealed rapidly evolving neuologic progression, decreased adrenal reserve, increased plasma content of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) and typical radiological findings. We report here the clinical findings of this patient with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), Demyelination of brain white matter, Adrenal insufficiency. Very long chanin fatty acids (VLCFAs)
