Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Menkes' disease, a neurodegenerative progressive X-linked disorder, was diagnosed in a 4-month-old child. The diagnosis was made on the combination of clinical features with laboratory and radiological findings. The pathogenesis of the skeletal findings in Menkes' disease is as yet unclear. Because of the severity of the prognosis and in order to plan treatment, the correct diagnosis has to be reached quickly. Typical manifestations of the syndrome are likely to develop after 3 months of age, with a pleiotropic appearance. In the present case, on the basis of the clinical investigation the patient underwent retrograde cystourethrography, roentgenographic examination of the skeleton, and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain. On analysis of the magnetic resonance imaging, we detected one-sided involvement of both subcortical and cortical parenchyma resembling a unilateral ischemic lesion such as, to our knowledge, has not yet been reported.
