Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Basal ganglia lesions are a well reported feature of acute decompensation in propionic acidemia; however, their underlying causation still needs to be fully elucidated. We report an 8-month-old infant whose lesions had almost completely resolved radiologically within 3 weeks of initial presentation without specific metabolic management and in light of this, we discuss the current thinking on their pathogenesis.
