Abstract:

Background: A 7-year-old boy with an atypical form of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy is reported, predominantly involving frontal, occipital and temporal lobes, corticospinal tracts and cerebellar lobes.

Methods: The disease has been well documented previously with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Discussion: However, there isn't enough data on Magnetic Resonance Perfusion Imaging (MRPI) and non-contrast Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) technique in current literature.

Conclusion: We presented initial and follow up MRI and multiphase ASL perfusion MRI findings.

Keywords: Atypical form, adrenoleukodystrophy, arterial spin labeling technique, Magnetic Resonance Perfusion Imaging (MRPI), multiphase ASL perfusion.
