Magnetic resonance imaging of metabolic diseases of the cerebral white matter

Abstract Metabolic diseases of the brain are a rare occurrence. They may be either occurring as inherited diseases causing a destruction of myelin, or they may be the result of toxicity. Neuroimaging, especially magnetic resonance imaging, plays an important role in the detection and classification of these rare diseases. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy is an important tool in the characterization and diagnosis of inherited metabolic diseases.
