BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Multiple sclerosis (MS) patients can present with atypical cavitary lesions mimicking vanishing white matter disease (VWMD. [] Key MethodMETHODS A cross-sectional study was performed including 14 patients with MS with cavitary lesions and 14 patients with VWMD. Two neuroradiologists retrospectively reviewed the MRI including at least T1-, T2- and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery weighted images.
Familial deep cavitating state with a glutathione metabolism defect
TLDR
Investigations realized in patients referred for psychiatric disorder with magnetic resonance imaging showing atypical basal ganglia lesions revealed a new hereditary disease linked to glutathione metabolism.
Genetic diseases mimicking multiple sclerosis
TLDR
Genetic diseases that have the potential to mimic multiple sclerosis are discussed, with highlights on clinical identification and practicing pearls that may aid physicians in recognizing MS-mimics with genetic background in clinical settings.
Differential imaging of atypical demyelinating lesions of the central nervous system
TLDR
In this review, the main pattern of presentation of atypical inflammatory demyelinating diseases is discussed, with particular attention on the differential diagnosis and how to adequately define the correct etiology.
Automated segmentation reveals silent radiographic progression in adult-onset vanishing white-matter disease
TLDR
The results of an automated method of segmentation to detect alterations in T2-weighted fluid-attenuated-inversion-recovery (FLAIR) sequences in a one-year follow-up study of a clinically stable patient with genetically diagnosed VWM demonstrate that automated EVD-based segmentation allows a precise and rapid quantification of extensive FLAIR alterations like in VWM.
MRI Findings in Tumefactive Demyelinating Lesions: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Conventional MR imaging findings may help differentiate tumefactive demyelinating lesions from primary brain tumor, though further study is needed to determine the added value of advanced MR imaging.

TLDR
Stroke represents the largest proportion of papers published, including those on pathophysiology, acute stroke management, and the outcome of patients who have suffered stroke.
Automatic segmentation of white matter hyperintensities from brain magnetic resonance images in the era of deep learning and big data - A systematic review
TLDR
There is no evidence that favours deep learning methods over the more established k-NN, linear regression and unsupervised methods in this task, and traditional semi-automatic methods seem to be preferred in clinical research.

Adult-onset vanishing white matter disease as differential diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis: A case report
TLDR
In cases with relatively mild symptoms and extensive white matter lesions, adult-onset VWM should be considered as differential diagnosis of PPMS and diffusion-weighted imaging may be helpful to identify suspected cases.

Cavitating Leukoencephalopathy in a Child Carrying the Mitochondrial A8344G Mutation
TLDR
A selective white matter involvement has been reported in specific mitochondrial diseases, including Leber hereditary optic neuropathy, myoneurogastrointestinal and other mitochondrial disorders.
Extensive brain calcifications, leukodystrophy, and formation of parenchymal cysts
TLDR
Both the anatomic findings and the course of the disease suggest a constitutional, diffuse cerebral microangiopathy resulting in microcystic, then macroCystic, parenchymal degeneration.
Thalamic lesions in multiple sclerosis by 7T MRI: Clinical implications and relationship to cortical pathology
TLDR
Thalamic lesion analysis may be a simpler, more rapid estimate of overall gray matter lesion burden in MS, which is associated with disability, progressive disease, and cortical lesions.
Adult-onset vanishing white matter disease due to a novel EIF2B3 mutation.
TLDR
This is the second report of adult-onset vanishing white matter disease due to mutations in EIF2B3 and the first report of the c.272G>A (p.Arg91His) missense mutation.
Genetic heterogeneity of megalencephalic leukoencephalopathy and subcortical cysts
TLDR
A broad spectrum of pathogenetic mutations were identified in the MLC1 gene, enlarging the spectrum of allelic variants without a straightforward genotype–phenotype correlation.
Vanishing white matter disease
Natural history of adult-onset eIF2B-related disorders: a multi-centric survey of 16 cases.
TLDR
The aim was to describe clinical and brain magnetic resonance imaging characteristics, genetic findings and natural history of patients with adult-onset eIF2B-related disorders (after age 16) and to assess clinical evolution, using functional, pyramidal, cerebellar and cognitive scales.
