Cerebellar abnormalities on proton MR spectroscopy in gluten ataxia.

Abstract

Gluten sensitivity can manifest with ataxia. The metabolic status of the cerebellum was investigated in 15 patients with gluten ataxia and 10 controls using proton MR spectroscopy. Significant differences were present in mean N-acetyl aspartate levels at short echo time and N-acetyl aspartate/choline ratios at long echo time between the patient and control… (More)
