Early white matter changes on brain magnetic resonance imaging in a newborn affected by merosin-deficient congenital muscular dystrophy.

In 1996 we reported sequential magnetic resonance imaging study in an infant with merosin-deficient congenital muscular dystrophy with normal brain magnetic resonance imaging at 3 weeks and white matter changes by 6 months. We now report an infant with merosin-deficient congenital muscular dystrophy with a mild degree of white matter changes already present… (More)
