PURPOSE To determine whether pontomedullary corticospinal tract involvement is a common and specific finding of adrenoleukodystrophy on MR images. METHODS MR images of 10 patients with biochemically proved adrenoleukodystrophy who were examined during the last 6 years were reviewed retrospectively to determine the frequency of corticospinal tract involvement in the medulla, pons, mesencephalon, internal capsules, and corona radiata. MR images of 10 patients with other leukodystrophies (three… CONTINUE READING
