Brain metabolic disorders are a major cause of mortality and morbidity in children. Proton MR spectroscopy is a sensitive diagnostic modality for these diseases. The abnormalities in metabolite levels revealed by MR spectroscopy provide specific information in a wide range of metabolic disturbances. Continuing MR imaging and MR spectroscopy yields maximum diagnostic information in an MR examination.
