Computed tomographic demonstration of cerebral edema in a child with galactosemia



Computed tomographic demonstration of cerebral edema in a child with galactosemia



Pediatrics 78(4): 606-609



An eight-day-old male infant with galactosemia presented with signs of increased intracranial pressure and no evidence of intracranial infection or hemorrhage. Computed tomographic scans demonstrated the presence of diffuse cerebral edema. With treatment, the edema gradually resolved, although it persisted longer within the white matter and was associated with transient bilaterial pyramidal tract signs.
