Magnetic resonance imaging in pathologically proven Hallervorden-Spatz disease



Magnetic resonance imaging in pathologically proven Hallervorden-Spatz disease



Neurology 39(3): 440-442



We present an 11-year-old girl in whom high field strength MRI performed 2 1/2 years and 6 months before her death showed prominent hypointensity in the globus pallidus and substantia nigra consistent with iron deposition. This finding suggested Hallervorden-Spatz disease, which was confirmed at autopsy.
