Abstract :

Some cases are presented to show that it is challenging to distinguish metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) from a primary psychiatric disorder, especially early in the disease, when motor function is still intact. Late juvenile and adult patients with MLD have an insidious disease onset and often present with psychiatric symptoms. Clues to the diagnosis of MLD are also highlighted.
