Abstract

COACH syndrome is an autosomal recessive disease associates with cerebellar vermis hypoplasia, oligophrenia, ataxia, coloboma, and hepatic fibrosis. CNS imaging findings are small cerebellar vermis and abnormal course of superior cerebellar peduncles (SCP), which are similar to Joubert syndrome. We report a case of COACH syndrome, in which diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) of MRI visualized the abnormality of whitematter tract anomaly in brainstem.
