Methylmalonic acidemia is an inborn disorder of amino acid metabolism that commonly presents with neurologic deficits. We present the results of multi-slice proton MR spectroscopy and diffusion-weighted imaging of the brain in two patients with methylmalonic acidemia. The findings consisted of restricted diffusion and elevated lactate in the globi pallidi, compatible with acute infarction (patient 1) and elevated lactate in CSF (patient 2).
