Two adult brothers, one documented to have methylma-Ionic acidemia with homocystinuria, or cobalamin C deficiency, after autopsy, displayed severe but divergent neurological presentations. One exhibited a myelopathy and the other chronic endocrine problems (Schmidt's syndrome) followed by a neuropsychiatric and dementing disorder owing to cerebral perivascular demyelination. The recognition of cobalamin C deficiency has practical implications because it is one of the few inherited diseases of central white matter that is treatable.
