Abstract

PEHO syndrome is a rare symptom complex of severe progressive encephalopathy, edema, hypsarrhythmia, and optic atrophy. Disease onset is in early infancy. The current case report presents and discusses serial conventional MR imaging findings and serial functional studies including diffusion tensor imaging and quantitative MR spectroscopy findings in a 6-year-old child with PEHO.
