J Pediatr. 2002 Jan;140(1):128-30. doi: 10.1067/mpd.2002.120511.


Three Japanese patients with peroxisomal acyl coenzyme A oxidase deficiency who manifested psychomotor retardation and regression during the late infantile period showed characteristic patterns of demyelination in the ponto- medullary corticospinal tracts and in the cerebellar and cerebral white matter. Molecular investigations revealed 2 novel missense mutations, M278V and G178C.
