J Clin Neurosci. 2009 Jan;16(1):112-4. doi: 10.1016/j.jocn.2008.02.011. Epub 2008 Nov 20.


Lowe (oculocerebrorenal) syndrome is an X-linked recessive disorder characterised by congenital cataract, glaucoma, cognitive developmental delay and renal tubular Fanconi syndrome. In this report we present a patient with Lowe syndrome with a tigroid pattern on cranial MRI, which has not been previously reported as an imaging feature of this syndrome.
