1)      Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease

    Dear Colleague,

    We have identified a pair of brothers with Pelizaeus-Merzbacher
    disease. The diagnosis is based on the classical clinical features and
    an absence of central myelination in one brother who has died. An MRI of
    the surviving brother has not been obtained.

    Is anyone interested in obtaining blood or DNA from the surviving boy
    for mutation studies of the PLP gene? We would appreciate molecular
    analysis to aid genetic counselling.

    We would also value comments re the accuracy of MRI for identifying
    carriers. We are aware of the paper by Boltshauser et al (Hum Genet
    80:393-394, 1988). What has your experience been?

    Yours sincerely,

    Graeme Suthers
