Unusual brain images of a boy with adolescent cerebral X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy presenting with exhibitionism: A CARE-compliant case report.

Abstract The respective involvements of both the thalamus and exhibitionism in cerebral X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) have not been reported.

AB  - RATIONALE: The respective involvements of both the thalamus and exhibitionism in 
      cerebral X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) have not been reported. PATIENT
      CONCERNS: An 11-year-old boy initially presented with exhibitionism and
      progressive neurobehavioral symptoms. He subsequently developed transient urinary
      and fecal incontinence, and an unwillingness to eat or communicate. DIAGNOSES: We
      conducted contrast-enhanced brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which
      revealed symmetrical altered signal intensities in bilateral frontal white
      matter, the basal ganglia, and dorsal thalami, as well as a peripheral rim of
      contrast enhancement. Diagnosis of adolescent cerebral X-ALD was confirmed on the
      basis of next generation genetic sequencing analysis. INTERVENTIONS: We initiated
      the patient on hormonal replacement therapy. OUTCOMES: We observed rapidly
      progressive neurologic deterioration in this patient, and the boy fell into a
      vegetative state 10 months after discharge. LESSONS: We recommend that physicians
      should not disregard X-ALD in patients with isolated psychiatric symptoms,
      including hypersexual behavior. The combination of detailed clinical evaluation, 
      MRI, and next generation genetic sequencing can expedite the diagnostic process
      of atypical variant of X-ALD.
