Megalencephalic leukoencephalopathy (MLC) is a rare neurological disorder with an autosomal recessive pattern. Clinical diagnosis was based on macrocephaly, recurrent seizure, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Here we report first finding of a novel homozygous single base deletion in the MLC1 gene in an affected Iranian child causing a premature stop codon (p.L150fs.160X).
Keywords: Iranian; MLC1 gene; leukodystrophy; novel mutation.
