Abstract

A 31-year-old male patient was admitted to the department of neurology for progressive spastic paraparesis and sen-sory deficit in bilateral lower legs. On review of system, he had decreased libido and mild urinary frequency. On neuro-logic examination, he showed paraparesis, lower limb hypesthesia, bilateral hyperactive knee jerk and bilateral positive Babinski sign. The nerve conduction studies were sensori-motor demyelinating polyneuropathy. For spastic paraparesis and peripheral neuropathy, we approached adrenomyeloneuropathy and ascertained elevated serum very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA) level.
