  • Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease: a point mutation in exon 6 of the proteolipid protein (PLP) gene.

    Pratt VM, Dlouhy SR and Hodes ME

    Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease has been known since 1885. It is characterized by severe dysmyelination of the central nervous system. We describe a new mutation in exon 6 of the proteolipid protein gene in a 9-year-old boy with severe connatal Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease.
