We report of a woman aged 52 years born to consanguineous parents and seeking treatment for progressive dementia and delusion. Neurologic examination revealed dementia and emotional instability, indifference, and confabulation. There was also mild spasticity of the bilateral lower limbs. MRI revealed diffuse white matter hyperintensity on T2-weighted images accompanied by hypointense areas on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery images. A homozygous missense mutation was identified in EIF2B5.
