We report two boys with Menkes' syndrome who underwent cranial MRI and MR angiography (MRA). In both, CT and MRI revealed progressive cerebral atrophy with a subdural haematoma or effusion. Delayed myelination or dysmyelination of the white matter was suggested. Tortuosity of the cervical and intracranial vessels was well demonstrated by MRA, obviating more invasive conventional angiography should it be thought necessary to demonstrate the characteristic systemic vascular changes of this syndrome.
