Red List (low evidence)

Vanishing white matter leukodystrophy is an autosomal recessive neurologic disorder characterized by variable neurologic features, including progressive cerebellar ataxia, spasticity, and cognitive impairment associated with white matter lesions on brain imaging.Neurologic deterioration usually begins in late infancy or early childhood, but juvenile- and adult-onset cases have been described. Mild and severe cases have been observed, even within families.>3 cases - green
