Magnetic resonance imaging in neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL) demonstrates cerebral and cerebellar atrophy, T2-hyperintensity of the lobar white matter and thinning of the cerebral cortex. The association of these findings, although non specific, can be observed in all the different forms of NCL, narrows the differential diagnosis of the infantile progressive encephalopathies and may suggest the diagnosis.
