Callosal disconnection syndrome in symptomatic female carrier of Perizaeus-Merzbacher disease

Callosal disconnection syndrome is a rare neurological condition caused by damage to the interhemispheric connecting fibers and can result in left callosal ideomotor apraxia (Heilman) [1], left agraphia, and left tactile anomia. This condition has been observed in cerebrovascular diseases [2], multiple sclerosis [3], and Marchiafava-Bignami disease. However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no reports describing callosal disconnection syndrome caused by leukodystrophy or hypomyelinating disorders.
