Author information

The authors describe an infant with vanishing white matter disease with demyelinating peripheral neuropathy. Sequence analysis of EIF2B5 gene showed that the patient was a double heterozygote, with novel missense mutation CGA-->CAA in codon 269 of exon 6, resulting in the replacement of an arginine residue with glutamine.
