Vanishing white matter is an autosomal recessive leukoencephalopathy linked to mutations in the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B. It is a disease of infants, children and adults who experience a slowly progressive neurologic deterioration with episodes of rapid clinical worsening and eventually leading to death. We report a classical case to highlight its clinical significance.
