In brief: LEUKODYSTROPHY

It is a group of disorders characterised by dysfunction of white matter of the brain.
It is caused by imperfect growth of the myelin sheath, fatty covering that acts like an insulator around the nerve fiber.Each of the these are due to the defect in the gene that controls the production or metabolism of only one of the component molecule of myelin.These are inherited disorders, but may start spontane.
