Clinically, the patients have a marked susceptibility to acute sunburns after minimum exposure, facial freckling, increased risk of skin cancer and pigmentary changes that are characteristic of XP.4 The neurological and somatic features are CS-like3 and include growth failure, intellectual disability, delayed development, sensorineural hearing deficit, progeria, failure to thrive, and severe cachexia characterized by deep-set eyes.4 The neuroimaging reveals brain atrophy, ventriculomegaly, tigroid demyelination and microcephaly, findings also characteristic of CS.1,4 Here, we report a case of a 3-year-old girl presenting with clinical features strongly suggestive of XP-CS complex.
Although clinical manifestations are heterogeneous (5,6), the most relevant neurological signs are nystagmus, developmental delay, spasticity, along with neuroimaging supporting aberrant myelination of the Central Nervous System (CNS) compromising primarily the periventricular white matter, with a tigroid striation pattern that responds to the conservation of myelinated islets, and also an alteration of the N-acetyl aspartate and choline profiles on the brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy (5,7).
