L.P.A. Voogd, C.M.M.J.F. de Jong, M. Thobokholt, L.J.J.C. Wagener-schimmel, A.X. Rutten

In this case report we describe a 17-year-old boy with severe behavioural disorders, apathy and cognitive decline who was eventually diagnosed with X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (x-ald). If a patient presents with a combination of psychiatric and neurological problems, metabolic diseases such as x-ald should be included in the differential diagnosis.
