Hypomyelination with brainstem and spinal cord involvement and leg spasticity

Hypomyelination of brainstem and spinal cord involvement, as well as leg spasticity, is a condition that affects the brain and spinal cord. The condition, which is the portion of the brain that connects to the spinal cord, is related to specific regions of the spinal cord and brainstem, in particular. The white matter is made up of nerve fibers and a fatty substance called myelin that insulates the fibers and aids in the rapid transmission of nerve impulses. Early development of motor skills in HBSL may be normal, but mobility issues typically begin within the first year in the infant's first year. Muscle cramps in the legs that worsens over time are a defining feature of HBSL. Most people with HBSL are unable to walk independently. Magnetic resonance imaging can reveal subtle changes in the brains of people with HBSL's HBSL.
