A 7-year-old girl presented with progressive walking difficulties, spasticity, and cognitive decline with onset at 3 years of age. No seizures, vision, or hearing impairment were reported. The magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed cerebellar atrophy and evidence of iron deposition in the globi pallidi and substantia nigra. The clinico-radiological profile was suggestive of atypical childhood-onset neuroaxonal dystrophy. The patient was found to have compound heterozygous mutations in the PLA2G6 gene confirming the diagnosis.
