Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis is a rare cause for developmental delay and seizures that results in neurodegeneration. Presented here is a case of a 5-year-old male who presented for MRI following a delay in achieving developmental milestones and epilepsy. MRI was performed demonstrating a thinned corpus callosum and generalized low parenchymal volume with periventricular gliosis. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy showed glutamate/glutamine accumulation and diminished N-acetylaspartate. The diagnosis of neuronal ceroid lipofusciosis was revealed following genetic testing. This case is useful in showing findings of this rare disorder.
