Background Mutant mouse models suggest that the chloride channel ClC-2 has functions in ion and water hornoeostasis, but this has not been confirmed in human beings. We aimed to define novel disorders characterised by distinct patterns of MR1 abnormalities in patients with leukoencephalopathies of unknown origin, and to identify the genes mutated in these disorders. We were specifically interested in leukoencephalopathies characterised by white matter oedema, suggesting a defect in ion and water homoeostasis.
