• We present a case of progressive bulbar paresis in a 2-year-old child, with appropriate autopsy findings. A review of previously reported cases and a comparison with more extensive literature in Werdnig-Hoffmann disease suggest that Fazio-Londe disease is not unique, but belongs in the spectrum of progressive lower motor neuron disease.
