• A man with cystinuria developed, at the age of 23, a neurological disorder with relapses and remissions similar to multiple sclerosis. This is the third documented case of cystinuria with central neuraxis lesions, and it is suggested that neurological complications may occur in cystinuria more frequently than is generally recognized.
