Seven HD gene positive individuals under the age of 21 years are described with clinical examination and proton-MR-spectroscopy (1H-MRS) pro.les of the putamen. Despite clinical variability, the predominate 1HMRS abnormality is elevated glutamate, expressed well beyond the con.nes of the basal ganglia, and low striatal creatine.
