MRI Characteristics of Globus Pallidus Infarcts in Isolated Methylmalonic Acidemia
AJNR 36:194-201, Baker, E.H.,et al, 2015
See this aricle in Pubmed

Article Abstract
The staged pattern of globus pallidus infarcts in isolated methylmalonic academia suggests a nonuniform, regionally specific cellular susceptibility to metabolic injury, even for patients having milder biochemical phenotypes. In support of this hypothesis, the delineation of lacunar infarcts in the pars reticulate of the substantia nigra, a tissue functionally and histologically identical to the globus pallidus interna, supports the concept of cell-specific pathology.
