Metachromatic Leukodystrophy mnemonic

Inspired by the case I saw in the OPD yesterday, I thought I'd share a mnemonic I use to remember the same.

"Aryl has many Colorful look a like, Cerebral brothers. They are Clumsy and Crazy."

Metachromatic Leukodystrophy mnemonic

Aryl: Arylsulfatase A deficiency
Colourful: Metachromatic
Look a like: Leukodystrophy
Cerebral bros: Cerebroside sulfate accumulation
Clumpsy: Ataxia
Crazy: Dementia

That's all!
