213 - 218.
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is associated with dopaminergic depletion in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and abnormalities of myelination. Both mechanisms may lead to deficits in cognitive functioning. Studies of cognitive outcome in children treated with PKU at an early stage have suggested that there are benefits in remaining on diet into adolescence.
