Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere (BVVL) syndrome is a rare motor neuron disorder of childhood, which forms a continuous spectrum with Fazio-Londe syndrome. It is an autosomal-recessive inherited disease caused by mutations in intestinal riboflavin transporter genes. We describe a child with genetically proven BVVL syndrome where prompt treatment with riboflavin showed good results.
