Molybdenum cofactor deficiency type A (MoCD-A) is an inborn error of metabolism presenting early after birth with severe seizures. Recently, experimental substitution treatment with cyclic pyranopterin monophosphate (cPMP) has become available. Because prenatal data is scarce, we report data of prenatal Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in two cases with MoCD-A demonstrating signs of possible early brain injury. Prenatal MRI can be used for monitoring in MoCD-A to guide decision-making in timing of delivery.
