Cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) is an autosomal recessive lipid storage disorder characterized by a heterogeneous presentation and a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations. Since early diagnosis and replacement therapy with chenodeoxycholic acid can prevent clinical deterioration, our aim was to develop a diagnostic tool to identify and treat CTX patients at an initial stage of the disease.
