Explanation:
The diagnosis of ALD should be considered in four distinct clinical settings:
•Boys with symptoms of attention deficit disorder, who in addition show signs of dementia, progressive behavioral disturbance, vision loss, difficulty in understanding spoken language, worsening handwriting, incoordination, or other neurological disturbances.

Very long-chain fatty acids

Males: The most important laboratory assay is the measurement of the concentration of very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) in plasma.

When ALD is suspected based on clinical symptoms, the initial testing usually includes plasma very long chain fatty acid (VLCFA) determination using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry

Onset of the childhood form of ALD, which is the most severe, affects only boys and generally develops between the ages of 4 and 8 years. Early symptoms can be similar to those of attention deficit disorder (ADD), such as difficulty paying attention, mild confusion or forgetfulness, or difficulty in school, are all potential signs that that the brain has been affected by ALD
