Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

MD. Prof. Nevzat Erdil

Maple syrup urine disease (MSUD) is a disease that causes ketoacid accumulation in body. Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is an important imaging modality for the diagnosis. Two children were diagnosed with MSUD at the neonatal period. They had uncontrolled ketosis and epileptic seizures although they were in compliance with their medical nutrition. Their DWIs were similar and showed high signal intensity localized within the myelinated white matter areas. Both of the patients were treated with living donor liver transplantation. The patients with classic form of MSUD are normal at birth. If the disease is not diagnosed and treated early, it can lead to serious neurological complications. Most researchers conclude that, the best choice for detecting MSUD encephalopathy in newborns is DWI. The traditional treatment of MSUD had been a protein-restricted diet until the liver transplantation became an alternative and better option for the cure of the patients.
