Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation (NBIA) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by abnormal accumulation of ferritin in globus pallidus of brain. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of brain demonstrates a characteristic ‘eye-of-the-tiger’ sign. We describe a case of NBIA in a child with classical clinical and MRI of brain features.
