Neurodegenerative disorders of childhood are complicated diseases with wide range of systematic involvement. These diseases often pose great challenge to clinicians in terms of diagnosis and management. The purpose of this article is to outline a systematic approach to a child presenting with suspected neurodevelopmental regression. Many inherited metabolic disorders present with neural regression. The clinical approach depends upon the age of presentation, site of involvement in brain. Sound clinical knowledge and better approach leads to early diagnosis, better management and above all genetic counselling. As the medical science is in the track of rapid progression several treatment modalities are in the pipeline for neurodegenerative syndromes, early diagnosis and referral to higher centres can bring a better future to the child.
