BACKGROUND/AIMS Deposition of paramagnetic substances in basal ganglia, resulting in increased signals in T1-weighted magnetic resonance images (bright basal ganglia), is frequently seen in liver cirrhosis. The present study describes the prevalence of bright basal ganglia and its clinical significance in patients with long-standing portal vein thrombosis in the absence of liver cirrhosis. METHODS Six patients with angiographically proven complete portal vein thrombosis and cavernomatous… CONTINUE READING
