The objective of this study is to review the presentation, outcome and aetiology of central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis (CPEPM) in a tertiary hospital center. The study method is a case series and included identification of patients from University of Montreal Health Centre archives database (1995–2007). All diagnoses were confirmed by neuroimaging or brain autopsy. Twelve individuals (25–66 years old) presented heterogeneous manifestations. Co-morbidities included diabetes insipidus… Expand

Paper Mentions

Central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis: a systematic review
TLDR
ODS is found to have a good recovery in more than half of cases and its mortality has decreased with each passing decade, and favorable prognosis is possible in patients of ODS, even with severe neurological presentation. Expand
Central Pontine Myelinosis and Osmotic Demyelination Syndrome.
TLDR
Clinicians of all specialties should be familiar with the risk constellations, clinical presentation, and prevention of ODS, a secondary neurological illness resulting from a foregoing primary disease. Expand
Central pontine myelinolysis after liver transplantation: case report
TLDR
The case report of a 40-year-old female patient who had previous history of biliary cirrhosis secondary to autoimmune hepatitis and liver transplantation was performed; subsequently developed alteration of awareness, hydroelectrolytic disturbances and abnormal findings in brain imaging. Expand
Wide central pontine, bulbar and thalamic myelinolysis with sequela.
TLDR
A case that developed extensive myelinolysis due to the "rapid" correction of hyponatremia as a result of hyperemesis gravidarum is reported, with bilaterally symmetric hyper-intense areas in the thalamus and cerebral crus. Expand
More often striatal myelinolysis than pontine? A consecutive series of patients with osmotic demyelination syndrome
TLDR
Clinical and radiological features of consecutive patients with ODS detected over 1 year are described, remarkable for the high incidence of extrapontine lesions, much more common than pontine involvement. Expand
Données actuelles et spécificités en réanimation Central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis . Recent data and management in the intensive care unit
TLDR
Although earlier reports on CPM/EPM have shown very poor outcome, recent reports suggest better outcome with improved survival and recovery, however, no study has clearly identified any potential prognostic factors in CPM / EPM. Expand
Central Pontine Myelinolysis
TLDR
Central pontine myelinolysis is a component of osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS) and is characterized by damage to regions of the brain after rapid correction of metabolic disturbances such as hyponatremia. Expand
Risk Factors for Central Pontine and Extrapontine Myelinolysis After Liver Transplantation: A Single-Center Study
TLDR
A marked variation of perioperative serum Na+ remains the main risk factor even in patients without preexisting hyponatremia; however, isolated hypernatremia may be solely responsible in some cases. Expand
Acute brachial neuritis with central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis in a renal transplant recipient
TLDR
A 26-year-old male who received a renal transplant 7 months ago has seizures, left upper and lower extremity weakness, unsteadiness and diplopia, and all his neurological findings fully recovered, except for weakness in his left upper extremity; however, atrophy in the left shoulder musculature developed.

TLDR
A comprehensive review of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, imaging, and therapy of movement disorders associated with involvement of the basal ganglia in ODS, and a video recording depicting the spectrum of delayed movement disorders seen after recovery from ODS are presented.

Outcome of central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis (n = 44)
TLDR
It is concluded that patients with cerebral myelinolysis survive if the nonspecific secondary complications of transient illnesses such as aspiration pneumonia, ascending urinary tract infection with subsequent septicemia, deep venous thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism can be avoided. Expand
Central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis: the osmotic demyelination syndromes
  • R. Martin
  • Medicine
  • Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry
  • 2004
TLDR
The clinical, pathological, and aetiological features of the disease, the dilemma facing clinicians treating patients with severe hyponatraemia, and treatment opportunities are discussed. Expand
Central Pontine Myelinolysis
TLDR
In this paper, the large-scale introduction of magnetic resonance imaging has increasingly facilitated the antemortem diagnosis of CPM, although the radiological findings lag behind and do not necessarily correlate with the clinical picture. Expand
Possible causes of central pontine myelinolysis after liver transplantation.
TLDR
The occurance of CPM may be associated with such factors as hyponatremia, rapid rise of serum sodium concentration, plasma osmolality increase postoperation, the duration of operation, and high CsA levels. Expand
Benign type of central pontine myelinolysis in alcoholism
TLDR
Nine alcoholic patients with central pontine myelinolysis (CPM), who showed a favorable prognosis, are reported, and magnetic resonance imaging showed that their pontine lesions tended to shrink. Expand
Central pontine myelinolysis: a hitherto undescribed disease occurring in alcoholic and malnourished patients.
TLDR
Three, perhaps four, cases were observed in which the myelin sheaths of all the nerve fibers in the central part of the basis pontis had been destroyed in a single, large, symmetric focus, leading to death in about 13 and 26 days. Expand
Myelinolysis after Correction of Hyponatremia
TLDR
The patient had no segmental brain stem signs, and the neurologic deficit was too limited to be explained by thrombosis of the basilar artery itself, so the patient died after 22 days of hospitalization. Expand
Central Pontine Myelinolysis: Delayed Changes on Neuroimaging
TLDR
It is concluded that imaging studies performed early during the illness may be unremarkable, but still a diagnosis of central pontine myelinolysis should be suspected and, most importantly, a repeat imaging study might be required in 10‐14 days to establish the diagnosis. Expand
Neuropsychiatric and neuropsychological manifestations of central pontine myelinolysis.
TLDR
It is concluded that neuropsychological deficits can accompany CPM, and that these deficits do not necessarily diminish simultaneously with the radiological or clinical neurological findings but may persist for a longer period of time, or even become permanent. Expand
Neurologic sequelae after treatment of severe hyponatremia: a multicenter perspective.
TLDR
It was concluded that patients with severe chronic hyponatremia are most likely to avoid neurologic complications when their electrolyte disturbance is corrected slowly. Expand
