Reversible T2 hyperintense signal abnormality in the corpus callosum, although frequently seen after diffuse brain injury, has not been well clarified. With some accumulated evidence, we report a case of diffuse brain injury in a 24-year-old man. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated T2 hyperintense signals in the trunk and the splenium of the corpus callosum 12 days postinjury. Echo-planar diffusion-weighted imaging was also performed on the same day, which revealed decreased diffusion… CONTINUE READING
