A 23-year-old woman who presented with a branch retinal artery occlusion followed by encephalopathy showed, by brain magnetic resonance imaging, a nonenhancing lesion in the right parietal gray matter with normal diffusion-weighted imaging. Of 64 reported cases of cat-scratch encephalopathy with documented neuroimaging findings, only 12 (18.8%) have had abnormal imaging findings. The abnormalities have included cerebral white matter lesions, basal ganglia and thalamic lesions, and multifocal… CONTINUE READING
