A young man presented with a short-lasting history of febrile infection, neuropsychologic deficits, ataxia, and seizures. MR imaging revealed fully reversible signal intensities (T2, diffusion-weighted imaging with a decreased apparent diffusion coefficient) in the splenium of the corpus callosum and both posterior hemispheres. EBV infection must be added to the list of differential diagnoses… CONTINUE READING
