Cortical Involvement: Cortical Laminar Necrosis and Hemorrhage Demonstrated with Susceptibility-Weighted MR Phase Images Wernicke encephalopathy (WE) is an acute neuropsychiatric condition due to an initially reversible brain lesion caused by depleted intracellular thiamine levels in neurons. Most of the affected patients are malnourished alcoholics; however, WE has also been associated with other conditions. The typical MR imaging features are symmetric hyperintensity on T2-weighted images in… CONTINUE READING
