Cortical MRI findings associated with rapid correction of hyponatremia.


Journal Article

The authors describe two patients with clinical manifestations of the osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS) and unusual MRI findings of gadolinium-enhancing peripheral cortical abnormalities. They propose that these represent extrapontine manifestations of ODS because neither patient had a notable hypoxic-ischemic insult. Recognizing this imaging appearance is important because prognosis in ODS may be less uniformly grim than for hypoxia-ischemia.
