Long-term findings on brain magnetic resonance imaging in acute encephalopathy with bilateral striatal necrosis associated with measles

Long-term findings on brain magnetic resonance imaging in acute encephalopathy with bilateral striatal necrosis associated with measles

Journal of Child Neurology 17(10): 776-777

The long-term findings on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a 7 10/12-year-old boy with a history of acute encephalopathy with bilateral striatal necrosis following measles at the age of 22 months are described. At the early stage of illness, brain MRI studies revealed bilateral, symmetric basal ganglia lesions, predominant on the globi pallidi, appearing as hyperintense signals on T1- and T2-weighted images. Six years later, follow-up brain MRI studies showed that the bilateral, symmetric lesions on the globi pallidi persisted with low signal on T1- and high signal on T2 weighted images. At present, the patient has some persistent neurologic signs. These findings suggest that both clinical and neuroradiologic findings may persist in children with acute encephalopathy with bilateral striatal necrosis following measles.
