Optic atrophy and cerebral infarcts caused by methanol intoxication: MRI



Optic atrophy and cerebral infarcts caused by methanol intoxication: MRI



Neuroradiology 39(3): 192-194



We present the MRI findings of cerebral and optic pathway damage in the acute and subacute stages of methanol intoxication. In the acute stage, CT and MRI showed bilateral haemorrhagic necrosis of the corpus striatum and infarcts in the anterior and middle cerebral arterial territories. MRI in the subacute stage demonstrated atrophy of the optic chiasm and prechiasmatic optic nerves in addition to the cerebral infarcts. The patient survived, with total blindness.
