Abstract

Central pontine myelinolysis is a demyelinating disorder with characteristic magnetic resonance features. Findings on Tl-weighted scans include a symmetric region of low signal involving the basilar pons with sparing of the descending corticospinal tracts as well as the peripheral pontine tissues. The T2-weighted images show an area of high signal corresponding to the abnormal region identified on Tl-weighted scans. Associated extrapontine demyelinating lesions are also demonstrated.
