Wernicke's encephalopathy in a child: case report and MR findings.
- Published Article
- Publication Date
Mar 01, 2001
We report a child affected by Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE), which was unsuspected clinically. MRI suggested the correct diagnosis and prompted appropriate thiamine replacement. WE is a difficult condition to recognise, especially in children, and MRI may be useful in the diagnosis of the disease.
