Abstract

In this report, we have presented a diabetic patient with uremia, in which acute Parkinsonism occurred, coupled with acute mental confusion, after a sudden increase in blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinin levels. Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed a unique cytotoxic-type edema in the bilateral basal ganglia during the acute phase. Signal alterations were shown to regress in accordance with the normalized apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values, but irreversible cystic degeneration developed in the globus pallidus, with the very low preceding ADC values.
