Abstract

A young boy presented with monoparesis of the left arm. MRI disclosed bilateral enhancing thalamic lesions. Biopsy results and subsequent clinical history were most compatible with postinfectious or acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. This represents one of the first cases of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis affecting the thalami, established by biopsy. This uncommon disease entity is reviewed and how it may affect the deep grey matter is described.
