Delayed leukoencephalopathy is an uncommon complication of hypoxic-ischemic events of different etiologies, including carbon monoxide intoxication. We present a case of a 40-year-old male patient who was admitted with rapidly progressive neurocognitive and behavioral deficits. There was a history of accidental carbon monoxide intoxication one month before, presenting with loss of consciousness and short hospitalization, followed by a complete clinical recovery. The imaging studies in the delayed...

The syndrome of delayed toxic–hypoxic encephalopathy is triggered by a sedating toxin that precipitates a period of cerebral hypoxaemia. The syndrome is rare and has a classic biphasic course with a seemingly complete recovery from the first episode of coma followed by a dramatic deterioration. We describe the diagnostic challenge provided by such a case. Day 1 : A 37-year-old man took 30 ml of methadone, 150 mg diazepam, plus cannabis and alcohol. On waking the next day, he took 20 ml more meth...

Delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy (DPHL) is a demyelinating syndrome characterized by acute onset of neuropsychiatric symptoms days to weeks following apparent recovery from coma after a period of prolonged cerebral hypo-oxygenation. It is diagnosed, after excluding other potential causes of delirium, with a clinical history of carbon monoxide poisoning, narcotic overdose, myocardial infarction, or another global cerebral hypoxic event. The diagnosis can be supported by neuroimaging evide...

SUMMARY: Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy may cause early deep white matter abnormalities on MR imaging that usually progress to include gray matter and basal ganglia change. Toxic leukoencephalopathy due to heroin inhalation predominantly causes cerebellar and posterior cerebral radiologic change. Both conditions rarely present clinically and radiologically in a delayed manner with subsequent recovery. We report a case of reversible delayed posthypoxic/toxic leukoencephalopathy with no clinical ...

Delayed demyelination is a rare and poorly understood complication of hypoxic brain injury. A previous case report has suggested an association with mild-to-moderate deficiency of arylsulfatase A. We describe a 36-year-old man who recovered completely from an episode of hypoxia related to drug overdose, and 2 weeks later progressed from a confusional state to deep coma. MRI showed diffuse white matter signal changes, and brain biopsy demonstrated a noninflammatory demyelinating process. Proton m...

We report a patient with delayed postanoxic demyelination who had pseudodeficiency of arylsulfatase A, reducing his enzyme activity to 10 to 30% of normal. This may have implications regarding the pathogenesis of postanoxic demyelination.

Delayed post-anoxic encephalopathy (DPE) not related to carbon monoxide has rarely been reported and usually carries a poor prognosis. We describe two surviving patients with such DPE and its neuro-otological characteristics. The DPE was caused by shock due to hemorrhage in a 21-year-old student, and by severe hypoxia and hypotension in a 60-year-old man. Our findings suggest that this type of DPEmight not be rare, if the patients who suffered from severe anoxia, marked hypotension or both are c...
