What are the MRI findings associated with Wernicke’s Encephalopathy?
According to the cited reference: “MRI findings are represented by symmetric hyperintensity on T2-weighted and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) images and corresponding hypointensity or no abnormalities on T1-weighted images within the medial thalami. The thalamic lesions can show restricted diffusion mimicking infarction on imaging”
