Delayed Encephalopathy Associated with Carbon Monoxide Intoxication

Acute carbon monoxide intoxication may cause coma and death. Patients usually recover within days after prompt therapy. However, in a small number of patients, severe clinical deterioration may develop after a period with no apparent abnormality. This is called delayed type encephalopathy. We present MR imaging findings of a case of delayed encephalopathy due to carbon monoxide intoxication.
