PMID:  1355279     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An eight-month-old boy with clinical features of acute encephalopathy with symmetrical low-density areas in the thalami and the putamen on computed tomography is presented. These particular computed tomography features suggest potential aetiology common to acute encephalopathy with low-density areas in the thalami and infantile bilateral striatal necrosis with an acute onset. The therapeutic consideration of these conditions is also discussed.
