Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pancreatic encephalopathy is an uncommon condition found in patients with acute pancreatitis. The present report shows the interest of MRI in the diagnosis of this disorder. Patchy white matter signal abnormalities, resembling plaques seen in multiple sclerosis, may reflect the lesions that are found in the cerebral white matter of post-mortem confirmed cases.
