A 40-year-old alcoholic man developed Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. His examination showed ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and memory difficulties. His cranial magnetic resonance imaging scan showed increased signal in the paraventricular regions of the thalamus on T-2 weighted, diffusion and axial fluid-attenuated inversion recovery sequences consistent with the syndrome. The ophthalmoplegia resolved with thiamine administration; however, his memory did not improve.
