Pre- and posttreatment MR imaging findings in lead encephalopathy.

A 41-year-old man suspected of having lead poisoning was evaluated with MR imaging before and after British antilewisite therapy. The MR imaging findings showed bilateral symmetric involvement of the occipital lobe, affecting predominantly the gray-white matter junction and the subcortical white matter. A right cerebellar lesion was noted, with focal hyperintensities involving the gray-white matter. Similar lesions were seen in the temporal, parietal, and frontal regions. These lesions resolved after chelation therapy.
