Abstract

When cerebral cortical hyperintensities on diffusion-weighted image are seen in patients with suspected acute stroke accompanying seizure, it is necessary to differentiate whether they are caused by infarction or seizure-related change. We report a case of seizure-related cortical hypertensities in a patient with suspected acute infarction. With perfusion MR imaging, we could differentiate from acute infarction.
