Differential Diagnosis Artery of Percheron Infarction • bilateral medial thalamic and rostral mesencephalic lesions Deep Venous Thrombosis (11) • symmetric thalamic lesions with possible extension and hemorrhage • high T1 signal of intraluminal clot in the internal cerebral veins • filling defect on contrast-enhanced images and absence of flow on MRV/CTV Encephalitis; Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) (112) • usually also multifocal involvement of the gray and white matter • usually patchy and asymmetric Extrapontine Osmotic Myelinolysis (66) • often associated with central pontine involvement (central pontine myelinolysis) • external capsule, putamen and caudate nucleus often affected • osmotic myelinolysis and WE may coexist Primary CNS Lymphoma (158) • usually low to isointense T2 signal • mass effect, avid enhancement, surrounding vasogenic edema Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) • spinal cord and optic nerve involvement Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (7) • • • • acutely thalamic increased T2 signal, normal to decreased T1 signal usually T2 hyperintensity in (perirolandic) cortical areas low ADC in the acute phase T1 hyperintensity around the posterior limb of the internal capsule later on Leigh Disease (10) • thalamus, basal ganglia and brainstem involved • low ADC in the acute phase Krabbe Disease/Lysosomal Genetic Defects (9) • decreased T2 and increased T1 signal of the thalamus Background Although alcoholism is a common predisposing factor for the development of WE, the disease can also be caused by malignancy, total parenteral nutrition, abdominal surgery, prolonged vomiting, hemodialysis, diarrhea, magnesium depletion, unbalanced nutrition, and infections.

Patients with juvenile (onset at 2–6 years) and adult (onset at 10–40 years) forms usually exhibit a slower progression of the disease with dysarthria, extrapyramidal dysfunction, dementia, psychosis, and depression. Differential Diagnosis Krabbe Disease • dentate nuclei usually involved while signal abnormality in the basal ganglia is lacking • white matter disease does not spare the corpus callosum • presence of optic nerve enlargement and cranial nerve/spinal roots enhancement Fucosidosis • additional T2 hypointensity and T1 hyperintensity of the globi pallidi Status Marmoratus • hyperdense thalami on CT • white matter signal changes associated with global brain atrophy Toluene Toxicity • • • • diffuse atrophy loss of differentiation between the gray and white matter T2 hypointensity may also involve basal ganglia older patients (teenagers, adults) Background GM2 gangliosidoses are rare lysosomal storage disorders caused by autosomal recessive mutations in the genes encoding b-hexosaminidase A and/or B, and GM2 activator glycoprotein.
