Panagariya Ashok, Sureka R.K., Udainiya D.K.


Central pontine myelinolysis is a demyelinating affection of central pons diagnosed on the basis of characteristic MRI finding in an appropriate clinical setting. The condition has been described as universally fatal; however, recent reports of recovery have been documented. We report a case of central pontine and extra pontine myelinolysis, which presented with parkinsonian features apart from bulbar symptoms and made a remarkable recovery. A short review of the literature follows.
