Abstract provided by Publisher
 
Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a neuropsychiatric syndrome
of patients with chronic liver disease. In addition to
ammonia levels, increased manganese levels in the brain
are also considered as having role in the pathogenesis
of HE. On cranial T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging
(MRI), hyperintense and symmetrical globus pallidi
linked to the manganese deposition are characteristic
for patients with cirrhosis of the liver. We presented here
a case of portal-systemic encephalopathy demonstrated
with typical MR images and increased blood manganese
concentration.
