Figure 10 (A and B): Metronidazole toxicity – A 31-year-old man presented with acute onset ataxia and dysarthria. History revealed intake of metronidazole for 2 months. (A) Axial FLAIR images reveal bilateral symmetrical hyperintensity in the dentate nuclei (white arrowhead), central tegmental tracts (white arrows), dorsal pons, and (B) posterior putamina (white arrows) and globi pallidi (white arrowheads). There was no evidence of diffusion restriction or postcontrast enhancement (not shown)
