Figure 12 (A-F): Lead toxicity – A 40-year-old worker in pipe manufacturing industry for the past 20 years presented with extrapyramidal features. Axial CT images show calcification of dentate nuclei (A) (black arrow); basal ganglia (black arrow), thalami (curved arrow), and subcortical white matter (black arrowhead) (B). (C and D) T2W Axial MRI shows hypointensity in the dentate nuclei, thalami and basal ganglia, hyperintensity is noted in the cerebellar white matter. (E and F) SWI shows blooming in these regions. Serum evaluation for other metabolic or systemic disorders was normal
