Free full text article: Metronidazole induced encephalopathy: case report and discussion on the differential diagnoses, in particular, Wernicke`s encephalopathy

Abstract
Metronidazole induced encephalopathy is a rare central nervous system toxicity, which may be completely reversible with prompt cessation of metronidazole usage. We present a case of metronidazole induced encephalopathy in a 59-year-old man with a history of Whipple`s procedure for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour. The characteristic magnetic resonance imaging features of metronidazole induced encephalopathy and its main differential diagnosis, Wernicke`s encephalopathy, are discussed.
