Bilateral Temporal Lobe MRI Changes in Uncomplicated Hypoglycemic Coma

     BF Boeve, DG Bell and JH Noseworthy

Abstract:   We report bilateral temporal lobe MRI findings in a patient following an episode of prolonged hypoglycemia uncomplicated by coexisting anoxia, hypotension, acidosis, drug intoxication, infection, or status epilepticus. The MRI findings are discussed in relation to the experimental and human data on hypoglycemic neuronal injury.
