Abstract

Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) and extrapontine myelinolysis (EPM) are recognized complications of hypona-tremia and its overly rapid correction. A 42-year-old woman with uterine cervical cancer had a subacute onset of choreoathetosis on the thirteenth day after a rapid correction of severe hyponatermia. A follow-up brain magnetic reso-nance image (MRI) showed abnormal signal intensity changes in the central pons, putamen, and caudate nucleus. We report an unusual case of central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis, that presented with choreoathetosis. (J Korean Neurol Assoc 19(4):393~395, 2001)
