Only a few case studies describe reversible parkinsonism after organophosphate poisoning and their brain imagings are found to be normal. However, we experienced chronic, irreversible parkinsonism by acute organophosphate poisoning with bilateral basal ganglia lesions found on a brain MRI. We suggest that brief, large amounts of organophosphate intoxication can produce irreversible parkinsonism according to individual susceptibility and further studies including the investigation of insecticides as an environmental factor of parkinsonism should be done using neuroimagings.
