PIANA, Domenica  and  GUZMAN, Eduardo. Radiation-Induced Leukoencephalopathy: Case Report And Literature Review. Rev Ecuat Neurol [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.3, pp.77-81. ISSN 2631-2581.

Radiation-induced leukoencephalopathy presents clinically as a cognitive disorder chronologically associated with radiotherapy. The characteristic findings are: acute reversible edema, demyelination and vascular necrosis associated with thrombosis. The diagnostic test of choice is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the treatment is with corticosteroids. We present a case of a patient with brain metastases who developed a post-radiotherapy leukoencephalopathy.

Keywords : leukoencephalopathy; demyelination..
