Patients with WD require lifelong treatment with chelating agents (D-penicillamine) or zinc. Liver transplantation is performed for fulminant hepatic failure. • T2 hyperintensity may involve subthalamic and cerebellar dentate nucleus • elevated lactate in basal ganglia and CSF on MRS Creutzfeldt–Jakob Disease (12) • lesions are bright on DWI • prominent cortical involvement • posteromedial thalamic involvement in variant form Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (7) • • • • lesions have decreased diffusivity in the acute phase cortical involvement frequently present T1 hyperintensity around the internal capsule lactate on MRS Methanol Intoxication (5) • putamen primarily affected, frequently with hemorrhage • possible white matter edema Background WD is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder caused by mutations in the ATP7B gene located on chromosome 13.

On FLAIR images, the lesions may be hyperintense to CSF. The finding of multiple cysts/dilated perivascular spaces in an immunosuppressed patient is highly suspicious for cryptococcal infection. Cryptococcomas appear as enhancing nodular intraaxial lesions (usually in the deep gray matter and cerebellum) or as intraventricular lesions with enlarged choroid plexus (choroid plexitis), leading to hydrocephalus. They are T2 hyperintense similar to pseudocysts, range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters, and may have surrounding edema.
