  • Abstract:

    Three weeks after severe traumatic brain injury (pedestrian hit by a car) and correction of initial intracranial hypertension, a brain MRI is performed in a 22-year-old woman, who remains in a comatose state (Glasgow Coma Scale at 4, with withdrawal to painful stimuli; abolition of photomotor reflex; persistence of corneal and cough reflexes). Fluid-attenuated inversion recovery and T2*-weighted gradient-echo sequences reveal subtle hyperintensities within the brainstem. On susceptibility-weighted imaging, extensive diffuse axonal injuries are identified in the brainstem, thalami, corpus callosum, and frontal lobes, which explain the clinical state (figure).
