Abstract

GIUDICISSI FILHO, Miguel et al. Bilateral putaminal hemorrhage related to methanol poisoning: a complication of hemodialysis? Case report. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1995, vol.53, n.3a, pp.485-487. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1995000300020.

A case of acute methanol intoxication is presented, in which bilateral putaminal hemorrhage developed after hemodialysis. Even though the patient was initially comatose and profoundly acidotic, favorable outcome was achieved, with long-term neurologic impairments essentially restricted to mild crural paraparesis, retrograde amnesia, and marked visual deficit. A comparative literature review is evaluated.

Keywords : methanol; putaminal hemorrhage; neurotoxicity; coma.
