Radiological Presentation of a Patient With Multiple Sclerosis and Hepatic Disorder


In this case study, we presented the radiological characteristics of a 43-year-old female patient diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Following mitoxantrone administration, she developed liver failure. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) revealed multiple periventricular lesions in T2 and bilateral involvement of putamen and Globus Pallidus (GP) areas in T1 sequences.
