Abstract
A 25 year old female patient with hyperemesis gravidarum developed mental confusion, gait disturbance and diplopia. MRI of this patient showed high-signal lesions in thalamus, floor of the fourth ventricle, periaqueductal gray matter, mammillary body, and corpora quadrigemina, The high signal areas correlated well with the anatomical distribution of pathologic lesions in wernicke's encephalopathy previously described.
