Abstract
With the exception of patients with epilepsy, transient splenial lesion of the corpus callosum (SCC) has been rarely reported. We investigated two young men with temporary encephalopathy. One had a staphylococcal infection, the other had a viral infection. The brain MRI findings of these patients showed a transient focal lesion in the splenium of the corpus callosum. Transient splenial lesions of the corpus callosum might be a non-specific end point of a different disease process leading to cytotoxic edema or osmotic demyelination of the brain.KeyWords:Corpus callosum, Magnetic resonance imaging, Infectious disease
