ABSTRACT
Cortical laminar necrosis is characterized by destruction of different layers of the cerebral cortex; most prominently the third layer is affected. We report here a case of a patient who suffered severe hypoxic encephalopathy secondary to cardio respiratory arrest due to bupropion and alcohol overdose and in whom cerebral MR showed changes compatible with cortical laminar necrosis.
