The article discusses a medical condition involving a patient who committed suicide by methanol intoxication. The patient was unconscious with generalized rigidity, bilateral clonnus and extensor plantar responses, and abnormal muscle stretch reflexes. Symmetric areas of low attenuation in the peripheral white matter of both cerebral hemispheres were revealed by computed tomography (CT) scans of the brain.
