Case Study
Neurocutaneous melanosis is a type of phakomatosis characterised by dermal, leptomeningeal and parenchymal melanocytic naevi. Here we describe a case of a 13-year-old boy with dermal and brain parenchymal melanosis without any leptomeningeal melanosis.

    We report a child affected by Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE), which was unsuspected clinically. MRI suggested the correct diagnosis and prompted appropriate thiamine replacement. WE is a difficult condition to recognise, especially in children, and MRI may be useful in the diagnosis of the disease.

    We report two fatal cases of methotrexate (MTX)-induced disseminated necrotising leukoencephalopathy (DNL) in which MRI was repeated from the onset.
