Delayed posthypoxic leucoencephalopathy after suicide attempt with opioids
Delayed posthypoxic leucoencephalopathy (DPHL) is a rare condition with manifestation of neurological and neuropsychological symptoms, following an acute hypoxic condition with an intermittent recovery period of four weeks. MRI findings show symmetric subcortical white matter lesions. We present a patient admitted with symptoms and brain MRI-scan consistent with DPHL. Four weeks prior the patient had tried to commit suicide with opioids. DPHL should be considered in patients with subacute onset of neurological and neuropsychological symptoms after an acute hypoxic condition of the brain.
