Noncontrast cranial CT scans taken on admission and scans taken the following day after IV contrast administration showed a solid, intensely enhancing mass in the left temporal region bordered posteriorly by a larger cystic component showing peripheral enhancement (Fig. 26). Faint perifocal edema surrounded the mass. A ventricular drain was placed for relief of new internal hydrocephalus. The patient’s condition deteriorated during her hospital stay. Respiratory failure and sepsis ensued, and the patient Fig.

3 Chest radiograph taken at 10:24 shows dystelectasis of the right lower lobe and aortic elongation. There is no indication of a CVC. Further Case Summary Physical inspection of the somnolent patient revealed that no attempt had been made to place a CVC.

Approximately 1 hour later an anesthesiologist in the emergency department again requested a chest radiograph for the same patient to check for CVC placement.

The prolonged use of carbamazepine tends to lower arginine vasopressin levels, and the regional blood flow and fluid balance adapt to this change. Abrupt discontinuation of the drug leads to a temporary, reactive rise in the arginine vasopressin level, resulting in transient ischemia and transient cytotoxic edema in the splenium of the corpus callosum. This produced the signal pattern seen in Fig. 22. The pathognomonic location in the splenium is attributable to special aspects of local vascular anatomy.
