Copper deficiency has been associated with a clinical syndrome, myeloneuropathy. Radiographic changes resembling B12 deficiency in the cervical spinal cord have been described. We present a case of copper deficiency myeloneuropathy, with cervical MR imaging findings resembling B 12 deficiency, which partially reversed following copper supplementation. This is, to our knowledge, the first described case of radiographic improvement with copper supplementation.
