We describe a case demonstrating reversible MR imaging findings, including diffusion-weighted imaging changes in association with metronidazole (Flagyl) toxicity. The diagnosis of metronidazole toxicity was made clinically and supported by the MR imaging findings. Quantitative apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps demonstrated edema with associated increased ADC values within the dentate nuclei of the cerebellum on initial imaging. Follow-up imaging performed 8 weeks after cessation of metronidazole therapy demonstrated resolution of imaging findings, including diffusion changes.
