AbstractWe herein describe the case of a patient with chronic renal failure complicated by star fruit poisoning. T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted MR imaging showed hyperintense lesions at the thalami and right temporooccipital cortex. Single voxel proton MR spectroscopy revealed elevation of lactate and (31)phosphorous MR spectroscopy revealed elevation of inorganic phosphate and decrease of phosphocreatine and nucleoside triphosphates. The imaging and metabolic changes indicated energy deprivation, with subsequent cortical necrosis proved at autopsy.
