Cranial computed tomography in Whipple's disease.


Cranial computed tomography (CT) in a 58-year-old man disclosed enhancing lesions in the medial right temporal lobe and the right pons. Biopsy of the sural nerve was positive for Whipple's disease, and one of the temporal lobe lesions showed unprecedented histological findings. This case, to our knowledge, is unique in its demonstration of cranial CT findings in association with Whipple's disease. It is suggested that a cranial CT scan with the use of intravenous contrast material should be performed in patients presenting with the signs or symptoms of Whipple's disease.
