Abstract

Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is a clinical condition characterized by myelin destruction in the rostral part of the pons. It is commonly found in association with alcoholism, rapidly corrected hyponatraemia and electrolyte abnormalities. We describe here an unusual case of CPM occurring in a patient with cerebral malaria.
