Abstract

This is a new case of Susac syndrome in a 27-year-old woman with polymorphic neurological disorders, her brain MRI showed multifocal hyperintense signals on T2-weighted images with possible effects on the corpus callosum. However, visualization of an occlusion in the retinal arterial branch of the right eye and hypoacusia on the right side allowed confirmation of the diagnosis. In this case report, we describe the imaging aspects of Susac syndrome and demonstrate that brain MRI allows the syndrome to be diagnosed at an early stage.
