Disulfiram-induced acute organic brain syndrome.


Reversible acute organic brain syndrome is described in a patient receiving disulfiram, 250 mg daily. Slowing of the electroencephalogram (3 to 4 cycles per second) in the occipital region resolved ten days after discontinuation of disulfiram. Acute organic brain syndrome induced by disulfiram is not rare but is often not correlated, and it should always be considered a possibility in patients receiving disulfiram therapy.
