The images (A to D) are axial sections of DWI sequence, showing symmetrical diffusion restriction of the cortical at level of frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital lobes ,as well as the head of caudate nucleus and the splenium of the corpus callosum ( White arrow) .
The images (E and F) are coronal sections of Flair sequences, showing cortical hypersignal at the level of frontal, insular and parietal lobes and also hippocampal ( Red arrow).
