respiratory chain metabolic toxins

A number of toxins affect the respiratory chain and result in typical changes within the brain.


Radiographic features

They typically result in hypoxic injury to the basal ganglia, initially manifesting as high T2 signal changes on MRI with associated restricted diffusion on DWI and ADC. The pattern of involvement differs somewhat depending on the toxin, and as such is discussed separately in each condition.
