Gülay Kenangil, Dilek Necioğlu, Zeynel Tak, Hulki Forta

Here we presented clinical and radiological features and prognosis of 6 cases. They were admitted to the hospital with sudden onset of unconsciousness. Diffusion weighted MRI showed hyperintensity on bilateral paramedian thalamic region and hypointensity on ADC mapping consistent with acute infarction.

Keywords: Bilateral thalamic infarctions, acute unconsciousness, stroke
