Anees A. Sindi MBChB

Abstract: Objective To describe the neurological manifestations and neuroimaging of heatstroke patients. Materials and Methods We extracted data retrospectively from patients files and described their neurological manifestations and radiological features. An experienced brain-imaging radiologist reviewed and analyzed patients radiographs to report on signs of abnormality. Results This group included fifteen patients, eight males (53 %) and seven females (47 %), with an average age of (51.2 10.1) years. Seven patients underwent brain imaging (CT scan), yet abnormal findings were detected in one patient images only. On the initial CT it showed bilateral thalamic and brainstem diffuse hypo-densities. The follow-up CT scans showed acute hemorrhage in the pons and 4th ventricle. There was third intra-ventricular extension of blood, with mild hydrocephalus. Conclusion The study presented non-specific neurological findings that were associated with heatstroke patients. These findings may affect management and potential complicationsprognosis.
