Abstract

We describe MR findings in three patients who experienced transient cortical blindness following cerebral angiograms. All angiograms were performed by using the same nonionic contrast medium. On the basis of similar clinical and radiologic findings, we believe that this entity is closely related to and probably has the same pathophysiology as posterior reversible leukoencephalopathy.
