Article Abstract
While presentations may vary in individual patients, the essentials of history, clinical examination, laboratory evaluation, and neuroimaging lesion pattern can be efficiently directed to differentiate the various etiologies of deep gray matter nuclei lesions. In this review we focus on the etiologic classification and diagnostic approach top acute and chronic conditions that manifest on neuroimaging with bilateral symmetric lesions of deep gray matter nuclei.
