Non contrast brain CT scan of our patient at the time of admission. Note the bilateral hypodensities, which fit the area of the lenticular nucleus (putamen and globus pallidus) on both sides. There is also small hyperdensity at the right globus pallidus (black arrow). This prompted the physician to suspect an infectious process instead of a vascular one. Our patient had bilateral infarction of the lenticular nucleus with early hemorrhagic transformation inside the right one.
