Figure 1: Brain MRI showed hyperintense red nuclei in T2W/ FLAIR axial (a and b), and T2W coronal (c) sequences which gave the appearance of 'Bright eyes of Panda'. The red nuclei appeared 'bright' in diffusion weighted imaging (d) and 'dark' in apparent diffusion coefficient map (e) suggesting restricted diffusion. MRI showing 'Face of Giant Panda' in an unrelated patient (f) with WD is provided for comparison
