Figure 1: Brain magnetic resonance imaging depicts hyperintense signals in the red nuclei (curved arrows) and the peri-aqueductal gray on T2- weighted (a), fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) (b), and diffusion-weighted sequences (c) resembling "face of the giant panda with bright eyes". Hyperintense signals characteristic of metronidazole neurotoxicity are evident in the cerebellar dentate nuclei (straight arrows) on T2-weighted (e), FLAIR (f), and diffusion-weighted sequences (g). The signals are iso-to hyperintense on apparent diffusion coefficient sequence (d and h). Inset shows an image of the giant panda (L) and its inverted layout (R) for comparison
