Abstract
We present a case of a 50-year old man who developed mutism and a flaccid quadriparesis within 48 hours of presentation to hospital with severe hyponatraemia. A diagnosis of central pontine myelinolysis was made based on the clinical features and typical appearances on magnetic resonance imaging.
