Abstract

Carbon monoxide poisoning remains a common neurologic problem as it causes more than one-half of fatal poisonings in many countries leading frequently to acute and delayed brain injury. Mild carbon monoxide intoxication is difficult to diagnose as symptoms can be nonspecific and therefore can be easily misdiagnosed. Common acute and delayed clinical presentations and their associated neuropathology and neuroimaging findings are discussed. Treatment remains limited and outcome is highly variable.
