Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a progressive subacute demyelinating disease caused by neurotropic papova virus, usually in immunocompromised patients. As the number of cases of AIDS increases so close the incidence of PML, the ability to diagnose PML noninvasively is of increasingly importance. A case of PML is presented with conventional magnetic resonance and diffusion-weighted images (DWI) performed at two consecutive months. Conventional MR imagings were performed on a 0.5 T and DWI was performed on 3 T scanner at follow-up.
