Microscopic examination of the HLA-DR and CD68 (DakoCytomation, Glostrup, Denmark) immunostains did not show any significant differences in the distribution and cellularity of macrophages or in activated microglial cells throughout the telencephalon and were almost absent inside the encephalomalacic pseudocyst of the right occipital lobe.
Bartynski and Boardman [4] suggested the presence of focal or confluent vasogenic edema in the "posterior" parietal or occipital lobe region as well as in additional regions that are most commonly involved such as the frontal lobes, inferior temporal-occipital region, and cerebellum.
The MR imaging findings of heroin-induced toxic leukoencephalopathy in our patient are lesser known, with predominant involvement of the frontoparietal lobes rather than the posterior limb internal capsules, occipital lobes, cerebellum or brainstem.
27,28] We used the average CPL of the inter-hemispheric path lengths to assess the level of overall inter-network integration (termed LInter-H) between the left and right hemispheres and also assessed the level of inter-subnetwork integration between the left and right frontal lobes (LInter-F), temporal lobes (LInter-T), parietal lobes (LInter-P), occipital lobes (LInter-O), and subcortical structures (LInter-S).

Patterns of changes in our set up were typical including white matter oedema mostly localized to the parieto occipital lobes in all the seven cases however in two patients they have extensive involvement of frontal lobes and basal ganglia also none of the lesion took up the gadolinium contrast when administered, on repeat follow up scan in 3 patients there was complete resolution of changes.
