The MRI findings of a patient with diffuse cortical hypoxic brain damage (Adams pattern III) are presented. Besides intense cortical contrast enhancement, a peculiar leakage of contrast medium at the anterior chambers of the eye was observed. The pathogenetic mechanism of this enhancement is discussed.
