Abstract

We present a case of cerebral fat embolism after long-bone fractures with changing imaging findings on follow-up magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We also discuss the usefulness of diffusion-weighted MRI and susceptibility-weighted MRI in diagnosis of cerebral fat embolism, especially in cases with indistinct findings on conventional MRI.
