Abstract

In 3 patients, carbon monoxide poisoning was followed by a modification of habits and personality without definite mental deterioration, but with loss of initiative, which led the patients to lose all their previous interests and to spend most of their time in bed. CT scans showed bilateral calcification of globi pallidi in one patient and pallidal hypodensities in another.
