Metronidazole is an antibiotic, antiprotozoal, and amoebicide agent of the nitroimidazole group. It is one of the commonly used antibiotics in clinical practice and is considered safe. In the past few years, there have been few reports of metronidazole-induced neurotoxicity and characteristic pattern of bilateral symmetrical hyperintensity in the supratentorial white matter, corpus callosum, and within the cerebellum and deep cerebellar nuclei on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).However, none of these describe the temporal progression of lesions on MRI. We present two cases depicting progressive MRI changes including diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) changes of metronidazole toxicity.
