We report a 5-year-old patient with adrenal insufficiency (AI) who had a subacute monophasic neurologic illness and brainstem and striatal lesions on brain imaging. The prominent electrolyte abnormalities in AI indicate that extra and central pontine myelinolysis is the likely cause. An association between AI and extra pontine myelinolysis has not previously been reported in children.
