Abstract

Seizures, alterations in mental and cerebral functions, and ophthalmoplegia are known side effects of contrast agents. Here we report a case of self-limiting monoplegia in a patient after the administration of intracoronary iopromide after coronary angiography which emphasises that, although benign, contrast-induced monoplegia is a neurological disease which requires careful evaluation and accurate management.
