Brief Report: PDF OnlyFisher C. M.Clinical Neuropharmacology: October 1992 - p 397-403 Buy Abstract Summary An elderly woman developed an Alzheimer-like subacute dementia as a result of propranolol toxicity. Analysis of the manifestations showed that severe impairment of memory accounted for virtually all of the abnormalities. There is evidence that cerebral reactions to drug toxicity can exhibit patterns that suggest highly selective involvement of functional subdivisions of the brain. © Williams & Wilkins 1992.
