Abstract

Significant deficiencies of both fat- and water-soluble vitamins have been reported to occur after malabsorptive bariatric surgery. However, despite the potential for neurologic manifestations of such deficiencies, few cases of central neurologic dysfunction have been reported. Our group previously reported reversible neurologic dysfunction as an unusual manifestation of vitamin deficiency in a postjejunoileostomy patient. We report on a second case of reversible neurologic dysfunction associated with severe, prolonged vitamin deficiency many years after jejunoileostomy. Neurologic function returned to normal with vitamin repletion. Patients who have undergone malabsorptive surgery are at risk of late metabolic complications and should be closely monitored.
