[Diagnostics and treatment of Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome patients with an alcohol abuse].
Ugeskr Laeger. 2013 Apr 01; 175(14):942-4.UL

Abstract

Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is a condition with high morbidity and mortality and occurs as a consequence of thiamine deficiency. Clinical symptoms are often ambiguous and post-mortem examinations show that the syndrome is underdiagnosed and probably undertreated. There is sparse clinical evidence concerning optimal dosage and duration of treatment. This article reviews the current literature and concludes that all patients with a history of alcohol abuse should be treated with high dosage IV thiamine for an extended period of time, albeit further research is needed.
