NMR changes had been present early in the course of the
successfully treated patient but had resolved with therapy.
This possibility, and the reversibility of CT changes [ 5 ] with
treatment of Wilson’s disease, suggest a prominent role for
edema. Further study will be required to establish the precise
pathological significance and reversibility of NMR abnormalities in Wilson’s disease.

Appropriate warning is not indicated in the manufacturer’s
information sheet regarding the effect of carbamazepine
(Ciba-Giegy) on Coumadin (warfarin sodium) metabolism.
Hansen and colleagues [ I ] reported two patients who experienced reduction in serum Coumadin half-life because of concurrent carbamazepine administration, Kendall and Boivin
[2] reported another, and Penry and Newmark 131 mentioned the problem. Nevertheless, the antagonism seems to
be generally unknown. The postulated mechanism is microsomal enzyme induction [4].
W e have observed this interaction in three patients in our
stroke rehabilitation unit. In a patient already receiving
Coumadin for deep vein thrombosis, the initiation of carbamazepine for treatment of painful neuropathy markedly
altered prothrombin time. Similar problems were observed

in two other patients already receiving anticoagulants who
were placed on carbamazepine.
The carbamazepine effect would not b e apparent in a patient receiving the anticonvulsant who was placed o n anticoagulation therapy unless carbamazepine was discontinued
while the anticoagulant was maintained.
