Wernicke Disease

Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is a brain disorder due to thiamine deficiency.

Causes
Wernicke’s encephalopathy and Korsakoff syndrome are believed to be two stages of the same condition.

Wernicke’s encephalopathy is caused by damaging changes in the brain, usually due to a lack of vitamin B1 (thiamine).
