Face of giant panda sign is classically described in Wilson's disease. It is because of high signal intensity in the tegmentum of midbrain with preserved normal signal intensity in the red nuclei, lateral portion of the pars reticulata of the substantia nigra, and relative hypointensity of the superior colliculi. Other causes have also been described in literature, but they are limited.
