Abstract

This is to report arterial spin-labeling (ASL) regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) mapping findings in a case of corticobasal degeneration (CBD). A 68-year-old man gradually developed limb-kinetic apraxia, myoclonus, and rigidity in the left hand and was diagnosed as having CBD. Magnetic resonance imaging and single photon emission computed tomography revealed atrophy and decreased blood flow, respectively, in the right hemisphere, findings that were compatible with CBD. In addition, ASL rCBF mapping demonstrated asymmetrical hypoperfusion areas in locations typical for CBD, proving its potential usefulness for routine clinical differential diagnosis.
