PURPOSE Neuro-imaging studies with (99m)Tc-HMPAO SPECT in fibromyalgia (FM) patients have reported only limited subcortical hypoperfusion. (99m)Tc-ECD SPECT is known to provide better evaluation of areas of high cerebral blood flow and regional metabolic rate. We evaluated a homogeneous group of hyperalgesic patients with FM using (99m)Tc-ECD SPECT. The aim(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine whether the follow-up of pain processing recovery in hyperalgesic fibromyalgia (FM) could be objectively evaluated with brain perfusion ethyl cysteinate dimer single photon computerized tomography (ECD-SPECT) after administration of ketamine. MATERIALS AND METHODS We enrolled 17 hyperalgesic FM women patients(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to investigate the specific clinical correlate of brain SPECT perfusion abnormalities reported in fibromyalgia. METHODS We performed a whole-brain voxel-based correlation analysis involving regional cerebral blood flow and various parameters related to pain (Visual Analog Scale, Tubingen Pain Behavior Scale, and(More)
To the Editor: Bartonella spp. cause 2% of cases of blood culture– negative endocarditis (1). Early diagnosis of Bartonella spp. infectious en-docarditis, is challenging, especially for patients with preexisting valvular heart disease. A diagnosis for these patients requires bacterial culture, sero-logic testing, or molecular detection in serum or tissue(More)
We showed the first image of (18)FDG-PET, which leads to a diagnosis of lymphoma in an atypical polyarthritis. About 4% of patients with lymphoma or leukemia suffered from rheumatologic paraneoplastic symptoms like arthralgia and about 10% of the patients with rheumatologic or neurologic clinical symptoms develop a solid cancer or hematological neoplasm.(More)
