The aim of this study was to investigate possible correlations of the cognitive impairment with abnormalities of regional cerebral blood flow and electroencephalogram in children with (Down's Syndrome) DS. Nine patients with DS were evaluated by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in combination with clinical findings, electroencephalography(More)
Aicardi syndrome is a rare X-linked dominant genetic disorder characterized by infantile spasms, agenesis or hypogenesis of the corpus callosum, and chorioretinal lacunae.

Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is known as the most common form of inherited mental retardation. In our study, brain perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) was performed in a 6 year-old boy diagnosed with FXS. Diffuse bilateral uptake of Technetium-99m hexamethyl propylene amine oxime (99mTc-HMPAO) was noted in his orbits, as well as(More)
