We report the clinical and dopamine transporter/D2 receptor single-photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) imaging findings in a 39-year-old woman with a 24-year history of dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD). The SPECT imaging of the dopamine transporter with [(99m)Tc]TRODAT-1 is helpful in differentiating DRD from early-onset idiopathic parkinsonism. In the later clinical course, the [(123)I]IBZM SPECT is also helpful in differentiating these two conditions. The patient showed a dramatic and… CONTINUE READING
