To compare brain perfusion between corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD), we measured regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) semiquantitatively with single-photon emission computed tomography in 10 patients with CBD and 16 with AD. There was no significant difference in age or illness duration between the patients with CBD and AD. Mini-Mental State Examination scores were significantly lower in the AD patients than in the CBD patients. All CBD patients showed asymmetric… CONTINUE READING
