In herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE), the authors noted an evident dissociation between the 99mTc-ethyl cysteinate dimer (ECD) and 99mTc-d,l-hexamethyl-propylene- amine oxime (HMPAO) single photon emission computed tomographies (SPECTs). The patient was a 5-year-old boy with diffuse type of pontine glioma, which was treated with hyperfractionated radiotherapy. Two weeks after the completion of radiation therapy, a lesion suggesting that of HSE was noted in the right frontotemporal region on… CONTINUE READING
