To determine whether regional cerebral functional abnormalities exist in patients with apraxia of lid opening (ALO). Cerebral glucose metabolism was examined by positron emission tomography (PET) in 11 patients (8 women and 3 men, age 48–69 years); 10 with ALO accompanied by blepharospasm and 1 patient with pure ALO. Eleven normal volunteers (6 women and 5… CONTINUE READING
