Temporolimbic and prefrontal cortical lesions can produce pathological aggression; however, involvement of these structures has not been established in aggressive patients with dementia. OBJECTIVE To study the relation between regional brain perfusion and aggressive behavior in patients with dementia. METHODS We compared the pattern of regional cerebral perfusion determined with technetium Tc 99m-labeled hexamethylpropelene… CONTINUE READING
