The case of a 69-year-old woman with chronic paroxysmal hemicrania (CPH) is presented in whom cerebral perfusion was investigated using the flow tracer 99mTc-hexamethyl propylenamino oxime (HMPAO) and single photon emission tomography (SPECT). There was a bilateral hypoperfusion in the fronto-parietal region between attacks--without medication as well as under effective treatment with verapamil. During an attack, however, SPECT investigation showed a normal cerebral perfusion. Further… CONTINUE READING
