Abstract

Sensory motor cortex, frontal lobe, and, more recently, temporal lobe hypoperfusion were described in attention deficiency hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults and children. We report a 12-year-old boy with worsening ADHD. Emotional and behavioral state evaluation met the criteria for ADHD combined with a generalized anxiety disorder. Diagnostic multi-imaging included CT and 2 SPECT studies. Right sphenoidal bone fibrous dysplasia was diagnosed by CT. Tc-99m ECD and Tc-99m MDP-SPECT slices registration and fusion revealed right temporal lobe hypoperfusion, bordering on the metabolically active sphenoid lesion.
