- Diffuse Brain Hypoperfusion in Advanced Leukoencephalopathy with Calcifications and CystsJournal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular DiseasesVol. 25Issue 8
- PreviewLeukoencephalopathy with calcifications and cysts (LCC) is an uncommon condition of unknown etiology occurring in children and adults. Pathological findings include obliterative hyalinosis of the small vessels, myelin loss, intense gliosis, Rosenthal fiber formation, microcalcifications, and hemosiderin deposits. Herein we report a 55-year-old man with LCC documented 10 years ago, in whom we examined brain perfusion by pseudocontinuous arterial spin labeling technique. We demonstrated diffused hypoperfusion of the affected white matter (WM) and of the subcortical gray matter (GM) and cortical GM in the patient in comparison to a group of healthy control subjects, using both qualitative evaluation and region of interest analysis.
