Abstract
We evaluated blood flow and oxygen metabolism in a patient with Lhermitte-D uclos disease using brain positron emission tomography. The lesion showed i ncreased blood flow, reduced oxygen extraction fraction and normal metaboli c rates of oxygen. These findings suggest that lesions of Lhermitte-Duclos disease may constitute hamartoma or hypertrophy rather than neoplasm.
