Abstract

Patterns of cerebral perfusion in patients with obsessive compulsive disorder were evaluated using single photon emission computerized tomography. Eleven patients, who satisfied the DSM-III-R criteria and Research Diagnostic Criteria for the disorder, were evaluated using the distribution of 99m-Tc-HMPAO as a radiotracer. The Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale was administered to each patient to assess the severity of their symptoms. The images obtained were evaluated qualitativelyand semi-quantitatively by a physician in nuclear medicine who was blind to the patients' diagnoses. Eight of the 11 patients demonstrated asymmetric perfusion of the basal ganglia; the left side showed impaired perfusion in six patients.
