Perfusion MRI demonstrates crossed-cerebellar diaschisis in sickle cell disease


O'Gorman, R L; Siddiqui, A; Alsop, D C; Jarosz, J M (2010). Perfusion MRI demonstrates crossed-cerebellar diaschisis in sickle cell disease. Pediatric Neurology, 42(6):437-440.

Abstract

Arterial spin labeling is a fully noninvasive magnetic resonance perfusion imaging method, ideally suited to pediatric perfusion imaging. We describe an 8-year-old boy with sickle cell disease, extensive right-hemispheric cerebral infarction, and crossed-cerebellar diaschisis apparent on arterial spin labeling perfusion magnetic resonance imaging. To our knowledge, this is the first case of crossed-cerebellar diaschisis demonstrated with arterial spin labeling, highlighting the potential value of perfusion magnetic resonance imaging in the clinical evaluation and follow-up of crossed-cerebellar diaschisis, and the suitability of arterial spin labeling methods for routine perfusion imaging in pediatric patients.
