Regional cerebral metabolic rate for glucose was determined for six different areas of the gray matter in an 8-year-old girl with late infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. In all regions, the rates were almost half of the control values. The regional cerebral metabolic rate for glucose was relatively preserved in the striatal region and severely reduced in the frontal cortex. (J Child Neurol 1990;5:98-100).
