Cerebral SPECT imaging has the potential to make important contributions in the follow-up care of patients with Alzheimer's disease. An unusual case of a patient who showed a follow-up cerebral blood flow pattern different from that routinely seen in Alzheimer's disease patients is reported here. Qualitative and voxel-based objective evaluation of follow-up scans revealed improvement in parietotemporal deficits that had been observed on a baseline study. This change was observed without significant further deterioration in ratings by dementia batteries. This case shows that a baseline regional cerebral blood flow study might be necessary for reference and comparison in the proper follow-up care of Alzheimer's disease patients.
