Abstract

MR using a susceptibility-weighted sequence and dynamic contrast enhancement with gadolinium demonstrated relative hyperperfusion of the right temporoparietal cortex in a patient in focal status epilepticus. A single- photon emission CT (SPECT) scan also demonstrated hyperperfusion of the right temporoparietal cortex. Perfusion MR, SPECT, and electroencephalogram normalized when the seizures ended.
