We studied a 79-year-old woman within 3 h of the onset of a motor aphasia and a right hemiparesis. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) showed a 24% decrease in the perfusion of the left middle cerebral artery territory and a 16% reduction in the per fusion of the right cerebellum. A mild naming difficulty was the neurological deficit at the end of the SPECT ex-Abbreviations used: CCD, crossed cerebellar diaschisis; ROI, region of interest; SPECT, single photon emission computed
