A 59-year-old woman suffered from prolonged hypotension with myocardial infarction. Sixteen days after the episode, she showed bradykinesia, gait disturbance, and postural tremor. MRI revealed low signa intensities in the bilateral caudate nuclei and putamen on the T1-weighted image and high signal intensities on the T2-weighted image. PET with 18F-FDG revealed a severe decrease in glucose metabolism in bilateral basal ganglia. It is concluded that prolonged hypotension may induce localized delayed anoxic lesions in basal ganglia.
