, 4 ]. According to Laurent-Vannier et al. [ 2 ], one additional case was described by Richard-Cremieux in her doctoral thesis in 1990. This patient was a 35 year-old female who also attempted suicide by a gunshot injury through her left temporal region. Brain imaging revealed bilateral frontotemporal lesions. Unfortunately, further information was not available.
Interestingly, two patients were affected by bilateral fronto-opercular Lesions [ 2 , 3 ], which is the topographical hallmark of the syndrome [ 1 ]. Of note, however, is that bilateral lesions occurred
averse factors, notably signal dropouts due to magnetic inhomogeneity and low signal-to-noise ratio, making it difficult to obtain consistent activation patterns in this region. However, even when consistent signal changes are identified, they are likely to be due to nearby vessels, most notably the basal vein of Rosenthal. Using an accelerated fMRI sequence with a high temporal resolution (TR = 333 ms) combined with susceptibility-weighted imaging, they showed how signal changes in the amygdala region can be related to a venous origin [ 16 ]. This finding is raising
