Abstract

We describe a 25 year old woman diagnosed with MELAS during an acute stroke-like episode. Global aphasia, migraine-like headaches and hemi-anopsia were her main clinical features. MR imaging revealed extensive conical and subcortical left hemispheric signal abnormalities. [Tc-99m]ECD SPECT scanning revealed crossed cerebrocerebellar diaschisis. Aphasia in the absence of gross hemiparesis can be related to cross-cerebellar diaschisis in MELAS.
