The precise anatomical location and pathophysiology of gait ignition failure (GIF) is poorly understood. We investigated the cerebral perfusion patterns using subtraction brain single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in a patient with GIF. Subtraction brain SPECT imaging revealed an increased activity in the region of right ventrolateral midbrain and ventral medulla.
