It is widely known that the occurrence of poststroke mood disorders, especially depression, is one of the most frequent complications of stroke.1 Studies evaluating the association of focal lesions with depressive disorder have shown that lesions involving the frontal lobe, caudate, or putamen were more likely to lead to depression than comparable isolated lesions of the brainstem.2,3 To the best of our knowledge, there are no studies in the literature showing the metabolic correlates of poststroke depression that is secondary to an isolated brainstem infarction.
