    This is from the macrophagic myofascitis people. The case report is that of a young CFS patient (Fukuda) with "severe and extensive hypometabolism in the posterior cortical regions (precuneus, parietal, temporal, and occipital), amygdalo-hippocampal complexes, and cerebellum". The patient did not have macrophagic myofascitis, but the authors write that the same pattern is also found in aluminium-induced macrophagic myofascitis patients.

    So this could be helpful for a number of teenage girls who developed "CFS" following Gardisil injections ?

    This link doesn't work on sci-hub any more - or at least it doesn't for me.

    The abstract has now been posted on this link :

    https://ammes.org/2018/12/28/severe...ut-normal-perfusion-in-a-patient-with-cfs-me/

    I've just noticed that the original source for this was from "the other place".

    I also came across a comment on PubPeer on this paper :
