Abstract:
In this case report, OCD symptoms are shown in a 66-year-old man who was previously healthy and had a dilated perivascular space in his left lentiform nucleus. This article adds the experience of treating a patient with OCD brought on by structural injury to the lentiform nucleus to recent imaging studies implicating the basal ganglia in the development of the condition.
