Quantitative susceptibility mapping reveals brain iron deficiency in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: a whole-brain analysis | SpringerLink

Iron deficiency was observed in several brain regions in children with ADHD, including bilateral striatums, anterior cingulum, olfactory gyrus, and right lingual gyri. In further correlation analysis, the left anterior cingulum was found to show positive correlation with the symptom severity (r = 0.326, p < 0.05).

Conclusions
Our study demonstrated that the iron deficiency in several brain regions might be related with ADHD, which might be valuable for further studies. And QSM might have the potential efficacy in the auxiliary diagnosis of ADHD.
