We consider the Cauchy problem for the Perona-Malik equation $$u{t}=\mathrm{div}\left(\frac{\nabla u}{1+
\nabla u
{2}}\right)$$ in a bounded open set $\Omega\subseteq\re^{n}$, with Neumann boundary conditions.

If $n=1$, we prove some a priori estimates on $u$ and $u_{x}$. Then, extending such estimates to a discrete setting, we prove a compactness result for the semi-discrete scheme obtained by replacing the space derivatives by finite differences.

Finally, for $n>1$ we give examples to show that the corresponding estimates on $\nabla u$ are in general false.
