Case 5

Show Summary Details


A 78-year-old woman was admitted to hospital having had a tonic clonic seizure. She had been well until 3am on the day of admission, when she had woken up with a sensation of the room spinning. She had vomited and was unable to sit or stand, owing to unsteadiness. The unsteadiness and nausea resolved but she stayed in bed during the day. Her family called for an ambulance when she began to fit. There was no past medical history and she was on no medication.
