Case 12

Show Summary Details


A 54-year-old male sales manager was admitted to hospital for investigation of sudden onset left leg weakness and pins and needles in the left leg and hand lasting for 1 to 2 minutes and occurring up to 4 times a day. He had been investigated 3 years previously following an episode of dysarthria and confusion, at which time an MRI brain scan was reportedly normal and a diagnosis of migraine had been made. There was no other past medical history. His mother had a history of dementia and recurrent strokes in her late sixties and his father had angina. Two sisters were well. He did not smoke and was on no medication.
