A 38-year-old man was brought to the emergency department by his wife. The patient was unable to give any history, was disorientated in place and time, and did not know why he was in hospital. His wife reported that he had become confused and drowsy during the day and had been complaining of headache. There was no past medical history and he worked as a labourer. He smoked 20 cigarettes a day and was not known to be taking any medication.
