Case 2

Show Summary Details


An 80-year-old retired engineer attended clinic with his wife. She reported that 2 days earlier, he had become suddenly confused with poor memory, asking the same question repeatedly and appearing disorientated. He complained of headache and was unable to perform his usual activities. These symptoms persisted for approximately 2 hours. He was then tired and a bit ‘muddled’. He had no recollection of the event itself, but was otherwise back to normal. Neurological examination in clinic was entirely normal except that his Abbreviated Mental Test score was 7/10.
