Case 6

Show Summary Details


A 74-year-old man was referred to the TIA clinic by his GP. One week previously, he had developed sudden-onset difficulty in using his right arm and leg whilst gardening. On direct questioning, he described a mild weakness of the right limbs that had gradually resolved over a few days. He had no past medical history and was normally fit and active, and his hobbies included playing bridge competitively.
