Case 53

Show Summary Details

Preview

A 72-year-old man was referred by the neurologists with a 2-year history of progressive difficulty with mobility. He was previously very active and enjoyed long walks outdoors, but these have been curtailed recently because of a number of falls. On even ground he finds he has slowed and on uneven ground he frequently trips. His wife has become somewhat frustrated with his deterioration. In addition he is reported by his family as being ‘less sharp’ than he used to be and he is no longer able to complete crosswords. They also say he has become forgetful at times. His GP referred him to a neurologist where an MRI scan of the brain was performed (Fig. 53.1) and he has been referred for a neurosurgical opinion.
