  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 43-year-old man suddenly experienced severe headaches and involuntary flexion-extension move-ments of four limbs, which were followed by hypertonic extension of the limbs lasting for a few hours. Two days later, he experienced generalized tonic seizure without loss of consciousness. After the seizures, he remained hemiparetic on the right side. His past medical history was non-remarkable, and the histories of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, head trauma and significant infectious diseases were all denied.
