  • Look Inside

A rare case with cerebral infarction in the region of the anterior cerebral artery after minor head injury is reported.

A 44-year-old male sustained a blow in the occipital area and became unconscious for a moment when he was driving a car and was involved in a rear-end colli-sion. There being no significant signs, he drove home. About 30 minutes after the traffic accident, he felt weakness in the right limbs and speech difficulty and immediately visited our clinic.

The patient was alert, but right hemiparesis and mild motor aphasia were present. There was no apparent evidence of head injury.
