Chapter

Abstract

In November 2016, an 80-year-old female patient has fallen while walking: after a fall, she could not move her right leg; therefore she searched for a medical help. The patient described she had mild walking problems due to discrete occasional weakness of a right leg, during a month or two before a fall. According to patient medical data, she was taking antihypertensive medications due to arterial hypertension.
