Cerebrovascular Infarction: Primary Brain Lymphoma
A 65-year-old lady suddenly developed speech difficulties and numbness in the left arm and leg which progressed to limb weakness. She did not have any other symptoms. She was rushed to the emergency hospital unit. On examination there was no limb weakness, only central left-sided facial palsy; during examination she developed left-sided facial myoclonus, as well as myoclonus of the first and second finger of her left hand which was felt to be an epileptic seizure and promptly resolved on intravenous antiepileptic therapy. A brain CT examination was done (Fig. 2.1).
