Differential Diagnosis of TGA

  • A. J. Larner


This chapter considers the differential diagnosis of TGA. Key considerations include cerebrovascular disease (TIA, stroke), epilepsy (transient epileptic amnesia, TEA), and psychological causes, as well as a variety of other causes of transient amnesia (migraine, drugs, hypoglycaemia, head injury). On clinical grounds alone, it is often possible to distinguish TGA from other causes of transient amnesia.
