A 36-year-old man who had collapsed and sustained a bruised right shoulder was brought to the emergency department with acute emesis, cephalgia, blurred vision, aphasia, and right hemiparesis. He was confused but able to follow simple commands.
Pertinent physical examination revealed left gaze visual field; right facial droop; tongue numbness and unable to protrude; a decreased carotid upstroke and bruit in the left carotid artery near the angle of the mandible; right-sided strength was 0/5 in both upper and lower extremities with spasticity; sensory response was significantly decreased on the right side; withdrawal from painful stimuli was less pronounced on the right side than the left.
