Cerebrovascular Infarction: Glioblastoma

  • Hrvoje VavroEmail author


While sitting in front of TV with his family on a calm Sunday evening, a 63-year-old man suddenly experienced what looked like tonic seizures of his left arm and face and became unresponsive for a moment or two. Afterwards he had speech difficulties and left facial droop. The patient had no previous health issues. He was immediately brought to an emergency hospital department, and a CT exam of the brain was done (Fig. 5.1).
