The Patient Undergoing Neuroradiologic Procedures
A 46-year-old woman presented with a history of focal Scizures for 7 years, slowly progressive left-side weakness of the extremities and face, and gait disturbance beginning approximately 3 years prior to admission. She also had numbness of the left side of her body and face. Past medical history was otherwise remarkable only for occasional asthmatic attacks, relieved by nonprescription inhalers. She took no other medications. An allergy to shellfish was noted. On admission to the hospital, phenytoin (Dilantin®), dexamethasone (Decadron®), and ranitidine (Zantac®) were prescribed.
