Julius Caesar (100–44 BC) is considered one of the greatest military leaders and conquerors of all time. His health status has been the source of a longstanding debate within the historical and medical community who generally suggests epilepsy and Ménière disease as the two prime differentials when considering his morbus comitialis (disease of the assembly hall).

Differences in Cardiac Etiologies for Ischemic Stroke in Young and Middle-Aged Patients: A Single-Center Experience in Taiwan
TLDR
Cardiologist consultations with thorough cardiac workups for AIS patients can reveal many cardiac findings in both young and middle-aged patients, which leads to a subsequent change in treatment in both groups.

Final notes on: Response to Galassi et al. concerning the paper by Turgut et al. “Three mythic giants for common fœtal malformation called ‘cyclopia’: Polyphemus, Tepegöz and Grendel”, Child’s Nervous System, DOI 10.1007/s00381‐019–04,207‐y
These figures are to be attributed to the fact that Polyphemus is a key figure to classical culture, most importantly in the West, as well as Grendel is, thanks to its belonging to AngloSaxon
