Unilateral temporal lobe stroke causing ischemic transient global amnesia: role for diffusion-weighted imaging in the initial evaluation.


Ischemia has been proposed as a cause of transient global amnesia (TGA), but proof has been lacking. The authors performed magnetic resonance imaging on a 77-year-old woman with classic TGA at 4 hours and at 6 days after the onset of symptoms. Her initial diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and apparent diffusion coefficient imaging suggested an acute infarct… (More)
