Özet

A patient was admitted with frequent episodes of transient neurologic symptoms formerly described as "capsular warning syndrome". The neurologic examination revealed right-sided hemiplegia, diminished pinprick, decreased light touch and extensor right plantar response. The only documented risk factor was hypertriglyceridemia, and diagnosis was anterior choroidal artery territory infarction, This report critically reviews the clinical features of this vascular lesion and the MRI findings.
