A 90-year-old man was referred by his GP to the emergency TIA clinic with sudden-onset right arm weakness 2 days previously, accompanied by discomfort over the top of his head. He had subsequently had difficulty shaving and performing fine motor tasks with his right arm. He had otherwise been feeling well. He had a past history of hypertension but no other risk factors for cerebrovascular disease. He was taking aspirin (started by the GP on the day after symptom onset), bendroflumethiazide, and candesartan.
