A 48-year-old man was found collapsed at work. He cried out briefly and then fell to the floor. He was seen to shake and stop breathing for a short period, and he was taken to hospital immediately. On arrival in the emergency department he was comatose, flexing with the left arm, and localizing with the right. He was snoring and not making any sounds. His pupils were sluggishly reactive to light and his blood pressure was 200/110mmHg.
