Case 41 introduces a 69-year-old retired postal worker who has had a syncopal (fainting) episode and is later admitted to the hospital. He reports that for the past year he has experienced transitory periods of dizziness accompanied by vertigo and nausea. These episodes have been accompanied by blurring of vision and usually last from only a few seconds to a few minutes. In the past month, they have occurred more frequently and have interfered with his daily activities. Yesterday evening, he experienced a brief fainting spell while seated.
