    Corpus callosum infarcts are rare, constituing 0.6% of cerebral infarcts, most likely due to a rich blood supply from three main arterial systems. These infarcts may present with slowly evolving and non-localizing neurologic signs and symptoms that suggest the diagnosis of neoplasm rather than...
