Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 39-year old right handed man with a weakness in his right arm and leg. The man was reported to have experienced repeated nosebleeds since he was a child, which is believed to be hereditary since his mother and grandmother experienced the same risk. After an analysis of such disease, the patient was then diagnosed of transient ischemic attack.
