Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 63-year-old man with an episode of syncope. The patient has a history of left-sided facial pain which was initially though to be secondary to a tooth abscess. He underwent a physical examination and with this, the prevalence of postural hypotension and allodynia which affects the liver edge and trigeminal nerve was being revealed. The article also discusses the occurrence of a diffuse b-cell lymphoma at any point of a person's life.
