Abstract

We report the case of a man admitted to the emergency department for a stroke with an unusual presentation: bradycardia due to Atrial Fibrilation with slow ventricular response. The cerebral CT scan showed a bilateral vertebro-basilar acute ischemic stroke. The evolution was marked by neurological degradation with a Glasgow Coma Scale at 6/15. The patient was admitted to the intensive care unit and intubated. Three days later, he presented a massive hemorrhagic infarction and died shortly after.

Keywords:
