Abstract

A 61-year-old man developed transient anterograde amnesia after waking from a nap. Vomiting, slow response and queer behaviors followed. A cerebral MRI showed a left caudate head hemorrhage and a SPECT showed hypoperfusion at left frontal, temporal, parietal, and basal ganglion regions. The verbal memory impairment persisted at one-month follow-up, while the perfusion deficit had improved. This case demonstrates that acute amnesia and confabulation can be the clinical presentation after left caudate head hemorrhage.
