In the case of this gentleman then, we simply have to work backwards from his symptoms to understand the current ‘lie of the land’. Let us focus on the most pressing aspect first - his apparent central nervous system functional change. If the ability to do sums is generally centred in the parietal lobe and his loss of function was transient, a vascular cause is implied. The main arterial supply to this area is the middle cerebral artery. Moreover, working back still, we can trace the supply back through the vascular tree of the head and neck to the carotid artery (Grays Anatomy). We can construct then, a highly credible hypothesis based anatomically on the scenario that many of you would already suspect. It is highly likely that, somewhere, the ** carotid tree ** was influenced by the patient’s own interference with it. In short, when he stretched his neck, some change in carotid structural-functional nature altered the blood supply to the parietal lobe. .............. With this sort of argument laid out on paper, rather than being clinically reasonable, it sounds more like a promise of execution. Interestingly though, this patient was investigated for carotid integrity employing Doppler examination for blood flow.
