Abstract

A 66-year-old man was admitted to our department with anterograde amnesia. He was diagnosed with transient global amnesia (TGA) because of the symptom lasting for several hours and no abnormal findings on MRI and EEG. About a year after the episode, he recurred amnesia lasting only for 20 minutes. MRI diffusion weighted image (DWI) revealed a small hyperintense signal in the right hippocampus, while there was no abnormality on EEG. We diagnosed him with recurrent TGA. This case may be interesting in that symptom duration and MRI-DWI finding are much different between two attacks of TGA.
