A 69-year old woman presented with acute inability to stand and walk. She had a previous diagnosis of hypertension, which was poorly controlled. Two days before the onset of symptoms, she had transient difficulty in standing, lasting for a few minutes.

Neurological examination showed an inability to stand or walk, with preserved ability to sit. Cerebellar signs, sensory deficits, pathological deep tendon reflexes, aphasia, apraxia, or amnesia were absent.

On the first day of admission, brain computed tomography scan was normal. Five days later, brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a right-sided corpus callosum infarct [Figure 1].
