Abstract The growing dependence on electricity in our daily lives has increased the incidence of electrocution injuries. Although several neurological injuries have been described previously, acute stroke due to electrocution is rare. Although he was hemodynamically stable, he remained confused with language defects. MRI of the brain showed acute stroke in the bilateral anterior cerebral artery territory and watershed regions of the left middle cerebral artery territory. MR angiogram incidentally showed A1 segment aplasia of the right anterior cerebral artery. Electrocution is known to cause vasospasm leading to end-organ damage similar to that seen in stroke. In our patient, vasospasm of the left anterior circulation likely led to watershed infarcts in the left parietal lobe and bilateral frontal lobes. Due to aplasia of the A1 segment on the right side, perfusion to both frontal lobes was solely from the left anterior cerebral artery. Introduction Electricity played a crucial role in building modern civilization, and humans have paid the price for it. On an average, people will be electrocuted every year [ 1 ]. Despite improvements in overall safety measures, this number is likely to increase as we depend more on electricity in every aspect of our lives. The severity of injury depends on the type and strength of current and ranges from a barely perceptible tingling sensation to instant death. Even though several neurological injuries have been described before, acute stroke due to electrocution is only reported in a handful of cases. This underreporting might be due to uncommon occurrence or under recognition.

Several decades into the age of molecular medicine, most clinical practice is still, and will continue to be, based mainly on pattern recognition.

Stroke Syndromes is unashamedly descriptive, and this is its main strength. It will be very easy for a busy clinician to dip quickly in and out of this book and extract important clinical information.

Important because the symptoms and signs of a stroke often provide clues to the underlying pathology and hence the most appropriate management. Stroke Syndromes in particular has clearly been a labour of love. The editors have put together a very impressive group of authors for other chapters in both volumes.

It is particularly good to see that European and North American expertise are equally well represented, and that there are several authors from other parts of the world.

Stroke Syndromes concentrates on the clinical manifestations of stroke and does not aim to review the practical issues relating to investigation and treatment.

Uncommon Causes of Stroke covers all aspects of clinical presentation, pathology, diagnosis and management of the rare causes of stroke in more detail than the Warlow book. Overall, there is little of importance in stroke medicine that is not covered by at least one of these three volumes.

On looking for foramen ovale I soon found myself looking up the adjacent entries on Foix—Alajouanine syndrome, Foix—Chavany—Marie syndrome and Fregoli syndrome.


Uncommon Causes of Stroke will be of interest to the generalist as well as the neurologist. Both volumes are well illustrated, particularly Stroke Syndromes, which has over figures. The series of illustrations in the chapter on arterial territories of the human brain are especially detailed and well produced.

The quality of the many CT and MRI brain images and angiographic images is generally excellent, and goes a long way to justifying the price of the books.
