Clinical Examination

video

It has been a while since I wrote. There is nothing more important in short case examination and PACES than to see more and more cases everyday and to practice again and again what you would do in your exam. Neurology is a very interesting field.....

You can see in the video, movements of the left lower limb.....

The question is ..
is this a movement disorder, seizure, a voluntary movement or something else ?

I saw this patient today and thought that many who read this will learn something from this.

(Do not miss this in the exam !)
