TIA is an important risk factor for ischemic stroke. Early diagnosis and management can result in a significant reduction in the risk of subsequent stroke. We report the case of a 54-year-old man who developed a 5-second episode of leg weakness and in whom a tight stenosis of the appropriate carotid artery was found. TIAs can sometimes be brief and have an atypical presentation, requiring a high level of suspicion for early diagnosis.
