Abstract
We report a patient who presented with neurological deterioration 26 days after a motor vehicle accident. A 25-year-old man crashed a car onto farmland from a height of approximately 3 meters. Neurological deterioration including ataxia and visual disturbance became apparent 26 days after the accident. Brain magnetic resonance imaging did not reveal any abnormality, but brain single photon emission computed tomography showed mild hypoperfusion in the left frontotemporal lobe. An ophthalmic examination revealed no specific abnormality, but visual-evoked potentials revealed prolonged latencies in both eyes. We propose that this neurological deterioration might have resulted from traumatic axonal injury. As such, future studies should examine preventive strategies against delayed deterioration in patients with head trauma.
