This 75-year-old man was admitted with progressive weakness of the right side of his body. He had been bed bound for 2 months prior to admission. The reason the family brought him was because for the past 3 days, he has been unable to tolerate orally and was semi-conscious. There is no history of fever. He does not smoke or consume alcohol.
He has history of NPC a few years back for which he completed a course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy afterwhich his doctors proclaimed him disease free.
On examination, he is noted to be stuporous and could barely obey simple commands. The power on his right side is 0/5.
This is a slice of the CT brain film:
1. Comment on the film.
2. What could be the cause of his condition?
3. What is the next step of management?
