INTRODUCTION: As identification of acute stroke is greatly dependent on neuroimaging, negative CT and MRI in the context of focal neurological deficits demands heightened awareness of technology limitations. It has been described in the literature that posterior circulation strokes may not be readily seen on MRI for up to 24 hours. We present a case of Locked in Syndrome whose initial presentation was bilateral lower extremity weakness and dysarthria with negative MRI findings.
