A patient presented to an urban level 1 trauma center/accredited thrombectomy-capable stroke center for evaluation of suspected traumatic injury and was quickly determined to have symptoms suspicious for acute stroke that included dense hemiparesis with preserved mental status. He received a thrombectomy with an eventual return to neurologic baseline and discharge to acute inpatient rehabilitation 14 days after presentation.
