Özet

Steal syndrome has been known since 1960 in the medical literature. It is the pathological process in which blood flows in reverse direction and if vessels supplying the intracranial structures are involved, a variety of neurological symptoms may develop. In this paper, we report a case with left subclavian steal syndrome that presented solely by paroxysmal numbness on the right side of the lip and tongue and discuss the clinical importance from the neurological point of view.
