Clinical tales in neurology: a vegetative existence
Forty-eight-year-old JM was admitted to the hospital for minor abdominal surgery. He underwent a general medical and cardiological check-up and a thorough pre-anaesthetic check-up, all of which showed nothing abnormal. On the day of the operation, his wife went to church, lit candles and prayed for him. JM was wheeled into the operation theatre at 9.30 a.m. He thought he would be back in his room in a couple of hours. He was keen to have the operation done, as he planned a holiday with his family in his village.
