A 70-year-old man is brought to the hospital with an episode of dizziness. He still feels unwell when he is seen 30 min after the onset. He was well until the last 6 months, since when he has had some falls, irregularly.

On some occasions, he lost consciousness and is unsure how long he has been unconscious. On a few occasions he has fallen, grazing his knees, and on others, he has felt dizzy and has had to sit down but has not lost consciousness. These episodes usually happened on exertion, but once or twice they have occurred while sitting down. He recovers over 10–15 min after each episode.
