A 75 yr old male being worked up for vision problems has an MRI that reveals multiple,small lobar hemorrhages in the right occipital and left parietal areas. His Past medical history includes evaluation one year ago for sudden right arm weakness. At that time,MRI demonstrated a small lobar hemorrhage in the lefft frontal area. this pt. most likely suffers from which of the following:

A. Carotid Artery atherosclerosis
B. Cardiac Embolism
C. Hypoxic encephalopathy
D. Hypertensive encephalopathy

I will give the answer in a day.
