Cerase and colleagues1 described a typical case of transient ischemic attack (TIA) that supported the tissue-based definition of TIA2 with a series of dynamic neuroimaging findings. We agree that this case clearly meets the new definition of TIA, and the reported neuroimaging findings may be used for the neuroimaging definition of TIA. However, we have some concerns about the diagnostic analysis of this case.
