Abstract
Hanging is one of the most common causes of suicidal death. Most hanging victims are dead when discovered, and hence there are few reports of near-hanging patients or survivors of a hanging injury. We experienced a patient with motor aphasia who survived a hanging injury. Consecutive workup revealed a cerebral infarction on the left middle cerebral artery territory, which was considered to be the cause of his aphasia. Key Words: Cerebral infarction, Hanging, Patent foramen ovale
