Abstract
Bilateral thalamic infarcts are a rare, but sometimes they can present as memory loss as the chief complaint. So they should always be kept as a differential in a patient with dementia. We report a short case series of 3 patients who presented to our center with the history of memory impairment and turned out to be isolated thalamic infarcts.
