Background. Synthetic cannabinoids are recreational street drugs with many known adverse effects. Case presentation. Here we present the case of an atypical cerebral infarction in a patient with a suspected ingestion of synthetic cannabinoids. Conclusion. Although synthetic cannabinoids use is not conventionally associated with stroke, some case reports describe cerebral infarction and myocardial infarction with significant synthetic cannabinoids intake. Emergency physicians should know the association of synthetic cannabinoids with seizures, myocardial infarction, and now possibly ischemic stroke.
