Ventral paramedian pontine lesion involving 6th and 7th fascicles and the pyramidal tract; Lateral rectus palsy; Fovilles syndrome. Lower pontine tegmental lesion involving PPRF,6th N,7th N. Thus a medial brainstem syndrome will consist of the 4 M's and the relevant motor cranial nerves, and a lateral brainstem syndrome will consist of the 4 S's and either the 9-11th cranial nerve if the lesion is in the medulla, or the 5th, 7th and 8th cranial nerve if the lesion is in the pons Occlusion of paramedian branches of basial artery results in Medial pontine syndrome (Foville syndrome). This is similar to medial medullary syndrome but can be localized by the findings of CN VI (medial strabismus due to lateral rectus paralysis and lateral gaze paralysis if PPRF is involved) and VII lesions (LMN type of facial palsy) The most common brainstem stroke syndrome seems to be the lateral medullary syndrome (Wallenberg syndrome) 1. Clinical presentation Each brainstem stroke syndrome has a characteristic clinical picture according to the involved area, however, generally, there is ipsilateral cranial nerve palsy and contralateral hemiplegia/hemiparesis and/or.
If this video helped you, please subscribe to my channel, it's *always* free Medial Pontine Syndrome This condition is also known as Foville's syndrome, caused by the blockage of the paramedian and the short circumferential branches of the basilar artery. The part of the brain affected is the pons. The structures of the pons affected by the blockage are

Lateral medullary syndrome is a neurological disorder causing a range of symptoms due to ischemia in the lateral part of the medulla oblongata in the brainstem.The ischemia is a result of a blockage most commonly in the vertebral artery or the posterior inferior cerebellar artery. Lateral medullary syndrome is also called Wallenberg's syndrome, posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA. Pontine stroke, also known as pons stroke or pontine cerebrovascular accident, is a type of brain stem stroke that can cause symptoms like locked-in syndrome, impaired breathing, and loss of consciousness. Doctors and therapists will work with the patient to recover as much function as possible
Circle of Willis. A 59-year-old male presents with sensory changes on the right side of his face, left side of his body, and dizziness. He also reports some trouble with swallowing, and his wife noticed that his voice sounds hoarse. Past medical history is significant for hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus 3. There are 4 cranial nerves in the medulla, 4 in the pons and 4 above the pons (2 in the midbrain) 4. The 4 motor nuclei that are in the midline are those that divide equally into 12 except for 1 and 2, that is 3, 4, 6 and 12 (5, 7, 9 and 11 are in the lateral brainstem) The 4 medial structures and the associated deficits are: 1 Abducens nerve paralysis can also occur in the setting of medial pontine syndrome, which typically results from occlusion of the paramedian branches of the basilar artery and subsequent ischemia of the medial aspect of the pons. Other symptoms associated with medial pontine syndrome include contralateral hemiplegia and contralateral diminution. MLF syndrome is caused by injury or dysfunction in the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF), a heavily-myelinated tract that allows conjugate eye movement by connecting the paramedian pontine reticular formation (PPRF)-abducens nucleus complex of the contralateral side to the oculomotor nucleus of the ipsilateral side

Locked-in syndrome (LIS), also known as pseudocoma, is a condition in which a patient is aware but cannot move or communicate verbally due to complete paralysis of nearly all voluntary muscles in the body except for vertical eye movements and blinking.The individual is conscious and sufficiently intact cognitively to be able to communicate with. Background . Thalamic lesions are seen in a multitude of disorders including vascular diseases, metabolic disorders, inflammatory diseases, trauma, tumours, and infections. In some diseases, thalamic involvement is typical and sometimes isolated, while in other diseases thalamic lesions are observed only occasionally (often in the presence of other typical extrathalamic lesions). <i>Summary</i>
Mnemonic persistent activity in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) constitutes the neural basis of working memory. To understand how neuromodulators contribute to the generation of persistent activity, it is necessary to identify the intrinsic properties of the layer V pyramidal neurons that transfer this information to downstream networks.

The responsible lesion is an extensive paramedian pontine lesion that involves the MLF and either the CN6 nucleus or the PPRF (parapontine reticular formation). If the INO affects the left eye, the lesion is on the right (same side as the eye with the complete conjugate gaze palsy) The oculomotor examination begins after examining visual acuity and visual fields. This chapter deals with the examination of five aspects of ocular function: fixation, saccadic movements, pursuit movements, compensatory movements and opticokinetic nystagmus. The monograph by Leigh and Zee (1983) and the book by Miller (1985) are excellent sources of further information Nystagmus is defined by rhythmic, abnormal eye movements with a slow eye movement driving the eye off the target followed by a second movement that brings the eye back to the target.The movement can be horizontal, vertical, torsional or a combination of these movements. Nystagmus can be jerk (named for fast phase) or pendular, variable amplitude and frequency, and can be worsened or improved. The infarction involves the medial aspect of the red nucleus with the rubrodentate fibers, CN III nucleus and superior cerebellar peduncle 1-4. History and etymology The syndrome was first described by Henri Claude (1869-1945), a French neurologist, in 1912 5
The modified Rankin scale is commonly used to quantify functional outcome in individuals who suffer a neurological event. The scale was initially described by Rankin in 1957 to assess the outcome of cerebrovascular accidents 1.It has subsequently been modified 2,3 and has been used in a wide variety of clinical contexts (e.g. stroke, glioma and traumatic brain injury) C. Pontine paramedian reticular formation D. A and C. Correct answer: A. Medial longitudinal fasciculus.

POEMS syndrome is a rare blood disorder that damages your nerves and affects other parts of your body. POEMS stands for these signs and symptoms: Polyneuropathy. Numbness, tingling and weakness in your legs — and over time, maybe in your hands — and difficulty breathing. This is an essential feature in the diagnosis of POEMS syndrome The syndrome of light-near dissociation, limited upgaze (Parinaud's syndrome), and retractory nystagmus on attempted upgaze is strong evidence for a dorsal midbrain lesion. H. Periaqueductal Gray The periaqueductal gray is part of the reticular formation activating system, although its relation to the reticular formation in pons and midbrain is. Anterior choroidal artery syndrome is a rare entity characterized by the triad of. hemiplegia; hemianaesthesia and; contralateral hemianopia; This occurs as a result of cerebral infarction in the anterior choroidal artery territory.. The syndrome may also be associated with neuropsychological disorders, including left neglect syndrome in right-sided lesions and disorders of speech in left. A profound anterograde memory deficit for information, regardless of the nature of the material, is the hallmark of Korsakoff syndrome, an amnesic condition resulting from severe thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency. Since the late nineteenth century when the Russian physician, S. S. Korsakoff, initially described this syndrome associated with polyneuropathy, the observed global amnesia has. Cerebellar hemorrhage is a form of intracranial hemorrhage and is most frequently seen in the setting of poorly controlled hypertension, although this can of course also be secondary to an underlying lesion (e.g. tumor or vascular malformation) or due to supratentorial surgery (see remote cerebellar hemorrhage)..

However, this role is assumed to depend on inputs from the hippocampus Wallenberg syndrome is a condition that affects the nervous system. Signs and symptoms may include swallowing difficulties, dizziness, hoarseness, nausea and vomiting, nystagmus, and problems with balance.Some people have uncontrollable hiccups, loss of pain and temperature sensation on one side of the face, and/or weakness or numbness on one side of the body
Following the initial description of HINTS to diagnose acute vestibular syndrome (AVS) in 2009, there has been significant interest in the systematic evaluation of HINTs to diagnose stroke and other less common central causes of AVS. This trend increased with availability of the video head impulse test (video-HIT). This article reviews the original papers and discusses the main publications. The medial temporal lobe atrophy (MTA) score, also known as Scheltens' scale, is useful in distinguishing patients with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer disease from those without impairment 2 is helpful in the assessment of patients with possible dementia (see neurodegenerative MRI brain - an approach)..

the cerebellum is derived from the metencephalon and is found. dorsally to the pons and rostral medulla which are attached by cerebellar peduncles. between the cerebellum and this portion of the brainstem you will find the. fourth ventricle. the cerebellum contains. the vermis and flocculonodular lobes which play an important role in is the Medial Dorsal (MD) because it is present through most of the rostral-caudal extent of the thalamus. It is most obvious in level 13, but you should recognize it at many levels. The medial dorsal nucleus is the only nucleus in the medial group, and it receives two kinds of inputs. Part of this nucleus receives pain afferents from the LSTT. Upgaze paralysis is a feature of the dorsal midbrain syndrome as a result of the lesion's effect on the posterior commissure (lesion A). Downgaze pathways also originate in the rostral interstitial nucleus of the medial longitudinal fasciculus but probably travel more ventrally medial surface of the hemisphere anteriorly and the middle cerebral artery supplies most of the lateral surface of the hemisphere as well as deeper structures of the forebrain. The posterior circulation is supplied by the vertebral arteries which fuse at the caudal end of the pons to form the basilar artery Human brain Cerebral lobes: the frontal lobe, parietal lobe and occipital lobe Details Latin Cerebrum Greek ἐγκέφαλος (enképhalos) μυαλό (myaló) Precursor Neural tube System Central nervous system Artery Internal carotid arteries, vertebral arteries Vein Internal jugular vein, cerebral veins, external veins, basal vein,terminal vein, choroid vein,cerebellar veins Identifiers.
Amygdala, region of the brain primarily associated with emotional processes. The name amygdala is derived from the Greek word amygdale, meaning almond, owing to the structure's almondlike shape.The amygdala is located in the medial temporal lobe, just anterior to (in front of) the hippocampus.Similar to the hippocampus, the amygdala is a paired structure, with one located in each. ADC pseudonormalization is a normal phase encountered in the subacute stage of ischemic stroke and represents an apparent return to normal healthy brain values on ADC maps which does not, however, represent true resolution of ischemic damage.. ADC pseudonormalization is seen typically around 1 week following ischemic stroke and is thought to be due to a combination of cell wall breakdown and. Hypothalamus is an important part of forebrain located just below the thalamus. It consists of groups of neurons that are divided into. two-zone, lateral zone and medial zone. Both zones have their own nuclei. However, nuclei like. the suprachiasmatic nucleus and preoptic nucleus overlap both the zones Mowat-Wilson syndrome (MWS) is characterized by distinctive facial features (widely spaced eyes, broad eyebrows with a medial flare, low-hanging columella, prominent or pointed chin, open-mouth expression, and uplifted earlobes with a central depression), congenital heart defects with predilection for abnormalities of the pulmonary arteries and.

They have predominant connections to the limbic system, which is involved in alertness, awareness, learning, memory, and emotion. The anterior nuclear group is composed primarily of the anteromedial and. From lateral to medial, the four deep cerebellar nuclei are the dentate, emboliform, globose, and fastigial. An easy mnemonic device to remember these names and positions relative to their position from the midline is the phrase Don't Eat Greasy Food, where each letter indicates the lateral to medial location in the cerebellar white matter. The midbrain, or mesencephalon (plural: mesencephala or mesencephalons), is the most rostral part of the brainstem and sits above the pons and is adjoined rostrally to the thalamus.During development, the midbrain forms from the middle of three vesicles that arise from the neural tube.. When viewed in cross-section, the midbrain can be divided into three portions
