    The main aim of this study is to test the reliability and validity of the UMAS Questionnaire to evaluate anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP) and anosognosia for hemianaesthesia (AHA). Anosognosia is the unawareness or underestimation of a specific deficit in sensory, perceptual, motor, affective or...

    We describe the clinical manifestations and the lesion patterns of five patients with somatoparaphrenia, the denial of ownership for a paralyzed limb, who showed the rare dissociation from anosognosia for hemiplegia. Similar cases have been only occasionally cited in the literature with scanty...

    Anosognosia for hemiplegia is a common and striking disorder following stroke. Because it is typically transient and variable, it remains poorly understood and has rarely been investigated at different times in a systematic manner. Our study evaluated a prospective cohort of 58 patients with...

    Although radiographic and clinical appearance may suggest the pathological diagnosis of a mass lesion located within vital areas of the brainstem, surgeons frequently have elected to treat patient without the benefit of a tissue diagnosis. Such an emperic approach often leads to inappropriate...

    Rectus muscle haematoma is a well documented clinical entity, but its diagnosis remains elusive. A haematoma within the rectus sheath produces a painful, tender swelling that can mimic an intraperitoneal mass with features of an acute abdomen. Two patients with rectus haematomas presenting after...

    THE TERM ANOSOGNOSIA WAS INTRODUCED BY BABINSKI TO Tdescribe unawareness of hemiplegia, a phenomenon that he thought was caused by sensory deafferentation. Anosognosia occurs in other conditions such as hemianopia, cortical blindness, hemineglect, prosopagnosia, amnesia, aphasia, and dementia....

    Objective: To review the frequency, clinical correlates, and mechanism of anosognosia after stroke. Methods: We searched the most recent relevant literature on anosognosia after stroke and carried out a critical analysis of the main findings. Results: Anosognosia is present in about 10% of acute...

    Blepharospasm in connection with chronic subdural haematoma is an uncommon pathology and usually subsides after treatment of the haematoma. Different mechanical and vascular factors may play a role by affecting domapinergic transmission in basal ganglia. A case of a 72-year-old patient is...

    The article provides information on the condition of the patient suffering with misoplegia. It has been stated that this is relatively common after unilateral lesions including anosognosia and anosodiaphoria. The cases mentioned and the new observations are summarized in the supplementary data...
