    A hemimedullary infarction, in which medial and lateral medullary lesions occur simultaneously, is a rare cerebrovascular disease. It has been suggested that the Babinski-Nageotte’s syndrome is the classical brainstem syndrome that corresponds to hemimedullary lesion. In this study we...

    In comparison with the lateral (Wallenberg), medial (Dejerine) and hemimedullary (Reinhold) medulla oblongata syndromes, the Babinski-Nageotte and Cestan-Chenais syndromes are much less familiar cerebrovascular disorders. While the Babinski-Nageotte syndrome is usually confused with the...

    Here, we present a rare case of a lateral medullary infarction with ipsilateral hemiparesis, lemniscal sensation loss and hypoglossal nerve palsy. In this case, we proved Opalski's hypothesis by diffusion tensor tractography that ipsilateral hemiparesis in a medullary infarction is due to the...

    The article presents a case study of a 52-year-old man with Wallenberg's syndrome which has a medullary infarction that is visualized by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It notes that the involvement of vessels supplying lateral medulla is the basis for the partiality of a medullary syndrome....

    Background: Hiccups are an infrequent result of lateral medullary infarction. Their importance may be underestimated and they can cause distress, exhaustion, and aspiration. Hiccups in lateral medullary infarction remain poorly understood Objective: To evaluate the relation between the lesional...

    With the advent of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology, it is now possible to identify and determine the precise location of medullary infarcts. The lateral part of the medulla is most commonly affected by infarction. Classifications of lateral medullary infarcts are usually based on...
