Disease Lateral Medullary Syndrome

Name Lateral Medullary Syndrome
Synonyms Dorsolateral Medullary Syndrome | Lateral Bulbar Syndrome | Lateral Medullary Syndromes | Medullary Syndrome, Dorsolateral | Posterior Inferior Cerebellar Artery Syndrome | Syndromes, Lateral Medullary | Syndrome, Vieseaux-Wallenberg | Syndrome, Wallenberg | Vieseaux Wallenberg Syndrome | Vieseaux-Wallenberg Syndrome | Wallenberg's Syndrome | Wallenbergs Syndrome | Wallenberg Syndrome
Definition INFARCTION of the dorsolateral aspect of MEDULLA OBLONGATA in the BRAIN STEM. It is caused by occlusion of the VERTEBRAL ARTERY and/or the posterior inferior cerebellar artery. Clinical manifestations vary with the size of infarction, but may include loss of pain and temperature sensation in the ipsilateral face and contralateral body below the chin; ipsilateral HORNER SYNDROME; ipsilateral ATAXIA; DYSARTHRIA; VERTIGO; nausea, hiccup; dysphagia; and VOCAL CORD PARALYSIS.
