Ataxic-hemiparesis, localization and clinical features.
Five additional cases of ataxic-hemiparesis are reported. In 3 cases, computed tomography showed an area of decreased attenuation in the posterior limb of the internal capsule, and in 1 case, 2 areas of attenuation in the corona radiata. A review of previously reported cases suggest that brainstem ataxic-hemiparesis may be separated from supratentorial forms of ataxic-hemiparesis by the presence of nystagmus, dysarthria, cranial neuropathy, and the absence of sensory abnormality.
