    Once these clinical features were taken into account, neither aphasia, dysarthria, sensory loss, blood pressure values nor the duration of symptoms were found to improve explanation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The neurological examination showed tetraplegia and hypalgesia below the C2 level, but neither facial palsy nor aphasia was found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hanlon RE, Lux WE, Dromerick AW: Global aphasia without hemiparesis: language profiles and lesion distribution.
