10 Possible Causes for Congenital Contralateral Hemiparesis

  • Herpes Zoster

    INTRODUCTION: Herpes zoster is an acute, cutaneous viral infection caused by the reactivation of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) that is the cause of varicella. It is an acute neurological disease which can often lead to serious postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). Different nerves can be included with the skin rash in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Stem Infarction

    Lateral mass plating is a safe fixating system for lower cervical fractures. Brain stem infarction after cervical lateral mass screw plating has not been reported in previous literature. We report a case of poor surgical technique leading to vertebral artery injury and brain stem infarction after cervical lateral[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    BACKGROUND: Congenital or early-onset brain structural lesions often cause contralateral hemiparesis, cognitive deficits, developmental delays, and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemiparesis

    Hemispherectomy often leads to a loss of contralateral hand function. In some children with congenital hemiparesis, however, paretic hand function remains unchanged.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Congenital or early-onset brain structural lesions often cause contralateral hemiparesis, cognitive deficits, developmental delays, and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and preserved contralateral corticospinal organisation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • TUBB2B-Related Polymicrogyria

    Polymicrogyria, a malformation of the cerebral cortex, frequently causes epilepsy. Diffuse bilateral polymicrogyria (DBP) is related to poor epilepsy prognosis, but most patients with DBP are not good candidates for resective epilepsy surgery and effectiveness of corpus callosotomy (CC), a palliative surgery, for[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sturge-Weber Syndrome

    Clinically, it usually presents with seizures and other neurological complications, including mental retardation, contralateral hemiparesis and glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is a congenital disorder of the vasculature of the meninges, brain, face and eyes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polymicrogyria

    In contrast, the interpretation of sensorimotor fMRI in patients with congenital hemiparesis is more difficult, as ipsilesional activation can occur as it was the case in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This activation might represent contralaterally preserved primary somatosensory (S1) and not primary motor (M1) representation and is apparently not necessary for the paretic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemimegalencephaly
