  • Meningitis

    The term hemiparesis (see PARESIS) refers to mild to moderate weakness involving one side of the body.[bioportfolio.com] A 55-year-old woman was brought by ambulance to our hospital with complaints of sudden-onset dysarthria and left arm numbness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ,et al, 2018 Recurrent Dysarthria and Ataxia in a Young Girl JAMA Neurol 75:125-126, Romba, M.[neudle.com]

  • Stroke

    SSEH presenting as a hemiparesis is less common and in such situations, it can be mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A nine-week pregnant 33-year-old female presented with sudden-onset right-sided hemiparesis, hemisensory loss, dysarthria and homonymous hemianopia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the Wind chapter of Donguibogam, left hemiparesis due to stroke is called Tan, a sort of Hyeol-Byeong, and right hemiparesis due to stroke is called Tan, a sort of Gi-Byeong[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lacunar Infarction

    Thalamic lesion is a relatively rare cause of ataxic hemiparesis; most of the reported cases of ataxic hemiparesis caused by thalamic lesion were accompanied by sensory disturbances[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with dysarthria-clumsy hand/ataxic hemiparesis accounted for the best scores in some tests of visuoconstructive function and visual memory.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] lacunar syndromes included pure motor stroke in 63 patients, sensorimotor stroke in 51, pure sensory stroke in 14, atypical lacunar syndrome in 9, ataxic hemiparesis in 5 and dysarthria-clumsy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    A 32-year-old man presented with slight left hemiparesis. He was slightly confused, and his blood pressure was extremely high.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 47-year-old man with poorly controlled hypertension presented with headaches, right-sided weakness and dysarthria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patient 2, a 46-year-old man with an untreated hypertension, presented with extremely high blood pressure and general fatigue, vertigo, and mild dysarthria as the initial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    After 7 to 19 days, patients suddenly deteriorated, developing headache, fever, a decreased level of consciousness, brainstem signs, or hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This mutism changed into dysarthria and finally into normal speech. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed lesions in both cerebellar hemispheres, suggesting cerebellitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No significant differences were identified for hospital course or outcome, with the exception that a greater proportion of patients had subdural empyema and hemiparesis in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    During the course of illness, the patient had an acute cerebral hemorrhage, which manifested with hemiparesis, dysarthria, and pathologic crying.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Two days after the surgery, he developed left hemiparesis. CT scans showed a large cerebral hemorrhage on the right temporal lobe with midline shift by brain metastases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had fluent speech with a mild dysarthria and left facial droop. His sensation was intact and motor strength were intact except for persistent right sided weakness.[thoracic.org]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    Spastic Hemiplegia/Hemiparesis: This type affects only one side of body and is more prevalent in the arms than the legs.[pediatricbrainfoundation.org] This study describes the use of a neuroplasticity-principled speech treatment approach (LSVT( )LOUD) with children who have dysarthria secondary to cerebral palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] neonatal brain against hypoxic-ischemic injury Brain reorganisation in cerebral palsy : a high-field functional MRI study. 1 subject, 15 years old, with perinatal left-sided hemiparesis[chasa.org]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    A 73-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital for sudden headache and subsequent left hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case Description: A 53-year-old male patient suddenly developed severe headache associated with dysarthria and an altered state of consciousness.[surgicalneurologyint.com] […] often called a “thunderclap headache”), nausea, confusion, altered consciousness, seizure, visual disturbances, cardiac arrhythmias, and focal neurological deficits such as hemiparesis[link.springer.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    ., hemiparesis or paraparesis). Brainstem involvement may present as diplopia, altered sensation or weakness of the face, or ataxia.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Articulation abilities were evaluated using the articulation subtest from the Fussi assessment (dysarthria scores).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An 80-year-old man developed dysarthria, quadriplegia, sensory disturbance and ataxia in all limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebellar Ataxia

    The clinical picture is that of cognitive decline, visual disturbance and hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patient 2 initially presented with an increased startle response and myoclonic jerks, and subsequently developed severe limb and gait ataxia, dysarthria, oculomotor disturbances[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebellar ataxia associated with glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies (GAD-ab) is a rare and usually slow progressive disease with moderate to severe gait and limb ataxia, dysarthria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
