  • Hemiplegia

    Episodes occur with variable frequency and may last a few minutes to several days. Isolated or associated episodes of bilateral hemiplegia may also be observed.[orpha.net] These attacks can occur during or separately from episodes of hemiplegia.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Alternating hemiplegia is a rare condition where a child has episodes of weakness affecting one side of the body.[gosh.nhs.uk]
