Body Lateropulsion and Cerebellar Tremor in a Patient with Pontine Infarction.
 

Author(s): Ai Hosaka, Ryoya Tsunoda, Tetsuto Yamaguchi, Yasuro Shibagaki

Journal: Intern. Med.. 2017 ;56(5):563-565.

 

Body lateropulsion is known to be caused commonly by lateral medullary lesions but rarely by pontine lesions. It is also known to be associated with lesions of the dorsal spinothalamic tract or ascending graviceptive pathways. We herein report the case of a 75-year-old woman presenting ...
