Definitions for "Brown-Séquard syndrome"
A set of findings that may be produced by incomplete or complete hemisection (damage to one side) of the spinal cord: Ipsilateral upper motor neuron paralysis involving muscles innervated by segments below the lesion. Ipsilateral lower motor neuron paralysis involving muscles innervated by the damaged segments. Contralateral loss of pain and temperature sensation beginning several segments below the level of lesion Ipsilateral loss of two-point discrimination and joint position sense below the level of lesion. Anesthesia to all sensations in dermatomes supplied by the damaged segments.
An incomplete cord injury that is difficult to diagnose and is characterized by paralysis and lack of sensation below the spinal cord injury. The paralysis of the extremity, with loss of discriminatory and joint sensation, is on the side where the spinal cord has been injured. Loss of sensation of pain and temperature is on the opposite side.
a syndrome of spinal cord hemisection with an ipsilateral upper motorneuron lesion below the level of the spinal cord involvement in association with an ipsilateral loss of light touch, vibration perception and joint position sense and a contralateral loss of pain and temperature
