Abstract

We report the difference existing between two clinical syndromes: Spiller's syndrome is caused by a complete involvement of the medial hemimedulla, while Déjérine's syndrome is determined by lesions restricted to the anterior portion of the medial hemimedulla and is characterized by hypoglossal nerve palsy and contralateral hemiparesis.
