Medial Inferior Pontine Syndrome Video Tutorial

Medial Inferior Pontine Syndrome:

Medial inferior pontine syndrome is a condition associated with a contralateral hemiplegia. Medial inferior pontine syndrome has been described as equivalent to Foville’s syndrome. Although medial pontine syndrome has many similarities to medial medullary syndrome, because it is located higher up the brainstem in the pons, it affects a different set of cranial nuclei.

Structure affected are:

  • Corticospinal Tract (leads to contralateral spastic hemiparesis)
  • Medial Lemniscus (leads toleads to contralateral loss of proprioception and vibration)
  • Abducens nerve (leads to strabismus “ipsilateral lateral rectus muscle paralysis – the affected eye looks down and towards the nose”. Abducens never lesion localizes the lesion to inferior pons.)
  • Corticobulbar tract (leads to contralateral weakness of the lower half of the face)
  • Middle cerebellar peduncle (leads to ipsilateral ataxia)
