Abstract

We present a report on a patient who developed unilateral motor neglect of the right hemibody after a left thalamic hemorrhage. He presented with pure motor neglect without aphasia, ideomotor apraxia, or unilateral spatial neglect due to a lesion in the centromedian parafascicular (CMPF) and ventrolateral (VL) nuclei of the left thalamus. Although unilateral motor neglect is usually associated with right hemispheric lesions, a left thalamic lesion may also result in isolated motor neglect. Copyright (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
