What is Brown Séquard Syndrome?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
Brown-Séquard Syndrome is a rare form of incomplete spinal cord injury which results following damage to one side of the spinal cord only (hemisection), typically in the neck (cervical spinal cord), but may be anywhere along the length of the spinal cord. It is estimated that Brown-Séquard Syndrome accounts for up to 4% of all traumatic spinal cord injuries.
Brown-Séquard Syndrome is identified by a loss of the sense of vibration, deep touch or pressure, position sense (proprioception), and muscle strength below the level of the spinal cord injury on the same (ipsilateral) side of the body as the injury.
