Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0043019

NCI Thesaurus Code: C84807  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

NCIt Definition: A syndrome caused by an infarct in the vertebral or posterior inferior cerebellar artery. It is characterized by sensory defects affecting the same side of the face as the infarct and the opposite side of the trunk as the infarct. Patients experience difficulty swallowing and/or speaking.

GARD Definition: Wallenberg syndrome is a condition that affects the nervous system. Signs and symptoms may include swallowing difficulty; hoarseness; dizziness; nausea; vomiting; quick involuntary eye movements (nystagmus); balance and coordination problems; and Horner syndrome. It is often caused by a brain stem stroke. Treatment generally focuses on the specific signs and symptoms present and may include use of a feeding tube for swallowing difficulty, speech and/or swallowing therapy, and medication for pain. - this information is from GARD/ORDR/NCATS.

MSH Definition: INFARCTION of the dorsolateral aspect of MEDULLA OBLONGATA in the BRAIN STEM. It is caused by occlusion of the VERTEBRAL ARTERY and/or the posterior inferior cerebellar artery. Clinical manifestations vary with the size of infarction, but may include loss of pain and temperature sensation in the ipsilateral face and contralateral body below the chin; ipsilateral HORNER SYNDROME; ipsilateral ATAXIA; DYSARTHRIA; VERTIGO; nausea, hiccup; dysphagia; and VOCAL CORD PARALYSIS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p801)
