Sample text

This type of disconjugate gaze abnormality is also termed internuclear ophthalmoplegia. The pathways for vertical eye movements are less well understood. Lower centers likely exist in the midbrain (pretectal and tectal) regions. If a patient cannot follow verbal commands, two useful tests are employed to determine brain stem integrity. They activate the PPRF and subsequent pathways, not by cortical stimulation but rather by vestibular alterations. An oculocephalic or cervico-ocular (or doll's eyes) reflex is performed by turning the patient's head rapidly in the horizontal or vertical planes and by noting the movements or position of the eyes relative to the orbits.

Importantly, however, most patients presenting in coma with pinpoint pupils are suffering from an opiate overdose and not specific pontine dysfunction. Naloxone quickly reverses opiate pupillary changes but has no effect on pontine lesions. Patients with pontine lesions that cause coma from involvement of midbrain reticular dysfunction may also have a flaccid hemiparesis or paraparesis, irregular respirations termed apneustic, and a variety of extraocular palsies. These problems may include conjugate deviation of the eyes toward the hemiparetic body if the PPRF has a lesion, unilateral or bilateral sixth nerve palsies or an internuclear ophthalmoplegia if the MLF has a lesion.

Hemiparesis indicates a lesion of the upper motor neuron paths and may suggest either a contralateral cortical or paramedian brain stem lesion. Quadriplegia suggests a midline brain stem lesion. Signs of cerebellar dysfunction are unusual in patients with cerebellar infarcts or hemorrhages, which alter consciousness by producing brain stem compression or obstructive hydrocephalus. , Wernicke's encephalopathy, vitamin B12 deficiency) or intoxications (see Chapters 39 , 40 , and 55 ).
