Abstract

Foix-Chavany-Marie Syndrome (FCMS) is characterized by anarthria and bilateral facio-pharyngo-glosso-masticatory paralysis with an automatic-voluntary dissociation, which usually develops in bilateral opercular lesions. We present a case of FCMS caused by unilateral subcortical lesion. A 54-year-old man was admitted due to acute right hemiparesis with anarthria. He had voluntary facial paresis but automatic-involuntary facial movements were preserved. MRI showed an acute left corona radiata infarction and PET revealed decreased glucose metabolism in left basal ganglia and fronto-parietal lobe.
