ABSTRACT

Study Design: Case report Objectives: To report a case of Brown-Séquard syndrome after blunt cervical trauma. Summary of Literature Review: Brown-Séquard syndrome is a rare disease characterized by hemisection of the spinal cord, and it shows the best prognosis of the various types of incomplete spinal cord injuries. Materials and Methods: A patient with Brown-Séquard syndrome that occurred after a traffic accident was followed up for 2 years and 6 months. Results: We observed normal recovery of motor strength, but sensory impairment and deep tendon hyperreflexia remained. Conclusions: Brown-Séquard syndrome is known to have a good prognosis, but in this case, the neurological abnormality did not fully recover; therefore, we report this rare case and present a review of the literature.
