DE BETOLAZA, Sofía; NUNEZ, Martín; ROCA, Fernando  and  PERENDONES, Mercedes. Thalamic lesions. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2016, vol.1, n.1, pp.12-19. ISSN 2393-6797.

ABSTRACT: The thalamus is a basal grey nuclei which serves as a cross-linking point for multiple neural networks. Clinical manifestations of thalamic lesions are varied, non-systematized and relatively not familiar to physicians. Moreover, these lesions are associated with numerous disorders, among which vascular lesions are by far the more frequent. Two cases of thalamic lesions that differ in their presentation and nature are described in this article: the first one showed varied neurologic symptoms and was caused by a vascular disease, while the second one presented itself as the classic Déjerine-Roussy sensitive syndrome and was caused by an infectious disease

Keywords : Thalamus; Thalamic Diseases; Stroke.
