Abstract

There are many named brainstem syndromic variants of medullary infarcts among which “eight-and-a-half” syndrome is a rare condition that involves ipsilateral abducens nucleus or paramedian pontine reticular formation, ipsilateral medial longitudinal fasciculus, and adjacent facial colliculus/facial nerve. Here, we describe a new variant of brainstem syndrome, which includes the clinical features of “eight-and-a-half syndrome” with associated hemiparesis. This patient is a known case of HIV illness since 6 years on antiretroviral therapy, presented with features of “Nine” syndrome.
