How does a Brown Séquard's legion present?
Ipsilateral weakness and loss of proprioception and vibration below the level of the lesion
Contralateral loss of pain and temperature sensation
How does Anterior Cord Syndrome present?
Loss of motor function, pain,and temperature with preservation of light touch and proprioception.
How does Central Cord Syndrome present?
