Foix-Chavany-Marie syndrome after unilateral anterior opercular contusion: a case report.

Abstract

Severe dysarthria and a bilateral central voluntary paresis of ower cranial nerves with preserved automatic, involuntary, emoional movements are rare after head injury. This symptom is ategorized as Foix–Chavany–Marie syndrome, which is generally onsidered to result from bilateral anterior opercular lesions. We resent an extremely rare case of Foix–Chavany–Marie syndrome ollowing contusion in the unilateral, right frontal operculum and remotor area.
