Clinicoradiological correlations observed in patients with small cortical infarctions have supported somatotopic representation of different parts of body areas in primary motor cortex. However, isolated shoulder weakness because of infarction in precentral gyrus has rarely been described. We report an 80-year-old woman with isolated shoulder palsy because of cortical ischemic infarction in the base of the left precentral gyrus as confirmed by brain magnetic resonance imaging. In our patient… CONTINUE READING
