Millard-Gubler syndrome is a lesion of the pons.[1]

Contents

Presentation

It is a syndrome of unilateral softening of the brain tissue arising from obstruction of the blood vessels of the pons, involving the sixth and seventh cranial nerves and fibers of the corticospinal tract, and is associated with paralysis of the abducens (including diplopia, internal strabismus, and loss of power to rotate the affected eye outward) and facial nerves and contralateral hemiplegia of the extremities. It is also known as "crossed hemiplegia".

Diagnosis

This syndrome is easier to diagnose today thanks to the technical advances in brain imaging (CT, MRI).

Eponym

Millard-Gubler syndrome is named after two French physicians, Auguste Louis Jules Millard (1830-1915), who first identified the disorder in 1855, and Adolphe-Marie Gubler (1821-1879), who described the disease in a medical paper one year later.
