Lateral Medullary syndrome is not a very common disorder and remains undiagnosed at times. It iscommonly caused by occlusion of the cranial segment of the vertebral artery or the posterior inferiorcerebellar artery. The usual symptoms of this syndrome include vertigo, dizziness, nystagmus, ataxia,nausea and vomiting, dysphagia, hoarseness, hiccups, impaired sensation over half the face, impairment ofpain and thermal sensation over the contralateral hemibody and limbs and the ipsilateral face, andHorner's syndrome. Four cases of lateral medullary syndrome are reported who were diagnosed on clinicalbasis and later on confirmed by MRI. Our objective is to correlate clinical and radiologic findings inpatients with lateral medullary syndrome.
