Eight-and-a-half syndrome: video evidence and updated literature review


The eight-and-a-half syndrome (EHS)—defined by the combination of a seventh cranial nerve palsy and an ipsilateral one-and-a-half syndrome—is a rare brainstem syndrome, which localises to the caudal tegmental region of the pons.
