A LOGICAL MODEL FOR ANATOMICAL LOCALISATION IN NEUROLOGICAL DIAGNOSIS

Dr. S. Balaji Pai, Dr. Asima Banu

Abstract :

Objectives: The authors postulate a logical model which will help in arriving at anatomical localisation of neurological lesion. Methods: This model was applied randomly to 30 neurological cases admitted in the Neurosurgery ward of the Bangalore Medical College and Research Institute. All the symptoms are first enumerated in a neurological patient. Under each symptom (as a heading) all the possible sites of lesion resulting in the particular symptom are listed out. The "common factor" in these lists will be the site of the lesion. Results: In all cases an accurate anatomical localization could be achieved. In two patients multiple (two) lesions could be diagnosed using this model. Conclusion: The above model is useful for residents and junior consultants of neurology and neurosurgery to arrive at an accurate anatomical localization of the neurological symptoms and even signs.
