What is bi-temporal hemianopsia?
Loss of temporal fields of vision
What is Homonymous hemianopsia?
Complete loss of field L or Right. So this means not the whole eye but visual field of one eye.

Polio, CMT, muscular atrophy (Peripheral or spinal level)
Parkinon's is where?
What characterisics would you see with a UMN?
- Lost of voluntary control

X-linked recessive: onset quicker, and severe
In CMT why the PF?
Peroneus Longus overpowers the Anterior Tib
Cause of CMT RF varus?
Tibialis posterior overpowers the Peroneus brevis
What is a high steppage gait called in CMT?
Progression atrophy of the distal UE?
What is Dejerine-Sottas Disease?
- Hypertrophic interstitial polyneuropathy
- Distal weakness and sensory loss of primarily LE
- Peripheral nerve enlarge: ONION BULBs
What is Freidrich's Ataxia?
- Recessive inheritance
- Degeneration of the posterior and lateral columns of spine
- Rapid disabling
- Weakness in LE and anterior lateral compartments
- Sensory loss also like others
- Cerebellar involvement, slurred speech and ataxia
What is Roussy Levy syndrome?
- AD and slow progression
- Resting tremor, clumsy gait, artophy of distal LE and UX absent DTRs
What is Refsum's disease?
- Heredopathia atactia polyneuritis formis
- Hypertrophic sensory-motor polyneuropathy
- Accumumlation of Phytanic Acid
- Ichthyosis, deaf, retinitis pigmentosa
What is spinal dysraphism?
- failure of mesoderm and neuroectoderm to fuse and form the neural tube
- Many spinal bifidas and meningo problems
- See leg weakness, equinovarus, diminished DTR, sensory loss,

protrusion of meninges
What is meningoradiculocele?
protrusion of meninges and nerve roots
What is Cerebral palsy?
- Static brain lesions acquired in utero or delivery or short after.
- Common to trauma
- Asphyxir or premature
- Spasitic diplegia- scissoring gait
- Spasitic quadriplegia- LE and UE
- Spactic hemiplegia- unilateral spastic hemiparesis less severe mental impairment
