Abstract

Pure motor hemiplegia is the most commonly encountered lacunar syndrome and is classically associated with small infarctions in the contralateral internal capsule or basis pontis. Pure motor hemiplegia has also been observed secondary to a wide variety of other vascular and nonvascular focal central nervous system processes. We describe a patient with pure motor hemiplegia associated with a saccular basilar artery aneurysm causing a lacunar infarction of the cerebral peduncle.
