Diagnostic Neuroradiology


We present magnetic resonance imaging findings in Millard–Gubler syndrome. In our case, Millard–Gubler syndrome was described first by magnetic resonance angiography findings. MR imaging revealed an infarct in the left side of the ventral pons. Clinical examination and MR imaging revealed Millard–Gubler syndrome.
