Thermography of Face and Neck of Patients after Cerebral Apoplexy

  • K. Yanagi


It is reported that the patients after cerebral apoplexy have generally lower skin temperatures on the affected side than on the non-affected side.1,2 We have found that the limbs of patients are colder on the affected side. However, reports demonstrating such a phenomenon on the face and neck are still lacking.3
