Lesions in the medulla affect the tongue and sometimes the pharynx and larynx on one side and the arm and leg on the other. These “crossed paralyses,” so characteristic of brainstem lesions, are described further in Chap.

This group comprises myasthenia gravis; myotonia congenita (Thomsen disease); familial periodic paralysis; disorders of potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium metabolism; tetany; tetanus; poisoning by Clostridium botulinum; black widow spider bite; and the thyroid and other endocrine myopathies.
