Millard Guber Syndrome results from occlusion of the penetrating branches of the basilar artery in the pons. It is characterised by:
- lateral rectus palsy - cranial VI
- ipsilateral facial paralysis - cranial VII
- contralateral hemiplegia
The syndrome is often accompanied by contralateral sensory loss - light touch and proprioception - due to medial leminiscal damage. However, this is not part of the defined syndrome.
