Talking about a boy who lost voluntary movement in his extremities. Thus, his corticospinal tract is injured. It decussates in the medulla, so contralateral limbs are affected. Cross out anything on the left side.
The FA picture is really good with this. Just gotta know E (and F) are the lateral corticospinal tracts.
I understand that damage to the area labeled E would cause issues with the corticospinal tract. However, wouldnt this damage cause UMN findings as it is before the transition to LMN in the anterior horn? In the stem we read that the pnt has LMN finding of "unable to move" So why are we seeing LMN and not UMN findings? thanks in advance
