76% had headaches associated with focal neurological signs like hemiparesis, hemisensory impairment, ataxia, cranial nerve palsies, memory impairment, behaviour and personality change, etc.
Clinical features of ischemic stroke depends on the location of brain injury: headache, vomiting, dizziness, hemiparesis, hemiplegia, hemisensory deficits, coma, neuropsychological abnormalities, etc.
We propose the following diagnostic criteria for SMART: (1) Remote history of therapeutic external beam cranial irradiation for malignancy; (2) prolonged, reversible clinical manifestations mostly years after irradiation, which may include migraine, seizures, hemiparesis, hemisensory deficits, visuospatial defect, aphasia, confusion and so on; (3) reversible, transient, unilateral cortical gadolinium enhancement correlative abnormal T2 and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery signal of the affected cerebral region; (4) eventual complete or partial recovery, the length of duration of recovery ranging from hours to days to weeks; (5) no evidence of residual or recurrent tumor; (6) not attributable to another disease.
Figure 6, a and b, illustrates preoperative neuroimaging from a 15-year-old girl who presented with the acute onset of left hemiparesis and hemisensory symptoms as well as right cranial nerve III palsy.
5] It is characterised by a prodromal febrile illness followed within 4-10 days by the abrupt onset of cranial nerve deficits associated with encephalopathy, hemiparesis, hemisensory loss and/ or cerebellar signs.
Exclusion criteria included (1) fixed or painful contractures at the paretic ankle that could impede participation; (2) marked increase in muscle tone (Modified Ashworth Scale [MAS] >2 at paretic ankle); (3) cerebellar ataxia; (4) sensory deficits defined by loss of proprioception at the great toe ([greater than or equal to] 4 mm at distal interphalangeal joint by manual test) and/or hemisensory neglect upon neurological examination; or (5) neurological history of dementia (Mini-Mental Status Examination [less than or equal to] 23 for >9th grade education), receptive or global aphasia with inability to follow two-step commands, nonstroke neurological disorder that could alter ankle motor control, or untreated major depression.

Visual neglect, also known as hemispatial neglect, hemi-inattention, hemisensory neglect, and hemineglect, is the best known of the deficiencies in attention (Kerkhoff, 2001).

Evaluating sensory response can assess for hemisensory loss; a stuporous or aphasic patient will grimace or pull away from the stimulus.
Gil-Gouveia et al in 2004 reported a patient with a history of sporadic hemiplegic migraine following oesophagogastroscopy under sedation with midazolam and fentanyl who developed prolonged hemiparesis and hemisensory loss with horizontal nystagmus and reduced swallowing, whose motor function recovered after 43 days and headache resolved after 49 days (4).
