Dejerine anterior bulbar syndrome - occlusion of anterior spinal arteries with involvement of cortical spinal tract, hypoglossal nerves, and medial lemnisci.
Dejerine cortical sensory syndrome - (1) radiculitis; - (2) bulbar syndrome caused by medullar lesion and resulting in cranial nerve paralysis in the area; - (3) polyneuropathy resulting in depression of deep sensation; tactile sensation remains normal.
