Abstract:

The Cheiro-Oral-Pedal Syndrome (COPS) is a rare hemisensory syndrome characterized by unilateral sensory disturbances of the corner of the mouth, hand, and foot. It has been described in the setting of neurologic lesions of the brainstem and thalamus that are often vascular in nature. The close proximity of the sensory fibers and sensory nuclei of the mouth, hand, and foot in the medial lemniscus and thalamus explain this possible pattern of hemisensory loss. The possibility of these symptoms being perceived as mild and secondary to peripheral processes places patients at risk of delayed presentation and workup. We present a case of COPS to further raise awareness of a rare presentation of stroke.
