Medical Definition of Brown-sequard syndrome

1. A syndrome due to damage of one half of the spinal cord, resulting in ipsilateral paralysis below the level of the lesion and loss of discriminatory and joint sensation, and contralateral loss of pain and temperature sensation. Brown-sequard was a french physiologist, 1817-1894. The syndrome is also called brown-sequard disease and brown-sequard paralysis but this latter should not be confused with a flaccid paralysis seen in disorders of the urinary tract called by the same name.
