Hemimedullary syndrome, also known as Babinski-Nageotte syndrome, occurs as a result of the occlusion of the ipsilateral vertebral artery proximal to the posterior inferior cerebellar artery and its anterior spinal artery branches. This situation causes lateral medullary infarct and medial medullary infarct simultaneously.
