Cortical stroke produces unusual clinical findings. Cortical sensory representation is believed to be unilateral and contralateral. Here we report a patient with graded sensory loss due to cortical stroke. Stimulation studies reveal sensory facial representation of upper face to be bilateral, while that of lower face is unilateral and contralateral. The corollary of these studies explain our findings, the upper part of the face due to its bilateral representation is least effected, while the lower face due to its unilateral and contralateral representation is most severely involved in cortical stroke.
