NEUROLOGICAL:  Cranial nerves III through XII are grossly intact, except for cranial nerve XI.  Right shoulder shrug is impaired.  Cranial nerve XII, tongue deviates to right.  There is also a right facial droop.  Strength:  Left upper and lower extremity 5/5.  Right upper extremity:  Elbow flexion 2-/5 with no other voluntary movement in the upper extremity.  Hand is flaccid.  Right lower extremity:  Hip flexion 3-/5 and knee extension 3+/5.  Right ankle dorsiflexion 1/5.  Sensation intact to light touch and to 10 g monofilament bilaterally.  Stereognosis intact on the left, unable to test on the right secondary to flaccidity.  Graphesthesia intact on the left and mildly impaired on the right.  It took the patient several repetitions in order to name the appropriate number drawn in the palm of his hand.  Cerebellar finger-to-nose-to-finger is intact on the left.  Rapid alternating movements with index finger tapping to thumb were intact on the left.  No ataxia.  The patient was unable to perform with the right upper extremity.  Mental status:  The patient had difficulty counting coins in the hand when a quarter, dime, and penny were placed in view.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION:  The patient was seen sitting up in a chair with both wrists restrained on the wheelchair, well-healed craniotomy scar with tracheostomy in place, with significant secretions with moist air mask over the tracheostomy.  The patient uttered unintelligible words.  With his tracheostomy plugged, he still was unintelligible.  He was intermittently fluent but really no language examination could be done because of his significant confusion.  His mental status examination was severe confusion with lethargy, alternating with some short-lived motor restlessness in which he picked the tubes or would pull and hold on to his tracheostomy mask line.  He never really pulled his tracheostomy tube or any of his IVs.  He has not pulled his PEG or his Foley catheter.  His cranial nerve examination is remarkable for poorly visualized fundi.  The patient was moving and restless, and at other times, too lethargic to cooperate.  Blinks to threat, both eyes.  Pupils are equal and reactive.  I did not see any evidence of third nerve palsy, and the patient has no asymmetry of his face that I could judge.  He was uncooperative with oral evaluation of the pharynx.  Tongue appeared midline in the mouth.  No carotid bruits but auscultation obscured by tracheostomy sounds, tracheostomy in place.  Motor examination shows the patient to be equally resistant to any sort of passive movement in both arms, in a gegenhalten or paratonic rigidity style.  There was some decreased withdrawal to pain on the right side suggestive of a mild underlying right hemiparesis.  Reflexes were absent in the ankles, 1 at the knees, 1 in the arms, and he has a positive palmomental.  Toes are nonreactive.  Limb ataxia could not be judged and gait was not attempted.
