A focal neurologic deficit consists of a set of symptoms or signs in which causation can be localized to an anatomic site in the central nervous system. The sudden development of a focal neurologic deficit suggests a vascular ischemic event such as an infarction. Chronically worsening focal neurologic deficits may be caused by an expanding intracranial lesion such as a primary or metastatic neoplasm.
