List of terms related to Diplegia


Diplegia, when used singularly, refers to paralysis affecting one part of the body and the corresponding part on the other side of the body — usually both legs. It should not be confused with paraplegia, which is a form of paralysis affecting the entire body.

Spastic diplegia is a condition of neuromuscular hypertonia primarily in the muscles of the legs, hips, and pelvis, and is a form of cerebral palsy. Correspondingly, spastic paraplegia refers to hypertonia affecting the entire body.

For example, facial diplegia occurs in 50% of patients with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
