Stroke of the brain stem, although it causes unclear symptoms, can progress quickly, seriously affecting health.

As with strokes in other regions of the brain, strokes in the brain stem can lead to many serious consequences, which should be diagnosed and detected in a timely manner.

Symptoms can worsen rapidly in a matter of hours that are life-threatening.

Patients should receive medical attention and monitoring to help recover and minimize the likelihood of post-stroke disability.

The brain stem is located at the base of the brain, connecting the brain with the spinal cord.
