Abstract

Uncal herniation is accompanied by a decreased level of consciousness. We describe a patient who remained fully alert despite the uncal herniation. The computed tomography (CT) scans allowed us to visualize the uncus and its spatial relation to the cerebral peduncle. We describe the sliding uncus syndrome.
