Info Here's the difference

In locked in syndrome you have paralysis of all four extremities so the patient is locked in by his immobility yet the patient is fully aware of the surrounding and is not unconscious.

Man In Barrel Syndrome (MIBS) refers to the clinical syndrome of bilateral upper extremity paresis with intact motor functioning of the lower extremities, giving the appearance of being confined within a barrel. The pathogenesis of MIBS is believed to be cerebral hypoperfusion leading to border zone infarctions between the territories of the anterior and middle cerebral arteries. This syndrome is very rare and is unlikely to be asked in USMLE.

If it is present in Kaplan Neuroanatomy then it's definitely high yield. These people do not mention anything unless they know it can be asked in USMLE.

it is the same thing. yes - associated with central pontine myelinolysis from overexuberant correction of hyponatremia - as well as basilar?? artery occlusion.

not a very high yield topic, so if your kaplan doesnt have it.. its probably a good thing.
