alternate hemianesthesia
The loss of tactile sensibility on one side of the head as well as on the opposite side of the rest of the body. Also called crossed hemianesthesia.

alternating hemiplegia

Hemiplegia caused by a lesion on the opposite side of the brainstem, accompanied by an additional paralysis of a motor cranial nerve on the same side as the lesion. Also called crossed hemiplegia, stauroplegia.
