A syndrome characterized by dysarthria, dysphagia, dysphonia, impairment of voluntary movements of tongue and facial muscles, and emotional lability. This condition is caused by diseases that affect the motor fibers that travel from the cerebral cortex to the lower brain stem (i.e., corticobulbar tracts); including multiple sclerosis; motor neuron disease; and cerebrovascular disorders.
