Somatotopic distribution of motor cortex and sensory fibers is theoretically fully understood. We present a case of stroke, mimicking peripheral palsy, with finger paralysis attributed to cortical lesion. The patient's brain MRI may be useful to further understand the somatotopic representation of fingers in precentral and postcentral gyrus.
