Hi,

This is due to a thalamic stroke probably the sensory nucleus of the thalamus on the side opposite the symptoms. This happens due to hypertensive lipohyalinotic cerebral angiopathy which may have bled.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shakeel Ansari, Neurologist
