It is a clearly defined term that relates to disease in specific parts of the brain which causes difficulty with speech, swallowing and tongue movements (lower motor neurone of the 9th 10th and 12th Cranial nerves) These days, it classically results from Motor neurone disease. In the past, poliomyelitis was the usual cause. It also occurs in Guillain-Barré syndrome (very rare) These conditions would (if identified) probably be mentioned on a death certificate. There is also a related condition called Pseudobulbar Palsy, which is commoner, although still rare. It can result from strokes or less commonly multiple sclerosis. The result is again difficulty with speech, swallowing and tongue movements (upper motor neurone of the 9th 10th and 12th Cranial nerves). In both problems death usually results from swallowed food or drink getting to the lungs and causing pneumonia (aspiration pneumonia). A skilled physician can distinguish these problems by careful examination, but this may not have happened in the past when any difficulty with swallowing was often called bulbar paralysis ) as cert by Hugh Stewart MD; C B Currie son present.
