Answer

False localizing signs: False localization may be associated with CN III palsy and hemiparesis in uncal herniation, CN VI palsy with elevated intracranial pressure, homonymous hemianopsia due to posterior cerebral artery compression along the tentorial edge, brainstem dysfunction associated with tonsillar herniation, and vasospasm in remote vessels.
