432 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Muscle Weakness, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    But weakness that increases over several days is also common. Muscle weakness or loss of muscle function (paralysis) affects both sides of the body.[] CASE REPORT: An 82-year-old woman presented with acute ascending flaccid paralysis and acute respiratory failure.[] In this type, the covering around peripheral nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN).[]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    weakness.[] failure.[] motor neuropathy.[]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    weakness.[] We reported two patients with acute hepatic porphyria with acute respiratory failure.[] neuropathy (patchy numbness and paresthesias), Proximal motor weakness (usually starting in upper extremities which can progress to include respiratory impairment and death[]

  • Tick Paralysis

    We propose toxin-mediated direct skeletal muscle involvement as one of the reasons for muscle weakness in tick paralysis.[] It typically presents as an acute ascending paralysis occurring a few days after tick attachment and may result in respiratory failure and death.[] failure and death.[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    […] of the muscle weakness.[] We examined a 27-year-old woman who developed rapidly progressive quadriplegia and acute respiratory failure that required mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit[] About CIDP Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy is an immune-mediated neuropathy that affects the peripheral motor and sensory nerves.[]

  • Polymyositis

    Some cases of polymyositis have manifestations of muscle weakness in the orbital muscles. Rare cases also have weaknesses in facial and bulbar muscles.[] Acute respiratory failure due to diaphragmatic weakness revealing a polymyositis. Eur J Intern Med. 2002;13(3):203-205.[] Sensory motor axonal peripheral neuropathy, which is another rare association of inflammatory bowel disease, was also present.[]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    weakness.[] Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection in a malnourished 6-year-old boy was characterized by severe diarrhea, dehydration and marked hypokalemia, followed by acute respiratory[] ; peripheral nervous system pathology is visible by the lack of motor response to peripheral nerve stimulation.[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Proximal muscle weakness is more often seen than distal muscle weakness.[] respiratory failure after a 12-day hospitalization.[] It may be abnormal in motor neuron disease, polymyositis, peripheral neuropathy, Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS), and other neuromuscular disorders.[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Dyspnea secondary to diaphragm or respiratory muscle weakness may also be observed.[] Dingyu Tan, Jun Xu, Yi Yang, Ming Gu and Xuezhong Yu, Postoperative acute respiratory failure caused by adult‐onset Pompe disease, The Clinical Respiratory Journal, 12, 1,[] […] nervous system, 201, 202 and patients with successful HSCT have developed severe, peripheral neuropathy-related motor deficits several years after transplantation. 193 Future[]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    Results: in myasthenia gravis, initial weakness involved extraocular muscles in 59%, bulbar muscles in 29%, and limb muscles in 12% of the patients.[] The patient presented with acute respiratory failure, making identification and management of her illness challenging.[] These features may also be present in myasthenia gravis, the initial phase of lower motor neuron diseases, immunodeficiency syndromes, peripheric neuropathies and use of corticoids[]
