434 Possible Causes for Acute Respiratory Failure, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    failure.[] motor neuropathy.[] We describe a 60-year-old male patient with acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) who presented with initial abdominal pain and subsequent quadriplegia and respiratory failure[]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    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[] Acute intermittent porphyria as a cause of respiratory failure: case report. Am J Crit Care. 2009;18(2):180, 178-9. 8.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    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).[] Electromyography showed peripheral nerve injury (mainly in axon). The patient was diagnosed as having acute motor sensory axonal neuropathy (AMSAN).[]

  • 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.[] Without removal of the tick, finally the respiratory muscles will fail and the patient will die of respiratory failure.[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    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.[] CIDP is one of the few peripheral neuropathies amenable to treatment.[]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    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.[] respiratory failure due to respiratory muscle paralysis, and cardiac arrest.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Acute respiratory failure is sometimes the first manifestation of the disease, although onset can be more insidious.[] Macroglobulinemia with peripheral neuropathy simulating motor neuron disease. Ann Neurol 1981;11: 532-536. [ Links ] 17. Van Schaik IN, Bossuyt PM, Brand A, Vermeulen M.[] Dual pathologies: A cervical myelopathy and a co-existent peripheral neuropathy can present as a mixed upper-lower motor neurone picture.[]

  • Smoke Inhalation Injury

    The overall data suggests that there is no improvement in survival for burn patients suffering acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, with the use of ECMO.[] Other sequelae include motor dysfunction, peripheral neuropathies, impaired hearing and balance (because of vestibular damage), dementia, and psychoses.[] Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) who have had a smoke inhalation injury, and to compare with those without an inhalation injury.[]

  • Corynebacterium Diphtheriae

    The lymph nodes located in the neck results in nonspecific acute lymphadenitis, respiratory failure, severe adenitis, and edema in the common symptom of the “bull neck.”[]

  • Polymyositis

    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.[] Causes of death among the 27 patients who died during the follow-up period were cardiac in 22% (4 acute myocardial infarction and 2 congestive heart failure), respiratory[]
