265 Possible Causes for Anarthria, EMG Shows Neurogenic Abnormalities, Facial Muscle Weakness and Progressive Atrophy

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    EMG change were at an earlier stage of evolution than those showing severe weakness and marked neurogenic EMG change.[doi.org] In cranial nerves, common symptoms are atrophy of facial muscles and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP).[flexikon.doccheck.com] AAC use is associated with improved quality of life and mood in people with severe dysarthria/anarthria ( Caligari, Godi, Guglielmetti, Franchignoni, & Nardone, 2013 ; Korner[doi.org]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Spinal muscular atrophy is characterised by slowly progressive muscle weakness and atrophy of the limb muscles associated with motor neurone loss in the spinal cord.[patient.info] Bulbar muscular atrophy affects the bulbar and facial muscles with motor neurone loss in the brainstem. [ 1 ] The spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are a spectrum of genetically[patient.info] They all result in progressive lower motor neurone weakness. The gene defect is on chromosome 5q and the implicated gene is called survival motor neurone gene 1 (SMN1).[patient.info]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence and describe the importance of alcohol screening for all patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and examine the relationship between gender, age, Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), emergent decompressive craniectomy, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) from[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    Spasticity is a common issue in chronic stroke. To date, no study has reported the long-term (up to 1 year) outcomes of Fu's subcutaneous needling in combination with constraint-induced movement therapy in chronic stroke. This report describes the successful addition of acupuncture on spasticity and arm function[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Locked-in Syndrome

    Locked-in syndrome is a state of preserved consciousness in the setting of quadriplegia, anarthria, and usually also includes lateral gaze palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Upper lid and vertical eye movements are usually preserved in patients with the "locked-in" syndrome, a condition manifested by anarthria, spastic quadriparesis, and intact[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] "Locked-in syndrome" is a clinical state characterized by quadriplegia and anarthria with preserved consciousness, most commonly caused by ischemia in the ventral part of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (involved with swallowing), weak jaw and facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[secure.ssa.gov] […] elderly women seem to be the predominant group of patients that suffer from progressive bulbar palsy and usually the first manifestation is progressive dysarthria (or even anarthria[symptoma.com] Symptoms include pharyngeal muscle weakness (muscles that are involved in swallowing), weak facial muscles, progressive loss of speech, and tongue muscle atrophy.[advancedpsy.com]
