1,972 Possible Causes for Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Increased, Cerebrospinal Fluid Protein Increased, Progressive Polyneuropathy

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Progression may be delayed or halted by improved diabetes control, administration of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors), and aggressive blood pressure[emedicine.medscape.com] […] the risk of hypotensive symptoms, syncope and renal dysfunction ACE angiotensin-converting enzyme Table is adapted and reproduced with the permission of the Heart Foundation[web.archive.org] Having diabetic nephropathy also increases the risk of significant diabetic retinopathy.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Noticeably, usual treatments for cardiac failure (i.e. calcium inhibitors, β-blockers, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors) are inefficient or even dangerous in patients[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] […] to multiple myeloma The initial presentation occasionally is a polyneuropathy when it is part of a POEMS syndrome (mostly the sclerotic form).[radiopaedia.org] However, some patients may have cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) abnormalities; specifically, increased protein and decreased soluble β-amyloid or ApoE.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Amyloidosis

    Loop diuretics are the treatment of choice for this condition because angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers and beta-blockers are poorly[scielo.org.co] Tafamidis is a TTR stabilizer that is orally administered and, by interfering with amyloid fibril formation and deposition, is capable of slowing progression of TTR polyneuropathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Specifically, hereditary ATTR amyloidosis with polyneuropathy (hATTR-PN), also referred to as familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) is an inherited, progressive, life-threatening[web.archive.org]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    Hou X, Aguilar MI, Small DH (2007) Transthyretin and familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy. Recent progress in understanding the molecular mechanism of neurodegeneration.[doi.org] Patients usually present with familial amyloid polyneuropathy, with progressive peripheral and autonomic neuropathy; involvement of the heart or kidneys is variable.[doi.org] Progressive cardiac amyloidosis following liver transplantation for familial amyloid polyneuropathy: implications for amyloid fibrillogenesis.[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    Shortly after HSCT the patient developed progressive polyneuropathy of the lower legs and hypoesthesia. Five months later a severe dementia followed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although cerebrospinal fluid protein levels were often increased in both groups, the elevations were generally mild or moderate in misdiagnosed patients, at an average of[news-medical.net] We report a 58-year-old woman with DADS that progressed to a severe case of classic CIDP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Foix-Alajouanine Syndrome

    Serum and CSF angiotensin converting enzyme concentrations may be raised; the CSF may reveal increases in protein or cell count in 80% of cases.[jnnp.bmj.com] A lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was performed and showed increased protein (154 mg/dL), 144 red cells/mm 3, with normal white cells (2/mm 3 ) counting.[scielo.br] Our patient had a similar course in her disease progression.[kundoc.com]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Most types of polyneuropathy progress fairly slowly, over months or years, but rapidly progressive polyneuropathy also occurs.[en.wikipedia.org] The primary manifestations of polyneuropathy are slowly progressive numbness and paresthesias, with burning sensations in the feet usually in a symmetrical pattern.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] polyneuropathy. [13] Therefore, attention to the pattern of early symptoms is important.[en.wikipedia.org]
