52 Possible Causes for Anthrax, Cranial Nerve Involvement, Orthostatic Hypotension

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    She subsequently developed pandysautonomia that manifested as a tonically dilated pupil, gastrointestinal dysmotility, urinary retention, and profound orthostatic hypotension[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Young sailor develops Guillain-Barre Syndrome after Anthrax vaccination.[whale.to] Clinical dysphagia was observed in seven patients and six of these cases involved a lower cranial nerve while five patients without cranial nerve involvement had silent dysphagia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Botulism

    Prominent features of cardiovascular failure were high resting heart rate, supine hypertension, orthostatic hypotension, and impaired baroreflex function.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ," 24 Dec. 2018 The group hoarded automatic weapons and recruited scientists as members to help develop chemical and biological weapons including sarin, VX, botulism and anthrax[merriam-webster.com] The PNS can also be affected leading to cranial nerve involvement, focal or multifocal neuropathies, and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Infantile Botulism

    However, some infections, such as anthrax, can result from smoking contaminated heroin.[gov.uk] Signs of weakness in the infant with botulism begin with cranial nerve involvement and loss of head control.[aafp.org] Autonomic dysfunction may also be present, characterized by orthostatic hypotension, dilated and fixed pupils, xerostomia, intestinal ileus and urinary retention ( Dembek[cochranelibrary.com]

Cranial nerves III-VII and IX-XII may be affected.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Neuropathy

    For some serious bacterial infections, including anthrax, plague and bacterial pneumonia among others, the benefits of fluoroquinolones outweigh the risks and it is appropriate[fda.gov] Asymmetric Bulbar Cranial Nerve Involvement Proximal Motor Sensory Upper Extremity Many polyneuropathies are: Symmetric Most prominent Distally & in Legs.[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] hypotension), which can make you feel faint or dizzy when standing up rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) excessive sweating or a lack of sweating problems with sexual function[nhs.uk]

  • Autosomal Dominant Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy

    In the cardiovascular system, postural hypotension, orthostatic hypotension and syncopal episodes are common.[ijaweb.org] A HSV/varicella zoster virus direct fluorescent antibody test was performed on the thumb and tongue lesions were both negative, as were wound cultures and anthrax PCR tests[avensonline.org] Cranial nerves (facial, bulbar) and the diaphragm are frequently involved. CMT4C.[tankonyvtar.hu]

  • Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy

    With autonomic involvement there may be orthostatic hypotension, nocturnal diarrhea, retention of urine, impotence, and small diameter of the pupils with sluggish reaction[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] A HSV/varicella zoster virus direct fluorescent antibody test was performed on the thumb and tongue lesions were both negative, as were wound cultures and anthrax PCR tests[avensonline.org] It rarely involves the more proximal musculature and rarely involves the cranial nerves. Sensory changes are present but usually to a lesser degree 5 .[radiopaedia.org]
