462 Possible Causes for Aphagia, Limbic Encephalitis

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Abstract Our objective was to study the clinical course of patients diagnosed with progressive bulbar palsy (PBP). We reviewed all 392 medical records of ALS patients seen between 1 January 2000 and 31 July 2007. Patients with isolated PBP at presentation were selected and classified into those with normal EMG of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lower Esophageal Ring

    Between 1970 and 1978, we saw 24 patients with lower esophageal rings and complaints of episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Episodic aphagia results from impaction of food at the site of the ring. Since 1970, 88 patients have been seen with either dysphagia or episodic aphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms may be either episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia, and the severity of symptoms is related to the diameter of the ring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Esophageal Obstruction

    86-year-old man in a very poor general condition with a 10-year history of a Zenker's diverticulum as a cause of a complete obstruction of the esophagus with subsequent aphagia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In our case, we illustrate a giant right-sided Zenker's diverticulum responsible for complete aphagia in a 78-year-old male patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Total aphagia from complete esophageal obstruction (CEO) can be seen in patients with head-neck or thoracic malignancies undergoing chemoradiation or[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    A 67-year-old female presenting with a history of weight loss and abdominal distension was noted on examination to have ascites.

  • Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

    INTRODUCTION: Bevacizumab when combined with carboplatin and paclitaxel improves response rates (RRs) and overall survival in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Paclitaxel has single-agent activity in relapsed small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Angiogenesis seems to play an important role in the pathogenesis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    OBJECTIVE: To compare the features of paraneoplastic syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone with those of limbic encephalitis. DESIGN: Case study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Investigation of LGI1 as the antigen in limbic encephalitis previously attributed to potassium channels: A case series.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract A 48-year-old man with autoimmune Addison disease developed the following paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes (PNNS): limbic encephalitis, opsoclonus/myoclonus, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudobulbar Palsy

    ABSTRACT Two patients sought treatment for symptoms of bulbar motor dysfunction and the marked emotional lability that characterizes pseudobulbar palsy (PBP). Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed large petroclival masses with severe compression and displacement of the brainstem. A suboccipital craniectomy with[…][doi.org]

  • Foreign Body in the Esophagus

    Foreign bodies in the esophagus can result in serious complications depending on the size and shape of the ingested body. This report presents an unusual esophageal foreign body (endotracheal tube) caused by a physician who was inexperienced in endotracheal intubation during the treatment of generalized[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phlegmonous Esophagitis

    We report a woman presenting with unrelenting odynophagia and chest pain. Computed tomography identified a deep neck infection with acute phlegmonous esophagitis. However, esophageal intramural dissection with mucosal rupture occurred after routine nasogastric-tube insertion, and pus was vomited thereafter. The[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
