  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis

    Unilateral or bilateral facial muscles, as well as the tongue and mastication muscles, may become paralyzed.[emedicine.medscape.com] Unilateral weakness is suggestive of peripheral nerve or nerve root involvement, including neuropathy, plexopathy, radiculopathy and facial palsy (Bell s palsy).[clinicaladvisor.com] External oculomotor weakness with pupil sparing may occur in rare cases.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pineal Gland Cyst

    Abstract Pineal cysts are usually asymptomatic; however, they may rarely cause symptoms such as chronic headache, paroxysmal headache with gaze paresis, postural syncope, loss of consciousness, and sudden death. A 30-year-old woman with no specific medical history except chronic headache was found collapsed in a[…][doi.org]

  • Bell's Palsy

    : eg, abrupt onset with complete, unilateral facial weakness at 24 to 72 hours, and, on the affected side, numbness or pain around the ear, a reduction in taste, and hypersensitivity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Its most alarming symptom is unilateral facial weakness, which can result in the inability to close the eyelids, smile, or whistle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Bell's palsy is a kind of peripheral neural disease that cause abrupt onset of unilateral facial weakness.[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]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this work was to evaluate the preprogressive phase in subjects with radiologically isolated syndrome (RIS) who evolve to primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). METHODS: A multicenter RIS cohort was previously established. Demographic, clinical, and radiological characteristics of subjects[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Reversible Ischemic Neurologic Deficit

    Abstract The benefit of carotid endarterectomy (CE) in preventing recurrent stroke and improving survival in the patient who has sustained a reversible ischemic neurologic deficit (RIND) or stroke is still controversial. To determine the long-term benefits and value of CE in these patients, a 10-year review of 253[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
