  • Urinary Tract Infection

    The patient recovered with mild subjective weakness following treatment of intravenous immunoglobulin with ceftriaxone.[] The lead compound, 29β-NAc, is a biphenyl N-acetyl-β-galactosaminoside with a Ki of 90 nM, representing a major advancement in potency relative to the characteristically weak[] […] new signs of infection (for example, fever and persistent sore throat ), eye pain, vision changes, mood changes, easy bruising/bleeding, and pain/numbness/burning/tingling/weakness[]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    […] bulbar weakness, and 95% presented with limb weakness.[] We report a 73 year-old lady who presented 10 years previously with stiffness of both calves, dry mouth, fatigue, proximal weakness and areflexia in lower limbs.[] Patients present with proximal muscle weakness and fatigability, often combined with areflexia. Only 5% of reported cases are children.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    After treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin, the peripheral weakness improved.[] Guillain-Barré syndrome is a life-threatening neurological disorder that presents with rapid ascending paralysis and areflexia.[] Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an immune-mediated disease characterised by evolving ascending limb weakness, sensory loss and areflexia.[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    She had distal numbness and paresthesias, minimal distal weakness and impaired vibratory sensation.[] An 11-year-old boy presented with progressive proximal muscle weakness and areflexia. He also had scoliosis with right convexity in the thoracic spine.[] On admission, the patient exhibited bifacial, extremity weakness, ataxia, impaired sensation, and areflexia. Electrophysiology and nerve biopsy suggested demyelination.[]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    A patient with uvular cancer presented with lower limb weakness and paresthesiae, headache, neck stiffness and multiple cranial palsies.[] This produces a lower motor neuron pattern characterized by hypotonia, areflexia, muscle atrophy and fasciculations.[] After approximately 36 months, he presented with gradually progressive weakness of the left lower limb since 6 months, followed by weakness of the right lower limb along with[]

  • Castleman Disease

    Symptoms and signs of MCD include fever, night sweats, loss of appetite, nausea/vomiting, weight loss, cough, shortness of breath, weakness or fatigue from anemia, enlarged[] […] with a paresis of the upper extremities in association with a total ophtalmoplegia and a dysphagia, consistent with the Miller-Fisher syndrome (ophtalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia[] […] common in multicentric CD, and can lead to problems with weakness and shortness of breath. 12.[]

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    She presented with recurrent seizure attacks with muscle weakness, psychosis, dyskinesia, autonomic failure and insomnia.[] Neurological examination showed mild consciousness disturbance and bilateral ophthalmoplegia on admission, flaccid paraplegia with leg areflexia on Day 4.[]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    We identified 3 patients with hand weakness and 1 patient with asymmetric weakness of the upper extremity. Conduction blocks (CBs) were identified in 1 patient.[] We report four patients who presented acutely areflexia, pure motor deficits without sensory disturbances, multifocal CBs persisting at the same motor nerves on serial electrophysiological[] An acute tetraparesis with diffuse areflexia but little or no sensory disturbance was the clinical picture.[]

  • Periodic Paralysis

    He rapidly recovered from weakness after acetazolamide treatment.[] In both cases, the physical examination revealed an enlarged thyroid gland and symmetrical flaccid paralysis with areflexia of lower extremities.[] Variants • MFS: most common variant, ophthalmoplegia, areflexia, and ataxia usually in adults, also common in children.[]
