16 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Myalgia

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Thromboembolism, pneumonia, skin breakdown. Cardiac arrhythmia. Ileus. Aspiration pneumonia. Urinary retention. Psychiatric problems - eg, depression, anxiety.[patient.info] muscle action potentials reduced amplitude with relatively preserved conduction velocity implicates axonal neuropathy delayed/absent F waves implicates nerve root involvement[step2.medbullets.com] Suspected Zika virus disease was defined as a history of rash and 2 other Zika-related symptoms (fever, arthralgia, myalgia, or conjunctivitis).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dermatomyositis

    Pulmonary manifestations range from aspiration pneumonia to interstitial lung disease (ILD), sometimes with complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (see these[orpha.net] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[doi.org] Within a month after the operation, myalgia and rash, including Gottron's papules, developed, and skeletal-muscle enzymes elevated, so she was diagnosed with probable DM according[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    The incidence of dysphagia, rate of aspirations, rate of aspiration pneumonias and treatment results of dysphagia were analyzed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the low compound muscle action potential amplitudes could be explained by the loss of excitable muscle tissue that occurs in myopathies.[jamanetwork.com] The unexpected appearance of myalgia during the course of painless inclusion body myositis must arouse the suspicion of an association of another inflammatory muscle disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Complications Aspiration pneumonia due to throat muscle weakness. Acute respiratory failure during an exacerbation.[patient.info] Distinguishing features of the RNS test in LEMS and MG are confirmed in this direct comparison study: the low compound muscle action potential amplitude, decrement at LRS,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: This report presents a case-vignette of a 72-year-old woman with progressive proximal muscle weakness and myalgias, diagnosed with thymoma-associated myasthenia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rabies

    As the neurologic phase of rabies advances, chest radiographs might reveal infiltrates due to aspiration, acute respiratory distress syndrome, nosocomial pneumonia, or congestive[symptoma.com] Motor nerve conduction studies showed decreased conduction with dispersion of compound muscle action potential, low amplitude with prolonged distal latency and decreased nerve[web.archive.org] The illness begins with a non-specific prodrome period, comprising of fever, malaise, anorexia, N V, sore throat, myalgia and headache.[web.archive.org]

  • Neuropathy

    Compounding the problem of aspiration pneumonias and chronic lung disease is the presence of relative insensitivity to hypoxemia [ 23 - 26 ], which limits ability to cope[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients have relatively normal nerve conduction velocities but low amplitude sensory nerve action potentials and compound muscle action potentials.[merckmanuals.com] 2 The item concluded that if they did, the risk was very low, although isolated case reports suggested a myopathy risk for all statins, ranging from benign myalgia to fatal[jfponline.com]

  • Acquired Amyloid Myopathy

    Complications such as aspiration pneumonia become rather eminent. Several of these patients should be counseled regarding the insertion of a gastric feeding tube.[nature.com] Low compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) amplitudes may not necessarily indicate a neuropathic process, as it may reflect muscle atrophy and fibrosis.[journal.frontiersin.org] Dose- dependent myotoxic effects (including myalgia, myositis, or rhabdomyolysis) of statins occurs in 1% to 7% of patients.[rheumaknowledgy.com]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    The immediate cause of death was considered to be aspiration pneumonia.[academic.oup.com] CBs resolved, distal compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes increased and SNAPs normalized on subsequent testing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case report A 64-year-old man presented with a 5-day history of ataxia, and diplopia with a preceding malaise and general myalgia.[nature.com]

  • Neuromuscular Junction Disorder

    Aspiration pneumonia is clearly an undesirable outcome in someone with already compromised respiratory function.[jnnp.bmj.com] EMNG showed signs of myopathy and low compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitude (0,15 mV) on lower extremities. Muscle and nerve biopsy were normal.[neurology.org] Hypothyroidism may present with myalgia, cramps, stiffness and proximal myopathy Cushing's Syndrome and steroid induced myopathy.[academic.sun.ac.za]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    Approximately 2 months after the operation, he had aspiration pneumonia with respiratory failure.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] Distinguishing features of the RNS test in LEMS and MG are confirmed in this direct comparison study: the low compound muscle action potential amplitude, decrement at LRS,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An African 41 years-old SLE patient presented with persisting fatigue, myalgia and dyspnea, abolished reflexes and a bilateral ptosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
