2,777 Possible Causes for Aspiration Pneumonia, Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Unilateral Ptosis

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    The examination found no signs of pupillary defects, eyelid ptosis, or nystagmus. Bilateral hyporeflexia was detected throughout the patient's body.[jaoa.org] 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]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    A46-year male presented with unilateral ptosis and diplopia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    This context may facilitate aspiration pneumonia or ICP elevation. Control of seizure episodes frequently required drug associations.[annalsofintensivecare.springeropen.com] This may lead to aspiration pneumonia, another common cause of death shortly after a stroke.[minddisorders.com]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    A subdural hematoma (SDH) is a type of hematoma—usually associated with traumatic brain injury—in which blood gathers between the inner layer of the dura mater and the arachnoid mater. It usually results from tears in bridging veins that cross the subdural space. Subdural hematomas may cause an increase in[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Syringomyelia

    Respiratory problems such as aspiration or pneumonia, skin breakdown, infections in the bladder and impaction of the bowels are just a few others.[spinalcordinjury-paralysis.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Dysphagia management is collaborative and can enhance nutrition and hydration goals as well as reduce the risk of aspiration pneumonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aspiration pneumonia (resulting from the food particles and/or liquids passing into the lungs) can also make breathing more difficult.[web.archive.org] Few studies reported deaths in the cannabinoid-treated groups (1 due to pneumonia, 13 1 to seizure-related aspiration pneumonia, and 2 to cancer, presumed unrelated 16 ).[n.neurology.org]

  • Craniopharyngioma

    Craniopharyngioma is a rare type of brain tumor derived from pituitary gland embryonic tissue that occurs most commonly in children, but also affects adults. It may present at any age, even in the prenatal and neonatal periods, but peak incidence rates are childhood-onset at 5–14 years and adult-onset at 50–74[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis

    Other potential complications include pneumonia (including aspiration pneumonia ) and urinary tract infection.[patient.info] It is possible that minor episodes of aspiration pneumonia occurred but were not symptomatic because of the ability of the lungs to clear small amounts of aspirated material[nejm.org] […] from aspiration of secretions . [63] Overall, 5 to 10 percent of patients with paralytic polio die due to the paralysis of muscles used for breathing.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Lead Encephalopathy

    Acute lead encephalopathy has become a rare syndrome in the United States. Early recognition of the disease, with institution of specific chelation therapy, is critical in order to minimize mortality and morbidity. Lead intoxication, however, may mimic other more common diseases. We report an 8-year-old child with[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Inclusion Body Myositis

    The authors describe a unique case in which inclusion body myositis presented with early mid face weakness and atrophy resulting in unilateral lagophthalmus, and ptosis, which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]
