185 Possible Causes for Bilateral Arm Weakness, Cervico-Occipital Neuralgia

  • Platybasia

    Objectives : To estimate the prevalence of platybasia in patients with velopharyngeal incompetence (VPI) and its relation with palatal anomalies and syndromes. Design and Settings : Retrospective case analysis. Setting : A university-affiliated hospital. Patients : The VPI patients (n 366) included five groups with[…][]

  • Cervical Osteoarthritis

    , either unilateral or bilateral. 3) Muscle weakness: Depending on which nerve root gets compressed, the concerned muscles that are supplied by that nerve root gets affected[] […] affected by the pathology. a) Upper cervical spine- Headache b) Mid cervical spine- Neck pain c) Region from C4 to T2- Radiating pain; pain in shoulder girdle , shoulder and arm[]

  • Neuralgia

    These patients are more likely to have pain on both sides of the face (bilateral trigeminal neuralgia) and often have other neurological abnormalities, such as weakness or[] Neuralgia of the Neck and Trunk.—Cervico-occipital Neuralgia .—Exposure to cold, or cervical caries, is the most frequent cause of this form of neuralgia.[] […] numbness in the arms or legs, dizziness, unsteadiness and double vision.[]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuritis

    weakness.[] […] metastases Click here to view Brachial plexus neuritis Acute brachial plexitis presents with severe shoulder and upper arm pain lasting for few days to weeks followed by upper arm[] […] neuritis is of unknown cause but an immune-mediated inflammatory reaction following viral infection, vaccination, surgery, pregnancy, etc., has been proposed as etiology .

    The presentation was characterized by acute onset dysphagia, loss of head control, and bilateral arm weakness.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Mutations in the TAR-DNA Binding Protein-43 (TDP-43) encoding the TARDBP gene are present in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). TDP-43 is the major component of ubiquitin-positive inclusions in motor neurons in ALS patients. We report here a novel heterozygous missense mutation in TARDBP in an ALS patient[…][]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Late-onset glycogen storage disease type 2 (GSD2)/Pompe disease is a progressive multi-system disease evoked by a deficiency of lysosomal acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA) activity. GSD2 is characterized by respiratory and skeletal muscle weakness and atrophy, resulting in functional disability and reduced life span.[…][]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    History Symptoms of Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) usually begin insidiously and progress slowly. Many patients have symptoms for months or years before the diagnosis is made. Weakness is the major symptom. Weak muscles may ache and are occasionally tender. Proximal muscles are more affected than[…][]

  • Tick-Borne Encephalitis

    Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is an important viral infection of the central nervous system with high morbidity and mortality. With the increase of tourism TBE is becoming a problem also outside endemic regions. Italy is considered a country with low incidence of TBE and geographically restricted to the central and[…][]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    In recent years, the technique of combined ultrasound and electrical stimulation-guided nerve block has been recommended. We present 2 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy who exhibited different muscle responses to nerve stimulation during the performance of peripheral nerve blocks for surgeries. Whereas a[…][]
