66 Possible Causes for Blepharoptosis, Cerebrospinal Fluid Protein Increased

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    In the hyperacute phase of SAH, slight shortening of T1 occurs due to the increased protein and new cellular content within cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).[]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). Extensive and repeated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations showed only diffuse abnormality in brain and spinal cord, but no focal lesions. We propose[…][]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    RESULTS: A 41-year-old man presented with aggressive speech difficulty, dysphagia, right blepharoptosis, and quadriplegia following coma.[] The increase of protein level in cerebrospinal fluid is more marked in recurrent episodes.[] Brachial Variant (PCB) It characteristically involves cervical, brachial and oropharyngeal muscles, hyporeflexia or areflexia in upper limbs and sometimes facial palsy, blepharoptosis[]

  • Lyme Neuroborreliosis

    Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) studies disclosed mononuclear pleocytosis with elevated protein levels.[] In previous studies, we showed that (I) CXCL13 levels are markedly increased in the B cell-rich cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with acute Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB[] Both serum and CSF anti-Borrelia titers were significantly increased, and serum Western Blot showed bands to protein 34 (ops B), 57, 59 and 62.[]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Subdural hematoma is defined as a collection of blood outside the brain below the dura mater. Presentations seen is dependent on the level of bleeding but general include siezures, apathy, weakness, lethargy, nausea, dizziness, behaviorual changes, confusion and severe headache. Chronic subdural hematoma may have[…][]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Nitric oxide synthase is present in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with active multiple sclerosis and is associated with increases in cerebrospinal fluid protein nitrotyrosine[] Increased cerebrospinal fluid tau protein in multiple sclerosis. Eur Neurol 2000; 43(4): 228–32 PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 107.[] Cerebrospinal fluid: rise in total protein with increase in immunoglobulin concentration with presence of oligoclonal cases.[]

  • Syringomyelia

    Bronchogenic cysts refer to congenital anomalies derived from the primitive foregut. Spinal bronchogenic cysts are uncommon entities, and those occurring in the intramedullary sites are extremely rare. Bronchogenic cysts involving the foramen magnum region have only been described in 2 cases; however,[…][]

  • Kearns-Sayre Syndrome

    A 16-year-old patient suffering from Kearns-Sayre syndrome presented with severe blepharoptosis. A levator advancement procedure was performed.[] fluid (CSF) protein and reduced folic-acid levels that are characteristic of KSS.[] All preoperative and postoperative values were considered to be statistically significant ( P Conclusion: The surgical technique described to correct the blepharoptosis found[]

  • Tabes Dorsalis

    Serum VDRL was 1:32 and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) VDRL was 1:4. CSF analysis showed increased lymphocytes and protein.[] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis showed clear fluid with total cell count 80 cells/mm 3 , out of which lymphocytes were 65 cells/mm 3 (increased), sugar 64.0 mg/dl, protein[]

  • Rabies

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain indicated increased signal in the cerebrospinal fluid. His neurologic status continued to deteriorate.[] Results consistent with the diagnosis Most routine laboratory tests are nondiagnostic, however hyponatremia is often present, and routine cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) chemistries[] A lumbar puncture indicated a mild lymphocytic pleocytosis (25 white blood cells/mm 3 ) and a mildly elevated protein.[]
