5,457 Possible Causes for Blepharoptosis, Hyperactive Brainstem Reflexes, Rapid Progression

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Rapid progression and typical ubiquitinated inclusions in lower motor neurons were present in 77 (95%) of the cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org] Kovacs, Sandor Czirjak, Peter Pusztai, Ibolya Varga and Karoly Racz, Rapid Progression of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in an Acromegalic Patient After Surgical Resection[doi.org]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    A previous analysis of the British Columbia MS database challenged the view that disability progression is rapid in PPMS, but identified few predictors of disease progression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although progression is more rapid, age-related disability milestones are identical to relapsing-onset disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is called malignant multiple sclerosis and involves rapid progression and very intense symptoms. This subtype is in most cases deadly.[disabled-world.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Poor prognosis is associated with rapid progression of symptoms, advanced age and prolonged ventilation.[patient.info] RESULTS: A 41-year-old man presented with aggressive speech difficulty, dysphagia, right blepharoptosis, and quadriplegia following coma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract The acute “axonal” form of Guillain—Barre syndrome is characterized by rapid progression to severe widespread paralysis and respiratory dependence within 2–5 days[dx.doi.org]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    Rapid recognition and response is essential to reduce the risk of disability and death. 4,8,10 As the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) points[journals.lww.com] […] similar episodes, and absence of nonspecific symptoms such as gastrointestinal distress, chest pain, or shortness of breath. 1 No one can predict which TIAs are likely to progress[journals.lww.com]

  • Conjunctivitis

    The symptoms of acute bacterial conjunctivitis are far less severe, less rapid in onset, and progress at a much slower rate than those of hyperacute conjunctivitis.[aafp.org]

  • Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy

    Case 2, the son, showed early onset of weakness and more rapid progression of muscle involvement than the father.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive, usually symmetrical blepharoptosis, with or without dysphagia, appears during middle age. Muscular weakness in the limbs can be noted in some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] : Rapid Laboratory Serum CK: Mildly high EMG: Myopathic Japanese Distal weakness Cardiac conduction block OPMD families without increased GCG repeats Typical features Ptosis[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    Disease progression was rapid, and the majority of patients died from respiratory failure within 1–5 years after onset of disease.[link.springer.com] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org] Hereditary pure lower motor neuron disease with adult onset and rapid progression. J Neurol 2001 ; 248 : 290 –96.[academic.oup.com]

  • Syringomyelia

    progression of curve; - left thoracic scoliosis is common; - treatment of the scoliosis without recognition of syringomyelia and Chiari malformation can lead to paraplegia[wheelessonline.com] Rapid progress leads to the loss of working ability during 2 – 5 years.[intranet.tdmu.edu.ua] Young age, atypical curve, rapid curve progression, and back pain associated with scoliosis should alert clinicians to the possible presence of syringomyelia ( 31 ).[ispn.guide]
