318 Possible Causes for Cardiac Arrhythmia, Extremity Ataxia, Progressive Polyneuropathy

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (ataxia, confusion, ophthalmoplegia), amnesic problems, peripheral neuropathy and dementia.[] arrhythmia may occur.[] Heavy drinking can affect the electrical impulses in the heart, which may result in cardiac arrhythmia that could be fatal.[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    On admission, the patient exhibited bifacial, extremity weakness, ataxia, impaired sensation, and areflexia. Electrophysiology and nerve biopsy suggested demyelination.[] A sizeable number of patients also develop autonomic dysfunction where they experience fluctuations in their blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmias.[] Shortly after HSCT the patient developed progressive polyneuropathy of the lower legs and hypoesthesia. Five months later a severe dementia followed.[]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    We report a fatal case of severe chronic progressive axonal polyradiculoneuropathy in association with this antibody.[] Cerebellar symptoms : ataxia, unsteady gait, dysdiadochokinesia, intention tremor Note that symptoms often emerge months before the discovery of a primary tumor ![] Autonomic failure results in orthostatic hypotension, abnormal papillary responses, urinary retention, gastrointestinal paresis, hyperhydrosis, impotence, cardiac arrhythmias[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    , and loss of deep tendon reflexes with relative sparing of strength in the extremities and trunk.[] arrhythmias, cardiac arrest[] Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare condition in pregnancy which is characterised by symmetrical progressive ascending polyneuropathy.[]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    In later stages, spasticity, extensor plantar responses, greater loss of position and vibratory sensation in the lower extremities, and ataxia emerge.[] Other uncommon side effects include skin rash, hot flushes, nausea, dizziness and cardiac arrhythmias.[] peripheral neuropathy, and spinal degeneration.[]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    Ms Q is a 52-year-old woman who has had progressive polyneuropathy in the setting of diabetes for the past 8 years.[] Deep tendon reflexes were symmetric and graded 2 in all extremities.[] In diabetes, autonomic disorders, such as orthostatic hypotension, cardiac arrhythmia, gastric paresis, intestinal and urinary bladder disorders, pupil abnormalities, etc.[]

  • Familial Progressive Polyneuropathy

    […] with marked disturbances of sensation and ataxia of movement and caused by an interstitial hypertrophic neuritis that ascends with consecutive medullary [cord] lesions.[] Cardiac arrhythmias in familial amyloid polyneur- opathy during anaesthesia. Acta Anaesthesiol Scand 1986; 30: 317–20. PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 5.[] Abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and pathological features in patients with progressive-type familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) using[]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    We describe a case of a young black woman with gradually progressive lower extremity paresthesias, weakness, and ataxia as the primary presenting symptoms of pernicious anemia[] This can lead to cardiac arrhythmias (fast or irregular heartbeats), an enlarged heart, and even heart failure (in which the heart cannot pump blood efficiently enough to[] ), ataxia and positive Babinski reflexes.[]

  • Vasculitis

    Neuropathy Sensory or Sensory-Motor General patterns Mononeuritis multiplex (13%) Asymmetric polyneuropathy (85%) Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (2%) More slowly progressive[] Sensory loss: Large Small fiber modalities Gait: Sensory ataxia; Romberg positive Motor: Normal strength Tendon reflexes: Absent or Reduced Course Neuropathy onset: 1 to[] Pericarditis Myocardial fibrosis: Arrhythmias Pulmonary Parenchymal disease Pulmonary hypertension Restricted chest wall movement Renal dysfunction: 2 Vascular intimal hyperplasia[]

  • Acute Pandysautonomia

    The serial electrophysiologic studies revealed progressive periphear axonal polyneuropathy.[] There h y m an, w as 3 1 ye ar s ol d w a s marked extremity ataxia a n d total loss o f tendon iour o f h i s left testis w a s reflexes b u t n o obvious muscle weakness[] These symptoms are often milder and may include sicca manifestations, postural orthostatism, cardiac arrhythmias, bladder dysfunction, or gastrointestinal dysmotility" Postural[]
