62 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Hemiplegia, Unilateral Facial Weakness

  • Stroke

    Specifically, this exploratory study investigates changes in gait pattern among stroke patients with hemiparesis or hemiplegia during gait recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] movement 0—Normal 1—Minor facial weakness 2—Partial facial weakness 3—Complete unilateral palsy 5 Motor function (arm) 0—No drift a.[doi.org] This case report presents the clinical record of a 37-year-old man who presented with a dense right hemiplegia, found to be caused by a left medial medullary stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    About 3 months later, however, she developed left hemiplegia, and head magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple tumorous lesions affecting the previously detected infracted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient awoke slowly, and when awake she showed a combination of contralateral hemiplegia, and right hemianesthesia with global aphasia; the CT scan showed an ischemic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 28-year-old man presented with transient speech disturbance and right hemiplegia. Computed tomography of the brain revealed a low-density area in the right cerebellum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    In this case, we present a patient who presented to the pediatric emergency department with new-onset seizure and hemiplegia 2 days after a roller-coaster ride.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Historical note and terminology In 1657 Wepfer described the presence of a "bloody cyst" in the subdural space of an elderly man postmortem who had developed an aphasia and hemiplegia[medlink.com] […] common risk factors are: advanced age, alcohol abuse, seizures, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunts, coagulopathies, blood thinners, and patients at risk for falling (e.g. hemiplegia[intechopen.com]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    A brain tumor is the usual initial clinical and radiologic diagnostic impression in these patients, whose presenting symptoms include acute onset of hemiplegia, hemisensory[thefreelibrary.com] For example, blood and cerebrospinal fluid may also be tested to check for substances secreted by tumors (called tumor markers) and for gene abnormalities that are characteristic[merckmanuals.com] They begin in the ependymal cells that line the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain, where cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is manufactured.[encyclopedia.com]

  • Reversible Ischemic Neurologic Deficit

    Thus, a great variety of manifestations have been observed in different cases, including transient hemiplegia, hemianopsia, monoplegia, aphasia, paresthesia, localized convulsive[annals.org] Bykowski J, Latour LL, Warach S: More accurate identification of reversible ischemic injury in human stroke by cerebrospinal fluid suppressed diffusion-weighted imaging .[link.springer.com] Reflex sympathetic dystrophy in hemiplegia.

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    BACKGROUND A rare variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) consists of facial diplegia and paresthesia, but an even more rare association is with facial hemiplegia, similar[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in the cerebrospinal fluid.[symptoma.com] However, the patient developed unilateral left-sided facial weakness. She was managed with further intravenous immunoglobulin and intensive physiotherapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
