11 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis, Unilateral Arm Weakness

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) does not necessarily help in establishing the diagnosis as there are no pathognomonic features.[pmj.bmj.com] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[medlink.com] Lumbar Puncture Unless there is clinical suspicion of meningitis, examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is typically not helpful in cases with focal neurological abnormalities[ahajournals.org]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    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] 3 months; new parictal lesion. deficits and with mass effect abnormalities; Dx: MS BAEP Brain stem auditory evoked potential, CC corpus callosum, CSF cerebrospinal fluid,[thefreelibrary.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]

  • Cerebrovascular Disorder

    Stroke symptoms include: sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm, or leg, often unilateral; confusion; difficulties in speaking or seeing with one or both eyes; difficulties[doi.org] Hydrocephalus: An abnormally increased amount of cerebrospinal (brain) fluid inside the skull; usually, this is because the fluid is not circulating properly.[webmd.com] In cases of superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, the infarcts are typically bilateral and in a parasagittal location.[spinwarp.ucsd.edu]

  • Infantile Hemiplegia

    Pleocytosis, initially polymorphonuclear and subsequently lymphocytic, and an elevated cerebrospinal fluid protein content are usually found.[kundoc.com] CVT 2. superior sagittal sinus thrombosis 3. meningitis( parenteral diarrhoea) 4. ???[aippg.net] Hemiplegic Gait The patient stands with unilateral weakness on the affected side, arm flexed, adducted and internally rotated.[web.archive.org]

  • Myelopathy

    , 26, 27, 28 Cerebrospinal fluid remains hypointense on T1-weighted studies, while the cord appears isointense.[nature.com] Superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is another midline intracranial disorder that can mimic a myelopathy.[pn.bmj.com] It is typically unilateral. Numbness and weakness follow the same distribution. Some patients will exhibit signs and symptoms of radiculopathy and myelopathy.[aafp.org]

  • Severe Neonatal-Onset Encephalopathy with Microcephaly

    Lactic acidemia and elevated lactate in the cerebrospinal fluid have been found in patients with PCH6 due to reduced activity of mitochondrial complexes I, III, and IV.[cerebellumandataxias.biomedcentral.com] Superior sagittal sinus thrombosis can also cause bilateral paramedian brain injury, but in these cases the thrombus itself can usually be visualized at MR imaging ( 18 ).[ajnr.org] , arms legs o Periventricular leukomalacia § Periventricular white matter § Prems, lower limb weakness o Focal/multifocal § Unilateral or bilateral cortex and white matter[emilytam.com]
