1,338 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Weakness

  • Stroke

    weakness; there were two patients with stroke of undetermined etiology and they had uniform finger weakness.[] A 57-year-old male patient presented with complete weakness of the right extremities due to an intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in the left basal ganglia.[] All patients had dysarthria, with only one having mild tongue weakness and only four having facial weakness.[]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Facial numbness and weakness are also common.[] We report a 49-year-old woman with a history of progressive gait disturbance, white matter disease, and cerebrospinal fluid immunoglobulin abnormalities who met criteria for[] We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS).[]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    Gait instability and left-side weakness developed abruptly 2 weeks later; brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed a hematoma over the right parietal-occipital lobe.[] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) studies disclosed mononuclear pleocytosis with elevated protein levels.[] Symptoms include sudden tingling, weakness, numbness, paralysis, severe headache, difficulty with swallowing or vision, loss of balance or coordination, difficulty understanding[]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    A patient with uvular cancer presented with lower limb weakness and paresthesiae, headache, neck stiffness and multiple cranial palsies.[] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was abnormal in all cases analyzed (five of six) but CSF cytology was definitive in only 3.[] Cancer cells can also disturb nerves exiting the brain causing numbness, weakness, or pain.[]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    After onset, he presented with complete weakness of both legs. The patient was diagnosed as spontaneous SAH and IVH.[] […] for SAH; CT negative for SAH and inconclusive cerebrospinal fluid examination.[] This case report describes a 48-year old female who presented with altered mental status, lower extremity weakness, low back pain and a recent history of subjective fevers[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    In 1990, a 58-year-old man noted weakness in the hands.[] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) testing revealed no abnormalities except for an elevated neopterin concentration at 143.17 pmol/mL (normal 30 pmol/mL).[] Abnormal distribution of lead in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Reestimation of lead in the cerebrospinal fluid. J Neurol Sci, 1980; 48: 413–418.[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    So I feel weak (at rest) but in fact am not weak (in motion) ..[] The condition is associated with absent or diminished tendon reflexes, impaired sensation, an elevated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein level, abnormal nerve-conduction studies[] In most cases, it is also associated with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein-cell separation.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    But weakness that increases over several days is also common. Muscle weakness or loss of muscle function (paralysis) affects both sides of the body.[] […] in the cerebrospinal fluid.[] […] findings from neurophysiological studies elevated protein in cerebrospinal fluid, without a significant increase in white cells relatively symmetrical weakness mild sensory[]

  • Leigh's Disease

    Also, does Leigh's disease degenerate the cranial nerves, is this why we are seeing the eye weakness?[] There also tends to be a high level of a chemical called lactic acid in the fluid round the brain called the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).[] An unusual presentation of Leigh's disease consisting of rapid progression of leg weakness in a young child is discussed.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    This can lead to numbness or weakness of the arms or legs. People who have mild disease or in whom the diagnosis is not certain are usually closely monitored.[] However, some patients may have cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) abnormalities; specifically, increased protein and decreased soluble β-amyloid or ApoE.[] Anemia: A lack of growth of red blood cells causes extreme tiredness, weakness, and dizziness.[]
