46 Possible Causes for Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude

  • Neuropathy

    Patients have relatively normal nerve conduction velocities but low amplitude sensory nerve action potentials and compound muscle action potentials.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Food-Borne Botulism

    Electrophysiologic tests of such patients show reduced compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs), low amplitudes and short durations of motor unit potentials (MUPs), and mild[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bickerstaff Brainstem Encephalitis

    (absent R2) suggested central dysfunction, whereas results of facial nerve conduction studies (low amplitudes of compound muscle action potentials), F-wave and H-reflex studies[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The electroencephalographic findings (diffuse slow activity), median somatosensory evoked potential (absent cortical N20 with normal cervical N13), and blink reflex studies[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tick Paralysis

    Neurophysiological studies reveal low-amplitude compound muscle action potentials with normal motor conduction velocities, normal sensory studies and normal response to repetitive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 1

    Compound muscle action potentials are either absent or low amplitude with motor conduction velocities ranging from 3 to 10 meters per second.[academlib.com] Diagnostically, these infants have absent SNAPs or low amplitude SNAPs with prolonged distal latencies.[academlib.com]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    CBs resolved, distal compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes increased and SNAPs normalized on subsequent testing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the other patient, initial studies showed low/normal CMAPs, with absent SNAPs, without demyelinating features. This patient fully recovered within 21 days from onset.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
