245 Possible Causes for Compound Muscle Action Potential with Low Amplitude, Oculomotor Nerve Paralysis

  • 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[] The electroencephalographic findings (diffuse slow activity), median somatosensory evoked potential (absent cortical N20 with normal cervical N13), and blink reflex studies[]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    CBs resolved, distal compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes increased and SNAPs normalized on subsequent testing.[] 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.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    This study updates previous estimates of the economic burden of diagnosed diabetes and quantifies the increased health resource use and lost productivity associated with diabetes in 2012. The study uses a prevalence-based approach that combines the demographics of the U.S. population in 2012 with diabetes[…][]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major health and socioeconomic problem that affects all societies. In recent years, patterns of injury have been changing, with more injuries, particularly contusions, occurring in older patients. Blast injuries have been identified as a novel entity with specific characteristics.[…][]

  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 1

    Diabetes mellitus type 1 is a class of diabetes that develops secondary to the autoimmune destruction of the pancreatic beta cells, resulting in an insulin deficiency. In patients with a clinical picture suggestive of diabetes, the evaluation consists of a thorough personal and family history including a detailed[…][]

  • Meningitis

    Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges. The most common causes in adults are bacterial infections with Streptococcus pneumoniae, Neisseria meningitidis or Haemophilus influenzae. Aseptic meningitis may be caused by drugs (eg. NSAIDs, metronidazole and IV immunoglobulin), neoplasms or viruses. Typical signs and[…][]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    A subdural hematoma (SDH) is a type of hematoma—usually associated with traumatic brain injury—in which blood gathers between the inner layer of the dura mater and the arachnoid mater. It usually results from tears in bridging veins that cross the subdural space. Subdural hematomas may cause an increase in[…][]

  • Anterior Uveitis

    Anterior uveitis (AU) is most common form of uveitis. It is diagnosed in patients suffering from a primary inflammation of the iris and/or the ciliary bodies. The disease may be acute, recurrent, or chronic, and may affect one or both eyes. Affected individuals typically present with red eyes and claim blurred vision[…][]

  • Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome

    Idiopathic Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (ITHS) is a very rare cause of painful ophthalmoplegia characterized by unilateral orbital pain, ipsilateral oculomotor paralysis and prompt[] paralysis. 2 All three ocular motor cranial nerves can be affected to various degrees, and other cranial nerves, such as the facial nerve, can also be affected. 1 THS causes[] This syndrome is defined as episodic orbital pain associated with paralysis of one or more of the oculomotor, trochlea, and/or the abducens nerves, that usually resolves spontaneously[]

  • HIV Infection

    Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is caused by retroviruses HIV-1 and HIV-2, which induce the progressive destruction of CD4 T cells. The disease follows a progressive course and culminates in life-threatening acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). According to the classification system used by the[…][]
