83 Possible Causes for Conjunctivitis, Cranial Nerve Involvement, Hypersalivation

  • Bell's Palsy

    nerves involved recurrent palsy no recovery after 6-8 weeks MRI Enhancement of the nerve is not seen in all patients with Bell palsy, reported variably between 57-100%.[radiopaedia.org] In conjunction with a review of the literature, this case suggests that this phenotype carries with it a greater risk of serious complications affecting the eyelids and lacrimal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acupuncture and Kinesio Taping, in conjunction with physical therapy modalities, are safe and promising complementary therapies for the acute management of Bell's palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

    Cavernous sinus invasion by pituitary tumors presents mostly with cranial nerve palsies, especially involving the third, fourth and sixth cranial nerves, which is well documented[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We here report on a case of TN caused by cerebellar AVMs that was successfully treated by total AVMs resection in conjunction with microvasecular decompression (MVD) in one[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, there are twelve cranial nerves that directly connect to the body. These nerves are involved with the muscle and sensory function of the head and neck.[medicinenet.com]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    CONCLUSIONS: This is the first case of postirradiation neuromyotonia to be reported with such extensive cranial nerve and brainstem involvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ciclosporin has also proved to be efficacious in controlled trials, alone or in conjunction with prednisone ( Tindall 1993 ).[doi.org] The most common systemic side effects are sweating, hypersalivation, lacrimation, bronchial constriction and nightmares.[doi.org]

  • Pseudobulbar Palsy

    This is in contrast to bulbar palsy, which is a lower motor neuron syndrome involving the lowermost cranial nerves.[radiopaedia.org] (nuchal rigidity in particular) and dystonia (eg, blepharospasm, bruxism, and focal limb dystonia) [11] Methylcellulose or methyl alcohol eyedrops: For relief of chronic conjunctivitis[emedicine.medscape.com] The part of the pyramidal tract that sends information to the cranial nerves involved in speech and swallowing is called the corticobulbar tract.[csuchico.edu]

  • Botulism

    The PNS can also be affected leading to cranial nerve involvement, focal or multifocal neuropathies, and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The final statement incorporates all relevant evidence obtained in the literature search in conjunction with final consensus recommendations supported by all working group[doi.org] Rapid progression to respiratory failure and paralysis is seen in serotype F. [ 5 ] Signs Acute onset of bilateral cranial nerve involvement. Failure of accommodation.[patient.info]

  • Rabies

    It is therefore common for educational initiatives to be conducted in conjunction with other rabies control activities such as mass dog vaccination, however there are few[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The diagnosis is easy when a non-immunised patient presents with hydrophobia and hypersalivation after a bite by a known rabid animal but more difficult when a patient presents[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The use of immunocontraception may be considered, in conjunction with oral and parenteral rabies vaccination, as a complementary tool to reduce the density of dog populations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Electrodiagnostic tests MRI of the brain and, if no cranial nerve involvement, cervical spine Laboratory tests to check for other, treatable causes Diagnosis of motor neuron[merckmanuals.com] The term implies the involvement of the brain stem while the disease may be seen either as an isolated bulbar deficit or in conjunction with other upper/lower motor neuron[symptoma.com] […] therapists Nurse specialists and district nurses Dietitians Social workers Counsellors Palliative care specialists and hospice care Sleep technologists Together, and in conjunction[southerncross.co.nz]

  • Deliberate Exposure to Botulinum Toxin

    Blurred vision, dry mouth and difficulty swallowing follow as the cranial nerves become involved. Flaccid paralysis continues, symmetrical and descending.[health.qld.gov.au] The final statement incorporates all relevant evidence obtained in the literature search in conjunction with final consensus recommendations supported by all working group[experts.umn.edu] Eye inflammation (conjunctivitis) can result from contact of the aerosol with the eyes. Inhalation can rarely cause death.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Herpes Simplex Infection

    This is most serious when cranial nerves are involved, affecting the face/head. Where the eye is involved, severe sight impairment can result.[patient.info] Examination revealed unilateral necrotizing scleritis and conjunctivitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Virtually any part of the neuraxis may be affected by this virus, including the retina, brain, brainstem, cranial nerves, spinal cord, and nerve roots.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Iodide Poisoning

    IMS- muscle weakness of • Muscles innervated by cranial nerves : III-VII and X • Neck flexors - a constant feature - one of the earliest signs - inability of patients to raise[slideshare.net] Pharmacological properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties Iodine and iodides are used in the pre-operative treatment of hyperthyroidism in conjunction with antithyroid agents[medicines.org.uk] Potassium Iodide is recommended in conjunction with the silver salts to help prevent silver toxicity.[silvermedicine.org]
