1,871 Possible Causes for Cranial Nerve Involvement, Tertiary Contractions of the Esophagus

  • 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] […] of the third cranial nerve, or myasthenia gravis (fatigable ptosis).[proz.com] Other common ocular signs are incomitant strabismus, external opthalmoplegia, mimicking motor cranial nerve palsies. The pupils are never involved in MG.[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Otitis Externa

    Nine patients had cranial nerve involvement. Twelve of 15 patients treated with medical therapy recovered, as did 11 of 12 patients that underwent surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The facial nerve, Cranial Nerve VII, may be involved and manifests as facial paralysis if the infection spreads to the stylomastoid foramen where CN VII exits the skull.[emdocs.net] nerve involvement did not affect prognosis.[emdocs.net]

    Many factors are involved, including the accumulation of sorbitol in peripheral sensory nerves from sustained hyperglycemia.[emedicine.com] Motor neuropathy and cranial mononeuropathy result from vascular disease in blood vessels supplying nerves.[emedicine.com]
