3,428 Possible Causes for Dementia, Neuropathy

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    Vitamin B12 deficiency, which may present without anemia and as a peripheral neuropathy, is often misdiagnosed as diabetic neuropathy, although the clinical findings are usually[] A clinical diagnosis of dementia with delirium was made.[] Participation included measuring vitamin B12 levels and assessing peripheral neuropathy using Neuropathy Total Symptom Score-6 (NTSS-6) questionnaire.[]

  • Amyloidosis

    Nerve conduction studies were consistent with multifocal demyelinating neuropathy.[] A series of 340 carriers of the TTRVal30Met mutation (180 symptomatic and 160 asymptomatic) underwent a neuropsychological assessment, which included the Dementia Rating Scale[] BACKGROUND: Hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder, first described in families with sensorimotor and autonomic neuropathy.[]

  • Sterol 27-Hydroxylase Deficiency

    Patients may experience extrapyramidal manifestations (dystonia and atypical parkinsonism), and peripheral neuropathy.[] Peripheral neuropathy and extrapyramidal symptoms like dystonia and atypical parkinsonism may also be present.[] Genetic testing of the CYP27A1 gene is confirmatory and is increasingly being used as a first line test as part of symptom specific gene panels (genetic eye disease, ataxia, dementia[]

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    Secondary objectives are to evaluate the effect of patisiran on Norfolk-Diabetic Neuropathy quality of life questionnaire score, nutritional status (as evaluated by modified[] […] b Department of Biological Sciences for Intractable Neurological Diseases , Institute for Biomedical Sciences, Shinshu University , Matsumoto , Japan. 3 c Department of Dementia[] In some patients, a leptomeningeal form that include ataxia, spastic paralysis, seizures, dementia and visual disturbances as most important symptoms may be seen.[]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    We suggest that paraneoplastic neuropathy should be considered during the management of trigeminal neuropathic pain, especially when brain imagery is normal.[] […] may include difficulty in walking or swallowing, loss of muscle tone, loss of fine motor coordination, slurred speech, memory loss, vision problems, sleep disturbances, dementia[] Pittock, Autoimmune dementias, Non‐Alzheimer's and Atypical Dementia, (123-133), (2016). Nese Sinmaz, Tina Nguyen, Fiona Tea, Russell C.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    In 42 patients (67.7%), we observed the presence of clinical and/or infraclinical neuropathy, mostly axonal, in 29 males (65.9%) and 13 females (72.2%).[] The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia.[] NUTRITIONAL – of course, can lead to Thiamine deficiency -- Wernicke/Korsakoff -- Dry and Wet Beriberi, Niacin deficiency -- Pellagra (diarrhea, dementia, dermatitis), Folate[]

  • Mercury Poisoning

    These findings are different from other peripheral neuropathies and may be characteristics of the late changes of the sural nerve induced by organic mercury compound.[] This is often labeled as dementia, autism, ADHD, Parkinson’s, depression, migraines, and more.[] On the first follow-up visit performed 1 month after discharge, the neurological examinations of all patients were normal except for those patients with peripheral neuropathy[]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    Such paraneoplastic neuropathies manifest with a constellation of autonomic abnormalities.[] […] disease and 95 (8.1%) had vascular dementia.[] Paraneoplastic neuropathies associated with leukemia are rare, and early diagnosis and treatment are crucial due to the potential for irreversible neurological deficits and[]

  • Adult Polyglucosan Body Disease

    A 50 year old patient is described who presented with parkinsonism, frontal dementia, peripheral neuropathy, neurogenic bladder, and upper motor neuron signs.[] CONCLUSIONS: It is important to consider APBD in cases of familial dementia of unknown etiology. Ante-mortem biopsy of axillary skin may be diagnostic.[] We highlight that peripheral neuropathy, deemed as disease hallmark, may be missing and that transient symptoms are confirmed as early disease manifestations.[]

  • Thiamine Deficiency

    Alcoholic neuropathy is clinicopathologically distinct from thiamine-deficiency neuropathy. Ann. Neurol. 54, 19–29 (2003). 11. Koike, H. et al.[] […] found primarily in alcoholics are Wernicke’s encephalopathy (WE) and Korsakoff psychosis, which often combine as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS), ultimately leading to dementia[] Alzheimer’s disease Scientists are studying the possibility that thiamin deficiency could affect the dementia of Alzheimer’s disease.[]
