918 Possible Causes for Descending Paralysis

  • Botulism

    There is descending weakness or paralysis, that may extend to complete flaccid paralysis.[patient.info] The typical clinical picture includes symmetrical cranial nerve palsies followed by symmetrical descending flaccid motor paralysis, with cholinergic dysautonomia.[orpha.net] If untreated, illness may progress to cause descending paralysis; the shoulders are first affected, then the upper arms, lower arms, thighs, calves and so on.[www2.health.vic.gov.au]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    IF PRESENT ,CAST DOUBT ON DIAGNOSIS. • Progressive weakness usually begins in the feet. at presentation, 60% have weakness in all 4 limbs. usually symmetric. • GBS with a descending[slideshare.net] Paralysis 34.[slideshare.net] ) 3 Periodic paralysis 4.[slideshare.net]

  • Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis

    N/N, meaning they do not have the mutation and cannot pass it on, even if they are descendants of Impressive.[en.wikipedia.org] Coronary angiography showed significant disease of the left main stem, left anterior descending and circumflex arteries.[annals.in] Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis Type 1[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Periodic Paralysis

    IF PRESENT ,CAST DOUBT ON DIAGNOSIS. • Progressive weakness usually begins in the feet. at presentation, 60% have weakness in all 4 limbs. usually symmetric. • GBS with a descending[slideshare.net] Paralysis 34.[slideshare.net] ) 3 Periodic paralysis 4.[slideshare.net]

  • Quadriplegia

    Paralysis of both arms and both legs.[icd10data.com] This condition is usually caused by a lesion in the upper brain stem which injures the descending cortico-spinal and cortico-bulbar tracts.[icd10data.com] The locked-in syndrome is characterized by quadriplegia in combination with cranial muscle paralysis.[icd10data.com]

  • Tay-Sachs Disease

    This disease in mostly seen in the Ashkenazi Jew population who descended from Central or Eastern Europe.[diseaseinfosearch.org] These are people whose families descend from the Jewish communities in Central or Eastern Europe.[healthline.com] As a result, symptoms begin to develop that may include deafness or blindness, decreased muscle tone, paralysis, seizures, developmental delays, and a cherry-red spot visible[diseaseinfosearch.org]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    It can reverse paralysis and minimise disability.[patient.info] This leads to spinal cord compression and neurological signs (including weakness and paralysis).[patient.info] Abscesses in the lumbar region may descend down the sheath of the psoas to the femoral trigone region and eventually erode into the skin and form sinuses.[patient.info]

  • Paraplegia

    Complete paralysis is paraplegia where as partial paralysis is known as paraparesis paraplegia is of two types (Depending upon the part of nervous system involved and resulting[slideshare.net] Foot drop 25.  S1S2 segments;  Wasting & paralysis of intrinsic muscles of feet.  Wasting & paralysis of calf muscles Plantor flexion impaired.  But dorsi flexion of foot[slideshare.net] […] may occur in the upper limb.  Decreased diaphragm Movements due to compression of phrenic nerve.  Lower cranial nerve involvement & medullary involvement can occur.  Descending[slideshare.net]

  • Decompression Sickness

    As they descend into the water, the external pressure increases proportionally to the depth.[britannica.com] In diving, when the diver descends, nitrogen is breathed in and is dissolved in the blood and tissues.[divein.com] Face mask squeeze: This occurs if you do not exhale into the diver mask while descending.[webmd.com]
