17 Possible Causes for Descending Paralysis, Myasthenia Gravis, Pupillary Abnormality

  • Botulism

    INTRODUCTION: Clostridium botulinum is known to cause descending paralysis in infants throughout the world.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Findings that distinguish botulism from myasthenia gravis: nausea/vomiting, poorly reactive pupils, and paralysis of accommodation. [Purvin V, Kawasaki A.[web.archive.org] paralysis and/or other symptoms, and reduce associated treatment costs to states.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Wound Botulism

    Decreased or absent deep tendon reflexes, pupillary abnormalities, incremental responses to fast repetitive nerve stimulation, and positive serology for Clostridia botulinum[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wound botulism in 7 heroin 'skin poppers' produced ophthalmoplegia and descending paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wound botulism may be underdiagnosed because of confusion with inflammatory neuropathy or myasthenia gravis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuromuscular Junction Disorder

    Autonomic symptomatology, with dry mouth, dry eyes, sexual impotence, constipation, and abnormal pupillary reflexes, is frequent. Hyporeflexia is common.[what-when-how.com] In its nontherapeutic form, the toxin is produced by bacteria and can cause a paralysis that starts with the muscles of the face and throat and descends over the rest of the[verywell.com] Transient neonatal myasthenia gravis is self-limited with a reported duration of 5 to 47 days with a mean duration of 18 days (133).[academlib.com]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    Besides the characteristic clinical triad (ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia), pupillary abnormalities, blepharoptosis, and facial palsy are frequent in MFS, whereas[n.neurology.org] As mentioned earlier, descending paralysis is a characteristic manifestation of Miller Fisher syndrome.[buzzle.com] A provisional diagnosis of ocular myasthenia gravis was made, and anticholinesterase inhibitor therapy was initiated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Food-Borne Botulism

    Common clinical features included ptosis, ophthalmoplegia, proximal muscle weakness, pupillary abnormality, and respiratory failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Botulism classically presents as acute symmetrical descending flaccid paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Myasthenia gravis .
