  • Botulism

    Clostridium botulinum is known to cause descending paralysis in infants throughout the world.[] A 47-year-old white woman and her 51-year-old white husband presented with paralysis of multiple cranial nerves and rapidly descending paralysis approximately 72 hours after[] Botulism is characterized by symmetrical descending paralysis that may progress to respiratory arrest.[]

  • Paralysis

    Syn. oculomotor paralysis.[] descending paralysis , which occurs in conditions such as botulism .[] See abnormal head posture ; trochlear nerve ; paralytic strabismus . oculomotor paralysis See paralysis of the third nerve . paralysis of the sixth nerve A condition characterized[]

  • Brain Stem Infarction

    Clinical features specific to the ischemic involvement of the different regions of the brainstem are: Midbrain: ipsilateral oculomotor (3rd cranial nerve) paralysis with contralateral[] […] nucleus) Dysarthria Dysphagia Paralysis of the pharynx, palate, and vocal cord Loss of taste from the posterior third of the tongue (nuclei or fibers of CN IX and X) Contralateral[] nerve palsy resulting in loss of voluntary eye movements.[]

  • Nothnagel's Syndrome

    […] cranial nerve third or oculomotor • Neuritis oculomotor • Nothnagel's syndrome • Paralysis, paralytic nerve third or oculomotor total • Paralysis, paralytic oculomotor total[] Paralysis of soft palate and vocal cords (lesion in n. Ambigus, n. Vagi) on same side as that of the lesion. 2.[] Nothnagel syndrome (nōth′nāg″ĕl) [Carl Wilhelm Nothnagel, Ger. internist, 1841–1905] Paralysis of the oculomotor nerve combined with cerebellar ataxia resulting from a mass[]

  • Benedict Syndrome

    Moebius' disease refers to the migraine accompanied by paralysis of the oculomotor nerves.[] Descending motor fibres (but most are ventral to the lesion). Ipsilateral lower motor neuron facial paralysis.[] Pontine Syndrome Structures Affected Vestibular Nucleus Seventh Nerve Nucleus PPRF Auditory nerve nuclei Middle cerebral peduncle and hemisphere main sensory nucleus and descending[]

  • Basilar Artery Thrombosis

    Symptoms of cranial nerve dysfunction, including deafness, peripheral paresis of the facial nerve, abducens paresis, paralysis of the oculomotor nerve, are essential for establishing[] Horner's syndrome from damage to descending sympathetic fibres. Reduced corneal reflex from descending spinal tract damage. Nystagmus. Hypacusis. Dysarthria. Dysphagia.[] […] of face, arm, and leg Corticobulbar and corticospinal tract descending in crus cerebri 2.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    This provides a clear link to the clinical presentation of MFS because the GQ1b ganglioside is found predominantly in human oculomotor nerves.[] paralysis) Heavy metal intoxication (confusion, psychosis, organic brain syndrome) Hypophosphatemia (irritable, apprehensive, hyperventilation, normal cerebrospinal fluid[] For example, in 1986, Ropper described patients who developed rapidly progressive oropharyngeal, neck and shoulder weak ness that mimicked the descending paralysis seen in[]

  • Ophthalmoplegia totalis with Ptosis and Miosis

    Isolated palsy of just one of the muscles supplied by the oculomotor nerve (III) is unusual.[] Allen's test Acute onset of a symmetric flaccid descending paralysis, afebrile and normal mental status. botulism What disease can pityriasis rosea mimic?[] Hence, abducent nerve paralysis is important but it is a poor localising sign for a space-occupying lesion.[]

  • Spastic Ataxia with Congenital Miosis

    Neuro-ophthalmologic evaluation of oculomotor nerve paralysis. Arch Ophthalmol 1964;72:154-67. 2. Berlit P.[] This lesion involves the nucleus ambiguus, restiform body, and descending sympathetic pathways.[] , leads to blindness and death Vogt-Speilmeyer diffuse nervous system disease, macular lesions, and optic nerve degeneration Weber paralysis of the oculomotor nerve (N III[]

  • Mesencephalic Neoplasm

    , ipsilateral oculomotor nerve deficits, and spastic weakness or paralysis of all four limbs or those on the contralateral side of the body.[] As will be detailed below, 5HT is also implicated in the generation of sleep and dreaming, as well as the production of motor paralysis during sleep.[] Called also mesencephalon. midbrain lesion causes spastic paresis or paralysis, tremor, nystagmus, opisthotonos and depression or coma. midbrain syndrome mental depression[]
