111 Possible Causes for Descending Paralysis, Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Paralysis

    descending paralysis , which occurs in conditions such as botulism .[] These results demonstrate that BAT inflammation is linked to peripheral neuropathy.[] Peripheral neuropathy has been associated with the administration of certain drugs.[]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    As mentioned earlier, descending paralysis is a characteristic manifestation of Miller Fisher syndrome.[] The authors present a 65-year-old man with Miller-Fisher syndrome consisting of bilateral ophthalmoplegia, trigeminal and facial nerve palsy, mild ataxia and peripheral neuropathy[] Nerve conduction studies were indicative of a predominantly axonal sensori-motor peripheral neuropathy.[]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    We report a heterozygous I113F mutation in a patient with familial ALS characterized by early and predominant bilateral vocal cord paralysis followed by descending spinal[] A possible viral etiology has been documented in the genesis of motor neuron disorders and acquired peripheral neuropathies, mainly due to the vulnerability of peripheral[] Peripheral neuropathy is a classic feature of many vasculitic syndromes and in some patients it may be the only manifestation of vasculitis.[]

  • Intestinal Botulism

    Intestinal colonization botulism, rare in adults, should be considered for patients with descending paralysis, especially those with a preceding alteration in small bowel[] Part two then addresses the complete range of specific neuromuscular diseases: neuronopathies, peripheral neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, muscle ion channel[] Clinical features Neurological symptoms Descending paralysis Peripheral flaccid muscle paralysis that descends caudally Typically begins in frequently used muscles Pupils:[]

  • Carcinomatous Myopathic Syndrome

    paralysis, normal DTRs, may need respiratory support), Eaton Lambert Syndrome, Psych Diagnosis, Depression, Malnutrition, Electrolyte Abnormalities (Na, K, Mg, Phos, Ca -[] Peripheral neuropathy can present as restless leg syndrome.[] neuropathy Neuromuscular disturbances/disorders Spinal cord lesion Motor neuron disease Radicular neuropathy Myopathy/secondary/nonspecific Peripheral neuropathy syndrome[]

  • Tick Paralysis

    […] that the acute ascending or rare descending type of paralysis originally described by Landry is simply a form of poliomyelitis, whereas others contend that Landry's paralysis[] Abstract There is a remarkable difference of opinion among neurologists, internists and epidemiologists, with regard to the identity of Landry's paralysis: some contending[]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Clinicians frequently think of the symptoms of botulism in terms of a classic triad: bulbar palsy and descending paralysis, lack of fever, and clear senses and mental status[] Muscle atrophy, and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can be present. MRI shows atrophy in the cerebellum, spinal cord, and brainstem.[] neuropathy).[]

JAMA 1906;47:1638-1645.[] neuropathy in the absence of other disorders such as diabetes mellitus.[] , paralytic lateral • Sclerosis, sclerotic lateral • Sclerosis, sclerotic lateral descending • Sclerosis, sclerotic lateral primary • Sclerosis, sclerotic lateral spinal •[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    paralysis) Heavy metal intoxication (confusion, psychosis, organic brain syndrome) Hypophosphatemia (irritable, apprehensive, hyperventilation, normal cerebrospinal fluid[] In some cases, peripheral neuropathy may develop. GBS improves spontaneously, but the recovery period may take from several weeks to more than a year.[] GBS is an autoimmune peripheral neuropathy usually triggered by an antecedent bacterial or viral infection, with SLE being a rare cause.[]

  • Phrenic Nerve Palsy

    (similar to tick paralysis and in contrast to descending paralysis seen in botulism and paralytic-neurotoxic shellfish poisoning) Hypothyroidism (see Hypothyroidism ) Hypothyroidism-associated[] Despite its relative safety, known complications can include seizure, pneumothorax, high cervical blocks, peripheral neuropathies, and cardiovascular collapse [ 1 ].[] , especially when it represents the only manifestation of peripheral neuropathy.[]
