    The neurologic examination indicated a diffuse hyporeflexia involving the spinal nerves, cranial nerve VII, and, possibly, the laryngeal innervation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemiplegia

    Magnetic resonance imaging showed diffuse and high signal hyperintensity of the whole right cerebral hemisphere.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of HHE syndrome in a 3-year-old boy with partial seizures (hemiconvulsion lasting 15-30 minutes) followed by left hemiplegia and hyporeflexia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type Jerash

    Jerash type distal hereditary motor neuropathy is a genetic disorder that affects the muscles in the body. The symptoms of the disorder begin to appear around age 6-10 years old. The main symptom of this disorder is a weakening and slow wasting away of muscles. First, weakness occurs in the lower limbs and[…][diseaseinfosearch.org]
