900 Possible Causes for Dysarthria, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Lyme Disease

    A 59 year-old woman developed pyrexia, strong headaches, ataxia, dysarthria and tremor of the limbs after a tick bite. She was unable to work and eat on her own.[] neuropathy and sometimes motor neuron disease, neuropsychiatric presentations, cardiac presentations (including electrical conduction delays and dilated cardiomyopathy),[] […] nerve deficits ( figure 2 jpg ppt ); - in 9, bladder dysfunction; - in 7, sensory disturbances; - in 6, ataxia; - in 4, altered personality; - in 2, flaccid paresis; - in 2, dysarthria[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Facial weakness, dysphasia or dysarthria may develop. In severe cases, muscle weakness may lead to respiratory failure.[] In this type, the covering around peripheral nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN).[] In many cases other cranial nerves may also be involved, with the possibilities of coexistent dysphagia and dysarthria.[]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Symptoms started early in childhood and included severe ataxia, dysarthria, severe psychomotor delay, and central and peripheral neurologic manifestations.[] motor neuropathy.[] A 45-year-old man with end-stage renal disease due to polycystic kidney disease was admitted to the hospital because of recurrent abdominal pain, progressive peripheral motor[]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    neuropathy (patchy numbness and paresthesias), Proximal motor weakness (usually starting in upper extremities which can progress to include respiratory impairment and death[] […] abdominal pain which is severe and poorly localized (most common, 95% of patients experience), Urinary symptoms (Dysuria, urinary retention/incontinence or dark urine), peripheral[]

  • Epilepsy

    He developed gait imbalance, intentional tremor and dysarthria.[] Folic acid on peripheral nerve One study ( Horwitz 1968 ) investigated the effects of folic acid on 12 participants with neuropathy.[] The patient was a 27-year-old man with progressive action myoclonus, ataxia, epilepsy, dysarthria and absence of cognitive deterioration.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    An 82-year-old woman developed neck weakness and dysarthria with antibodies against acetylcholine receptor (AChR) and low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 4 (LRP4[] Macroglobulinemia with peripheral neuropathy simulating motor neuron disease. Ann Neurol 1981;11: 532-536. [ Links ] 17. Van Schaik IN, Bossuyt PM, Brand A, Vermeulen M.[] […] progression are available for ALS, but patient management is largely mediated by symptomatic therapies, such as the use of muscle relaxants for spasticity and speech therapy for dysarthria[]

  • Tick Paralysis

    ., paralysis of muscles controlling eye movement), dysarthria (i.e., slurred or abnormal speech), and areflexia (i.e., absence of neurologic reflexes); nerve conduction studies[] ., patients are unable to perform standard eye movements, present dysphagia and dysarthria. Involvement of respiratory muscles results in dyspnea.[] ., dysarthria, dysphagia, and lingual, facial, and ocular paralysis) [ 14 ]. Respiratory paralysis occurs followed by death.[]

  • Lyme Neuroborreliosis

    We report the case of a 23-year-old male patient who suddenly developed right hemiparesis, cerebellar ataxia, dysarthria, and bilateral dysmetria.[] , mononeuropathy, cranial neuropathies, diffuse polyneuropathies, entrapment neuropathies, and possibly motor neuron disease) in adults.[] The neurological examination showed a Horner syndrome and dysmetria on the right side, dysarthria, as well as gait ataxia.[]

  • Central Pontine Myelinolysis

    There was little improvement in the dysarthria or psychiatric symptoms in the first month.[] […] disturbances, behavioural changes, headache and peripheral neuropathy (reviewed by Lawrence and Major, 2002 ).[] He only displayed bulbar palsy and dysarthria.[]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    Several weeks after admission, diagnostic breakthrough was achieved when the gradual resolution of the patient's amnesia, encephalopathy and dysarthria allowed an accurate[] […] weakness, peripheral neuropathies, hearing loss, and Parkinsonian-like syndrome.[] Partial resolution of his dysarthria, amnesia and encephalopathy aided dialogue and the first person history was obtained for the first time.[]
