410 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Evidence of Reinnervation, Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    For patients with MND affecting the LMNs, the EMG will show evidence of: (1) acute denervation, which is ongoing as motor neurons degenerate, and (2) chronic denervation and[en.wikipedia.org] Distinguishing Upper From Lower Motor Neuron Lesions Feature Upper Lesion Lower Lesion Reflexes Hyperactive Diminished or absent Atrophy Absent* Present Fasciculations Absent[merckmanuals.com] Poliomyelitis , an enteroviral infection that attacks anterior horn cells, and postpolio syndrome are also lower MNDs.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Postpoliomyelitis Syndrome

    Laboratory tests are used to show evidence of prior polio and to exclude other diseases: electromyography (EMG) displays signs of reinnervation and denervation both in symptomatic[europeanpolio.eu]

  • Meningomyelocele

    Myelomeningocele in the sacral area can produce a lower motor neuron lesion, resulting in detrusor areflexia.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypercalcemia

    Hypercalcemia is a disorder that most commonly results from malignancy or primary hyperparathyroidism. [1, 2, 3, 4, 19, 20] Other, less common causes of elevated calcium include increased intake or absorption, granulomatous disease, immobilization, and thiazide diuretic use. However, the primary diagnostic approach[…][emedicine.com]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuritis

    The occurrence of brachial plexus neuritis during the acute phase of vasculitis is uncommon. We describe a patient with a long history of rhinitis and a recent onset of asthma, who developed purpuric skin lesions, abdominal pain, eosinophilia and brachial neuritis along with evidence of sacral plexus neuropathy. High[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Amyotrophy

    Diabetic amyotrophy is a distinctive form of diabetic neuropathy. It is characterised by a weakness and wasting of proximal muscles of the lower limbs with associated pain. We report a case of an elderly patient with unusual presentation of diabetic amyotrophy. He presented with myoclonic jerks and recurrent falls.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
