531 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Evidence of Reinnervation, Tongue Paralysis

  • 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[] It often begins on one side of the body, and ultimately leads to paralysis.[] reinnervation of the muscle, as the remaining motor neurons attempt to fill in for lost motor neurons.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is one of the most common forms of motor neuron diseases. It is also known as “Lou Gehrig's disease”, after a well-known baseball player in New York. The hallmark of the disease is a mixed upper and lower motor neuropathy that is progressive over time. The upper motor signs[…][]
