    Shortly after HSCT the patient developed progressive polyneuropathy of the lower legs and hypoesthesia. Five months later a severe dementia followed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission, the patient exhibited bifacial, extremity weakness, ataxia, impaired sensation, and areflexia. Electrophysiology and nerve biopsy suggested demyelination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Minor side effects are common and include headache, malaise, fatigue, and fever.[dx.doi.org]

  • Heavy Metal Poisoning

    Local villagers ate the fish and began to exhibit signs of neurologic damage, such as visual loss, extremity numbness, hearing loss, and ataxia.[slideshare.net] In addition, non-inflammatory degenerative disease of the sensorimotor nerves (sensorimotor polyneuropathy) may advance to progressive deterioration (atrophy).[rarediseases.org] It includes brassfounder's fever (brass chill, brazier's chill) and spelter's fever (zinc chill, zinc fume fever). heavy metal one with a high specific gravity, usually defined[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
