42 Possible Causes for Flaccid Paralysis, Lower and Upper Limbs Affected, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    A characteristic finding is albuminocytological dissociation in the cerebrospinal fluid, and the clinical presentation is typically an ascending flaccid paralysis with loss[doi.org] Approximately 2/3 of patients with ALS show the spinal form of the disease (limb injuries) characterised by weakness and muscular loss in lower and upper limbs.[icm-institute.org] […] in children, called acute flaccid myelitis.[brainandlife.org]

  • Enterovirus Infection

    The incidence of acute flaccid paralysis has been on a declining trend with the global efforts on eradication of polio virus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Among these patients, 140 (21.1%) had EV71 isolated, and 150 (22.6%) had myoclonic jerk.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] lower limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Restless Legs Syndrome

    […] in children, called acute flaccid myelitis.[brainandlife.org] Complying with an irresistible urge to move the affected limbs brings temporary relief. Sleep may become disrupted, resulting in excessive daytime hypersomnolence.[icd9data.com] A disorder characterized by aching or burning sensations in the lower and rarely the upper extremities that occur prior to sleep or may awaken the patient from sleep.[icd10data.com]

  • Enteroviruses

    Incidence of acute flaccid paralysis due the virus decreased 99% between 1998 and 2003.[infectiousdiseaseadvisor.com] Signs of complicated EV71 infections include the following: Myoclonic jerks, particularly in sleep Urinary retention Ataxia, weakness, or any focal neurological signs Hypertension[health.nsw.gov.au] […] muscles involved more than distal muscles and the lower extremities affected more commonly than the upper extremities See Clinical Presentation for more detail.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pyramidal Tract Disorder

    Subacute necrotizing encephalopathy, also called Leigh disease, is a lethal disorder of infancy marked by psychomotor delay, myoclonic jerks, paralyses of eye movements, and[britannica.com] Bilateral Corticospinal disfx spasticity, hyperreflexia, Babinski Anterior Horn Cell Syndrome FDR, LMN Disorder Weakness, flaccid paralysis, atrophy, and fasciculations, reduced[memorize.com] Both upper and lower motor neurons are affected, with decreased motor strength and wasting of the muscles of the face, limbs, and diaphragm.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Juvenile Paralysis Agitans of Hunt

    paralysis of the voluntary muscles. periodic paralysis 1. any of various diseases characterized by episodic flaccid paralysis or muscular weakness. progressive bulbar paralysis[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Hyperkinesias come in many forms, ranging from tremor to chorea to muscle fasciculations to myoclonic jerks.[neupsykey.com] affecting right nondominant side G83.14 Monoplegia of lower limb affecting left nondominant side G83.2 Monoplegia of upper limb Paralysis of upper limb Excludes1: monoplegia[en.wikisource.org]

  • Adult-Onset Cervical Dystonia Type DYT23

    In most affected individuals myoclonic jerks are dramatically but transiently ameliorated by intake of alcohol.[docslide.net] Botulinum toxin B (Myobloc) is a sterile liquid formulation of purified neurotoxin that acts at neuromuscular junctions to produce flaccid paralysis by inhibiting acetylcholine[misc.medscape.com] DYT11 (Myoclonus-Dystonia) Associated with SGCE Gene Mutations As the name suggests, myoclonus-dystonia is characterized by the combination of dystonia and myoclonic jerks[neupsykey.com]

  • Medial Sclerosis

    Myoclonic seizure This type of seizure causes quick movements or sudden jerking of a group of muscles. These seizures tend to occur in clusters.[hopkinsmedicine.org] Although the most common presentation is with an ascending paralysis, rarely, it can begin by affecting cranial muscles.[dartmouth.edu] Imaging Affected medium-sized arteries in the upper and lower limbs have linear low power H&E stained cross section of artery with medial calcific sclerosis calcifications[newmedicalterms.com]
