1,310 Possible Causes for Hemiparesis, Poor Outcome, Weakness

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    A 73-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital for sudden headache and subsequent left hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] poor outcome of patient with aSAH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After onset, he presented with complete weakness of both legs. The patient was diagnosed as spontaneous SAH and IVH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    During the course of illness, the patient had an acute cerebral hemorrhage, which manifested with hemiparesis, dysarthria, and pathologic crying.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Gait instability and left-side weakness developed abruptly 2 weeks later; brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed a hematoma over the right parietal-occipital lobe.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We used multiple logistic regression analysis to show that lower serum uric acid levels independently predicted poor functional outcomes (mRS 2) at 1 year after ischemic stroke[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    SSEH presenting as a hemiparesis is less common and in such situations, it can be mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our case had a poor outcome, unlike the majority of previously reported cases. Copyright 2018 National Stroke Association. Published by Elsevier Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] weakness; there were two patients with stroke of undetermined etiology and they had uniform finger weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome

    A 42-year-old woman, a diagnosed case of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), developed severe headache followed by left hemiparesis and cortical blindness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infarction on baseline imaging predicted poor outcome. Prior serotonergic antidepressant use predicted clinical and angiographic worsening but not poor outcome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had transient and crescendo neurologic events in the first 3 postoperative weeks that culminated in right hand weakness and paresthesia, despite dual antiplatelet therapy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    Despite chemotherapy, the lesion increased in volume, which led to local pain and right hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They are responsible for rapidly declining neurological status and eventual poor outcome in many patients with LM.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A patient with uvular cancer presented with lower limb weakness and paresthesiae, headache, neck stiffness and multiple cranial palsies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    Other symptoms pointing at compromise of the central nervous system are facial paralysis, hemiparesis, and seizures.[symptoma.com] Around 10% of cases are atypical HUS (aHUS), a rare disease with poor outcomes caused by uncontrolled activation of the alternative complement pathway.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They may include: Anemia, causing tiredness, muscle weakness, and fatigue Low platelets in blood, which could lead to uncontrolled and abnormal bleeding Liver dysfunction,[dovemed.com]

  • Glioblastoma Multiforme

    After surgery there was a significant neurological improvement, and 30 months after resection the child is alive, with mild hemiparesis and no signs of recurrence on follow-up[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We compared characteristics between weak and strong galectin-1 expression, and only the expression level of galectin-3 showed a correlation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One of the reasons why such a poor outcome is expected is that GBM is often missed in its initial stages due to a nonspecific symptomatology and physicians often turn their[symptoma.com]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    She was treated with anticoagulation therapy and her hemiparesis improved within 3 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Study population: Patients are eligible if they have a radiologically proven CVT, a high probability of poor outcome (defined by presence of one or more of the following risk[clinicaltrials.gov] Not surprisingly coma, hemorrhagic venous infarcts and co-existing malignancy correlate with poor outcome 2 .[radiopaedia.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    A severe and sudden left-sided sensorimotor hemiparesis occurred 1 year later.[doi.org] […] both in the experimental group and in the control group had poor outcomes.[dx.doi.org] […] motor weakness had recovered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lyme Disease

    One of these two patients was a child with sudden hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fibromyalgia The outcome of treating fibromyalgia secondary to Lyme disease with nonantibiotic regimens has been poor.[web.archive.org] The physical examination showed widespread weakness, atrophy, fasciculation, and brisk reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
