630 Possible Causes for Hemiplegia, Muscle Weakness, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    But weakness that increases over several days is also common. Muscle weakness or loss of muscle function (paralysis) affects both sides of the body.[medlineplus.gov] BACKGROUND A rare variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) consists of facial diplegia and paresthesia, but an even more rare association is with facial hemiplegia, similar[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this type, the covering around peripheral nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN).[childrenshospital.org]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    weakness.[symptoma.com] neuropathy (patchy numbness and paresthesias), Proximal motor weakness (usually starting in upper extremities which can progress to include respiratory impairment and death[house.wikia.com] Additional findings that can lead a physician to suspect porphyria include new-onset hypertension in a young patient, proximal muscle weakness, or dark or reddish-brown urine[hematologyandoncology.net]

  • West Nile Encephalitis

    The presence of muscle weakness distinguishes WNE from other encephalitides. Facial nerve palsies present acutely or over the course of a few weeks.[symptoma.com] Muscle weakness may or may not accompany any of these clinical variants. This virus may be transmitted via blood transfusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with WNND can present with muscle weakness that is often assumed to be of neurological origin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyneuropathy

    After eliminating possible factors, septic shock-induced respiratory muscle weakness was suspected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Episodic ataxia and hemiplegia caused by the 8993T- C mitochondrial DNA mutation . J Med Genet. 2007 Dec;44(12):797-9.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] […] neuron disease …peripheral nerves (peripheral neuropathies, or polyneuropathies) can produce symptoms similar to the motor neuron diseases.[britannica.com]

  • Diabetic Amyotrophy

    A 56 year-old man with diabetes mellitus and pain, muscle weakness and wasting in both thighs, of three months duration, had a diagnosis of diabetic amyotrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] side G8112Spastic hemiplegia affecting left dominant side G8113Spastic hemiplegia affecting right nondominant side G8114Spastic hemiplegia affecting left nondominant side[cms.gov] These include: Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy Diabetic Proximal Neuropathy Diabetic Focal Neuropathy Diabetic Proximal Neuropathy is a motor[dovemed.com]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    weakness.[msdmanuals.com] The physical consequences of stroke can vary greatly, but 80% of patients are affected by hemiparesis or hemiplegia (one-sided weakness or paralysis).[pnmedical.com] ; peripheral nervous system pathology is visible by the lack of motor response to peripheral nerve stimulation.[guillain-barre.co.uk]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Neurosurg.[doi.org] Macroglobulinemia with peripheral neuropathy simulating motor neuron disease. Ann Neurol 1981;11: 532-536. [ Links ] 17. Van Schaik IN, Bossuyt PM, Brand A, Vermeulen M.[doi.org]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Her disease was difficult to manage with various immunosuppressants, and the muscle weakness eventually progressed to involve the respiratory muscles, necessitating mechanical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 片側痙攣・片麻痺・てんかん症候群 Hemiconvulsion-hemiplegia-epilepsy syndrome, unknown genetic etiology 片側痙攣・片麻痺・てんかん症候群 遺伝子型不明 1 不要 有 HPS2048 HPS2049 HPS2050 HPS2051 HPS2052 HPS2053 2 不要[cell.brc.riken.jp] Some patients with the syndrome of a multifocal motor neuropathy may have MND rather than, or in addition to, a demyelinating peripheral motor neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    Symptoms, such as back pain, abnormal sensations, muscle weakness, or impaired bladder and bowel control, may be mild or severe.[msdmanuals.com] […] neuron disease, subacute combined degeneration, syringomyelia, spinal cord tumors, cerebral hemisphere disease, peripheral neuropathy and normal pressure hydrocephalus.[necksolutions.com] Substantial compression may block most nerve impulses, causing Severe muscle weakness Numbness Retention of urine Loss of bladder and bowel control If all nerve impulses are[merckmanuals.com]
