621 Possible Causes for Hemiplegia, Paralysis, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    motor neuropathy.[bestpractice.bmj.com] […] features of acute intermittent porphyria i.e. acute abdomen, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and rapidly progressing acute motor neuropathy leading to respiratory and bulbar paralysis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] convulsions) and can lead to severe complications such as motor paralysis.[orpha.net]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    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] […] and/or recurrent life-threatening attacks with severe abdominal pain, peripheral and autonomic neuropathy, neuropsychiatric manifestations, cutaneous lesions and possibly paralysis[clinicaladvisor.com] They can, in some cases, cause motor paralysis. The disease is often progressive. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only.[orpha.net]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    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] Our certified mentors are people living with or impacted by paralysis.[christopherreeve.org] In this type, the covering around peripheral nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN).[childrenshospital.org]

  • West Nile Encephalitis

    Flaccid paralysis may be prolonged/permanent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract West Nile encephalitis (WNE) presents clinically as aseptic meningitis, meningoencephalitis, encephalitis, or acute flaccid paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nile virus (WNV) has spread rapidly across the United States since 1999, causing epidemics of neurologic illnesses including meningitis, encephalitis, and acute flaccid paralysis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyneuropathy

    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] Abstract Bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis (BDP) manifests as respiratory muscle weakness, and its association with critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) was rarely reported[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lyme Disease

    Acute hemiplegia associated with cat-scratch disease. Braz J Infect Dis 2004; 8: 263-266. [ Links ] 41. Podsiadly E, Chmielewski T, Tylewska-Wierzbanowska S.[doi.org] neuropathy and sometimes motor neuron disease, neuropsychiatric presentations, cardiac presentations (including electrical conduction delays and dilated cardiomyopathy),[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unilateral and bilateral facial paralysis may occur in up to 11% of patients with Lyme disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Episodic Ataxia

    Our data show that a heterozygous mutation in EAAT1 can lead to decreased glutamate uptake, which can contribute to neuronal hyperexcitability to cause seizures, hemiplegia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] SCA1, 2, 3, and 4 may also involve partial paralysis of the eyes, slow eye movements, poor motor coordination, dementia, peripheral neuropathy ( pain, numbness, or tingling[encyclopedia.com] The focus of the Periodic Paralysis, Myotonia, and Episodic Ataxia Clinic is to provide clinical services for patients with these neurologic channelopathies.

  • Herpes Zoster Oticus

    . 208 5 Herpes zoster ophthalmicus and delayed ipsilateral cerebral infarction, Neurology, 1983, vol. 33 (pg. 1428 - 32 ) 6 Herpes zoster ophthalmicus with contralateral hemiplegia[academic.oup.com] motor neuropathy, aseptic meningitis, and cranial polyneuropathy. [2] Among these, vestibulocochlear symptoms such as vertigo, hearing loss, and tinnitus most commonly occur[journals.lww.com] Three cases of herpes zoster oticus illustrate the manifestations of this relatively uncommon cause of facial paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    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] These measures produced recovery from the respiratory muscle paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ; peripheral nervous system pathology is visible by the lack of motor response to peripheral nerve stimulation.[guillain-barre.co.uk]

  • Brown-Sequard Syndrome

    Spine surgeons performing this procedure should therefore consider Brown-Sequard syndrome if a patient displays signs of postoperative hemiplegia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] neuropathy.[ninds.nih.gov] (Brown-Sequard disease, Brown-Sequard's paralysis, Brown-Sequard's syndrome), spinale verlamming (Brown-Sequard disease, Brown-Sequard's paralysis, Brown-Sequard's syndrome[web.archive.org]
