621 Possible Causes for Hemiplegia, Paralysis, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    motor neuropathy.[] […] features of acute intermittent porphyria i.e. acute abdomen, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and rapidly progressing acute motor neuropathy leading to respiratory and bulbar paralysis[] […] convulsions) and can lead to severe complications such as motor paralysis.[]

  • 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[] […] and/or recurrent life-threatening attacks with severe abdominal pain, peripheral and autonomic neuropathy, neuropsychiatric manifestations, cutaneous lesions and possibly paralysis[] 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.[]

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

  • West Nile Encephalitis

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

  • Polyneuropathy

    Episodic ataxia and hemiplegia caused by the 8993T- C mitochondrial DNA mutation. J Med Genet. 2007 Dec;44(12):797-9.[] […] neuron disease …peripheral nerves (peripheral neuropathies, or polyneuropathies) can produce symptoms similar to the motor neuron diseases.[] Abstract Bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis (BDP) manifests as respiratory muscle weakness, and its association with critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) was rarely reported[]

  • 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.[] neuropathy and sometimes motor neuron disease, neuropsychiatric presentations, cardiac presentations (including electrical conduction delays and dilated cardiomyopathy),[] Unilateral and bilateral facial paralysis may occur in up to 11% of patients with Lyme disease.[]

  • 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[] 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[] The focus of the Periodic Paralysis, Myotonia, and Episodic Ataxia Clinic is to provide clinical services for patients with these neurologic channelopathies. Dr.[]

  • 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[] motor neuropathy, aseptic meningitis, and cranial polyneuropathy. [2] Among these, vestibulocochlear symptoms such as vertigo, hearing loss, and tinnitus most commonly occur[] Three cases of herpes zoster oticus illustrate the manifestations of this relatively uncommon cause of facial paralysis.[]

  • 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).[] These measures produced recovery from the respiratory muscle paralysis.[] ; peripheral nervous system pathology is visible by the lack of motor response to peripheral nerve stimulation.[]

  • Brown-Sequard Syndrome

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