350 Possible Causes for Inability to Supinate Forearm, Monoplegia

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Anesthesiologists attending to the patient in PACU noticed an inability of the patient to lift his right arm, abduct the shoulder, flex or supinate the forearm.[] Three infants presented at 3, 15, and 21 days respectively, with acute monoplegia consistent with brachial-plexus neuropathy.[]

  • Anterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion

    Paracentral vessel occlusion: Monoplegia in the lower limb. Cortical sensory loss in the lower limb. Urinary incontinence.[] A case of anterior cerebral artery A1 segment hypoplasia syndrome presenting with right lower limb monoplegia, abulia, and urinary incontinence.[] Overview Contralateral monoplegia with mild upper-extremity involvement is an unusual condition classically described as occurring when ischemia involves the anterior cerebral[]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Peripheral neuropathy, often shortened to neuropathy, is a general term describing disease affecting the peripheral nerves, meaning nerves beyond the brain and spinal cord. Damage to peripheral nerves may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function depending on which nerves are affected; in other words,[…][]

  • Migraine

    Abstract Earlier studies have raised the issue that Asians have a much lower migraine prevalence than Westerners. This article reviews the recent epidemiologic studies of headache in Asia using International Headache Society (IHS) classification criteria. Except for the Korean study and the first Hong Kong study[…][]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a brief episode of neurological dysfunction caused by loss of blood flow (ischemia) in the brain, spinal cord, or retina, without tissue death (infarction). TIAs have the same underlying mechanism as ischemic strokes. Both are caused by a disruption in blood flow to the brain, or[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) is one of the subtypes of multiple sclerosis (MS) distinguished by a slow and irreversible course of myelopathy and overall neurological decline. Contrary to other MS forms, significant female predilection is not observed. Spastic paraparesis and progressive ataxia are[…][]

  • Transverse Myelitis

    A word of caution is in order, as a thorough physical examination of a patient who complains of monoplegia may reveal inconspicuous weakness of an additional limb, so the[] A localized deficit, such as facial palsy ( Table 4 ) 36 or monoplegia ( Table 5 ), 3 tends to have a smaller list of etiologies, while a more diffuse deficit, e.g ., paraplegia[]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) is a rare subtype of motor neuron disease (MND) that affects only the lower motor neurons. PMA is thought to account for around 4% of all MND cases. This is in contrast to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the most common form of MND, which affects both the upper and[…][]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    A consensus meeting was held to determine the best use and interpretation of electrophysiological data in the diagnosis of ALS. The utility of needle EMG and nerve conduction studies was affirmed. It is recommended that electrophysiological evidence for chronic neurogenic change should be taken as equivalent to[…][]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Neoplasms and reactivation of latent viruses have been observed in individuals taking fingolimod. Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), a rare neuroendocrine skin cancer, is associated with immunosuppression and can be triggered by the oncogenic Merkel cell polyoma virus (MCPyV). We report a case of a 61-year-old man with[…][]
