  • Meningomyelocele

    Myelomeningocele in the sacral area can produce a lower motor neuron lesion, resulting in detrusor areflexia.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypercalcemia

    Abstract Sarcoidosisis amultisystemic granulomatous disease, potentially affecting any organ system of the body. Calcium metabolism disturbances occur in up to 20% of patients, of which hypercalciuria and asymptomatic hypercalcemia are most common. Ocular sarcoid typically presents with anterior chamber[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuritis

    The occurrence of brachial plexus neuritis during the acute phase of vasculitis is uncommon. We describe a patient with a long history of rhinitis and a recent onset of asthma, who developed purpuric skin lesions, abdominal pain, eosinophilia and brachial neuritis along with evidence of sacral plexus neuropathy. High[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Amyotrophy

    Diabetic amyotrophy is a distinctive form of diabetic neuropathy. It is characterised by a weakness and wasting of proximal muscles of the lower limbs with associated pain. We report a case of an elderly patient with unusual presentation of diabetic amyotrophy. He presented with myoclonic jerks and recurrent falls.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
