Possible Causes for Lower Motor Neurone Lesion in USA

  • Diabetic Amyotrophy
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

    Diabetic amyotrophy is a complication of diabetes mellitus. Affected individuals suffer from painful, progressive damage to the lumbosacral plexus and consequent neurological deficits. Initially, DA manifests in form of severe, unilateral pain in buttocks, hips, and thighs. Similar symptoms subsequently affect the…[1]

  • Hypercalcemia
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

    Hypercalcemia is the presence of an abnormally high concentration of calcium in the blood. The symptoms and signs of hypercalcemia are now more often mild and general rather than severe renal and bone problems seen years ago:GENERAL -symptoms such as malaise and depression RENAL- renal colic from stones,…[2]

  • Bulbar Poliomyelitis
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

    Bulbar poliomyelitis is a specific type of an extremely rare viral paralytic disease in which the typical findings of acute flaccid paralysis are accompanied by bulbar symptoms - dysphagia, dysphonia, nasal regurgitation, as well as vascular and respiratory impairment in severe cases. The diagnosis rests on clinical…[3]

  • Poliomyelitis
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

    Poliomyelitis is an infectious disease caused by poliovirus, a human enterovirus belonging to the family Picornaviridae. Poliomyelitis shows a wide range of possible clinical scenarios. In the majority of them (around 95%), the disease is asymptomatic or shows flu-like symptoms which do not represent a major concern for…[4]

  • Spinal Paralytic Poliomyelitis
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion
  • Meningomyelocele
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

    Meningomyelocele is a neural tube defect, presenting as a protrusion of the spinal cord and meninges, due to incomplete closure of the neural tube. It represents one of the most common birth defects. Meningomyelocele is often associated with type II Arnold-Chiari malformation. Meningomyelocele is a congenital anomaly…[5]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuritis
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion
  • Postpoliomyelitis Syndrome
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

    Post-polio syndrome (PPS, or post-poliomyelitis syndrome or post-polio sequelae) is a condition that affects approximately 25 to 40 percent of people who have previously survived an acute attack of poliomyelitis —a viral infection of the nervous system—after the initial infection. Typically the symptoms appear 15 to…[6]

  • Motor Neuron Disease
    Lower Motor Neurone Lesion

    Several conditions constitute the group of motor neuron diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and cause progressive degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons, depending on the subtype. Their cause remains unknown and they are slightly more frequently encountered in males. Clinical presentation…[7]

  • Dementia
    Motor Restlessness

    Dementia is a loss of cognitive abilities severe enough to interfere with normal activities of daily living. It is most common in elderly individuals, with advancing age being the strongest risk factor. The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer disease (AD), but there are numerous other known causes. Most types…[8]
