1,430 Possible Causes for Malabsorption Syndrome, Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Autonomic Neuropathy

    A basic understanding of the nervous system and peripheral neuropathies, chart findings to support a neuropathy, and ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM categorization of peripheral neuropathies[aapc.com] Peripheral Neuropathy Definition The term peripheral neuropathy encompasses a wide range of disorders in which the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord—peripheral nerves—have[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] markers in the assessment of diabetic peripheral and cardiac autonomic neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    Less common causes of decreased B12 absorption include chronic pancreatitis, malabsorption syndromes, certain medications, and, very rarely, increased metabolism of B12 through[bodyandhealth.canada.com] Pernicious Anemia Macrocytic anemia, glossitis, peripheral neuropathy, weakness, hyperreflexia, ataxia, and other neurological manifestations characterize classical vitamin[clinlabnavigator.com] Cobalamin deficiency–related neurological impairment can vary in clinical presentation, including acute combined system degeneration, peripheral neuropathy, and psychosis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Celiac Disease

    Both diseases may present the intestinal malabsorption syndrome and similar clinical manifestations that contribute to difficulties with clinical distinction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] manifestations, thus suggesting that CD should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy in children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include the typical malabsorption syndrome (classic symptoms) and a spectrum of symptoms potentially affecting any organ or body system (nonclassic symptoms).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Short Bowel Syndrome

    As a result, the main symptoms are watery diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome, chronic malnutrition, and death, if the patient is not properly treated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Vitamin B6 deficiency can cause peripheral neuropathies and seizures. Peripheral neuropathy can be a feature of B12 deficiency also.[emedicine.medscape.com] Vitamin B6 deficiency - peripheral neuropathies (also a feature of B12 deficiency) and seizures. Vitamin D depletion - poor growth, bowed extremities.[patient.info]

  • Primary Amyloidosis

    Deposition in viscera results in restrictive cardiomyopathy, nephrotic range proteinuria, demyelinating peripheral neuropathy, hepatomegaly and malabsorption syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral neuropathy in primary (AL) amyloidosis is usually lower-limb predominant, length-dependent, symmetrical, and affects small (pain and autonomic) fibers, as much[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] syndrome.[bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com]

  • Amyloidosis

    Primary amyloidosis can lead to conditions that include: Carpal tunnel syndrome Heart muscle damage ( cardiomyopathy ) leading to congestive heart failure Intestinal malabsorption[medlineplus.gov] Transthyretin amyloidosis patients develop length-dependent peripheral neuropathy, autonomic dysfunction, and restrictive cardiomyopathy associated with deposition of amyloid[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] neuropathy, unexplained hepatomegaly or diarrhea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Systemic Scleroderma

    Bone loss seems to be associated with prolonged disease duration, severe joint involvement, malabsorption syndrome and immunological status.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral neuropathy: a complication of systemic sclerosis.

    Katz, Malabsorption syndrome with infiltration of the intestinal wall by extracellular monoclonal macroglobulin, The American Journal of Medicine, 54, 6, (811), (1973).[doi.org] Peripheral neuropathy occurs in nearly half of patients with this condition, and hyperviscosity-related nervous system disorders are encountered in up to a third.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Complications Complications of Waldenström macroglobulinemia include the following: Visual disturbances secondary to hyperviscosity syndrome Diarrhea and malabsorption secondary[emedicine.medscape.com]
