174 Possible Causes for Monoplegia

Show results in: Română

  • Anterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion

    Paracentral vessel occlusion: Monoplegia in the lower limb. Cortical sensory loss in the lower limb. Urinary incontinence.[] Recurrent artery of Heubner Q is an important branch of ACA and its involvement causes faciobrachial monoplegia .[] Overview Contralateral monoplegia with mild upper-extremity involvement is an unusual condition classically described as occurring when ischemia involves the anterior cerebral[]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Three infants presented at 3, 15, and 21 days respectively, with acute monoplegia consistent with brachial-plexus neuropathy.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Abstract It has been suggested that physical trauma, involving the cervical spinal cord or the brain, and psychological stress may precede MS onset or may influence the disease course, although this hypothesis has mainly come from anecdotal case reports or small uncontrolled or controlled studies. So far there are[…][]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Abstract A few epidemiologic studies have suggested an association of agricultural work and pesticides exposure with a severe degenerative disease of the motor neurons, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), though conflicting results have also been provided. We investigated through a population-based case-control[…][]

  • Spinal Cord Neoplasm

    Int J Obstet Anesth. 2010 Jan;19(1):91-3. doi: 10.1016/j.ijoa.2009.02.015. Epub 2009 Aug 22. Author information 1 Department of Anesthesiology, Division of Obstetric Anesthesiology, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. Abstract We report a case of an asymptomatic spinal cord neoplasm detected[…][]

  • Herniated Disc

    The majority of herniated discs occur in the lumbar region of the lower back, usually due to age-related degeneration. Most of the spinal disc herniations are painful as they impinge upon the spinal nerve which comes out through the vertebral column. Sometimes they present with no symptoms at all and may be[…][]

  • Sciatic Neuropathy

    Abstract Lower-extremity trauma is an uncommon but reported cause of sciatic nerve injury in children and adolescents. Failure to identify sciatic neuropathy after traumatic injury to the lower extremity may lead to the delayed institution of neuropathic pharmacotherapy, electrodiagnostic testing, physical[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Spinal neurodegeneration is an important determinant of disability progression in patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. Advanced imaging techniques, such as single-voxel (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy and q-space imaging, have increased pathological specificity for neurodegeneration, but are[…][]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    BACKGROUND: Perhaps the most disabling condition seen in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) is spasticity. Spasticity is characterized as hyperreflexia and hypertonicity as a result of damage to the supraspinal tracts in the aftermath of SCI. Intrathecal baclofen (ITB) is the mainstay therapy for spasticity[…][]

  • Transverse Myelitis

    Transverse myelitis is a focal inflammatory disorder of the spinal cord which may arise due to different etiologies. Transverse myelitis may be idiopathic or related/secondary to other diseases including infections, connective tissue disorders and other autoimmune diseases. It may be also associated with optic neuritis[…][]
