17 Possible Causes for Monoplegia, Rapid Progression to Disability

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Although progression is more rapid, age-related disability milestones are identical to relapsing-onset disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A previous analysis of the British Columbia MS database challenged the view that disability progression is rapid in PPMS, but identified few predictors of disease progression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , for which prognosis is considered as poor due to the relatively rapid development of advanced disability as compared with RRMS.[globenewswire.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    Rapid recognition and response is essential to reduce the risk of disability and death. 4,8,10 As the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) points[journals.lww.com] […] similar episodes, and absence of nonspecific symptoms such as gastrointestinal distress, chest pain, or shortness of breath. 1 No one can predict which TIAs are likely to progress[journals.lww.com]

  • 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[jped.elsevier.es] […] one third remain severely disabled Poor prognostic indicators rapid progression of symptoms back pain spinal shock absent central conduction on somatosensory evoked potential[lifeinthefastlane.com] Progression ; Transverse myelitis (TM) The progression is rapid • time to maximal disability is more than 4 hr and fewer than 21 days.

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    progression of disability, more frequent relapses, and worse postrelapse recoveries.[dx.doi.org] Multiple Sclerosis have a higher incidence of spinal cord lesion and exhibit much more rapid development of disability than those with other forms of the disease 1 in every[themcfox.com] Relapses are associated with more rapid disability progression in SPMS but tend to occur in those at younger ages (younger than 55 years) and earlier in the disease course[doi.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    One woman with ALS received intracranial injection of adult olfactory ensheathing glia (OEG) transplantation and her disease progressed at a more rapid rate after the procedure[doi.org] […] and she suffered disabling side‐effects ( Chew 2007 ).[doi.org]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Illustrations of some less known forms of peripheral neuritis, especially alcoholic monoplegia and diabetic neuritis. Br Med J. 1890;1:1419 [ Links ] 7 Leyden E.[scielo.br] For example, patients with GBS present with a definite date of onset followed by rapid progression of impairment and disability.[neurology.org] Symptom onset and tempo often correlate because they both represent the pace of disease progression.[neurology.org]

  • Spinal Demyelination

    These included monoplegia, paraplegia, quadriplegia and hemiplegia, and could be combined with peripheral nerve injury.[nrronline.org] progression to disability within several days to weeks, culminating in the need for hospital admission and aggressive therapy for an acute attack. 5 Among fulminant demyelinating[nature.com] However, the higher incidence of spinal cord lesions often found in primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) does contribute to a more rapid development of disability[healthcentral.com]

  • Paraparesis

    Monoparesis (monoplegia) occurs subsequent to unilateral T2-S1 lesions. Trauma and neoplasia are the most common spinal cord diseases affecting cats.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Age of onset at 50 years or older and high HTLV-1 proviral load are associated with a more rapid progression to a severe disability. [4] Patients may survive for 10-40 years[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hematomyelia

    The type of paralysis may be monoplegia, hemiplegia, or paraplegia. Disturbance of the sensory functions may give rise to hyperesthesia, anesthesia, paresthesia, etc.[henriettes-herb.com] Dunn Edward J, Dvorak Jiri, Ono Keiro World Scientific, ٢١‏/٠٩‏/١٩٩٨ - 784 من الصفحات With rapid advances in medical technology and progress in medicine during the last 27[books.google.com] […] years, severe disability or sustained neck-shoulder-arm pain secondary to cervical spondylosis can be detected much earlier.[books.google.com]

  • Myelitis

    RESULTS: Nine children had bilateral and asymmetric flaccid myelitis of the upper limbs, 1 had upper limb monoplegia, and 1 presented with hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] one third remain severely disabled Poor prognostic indicators rapid progression of symptoms back pain spinal shock absent central conduction on somatosensory evoked potential[lifeinthefastlane.com] Progression ; Transverse myelitis (TM) The progression is rapid • time to maximal disability is more than 4 hr and fewer than 21 days.
