2,083 Possible Causes for nerve degeneration

  • Dementia

    So, if we look at "neuro," we know that this refers to the nerves of the nervous system, or basically your brain, and then, "degenerative" or "degeneration" means to decline[khanacademy.org] This is a group of diseases characterized by the breakdown (degeneration) of nerve cells in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, the areas generally associated with[mayoclinic.org] […] to frontotemporal dementia (degeneration of the frontal lobe of the brain).[who.int]

  • Cerebro-Oculo-Facio-Skeletal Syndrome

    The authors report inner ear findings that differ from animal models of primary cochlear neural degeneration and that resemble the pattern of hereditary cochlear nerve degeneration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebro-oculo-facio-skeletal (COFS) syndrome as a human example for accelerated cochlear nerve degeneration. Otol Neurol 2001; 22: 170-177. 12.[indianpediatrics.net] Congenital anomaly of peripheral nerve Congenital anomaly of visual system Congenital degeneration of nervous system Congenital disorder of facial nerve Congenital hypomyelinating[icdlist.com]

  • Constipation

    Myelinated fibers of the pelvic parasympathetic colonic nerve showed obvious vacuolated degeneration under electron-microscopic examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The fibers of the myenteric plexuses showed vacuolated degeneration between the muscularis propria layer under optical microscope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Such a simultaneous neuropathy in both myenteric plexuses and extrinsic extramural nerves has not been documented previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Behçet Disease

    SD-OCT was a useful and non-invasive tool for the detection of retinal nerve degeneration and choroidal changes in patients with Behcet disease even in the absence of ocular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    We report a case of CSS with manifestations that included skin purpura and severe peripheral nerve degeneration in a 56-year-old woman with a recent history of asthma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nerve biopsy showed evidence of marked axonal degeneration along with loss of myelin and minimal inflammation.[neurologyindia.com] Left sural nerve biopsy revealed epineurial extravascular eosinophils and vasculitis associated with axonal degeneration ( Fig ).[hkmj.org]

  • Tick-Borne Encephalitis

    These findings coincide well with neuropathological studies of severe nerve cell degeneration with inflammatory cell infiltrates, neuronophagia and reactive astrocytosis in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bell's Palsy

    Facial nerve degeneration rate (1 - affected/unaffected amplitude of CMAP of muscle 100%) recorded in frontalis (P 0.002) and orbicularis oris (P 0.038) were also smaller[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The presence of monophasic or flat waves with a low facial score strongly suggests nerve degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Nitrofurantoin

    Skin biopsies revealed distinctive morphologic changes with clustered terminal nerve swellings without evidence of nerve fiber degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Results from nerve conduction studies were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Urticarial Vasculitis

    Sural nerve biopsy showed asymmetrical multifocal nerve fiber loss and axon degeneration in nerve fascicles, a picture suggestive of ischemic damage as a likely result of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
