    […] involvement (5).There may be marked nerve hypertrophy.[path.upmc.edu] […] involvement. 7 There may be marked nerve hypertrophy.[qjmed.oxfordjournals.org] The cardinal neurological manifestations of the disease include a demyelinating neuropathy, pes cavus, cerebellar ataxia, sensorineural deafness, anosmia and cranial nerve[path.upmc.edu]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 2

    hypertrophy may become a problem, particularly in older people with the mild form.[patient.info] […] glycosaminoglycan excretion.

  • Klatskin Tumor

    Neuroma formation is thought to be precipitated by posttraumatic nerve cell growth after surgery and such nerve hypertrophy in response to injury is similar to that seen with[tropicalgastro.com] It is a non-neoplastic disorganized proliferation of axons, Schwann cells, and perineurial cells in a fibrocollagenous stroma and affects nerves that are encased in Schwann[tropicalgastro.com]

  • Leprosy

    Different pathogenetic mechanisms behind neuropathic pain in leprosy have been suggested, such as inflammatory response on peripheral nerves (neuritis), nerve hypertrophy,[bodyinmind.org]

  • Lymphatic Malformation

    […] facial nerve hypertrophy and growth acceleration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This study provides informative in vivo data to help understand facial nerve characteristics in young patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The significantly greater width of the facial nerve trunk in LM patients older than 1 year than those younger than 1 year suggests that the age of 1 may be a threshold for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ophthalmoplegic Migraine

    This mass is considered to result from nerve hypertrophy caused by repeated demyelination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present 3 patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) with extensive and diffuse hypertrophy of the nerve roots and peripheral nerves[scinapse.io] Oculomotor ophthalmoplegic migraine (O-OPM) occurs in many children, and in some cases MRI shows a small mass in the root exit zone (REZ) of the oculomotor nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
