315 Possible Causes for Nerve Hypertrophy

  • Refsum Disease

    […] 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]

  • Urinary Stress Incontinence

    Some causes for obstruction: Benign prostatic hypertrophy Strictures that cause narrowing of the urethra Diseases that affect the nerves associated with urinary sphincter[uchospitals.edu]

  • Hay Fever

    Cranial nerve examination should be done to exclude rare tumours. [ 6 ] Differential diagnosis Non-allergic rhinitis. Infective rhinitis. Nasal polyps. Sinusitis.[patient.info] Adenoidal hypertrophy. Cystic fibrosis . Kartagener's syndrome .[patient.info] Adenoidal hypertrophy. Cystic fibrosis. Kartagener's syndrome. Systemic lupus erythematosus and granulomatous conditions - eg, Wegener's granulomatosis and sarcoidosis.[patient.info]

  • Allergic Rhinitis

  • Osteoarthritis

    Hypertrophy and hyperplasia of the ligamenta flava, which are posterior to the spinal cord, often compress the posterior canal, causing lumbar spinal stenosis.[merckmanuals.com] Hypertrophy and hyperplasia of the ligamenta flava, which are posterior to the spinal cord, often compress the posterior canal, causing lumbar spinal stenosis .[merckmanuals.com] In contrast, the anterior and posterior nerve roots, ganglia, and common spinal nerve are relatively well protected in the intervertebral foramina, where they occupy only[merckmanuals.com]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    Hemodynamic -- obstruction to blood flow Obstruction of the flow of blood out of the left ventricle due to hypertrophy of the ventricular subaorta.[alternativehealing.org] III .Neurally mediated pneumogastric nerve reaction (usually related to emotional stress) over sensitivity of the nerve that controls the blood pressure IV.[alternativehealing.org]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Hypertrophy of the nerve roots can cause dysaesthesia, cauda equina syndrome and symptoms of lumbar stenosis, which sometimes require surgery [ 1 ].[omicsgroup.org] Patients can also develop autonomic dysfunction and a few have cranial nerve involvement.[omicsgroup.org]

  • Median Neuropathy

    One patient showed significant median nerve hypertrophy on ultrasonography and was diagnosed with neurolymphomatosis following the detection of malignant lymphoma during a[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The dominant arm is most likely to be affected, particularly if the individual is heavily muscled (muscle hypertrophy).[clinicalgate.com] Pronator syndrome is rare but is the second most common cause of medial nerve compression after carpal tunnel syndrome.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    A hypertrophied ST is an extremely rare cause for TTS, and we report perhaps a first case of bilateral TTS in a young adult due to bilateral symmetrical hypertrophied ST which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS) is defined as the entrapment of the posterior tibial nerve in the tarsal tunnel of the ankle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The fascia of the abductor hallucis helps form this portal and hypertrophy of this muscle must put greater pressure on the nerve.[podiatrytoday.com]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

    Neuropathy may be compressive, such as from a hypertrophied muscle, aberrant bone or bone formation, or tumor.[mhmedical.com] It may exist alone or in combination with popliteal vein and/or tibial nerve compression as part of popliteal entrapment syndrome.[bjsm.bmj.com] […] of the abductor hallucis can cause entrapment Al says -Lateral plantar nerve is more proximal.[quizlet.com]
