1,164 Possible Causes for Paralysis, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Lyme Disease

    neuropathy and sometimes motor neuron disease, neuropsychiatric presentations, cardiac presentations (including electrical conduction delays and dilated cardiomyopathy),[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unilateral and bilateral facial paralysis may occur in up to 11% of patients with Lyme disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Traquina, Pediatric Bilateral Facial Paralysis, The Laryngoscope, 108, 4, (519-523), (2009).[doi.org]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    motor neuropathy.[bestpractice.bmj.com] […] features of acute intermittent porphyria i.e. acute abdomen, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and rapidly progressing acute motor neuropathy leading to respiratory and bulbar paralysis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] convulsions) and can lead to severe complications such as motor paralysis.[orpha.net]

  • Tick Paralysis

    Introduction Tick paralysis is an uncommon, noninfectious, neurologic syndrome characterized by acute ataxia progressing to ascending paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In Australia, tick paralysis is caused by the tick Ixodes holocyclus.[en.wikipedia.org] Pathophysiology Tick paralysis primarily affects motor pathways.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    neuropathy (patchy numbness and paresthesias), Proximal motor weakness (usually starting in upper extremities which can progress to include respiratory impairment and death[house.wikia.com] […] and/or recurrent life-threatening attacks with severe abdominal pain, peripheral and autonomic neuropathy, neuropsychiatric manifestations, cutaneous lesions and possibly paralysis[clinicaladvisor.com] They can, in some cases, cause motor paralysis. The disease is often progressive. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only.[orpha.net]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    In this type, the covering around peripheral nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN).[childrenshospital.org] Our certified mentors are people living with or impacted by paralysis.[christopherreeve.org] Electromyography showed peripheral nerve injury (mainly in axon). The patient was diagnosed as having acute motor sensory axonal neuropathy (AMSAN).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Entrapment Neuropathy

    Peripheral neuropathy occurs in 10% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.[spineuniverse.com] The clinical and neurophysiological findings in two cases of spontaneous paralysis of the deep branch of the radial nerve are reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (postoperative) nerve NEC 355.9 Angiospasm 443.9 nerve Atrophy, atrophic nerve - see also Disorder, nerve neuritic (see also Disorder, nerve) 355.9 neurogenic NEC 355.9 paralysis[icd9data.com]

  • West Nile Encephalitis

    Flaccid paralysis may be prolonged/permanent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract West Nile encephalitis (WNE) presents clinically as aseptic meningitis, meningoencephalitis, encephalitis, or acute flaccid paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nile virus (WNV) has spread rapidly across the United States since 1999, causing epidemics of neurologic illnesses including meningitis, encephalitis, and acute flaccid paralysis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hereditary Coproporphyria

    Peripheral neuropathies are predominantly motor neuropathies and can mimic Guillain-Barré syndrome.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] convulsions) and can lead to severe complications such as motor paralysis.[orpha.net] neuropathy (patchy numbness and paresthesias), Proximal motor weakness (usually starting in upper extremities which can progress to include respiratory impairment and death[house.wikia.com]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    OBJECTIVE: Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) presents itself as sensory peripheral neuropathy (SPN) or motor peripheral neuropathy (MPN).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here we report the unexpected finding that the Ad-Lkb1 KO mice develop hindlimb paralysis at mid-age.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Idiopathic small fiber peripheral neuropathy Mixed sensory-motor polyneuropathy Neuropathy (nerve damage), peripheral axonal nerve Neuropathy, peripheral axonal nerve Notalgia[icd9data.com]

  • Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

    neuropathy primarily affecting motor neurons.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] but are not indicated in limb paralysis.[ijdvl.com] neuropathy without conduction block (CB) misdiagnosed as a primary peripheral nerve tumor Background: Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is a rare immune-mediated motor neuropathy[neurology.org]
