  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Both the patients were presented with seizures and PRES on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Unexplained abdominal pain occurred before the onset of seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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] motor neuropathy.[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    Abstract Seizures may occur in acute intermittent porphyria or other hepatic porphyrias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Hereditary Coproporphyria

    We have reported a case of normeperidine-induced seizures in a patient with hereditary coproporphyria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral neuropathies are predominantly motor neuropathies and can mimic Guillain-Barré syndrome.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] attacks may include body pain, nausea and vomiting, increased heart rate ( tachycardia ), and high blood pressure. [2] Less common symptoms include seizures, skin lesions, and paralysis[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • West Nile Encephalitis

    Occipital lobe seizures, often mimicking other primary seizure types due to extra-occipital spread, is uncommon in adults and especially so from an infectious origin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Variegate Porphyria

    We delineate a syndrome principally characterized by growth retardation, developmental delay, epileptic seizures, photosensitivity and an abnormal porphyrin excretion pattern[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recovery from severe paralysis is generally slow.[sema4genomics.com] Respiratory paralysis 9-20 Preceded by progressive peripheral motor neuropathy and paresis.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Lyme Disease

    We report Lyme disease in a young man from north India who presented with progressive diminution of vision, severe headache, quadriparesis, seizures, dermatological and pulmonary[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Tick Paralysis

  • Porphyria

    Then, she had episodes of seizure and confusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute attacks occur mainly in adults and comprise severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, autonomic disturbance, central nervous system involvement and peripheral motor neuropathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other symptoms include: Muscle pain Muscle weakness or paralysis Numbness or tingling Pain in the arms or legs Pain in the back Personality changes Attacks can sometimes be[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    'Within a week I had a massive seizure and I was in critical care with a tube down my throat.[dailymail.co.uk] 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]

  • Lead Poisoning

    We report the case of a 23-month-old male with hypotonia, developmental delay, and complex seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Can cause peripheral motor neuropathy (i.e., wrist drop). [Dsouza, 2009] There is no “safe” lead level – we are not supposed to have lead in our bodies.[pedemmorsels.com] Its unique pathognomonic, notably a severe colic succeeded by paralysis and other central nervous system dysfunction, makes it possible to identify the disease with certainty[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
