1,264 Possible Causes for Paraparesis, Paraplegia

  • Meningitis

    Without early surgery, patients can develop severe kyphosis leading to respiratory insufficiency, painful costopelvic impingement and paraplegia.[] Clnicopathologic Conference Anti-N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) Receptor Encephalitis NEJM 379:870-878, CASE 27-2018, 2018 A Patient With Multiple Cranial Nerve Palsies and Areflexic Paraparesis[] We report a case of IgG4-related sclerosing pachymeningitis causing paraplegia.[]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    Spinal tuberculosis leading to paraplegia is uncommon in pregnancy and is a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.[] Due to appearance paraparesis secondary to vertebral destruction, we removed the abscess and infected bone and reconstruction was carried out with fibular allograft anteriorly[] The patient presented with systemic tuberculosis symptoms and signs, and progressive paraparesis.[]

  • Hematomyelia

    We present a case of a 51-year-old man who presented acute onset epigastric pain, paraplegia, and sensory loss below his nipples.[] We report case of a 7-year-old hemophilic boy who presented with flaccid paraparesis resulting from thoracic hematomyelia.[] The clinical entities of hematomyelia were sudden onset of pain, repidly developing pyramidal signs and paraplegia.[]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Five patients had developed significant neurological morbidities such as paraplegia before transplantation.[] Clinical features were childhood-onset slowly progressive spastic paraparesis, cerebellar ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, and in 2 patients, optic atrophy as well as vertical[] Clinical findings Abdominal colic, constipation, fever, leukocytosis, postural hypotension, peripheral neuritis, polyneuropathy, paraplegia, urinary retention, respiratory[]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    Congenital spinal extradural cysts are rare and may be the cause of acute paraplegia. In their clinical features they closely resemble acute transverse myelitis.[] The diagnosis was based on the development of motor weakness, paraparesis and bladder dysfunction, spinal magnetic resonance imaging findings and detection of anti-varicella[] Her course was characterized by paraplegia, sensory loss, hyperesthesia, and incontinence of urine and feces. All patients, except ours, recovered fully from ATM.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    The authors suggest that PLP1 testing might be considered in the evaluation of women with spastic paraparesis, cognitive decline and WM changes.[] Early symptoms may include numbness and/or paresthesia, mono- or paraparesis, double vision, optic neuritis, ataxia, and bladder control problems.[] […] societies: Alpha Omega Alpha , American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine , American Paraplegia[]

  • Syringomyelia

    A 40-year-old man with complete paraplegia since 1991 as a consequence of a Th4 vertebral fracture showed a great posttraumatic syringomyelia that extended up to C2 vertebral[] We describe a 27-year-old female with paraparesis secondary to a massive and tethered cystic dilatation of the VT mimicking syringomyelia.[] […] for rapid progression of curve; - left thoracic scoliosis is common; - treatment of the scoliosis without recognition of syringomyelia and Chiari malformation can lead to paraplegia[]

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

    A case of spinal epidural abscess has been presented with sinus tract formation at L4-L5 level, of pyogenic aetiology that progressed to paraplegia over the course of the[] The authors present a case of a premature twin neonate who developed an epidural abscess with complete paraparesis after coagulase-negative Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteremia[] […] symptom onset (four were in the acute stage and four each in the subacute and chronic stages) and at different levels of neurologic deficit severity, ranging from back pain to paraplegia[]

  • Vertebral Osteomyelitis

    We report a 69-year-old man who presented with chronic back pain and paraparesis.[] The patient presented with acute urinary retention and flaccid paraplegia.[] He had progressive paraparesis, bilateral leg paresthesia, and sphincter compromise.[]

  • Cholesterol Embolism

    […] one eye (known as amaurosis fugax ). [3] Emboli to the eye can be seen by ophthalmoscopy and are known as plaques of Hollenhorst . [4] Emboli to the spinal cord may cause paraparesis[] Other findings may include mental status changes (confusion or delirium), ischemic stroke, paraplegia, and/or Hollenhorst plaques in the retinal arteries.[] Those who survive may be left with chronic renal insufficiency requiring hemodialysis, [ 8 ] stroke resulting in paraplegia, unstable angina, amputation of the affected extremity[]
