  • Otitis Media

    […] report of Pseudoclavibacter otitis media in a boy with pulmonary and spinal tuberculosis.A 3-year-old boy was referred to our hospital due to prolonged fever and progressive paraplegia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    Without early surgery, patients can develop severe kyphosis leading to respiratory insufficiency, painful costopelvic impingement and paraplegia.[orthoreader.com] We report a case of IgG4-related sclerosing pachymeningitis causing paraplegia.[e-arm.org] Acute complete paraplegia of 8-year-old girl caused by spinal cord infarction following minor trauma complicated with longitudinal signal change of spinal cord.[orthoreader.com]

  • Tuberculosis

    […] nerve roots Pressure from abscess - can produce hip pain if the abscess goes to the psoas muscle Collapse of the vertebral body - can cause cord compression and possible paraplegia[physio-pedia.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease and spastic paraplegia type 2 are allelic X-linked disorders associated with defective myelination of the central nervous system and mutations[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] societies: Alpha Omega Alpha , American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine , American Paraplegia[emedicine.medscape.com] Medicine Florian P Thomas, MD, MA, PhD, Drmed is a member of the following medical societies: American Academy of Neurology , American Neurological Association , American Paraplegia[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The most common form of autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraplegia is caused by mutations in the SPG11/KIAA1840 gene on chromosome 15q.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pathogenic mutations in the KIF5A-SPG10 gene, encoding the kinesin HC5A, can be associated with autosomal dominant hereditary spastic paraplegia (ADHSP).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Alsin 2q33.2 Select ALS 3 ALS3 Unknown 18q21 Select ALS 4 SETX Senataxin 9q34.13 Select ALS 5 SPG11 spastic paraplegia 11 (autosomal recessive) 15q14 Select ALS 6 FUS fusion[alsod.iop.kcl.ac.uk]

  • Neuroblastoma

    We report on the case of a 23-day-old neonate who was admitted to our institution for the onset of a paraplegia following a diagnostic lumbar puncture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the case of dumbbell tumors, compression of the spinal cord may produce lower extremity weakness or paraplegia.[emedicine.medscape.com] Dumbbell tumours can cause radicular pain, paraplegia and dysfunction of bladder or bowel. In a low percentage of patients the opsomyoclonus syndrome is found.[atlasgeneticsoncology.org]

  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her course was characterized by paraplegia, sensory loss, hyperesthesia, and incontinence of urine and feces. All patients, except ours, recovered fully from ATM.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 6-year-old boy developed symptoms of rapidly progressive paraplegia, associated with bowel and urinary dysfunction, but without sensory loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    Spinal tuberculosis leading to paraplegia is uncommon in pregnancy and is a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report three cases of TB of the spinal cord in young males with paraplegia or paraparesis who were hospitalized over a one-year period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Management of tubercular paraplegia, based upon the grading of paraplegia is simple, logical, efficient and easy to understand and remember by any orthopedic surgeon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Epidural Hematoma

    A laminectomy was not performed because the patient's paraplegia gradually improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her symptoms worsened with time, and she developed paraplegia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An hour later she developed paraplegia with sensory deficits below ThIV level, absence of patellar reflex, ankle jerk reflex and sphincter dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
