74 Possible Causes for Patient Appears Acutely Ill, Peripheral Motor Neuropathy

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    In cases where muscle weakness persists after the acute phase of the illness, patients may require rehabilitation services to strengthen their muscles and restore movement[who.int] In this type, the covering around peripheral nerve cells, called myelin, is damaged. Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN).[childrenshospital.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]

  • Lyme Disease

    neuropathy and sometimes motor neuron disease, neuropsychiatric presentations, cardiac presentations (including electrical conduction delays and dilated cardiomyopathy),[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] inclusive of persistent symptomatologies including fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, headaches, sleep disturbance and other neurologic features, such as demyelinating disease, peripheral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    motor neuropathy.[bestpractice.bmj.com] A 45-year-old man with end-stage renal disease due to polycystic kidney disease was admitted to the hospital because of recurrent abdominal pain, progressive peripheral motor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] neuropathies (motor paresis, n 7; impairment of bulbar or respiratory function, n 4).[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] […] abdominal pain which is severe and poorly localized (most common, 95% of patients experience), Urinary symptoms (Dysuria, urinary retention/incontinence or dark urine), peripheral[house.wikia.com]

  • Tick Paralysis

    A 60 year old farmer from west Shewa in Ethiopia presented on February 13 2014, with right arm flaccid monoplegia after bitten by a tick stuck to his right arm pit. The case was initially misdiagnosed as cellulitis. To our knowledge, tick paralysis has not been reported from Ethiopia. We report the case presentation[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lead Poisoning

    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] Foot drop - due to motor peripheral neuropathy. Wrist drop - this is a late sign. Carpal tunnel syndrome. Gout.[patient.info] Peripheral blood films showed anisocytosis, basophilic stippling and Cabot's rings. Electromyography confirmed typical motor nerve neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • West Nile Encephalitis

    Surprisingly, most of these studies have found that patients with milder acute illness appear to be just as likely to describe persistent problems, such as fatigue, memory[academic.oup.com] North Dakota 1 year after acute illness [ 10 ].[academic.oup.com] […] difficulties, and muscle pain, as are patients with WNND, and nonhospitalized patients are just as likely to describe ongoing functional difficulties as are hospitalized[academic.oup.com]

  • Acute Kidney Failure

    Acute kidney injury (AKI) is commonly encountered in critically ill patients and appears to exert an important modifying effect on mortality and health resource utilization[sccm.org] . -- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and other motor neuron diseases / Pamela J. Shaw -- Peripheral neuropathies / Michael E.[worldcat.org]

  • Anxiety Disorder

    […] diseases (subacute paraplegia, peripheral neuropathy and coma).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] thrombosis in particular) Detection following often florid neurological symptoms (psychiatric disorders associated with rapid cognitive decline or even a dementia syndrome, or motor[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] psychiatric involvement may essentially be characterised by psychotic symptoms (behavioural disorders, hallucinations), which may be accompanied by disorders of consciousness and peripheral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Porphyria

    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] Respiratory paralysis 9-20 Preceded by progressive peripheral motor neuropathy and paresis.[clinicaladvisor.com] The most common symptoms are abdominal pain; constipation; pain in the back, chest and extremities; anxiety; seizures; and a predominantly motor peripheral neuropathy resulting[web.archive.org]
