16 Possible Causes for Peripheral Neuropathy Has Been Reported in Rare Cases

  • Mobius Syndrome

    Möbius' syndrome is a complex neurologic disorder; its etiology and characterization have eluded clinicians for over a century. The pure Möbius' syndrome is rare, and the involvement of the sixth and seventh nerves has been found to have a host of associated defects. These include limb and shoulder abnormalities;[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Peripheral neuropathy is a rare side effect of linezolid and is conventionally considered as irreversible.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, acute peripheral neuropathy associated with antiglutamic acid decarboxylase autoimmunity has not been reported previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report a case of reversible neuropathy induced by linezolid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Somatic Delusional Disorder

    To our knowledge, somatic delusions secondary to peripheral neuropathy has not been reported up to now therefore this case illustrates a very rare organic delusional disorder[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    Nervous system Rarely, peripheral neuropathy with primarily motor function loss has been reported in patients receiving dapsone.[doi.org] Tragic cases of patients who had ingested dapsone with suicidal intention confirm the ability of the drug to damage the peripheral nervous system, including the optic nerve[doi.org]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    Acute transverse myelitis (ATM) has been described as an uncommon complication of vaccinations and is rarely accompanied by inflammatory peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of a 77-year-old woman who developed ATM and acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN) following vaccinations against seasonal and 2009 A/H1N1 influenza.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Light Chain Disease

    Deposits in the liver usually cause no symptoms; however, liver failure in rare cases has been reported.[davita.com] Peripheral neuropathy with pain, loss of sensation or an inability to control muscles can develop if the nervous system is involved, and if light chains are deposited in the[davita.com]

  • Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Palsy

    Vinca alkaloids are well known to cause peripheral neuropathy. However, vinca alkaloids causing recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy has been reported rarely in children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of an adult patient with HIV who developed hoarseness of voice due to vocal cord paralysis during vinblastine treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heavy Chain Deposition Disease

    Deposits in the liver usually cause no symptoms; however, liver failure in rare cases has been reported.[davita.com] Peripheral neuropathy with pain, loss of sensation or an inability to control muscles can develop if the nervous system is involved, and if light chains are deposited in the[davita.com]

  • Organophosphate Poisoning

    Peripheral neuropathy has been described as a rare complication of organophosphate toxicity in man.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A case of diaphragmatic paralysis occurring after ingestion of malathion in a suicide attempt is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tangier Disease

    Cardiovascular disease has been reported in adults with Tangier disease.[rarediseases.org] Fat accumulations in nerves can cause disturbances and loss-of-sensation called peripheral neuropathy.[rarediseases.org] In rare cases, a clouding of the cornea of the eye can occur, but is generally mild and does not cause vision impairment.[rarediseases.org]
