1,010 Possible Causes for Progressive Polyneuropathy, Starvation Ketosis

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    In addition, although alcoholic ketoacidosis can result in profound acidosis, the serum bicarbonate concentration in starvation ketosis is usually not 4 ).[web.archive.org] Starvation ketosis and alcoholic ketoacidosis are distinguished by clinical history and by plasma glucose concentrations that range from mildly elevated (rarely 200 mg/dl)[web.archive.org]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Ethanol also causes structural abnormalities in the liver mitochondria which leads to ketosis superimposed by starvation, chronic malnutrition [ 13, 14 ].[pubs.sciepub.com]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    peripheral neuropathy, and spinal degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] normal One-Carbon metabolism leading to the observed clinical neurological manifestations such as nerve damage and, demyelination, degeneration of PNS leading to paralysis, progressive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

    Loss of proprioception Can progress to weakness, spasticity, clonus, paraplegia and loss of bowel/bladder function.[canadiem.org] ketosis.[emedicine.com] “Classic Triad”: Weakness Parathesia Sore tongue Patients may also demonstrate: Megaloblastic anemia Neurological changes: Symmetric polyneuropathy: legs arms Ascending parathesia[canadiem.org]

  • Vomiting of Pregnancy

    ketosis with ketonuria, elevated specific gravity and BUN, and a hypochloremic hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis. 1,3,15 It is recommended to replete with thiamine if significant[emdocs.net] […] ondansetron, and metoclopramide. 13-14 In more severe cases, women may develop hyperemesis gravidarum that may result in dehydration ( 5% weight loss), orthostatic hypotension, starvation[emdocs.net]

  • Hyperuricemia

    The patient developed progressive peripheral neuropathy in additon to his profound mental retardation and self-injurious behavior.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Decreased tubular secretion of urate occurs in patients with acidosis (eg, diabetic ketoacidosis, ethanol or salicylate intoxication, starvation ketosis).[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Vasculitis

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    We report a fatal case of severe chronic progressive axonal polyradiculoneuropathy in association with this antibody.[doi.org] It is usually a distal sensorimotor polyneuropathy that causes mild motor weakness, sensory loss, and absent distal reflexes.[merckmanuals.com] Electromyography and nerve conduction studies demonstrate findings compatible with multifocal neuropathy or diffuse axonal polyneuropathy with asymmetric involvement. 97 Combined[bloodjournal.org]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    Shortly after HSCT the patient developed progressive polyneuropathy of the lower legs and hypoesthesia. Five months later a severe dementia followed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a 58-year-old woman with DADS that progressed to a severe case of classic CIDP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of Waldenström's macroglobulinemia in an adult male presenting with cranial nerve palsy and rapidly progressive asymmetric polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
