  • Meningitis

    Rapidly Progressive Quadriplegia and Encephalopathy.[]

  • Locked-in Syndrome

    Quadriplegia fixed that. I've now had a play performed in theatres and on national radio, and have enjoyed many years of writing.[] A 21-year-old man presented with an extremely rare case of locked-in syndrome caused by a metastatic brainstem tumor manifesting as quadriplegia, lower cranial nerve pareses[] The locked-in syndrome is defined as quadriplegia and anarthria (loss of articulate speech) with the preservation of consciousness.[]

  • Porphyria

    In extreme cases, even quadriplegia or respiratory paralysis may occur.[] […] neurological complications: typically motor neuropathy (severe dysfunction of the peripheral nerves that innervate muscle), which leads to muscle weakness and potentially to quadriplegia[]

  • Osteoporosis

    As much as 30 to 40 per cent of initial bone mass may be lost after six months of total immobilization, as in paraplegia and quadriplegia due to spinal cord injury.[]

  • Central Pontine Myelinolysis

    When the patient developed quadriplegia and respiratory failure 5 days later, brain magnetic resonance imaging showed central pontine and extra-pontine myelinolysis.[] In 1949, Victor and Adams observed an alcoholic patient who developed quadriplegia and pseudobulbar palsy, and inability to chew, talk or swallow.[] The symptoms may appear with a biphasic course, consisting of seizures and/or encephalopathy, with a period of improvement, followed by deterioration consisting of spastic quadriplegia[]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Permanent quadriplegia is a complication of cricotracheal resection with chin-to-chest sutures and should be included in the informed consent process.[] Acute spontaneous spinal cord infarction (SCI) is rare, but can cause the sudden onset of quadriplegia or quadriparesis.[] We treated an 8-year-old girl who developed quadriplegia after surgery for a fourth ventricular ependymoma.[]

  • Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy

    […] in utero demyelinization, and death in early infancy Clinical Spastic paralysis, seizures, pyrexia, vomiting, cortical blindness, deafness, dysphagia, pseudobulbar palsy, quadriplegia[] Inherited, demyelinating, human lipid storage disease caused by a deficiency of galactosylceramidase; manifestations include convulsions, quadriplegia, blindness, deafness[]

  • Ichthyosis

    Recessive Mutations in ELOVL4 Cause Ichthyosis, Intellectual Disability, and Spastic Quadriplegia . Am J Hum Genet. 2011 Nov 16.[] Mental retardation may be mild to severe and spastic diplegia or quadriplegia is common but there is little evidence of progression.[] References Article Title: Recessive Mutations in ELOVL4 Cause Ichthyosis, Intellectual Disability, and Spastic Quadriplegia Aldahmesh MA, Mohamed JY, Alkuraya HS, Verma IC[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Two patients with cerebral hemorrhagic stroke developed progressive flaccid quadriplegia and life-threatening dyspnea in acute stage.[] A 41-year-old man presented with aggressive speech difficulty, dysphagia, right blepharoptosis, and quadriplegia following coma.[] None of the patients progressed to florid quadriplegia. All patients recovered by 1 to 2 grades on Hughes scale before being discharged from the hospital.[]
