1,290 Possible Causes for Quadriplegia, Seizure

  • Meningitis

    Rapidly Progressive Quadriplegia and Encephalopathy.[] A patient with a 30-year history of RA, well controlled with methotrexate therapy, presented with new-onset seizures.[] Two hours prior to admission, he developed epileptic seizures. Brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed intracerebral malacic lesions.[]

  • Porphyria

    In extreme cases, even quadriplegia or respiratory paralysis may occur.[] We report a case of a 27-year-old female patient who presented with acute abdominal pain, vomiting and marked hyponatremia, developed seizures and disorientation, and eventually[] […] neurological complications: typically motor neuropathy (severe dysfunction of the peripheral nerves that innervate muscle), which leads to muscle weakness and potentially to quadriplegia[]

  • Febrile Convulsions

    Code Applicable To Convulsion disorder Fit NOS Recurrent convulsions Seizure(s) (convulsive) NOS febrile (simple) R56.00 ICD-10-CM Codes Adjacent To R56.00 R53.2 Functional quadriplegia[] Complex febrile convulsions are defined by the presence of prolonged seizures, partial seizures and multiple seizures occurring during the same day.[] Billable/Specific Code Applicable To Febrile convulsion NOS Febrile seizure NOS complex (atypical) (complicated) R56.01 ICD-10-CM Codes Adjacent To R56.01 R53.2 Functional quadriplegia[]

  • Rabies

    He presented with progressive ascending paralysis, finally developing quadriplegia and respiratory paralysis. Typical hydrophobia and aerophobia were absent.[] Few days later she became drowsy and developed recurrent seizures and marked phobic spasms which prompted the treating physician to diagnose human rabies.[] We report a case of a 6-year-old boy who presented febrile seizure with agitation and cerebellar signs, without hydrophobia or hypersalivation, 17 days after a dog bite.[]

  • Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia

    We experienced a 6-year-old girl with spastic quadriplegia, intractable epilepsy, and mental retardation, all initially regarded as sequelae of neonatal meningitis.[] […] before treatment to no seizures, or only occasional minor ones, after treatment.[] Early diagnosis and treatment of pyridoxine-dependent seizures is essential for an improved neurologic outcome.[]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    We describe a 60-year-old male patient with acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) who presented with initial abdominal pain and subsequent quadriplegia and respiratory failure[] Both the patients were presented with seizures and PRES on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Unexplained abdominal pain occurred before the onset of seizures.[] We report a 36-year-old woman presenting with hypertensive encephalopathy followed by bulbar palsy and quadriplegia.[]

  • Lissencephaly

    You may notice that children with spastic quadriplegia are usually skinny. This is because the muscles use up lots of energy because they are always tense.[] It is to consider lissencephaly in the diagnosis of developmental delay with seizure disorder as many patients may be diagnosed as cerebral palsy.[] […] tonic-clonic seizures being the predominant type.[]

  • Fucosidosis

    Clinical features consist of variable mental retardation (all patients), progressive spastic quadriplegia (6/10 cases), coarse facies (9/10 cases), growth retardation (7/9[] […] progressive mental and motor deterioration, coarse facies, growth retardation, recurrent infections, dysostosis multiplex, angiokeratoma corporis diffusum, visceromegaly and seizures[] As the disease progresses, more serious and ever worsening symptoms develop, including seizures, spastic quadriplegia, progressive mental retardation and chronic lung infections[]

  • Septo-Optic Dysplasia

    The flaccid mobility of all four extremities of the fetus, demonstrated prenatally by real-time ultrasound and functional MRI, forecast the risk of postnatal spastic quadriplegia[] A 7-year-old boy was admitted for a general tonic-clonic seizure with severe hypoglycaemia (1.39 mmol/l).[] A female infant presented with poor feeding, hypotonia, prolonged jaundice, seizure and wandering nystagmus.[]

  • Ecstasy

    We describe the first case of spinal cord damage presenting as acute quadriplegia and respiratory insufficiency in a healthy adolescent following Ecstasy recreational usage[] Treatment to terminate the seizures necessitated intubation and ventilation, and cooling measures brought the temperature within normal limits.[] Serious adverse effects are well documented and include arrhythmias, hyperthermia, seizures and long-term neuropsychiatric effects.[]
