Infantile Hemiplegia

Infantile Cerebral Hemiplegia


Presentation

  • We present a case of intractable startle epilepsy with infantile hemiplegia and discuss the indications for a hemispherotomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a 6-month-old male infant who presented to our emergency room with acute left-sided limb weakness and head lag 3 days after a febrile upper respiratory tract infection.[smj.org.sa]
  • Presents a consistent chapter organization that delivers all the content you need in a logical, practical manner. Presents a new co-editor, Thomas D.[books.google.it]
  • This patient also typifies the poor prognosis in infants presenting with acute hemiplegia, fever, and convulsions in the absence of cerebrovascular occlusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • (c) Porencephalus was present in twenty-four of the ninety autopsies.[henriettes-herb.com]
Muscle Swelling
  • Light muscle swelling between muscle fibers. Dark points – that has fallen from the center of the nuclear cells. In the normal condition, muscle fibers closely adjoin each other.[klinikanikonova.com]
Drop Attacks
  • Consequently, these daily drop attacks severely restricted the patients' social lives and school participation. Both patients underwent corpus callosotomy and resection of epileptogenic premotor and supplementary motor lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • A metabolic workup was normal and stool culture for poliovirus was negative.[smj.org.sa]

Treatment

  • Thorough coverage for each neurological disease clearly defines age at onset, course of illness, clinical features, and treatment options. Differential diagnosis tables and treatment algorithms expedite clinical decision making.[books.google.com]
  • Offers practical, clinically relevant material for the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.[books.google.it]
  • G Therapy has shown positive effects in many cases in the treatment of infantile hemiplegia. Changes in patients after G Therapy treatment for infantile hemiplegia include improvements in spasticity, walking, fine coordination, gait, speech, etc.[autismtreatmentindia.com]
  • Finally a theoretical foundation of the synkinetic treatment is offered.[journals.co.za]

Prognosis

  • Because of its sensitivity, noninvasiveness, and accurate reflection of the cerebral blood flow distribution, 123I-IMP-SPECT is useful in the examination of acute infantile hemiplegia and in the evaluation of prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This patient also typifies the poor prognosis in infants presenting with acute hemiplegia, fever, and convulsions in the absence of cerebrovascular occlusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis .—As regards life, the prognosis is good, though mental impairment and some degree of paralysis remain. Aphasia is rarely ever permanent. Treatment .[henriettes-herb.com]
  • This patient also typifies the poor prognosis in infants presenting with acute hemiplegia, fever, and convulsions in the absence of cerebrovascular occlusion. 1977 by the American Academy of Neurology AAN Members: Sign in with your AAN member credentials[neurology.org]

Etiology

  • Serial cerebrospinal fluid viral cultures were necessary to isolate the etiologic agent (tcoxsackie A9).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The infectious and traumatic groups of acquired etiologies showed no significant difference in mean I.Q. scores.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Epidemiology Benign paroxysmal vertigo of childhood, sometimes considered a migraine variant, generally presents in toddlers. Acute confusional migraine generally presents in the elementary school years.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Summary Epidemiology Annual incidence is estimated at 0.9/100,000 newborns. Clinical description Onset occurs before 18 months of age.[orpha.net]
  • Summary Epidemiology Alternating hemiplagia of childhood (AHC) prevalence is estimated at 1/100,000 in children under 16 years old, although underdiagnosis is probable.[orpha.net]

Pathophysiology

  • Etiology Although the exact pathophysiological mechanism of AHC remains unclear, de novo heterozygous mutations in the ATP1A3 (19q13.2) gene, encoding a subunit of the Na /K ATPase pump, have been implicated as causative for the majority of screened AHC[orpha.net]
  • Pathophysiology and Etiology Although migraine and variants of migraine have long been assumed to have a vascular etiology, increasing evidence points to underlying primary neurologic causes. Some forms of migraine are genetic.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • This work identifies de novo ATP1A3 mutations as the primary cause of AHC and offers insight into disease pathophysiology by expanding the spectrum of phenotypes associated with mutations in ATP1A3.[nature.com]
