2. Intraspinal hypotension syndrome presents as transient quadriplegia. (Abstract)

Intraspinal hypotension syndrome presents as transient quadriplegia. Intracranial hypotension can be a complication of epidural anaesthesia. Pure clinical spinal hypotension manifesting as acute transient quadriplegia following epidural anaesthesia is a severe, life-threatening complication that have not been described before. This complication can be solved with an epidural blood patch; thus, it should be familiar to doctors across all specialities.

3. Transient Cardiomyopathy and Quadriplegia Induced by Ephedrine Decongestant Full Text available with Trip Pro

Transient Cardiomyopathy and Quadriplegia Induced by Ephedrine Decongestant Ephedrine decongestant products are widely used. Common side effects include palpitations, nervousness, and headache. More severe adverse reactions include cardiomyopathy and vasospasm. We report the case of an otherwise healthy 37-year-old woman who presented with acute-onset quadriplegia and heart failure. She had a normal chest radiograph on admission, but developed marked pulmonary edema and bilateral effusions (...) to excessive use of decongestants. Her symptoms resolved completely with supportive care and appropriate heart-failure management. An echocardiogram 2 weeks after admission showed improvement of the left ventricular ejection fraction to 0.33. Ten months after the event, the patient was entirely asymptomatic and showed further improvement of her ejection fraction to 0.45. To our knowledge, ours is the first report of spinal artery vasospasm resulting in quadriplegia in a human being after ephedrine

Delayed Transient Post-Traumatic Quadriplegia Transient neurological deficit following cervical trauma have been reported following sports injuries, and has been referred to as cervical cord neurapraxia. The so-called "whiplash injuries" following minor motor vehicle collisions usually do not produce any neurological deficit. Here we report the case of a whiplash type of injury presenting with a delayed onset neurological deficit, which was followed by rapid and complete recovery. The patient

The neurological examination showed tetraplegia and hypalgesia below the C2 level, but neither facial palsy nor aphasia was found.The patient was initially misdiagnosed as TIA and treated with antiplatelet therapy. But during the hospital day, the cervical magnetic resonance imaging showed a dorsal epidural hematoma extending from (...) Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma mimicking transient ischemic attack: A case report. Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma (SSEH) is a rare but highly disabling neurological emergency. The initial presentations are variable. Most patients of SSEH present with paraplegia or tetraplegia clinically, but recurrent hemiparesis with complete spontaneous recovery, mimicking transient ischemic attack (TIA), is a very rare initial presentation of SSEH.A 71-year-old female presented to the emergency

Patients with continuing risk factors for thrombosis, such as active malignancy, immobility, or hypercoagulable states, are at higher risk, while patients who experience thrombosis under transient circumstances (e.g., post-operatively) are at lower risk of recurrence. In general, patients with a first episode of venous thrombosis should receive 3 months of full-dose

10. Dominant-Negative Mutations in alpha-II Spectrin Cause West Syndrome with Severe Cerebral Hypomyelination, Spastic Quadriplegia, and Developmental Delay. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Dominant-Negative Mutations in alpha-II Spectrin Cause West Syndrome with Severe Cerebral Hypomyelination, Spastic Quadriplegia, and Developmental Delay. A de novo 9q33.3-q34.11 microdeletion involving STXBP1 has been found in one of four individuals (group A) with early-onset West syndrome, severe hypomyelination, poor visual attention, and developmental delay. Although haploinsufficiency of STXBP1 was involved in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy in a previous different cohort study (...) was further screened in six unrelated individuals with WS and hypomyelination, but no mutations were found. Recombinant mutant (mut) and wild-type (WT) alpha-II spectrin could assemble heterodimers with beta-II spectrin, but alpha-II (mut)/beta-II spectrin heterodimers were thermolabile compared with the alpha-II (WT)/beta-II heterodimers. Transient expression in mouse cortical neurons revealed aggregation of alpha-II (mut)/beta-II and alpha-II (mut)/beta-III spectrin heterodimers, which was also observed

14. West Nile Virus: Just How Bad Is It?

infections, especially in the elderly and immunocompromised, are characterized as West Nile encephalitis. These infections result in a [5]. Finally, the most devastating disease variant is West Nile acute flaccid paralysis (WNP), which accounts for approximately 10% of neuroinvasive disease [5]. Interestingly, WNP is not a transient demyelinating process, as seen with infection-mediated Guillain-Barré syndrome; rather, the paralysis is due to irreversible anterior horn neuronal damage consistent (...) with poliomyelitis [3]. The extent of paralysis can range form monoplegia to quadriplegia with neuromuscular respiratory failure, which results in mortality rates ranging from 10-50% [5]. In addition to short-term morbidity and mortality, neuroinvasive West Nile disease is associated with persistent fatigue, weakness, ataxia, and cognitive dysfunction in nearly 50% of survivors in long-term follow-up studies [5]. Although the probability of severe disease is <1% of the relatively small number of total West Nile

upper cervical spinal cord injuries. All were associated with cephalic deliveries requiring rotational maneuvers with forceps. All but 1 child was apneic at birth with quadriplegia. There is no description of post-injury spinal column or spinal cord management, medical or surgical, in their report. Rossitch and Oakes described 5 neonates with birth-related spinal cord injuries. They reported that incorrect diagnoses were made in 4. They consisted of Werdnig-Hoffmann syndrome, occult myelodysplasia (...) that the presentation of apnea with flaccid quadriplegia following cephalic presentation with forceps manipulation is the hallmark of upper cervical spinal cord injury. Absence of respiratory effort within the first 24 hours of life is associated with dependence upon long-term mechanical ventilation. It appears reasonable to treat these neonates with spinal immobilization for a presumed cervical spinal injury. The method and length of immobilization remains arbitrary.

Of the remaining 8 patients managed with external immobilization alone, 3 were unstable after 6 to 22 weeks of immobilization (1 Type I, 2 Type II). Of these 3 patients with persistent instability despite external immobilization, 2 presented with quadriplegia and 1 was neurologically normal. All 3 (...) normal (1 Type I, 1 Type III, 2 other type). , Two of those 4 patients originally reported as normal developed a monoparesis (1 Type 1, 1 other type). , Neither recovered completely. Eight of the remaining 12 patients had neurologic abnormalities from the outset, 5 of whom worsened. Four of the 5 transiently worsened, including 1 Type I injury patient with quadriparesis and Cranial Nerve IX, X, and XII palsies who improved but was spastic at last follow-up.
