  • Azorean neurologic disease

    Azorean neurologic disease is one of the 40 types of spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA). It is the third type and is called type 3 SCA. Mutations in the gene that codes for the protein ataxin-3 cause the disease. Particularly, the gradual expansion of the CAG repeats is the cause. Normal ataxin-3 is involved in protein homeostasis and cytoskeleton regulation in the central nervous system. The abnormal ataxin protein leads to the los  Read More

  • Dutch-kennedy syndrome

    Dutch-kennedy syndrome is a rare inherited disorder characterized by short muscles and tendons that result in limited mobility of the hands, legs, and mouth. The most serious complication of this condition is the inability to completely open the mouth (trismus), which causes difficulty with chewing. Short muscles and tendons in the fingers cause the fingers to bend or curve (camptodactyly) when the hand is bent back at the wri  Read More

  • Encephalocele

    An uncommon illness called encephalocele that develops before birth (congenital). Typically, the third and fourth weeks of pregnancy are when the brain and spinal cord develop. The neural tube is how they are created. The majority of encephaloceles develop when the neural tube is not completely closed. When the baby's brain, neurological system, and skull are just beginning to form, this should take place. Brain tissue and spi  Read More

  • Epilepsy and multiple subpial transection (mst)

    Epilepsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations and sometimes loss of awareness Anyone can develop epilepsy. Epilepsy and multiple subpial transection (MST) affects both males and females of all races, ethnic backgrounds and ages Because epilepsy is caused by abnormal activity in the brain, seiz  Read More

  • Epilepsy: extratemporal cortical resection

    Epilepsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations and sometimes loss of awareness . Anyone can develop epilepsy. Epilepsy affects both males and females of all races, ethnic backgrounds and ages ecause epilepsy is caused by abnormal activity in the brain, seizures can affect any process your brain coordinates. Seizure signs and symp  Read More

  • Epilepsy: vagus nerve stimulation (vns)

    Employing a device to deliver electrical impulses to the vagus nerve is known as vagus nerve stimulation (VNS). The application of an implantable vagus stimulator to treat epilepsy is officially approved by the FDA. Each side of your body has one vagus nerve, which travels from your brainstem through your neck to your chest and belly. A neurological condition called epilepsy affects the brain and increases the ris  Read More

  • Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification

    Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification is a hereditary, genetic condition marked by abnormal calcium deposits in parts of the brain that regulate movement. Basal ganglia, cerebral, and cortical regions (parts of the brain) have calcium deposits that cause atrophy. Motor and mental problems result from the considerable neuron (brain cell) loss caused by this mineral deposit. There is a paucity of molecular and gene  Read More

  • Infantile epileptic encephalopathy

    The neurological condition known as infantile epileptic encephalopathy is characterized by seizures. The condition typically manifests in infants as epileptic seizures within the first three months of life (most frequently within the first 10 days). Symptoms of infantile epileptic encephalopathy 1. The electroencephalogram (EEG), which gauges the electrical activity of the brain, exhibits EIEE symptom  Read More

  • Lymphedema hereditary

    Cure/medications for lymphedema hereditary: 1. Hereditary lymphedema treatment focuses on symptom management, especially lowering edema and avoiding infection. Referral to a lymphedema therapist is advised for lower leg edema. 2. Fitting compression hosiery, bandaging, massage, supportive footwear, and proper skin care are all possible treatment options. 3. Complete decongestive therapy (CDT) is a type of car  Read More

  • Motoneuron disease

    Symptoms of Motor Neuron Disease are as follows:1. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: ALS influences your upper as well as your lower motor neurons. Gradually, your control over the muscles that aid you in walking, speaking, chewing, swallowing and breathing is lost. They grow weaker and waste away as time passes. You could experience stiffness and twitches in the muscles.2. Primary Lateral Sclerosis: PLS o  Read More

  • Moyamoya syndrome

    Moyamoya syndrome is defined as a progressive condition that disturbs the blood vessels in the brain. One of its earliest signs of evidence is stenosis or occlusion of the carotid artery present in the skull. Simultaneously, this blockage of blood impels the minute blood vessels at the base of the brain open up. It is said to be an attempt to improve the blood supply. The tiny blood vessels --named moyamoya-- give the disease  Read More

  • Occlusive peripheral vascular disease

    Buerger's disease, also known as thromboangiitis obliterans, is a rare disorder that, in most cases, affects young or middle-aged male cigarette smokers. It is characterized by narrowing or blockage (occlusion) of the veins and arteries of the extremities, resulting in reduced blood flow to these areas (peripheral vascular disease). The legs are affected more often than the arms. In most cases, the first symptom is extreme pain of the lower ar  Read More

  • Opthalmoneuromyelitis

    Opthalmoneuromyelitis, also known as Devic disease, is an acquired condition triggered by autoimmune reactions and certain microbial infections. However, some studies suspect the involvement of genetic factors. It is a rare chronic demyelinating disorder that affects the optic nerve and spinal cord. There are two forms: monophasic and relapsing. Monophasic occurs once that lasts for 30 to 60 days. Whereas it recurs in a relaps  Read More

  • Optic neuromyelitis

    Optic neuromyelitis, also known as Devic's disorder or neuromyelitis optica, is a central nervous system disease that primarily affects the eye and spinal cord. Effects on the eyes are referred to as optic neuritis, whereas those on the spinal cord are called myelitis. The clinical manifestations are blindness in one or both eyes, weakness or paralysis in the legs or arms, painful spasms, loss of sensation, uncontrollable vomi  Read More

  • Phlebitis and thrombophlebitis

    Phlebitis is an inflammation of veins, whereas thrombophlebitis is phlebitis with the clotting of blood in the affected vein. Treatment Supportive therapy includes elevation of the affected extremity, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, warm or cold compress, compression stockings, and increased ambulation. 1. Superficial thrombophlebitis An intermediate subcutaneous dose of low-molecular-weigh  Read More

  • Sudeck's atrophy

    Sudeck's atrophy is also called Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) which is a type of persistent pain that typically affects one's arm or leg. CRPS usually arises as a result of an injury, surgery, stroke, or heart attack. The pain is excessive in comparison to the intensity of the initial damage. The specific causes of CRPS are unknown. It is assumed to be caused by a difference or injury to the peripheral and central nerv  Read More

  • Thoracic outlet syndrome (tos)

    Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition whereby symptoms are produced from compression of nerves or blood vessels, or both, because of an inadequate passageway through an area (thoracic outlet) between the base of the neck and the armpit. Thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms include neck pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, numbness and tingling of the fingers, impaired circulation to th  Read More
