The following Conditions are related to Swallow

Select a specific condition below to view its details.

  • Botulism

    Foodborne botulism Signs and symptoms of foodborne botulism typically begin between 12 and 36 hours after the toxin gets into your body. But, depending on how much toxin was consumed, the start of symptoms may range from a few hours to a few days. Signs and symptoms of foodborne botulism include: Difficulty swallowing or speaking Dry mouth Facial weakness on both sides of the face Blurred  Read More

  • Brain, micropolygyria

    Brain Micropolygyria is a neuronal migration condition caused by the development of several small convolutions/microgyria. This leads to intellectual disability and other neurological anomalies.It is important to note that Micropolygyria is not a disease, to begin with; it is just descriptive while the primary cause of brain malformation is unknown.1. Symptoms (as per affected areas of the brain) of Bra  Read More

  • Creutzfeldt-jakob disease

    Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is marked by rapid mental deterioration, usually within a few months. Initial signs and symptoms typically include: Personality changes Anxiety Depression Memory loss Impaired thinking Blurred vision or blindness Insomnia Difficulty speaking Difficulty swallowing Sudden, jerky movements As the disea  Read More

  • De-efferented state

    De-efferented state is also named locked-in syndrome. It is a very rare neurological disorder. In this disorder, there occurs full paralysis of all the voluntary muscles, but only the muscle that controls the movements of the eyes is not affected. The person who is suffering from this disease is alert and conscious, and awake, but they are unable to produce any type of movement, or they are unable to speak. They can only commu  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

  • Guillain-barre syndrome

    Guillain-Barre syndrome often begins with tingling and weakness starting in your feet and legs and spreading to your upper body and arms. In about half of people with the disorder, symptoms begin in the arms or face. As Guillain-Barre syndrome progresses, muscle weakness can evolve into paralysis. Signs and symptoms of Guillain-Barre syndrome may include: Prickling, pins and needles sensations in your fingers, toes, ankl  Read More

  • Harrington syndrome

    A rare genetic disorder called Harrington syndrome causes the gradual death of brain nerve cells. Harrington syndrome, which often results in mobility, cognitive, and psychological disorders, has a substantial impact on a person's functional capacities. Huntington's disease symptoms can appear at any age, but most typically appear in adults in their 30s or 40s. When the disorder appears for the first time before the age of 20,  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

  • Kennedy-stefanis disease

    Kennedy disease is a rare, X-linked slowly progressive neuro-muscular disorder. Kennedy disease is typically an adult-onset disease, where symptoms occur mainly between the ages of 20 and 50. The disease is characterized by symptoms such as muscle weakness and cramps in the arms, legs, and facial area, enlarged breasts, and difficulty with speaking and swallowing (dysphagia). Kennedy disease affects fewer than 1 in 150,000 males and does not t  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

  • Spinal muscular atrophy type i

    The spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs), are characterized by degeneration of nerve cells (motor nuclei) within the lowest region of the brain (lower brainstem) and certain motor neurons in the spinal cord (anterior horn cells) leading to muscle weakness of the truncal, and extremity muscles initially, followed by chewing, swallowing and breathing difficulties. Motor neurons are nerve cells that transmit nerve impulses from the spinal cord or bra  Read More

  • Subacute cerebellar degeneration

    Subacute cerebellar degeneration (SCD) is characterized by the degradation of the brain region responsible for muscular coordination and balance (the cerebellum). Less frequently, the region linking the spinal cord to the brain may be implicated (the medulla oblongata, the cerebral cortex, and the brain stem). SCD is classified into two types: 1) paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration, which sometimes accompanies a cancer diag  Read More

  • Subacute spongiform encephalopathy

    Subacute spongiform encephalopathy is also known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), which is a degenerative brain condition that causes dementia and, eventually, death. Symptoms of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease may resemble those of dementia-like brain illnesses, such as Alzheimer's. However, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease normally advances much faster. CJD first gained public notice in the 1990s, when several persons in  Read More

  • Wallenbergs syndrome

    Usually, faulty modifications (mutations) in the EZH2 gene result in Wallenberg syndrome. The EZH2 gene functions wrongly as a result of these detrimental alterations. The EZH2 gene has the ability to methylate, or switch on and off, other genes. The fact that Wallenberg syndrome affects numerous body systems is due to the influence of the EZH2 gene on the operation of numerous other genes. However, it is unkn  Read More

  • X-linked congenital recessive muscle hyp...

    X-linked myotubular myopathy (XLMTM) is a rare genetic neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by muscle weakness that can range from mild to profound. Symptoms are often present at birth, but may first develop during infancy or early childhood. In rare cases, symptoms may not develop until later, even adulthood. Common symptoms include mild to profound muscle weakness, diminished muscle tone (hypotonia or "floppiness"), feeding difficult  Read More
