A condition where damage to the peripheral nervous system (including the peripheral elements of the autonomic nervous system) is associated with chronic ingestion of alcoholic beverages. The disorder may be caused by a direct effect of alcohol, an associated nutritional deficiency, or a combination of factors. Clinical manifestations include variable degrees of weakness; ATROPHY; PARESTHESIAS; pain; loss of reflexes; sensory loss; diaphoresis; and postural hypotension.

Diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.
A primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.

Acute alcoholic myopathy, rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure: a case report. (1/15)

A case of middle aged male who developed swelling and weakness of muscles in the lower limbs following a heavy binge of alcohol is being reported. He had myoglobinuria and developed acute renal failure for which he was dialyzed. Acute alcoholic myopathy is not a well recognized condition and should be considered in any intoxicated patient who presents with muscle tenderness and weakness.  (+info)

Impaired stimulation of intestinal glucose absorption by portal insulin via hepatoenteral nerves in chronically ethanol-intoxicated rats. (2/15)

In the isolated, jointly perfused small intestine and liver of rats insulin, infused into the portal vein, induced an increase in intestinal glucose absorption via hepatoenteral cholinergic nerves. The possible loss of function of these nerves due to ethanol-induced neuropathy was investigated with 6 weeks ethanol-fed rats. Portal insulin or arterial carbachol failed to increase intestinal glucose absorption but cAMP still did so. The intact stimulatory effect of cAMP indicated an undisturbed capacity of the enterocytes. The loss of action of portal insulin and of arterial carbachol can be explained by the impairment of the hepatoenteral nerves in line with an ethanol-induced neuropathy.  (+info)

Key role for the epsilon isoform of protein kinase C in painful alcoholic neuropathy in the rat. (3/15)

Chronic alcohol consumption produces a painful peripheral neuropathy for which there is no reliably successful therapy, attributable to, in great part, a lack of understanding of the underlying mechanisms. We tested the hypothesis that neuropathic pain associated with chronic alcohol consumption is a result of abnormal peripheral nociceptor function. In rats maintained on a diet to simulate chronic alcohol consumption in humans, mechanical hyperalgesia was present by the fourth week and maximal at 10 weeks. Thermal hyperalgesia and mechanical allodynia were also present. Mechanical threshold of C-fibers in ethanol fed rats was lowered, and the number of action potentials during sustained stimulation increased. The hyperalgesia was acutely attenuated by intradermal injection of nonselective protein kinase C (PKC) or selective PKCepsilon inhibitors injected at the site of nociceptive testing. Western immunoblot analysis indicated a higher level of PKCepsilon in dorsal root ganglia from alcohol-fed rats, supporting a role for enhanced PKCepsilon second-messenger signaling in nociceptors contributing to alcohol-induced hyperalgesia.  (+info)

Alcoholic polyneuropathy: a clinical and epidemiological study. (4/15)

In the present study, we investigated the frequency of polyneuropathy in a sample of 296 alcoholics who were admitted to the 'S. Maugeri' Medical Centre for detoxification from October 1997 to November 1999. Results revealed a high frequency of polyneuropathy in the sample under study. The disorder was often clinically asymptomatic and demonstrable only on electroneurographic investigation. Significant correlations were found between polyneuropathy, the duration of alcoholism, the type of alcoholic beverage consumed (wine) and the presence of liver disease and macrocytosis.  (+info)

Current perception threshold and sympathetic skin response in diabetic and alcoholic polyneuropathies. (5/15)

OBJECTIVE: Correlation between current perception threshold and sympathetic skin response was investigated in patients with diabetic or alcoholic polyneuropathy. METHODS: Current perception threshold was measured using Neurometer CPT/C, and the sympathetic skin response was measured using Neuropack sigma. PATIENTS: Fourteen patients with diabetic polyneuropathy and 10 patients with alcoholic polyneuropathy were studied. RESULTS: There was a significant negative correlation between the current perception threshold to 5 Hz stimulation and the amplitude of sympathetic skin response. CONCLUSION: Since both current perception threshold to 5 Hz stimulation and sympathetic skin response are related to C fibers, these two are considered to be impaired concurrently in diabetic and alcoholic polyneuropathies.  (+info)

Resolution of alcoholic neuropathy following liver transplantation. (6/15)

Between 10 and 20% of adult liver transplants are performed for end-stage alcoholic liver disease. Severe extrahepatic end-organ damage from alcoholism (cardiomyopathy, pancreatitis, central nervous system injury, and neuropathy) is widely regarded as an absolute contraindication to liver transplantation, despite a lack of data on the effect of transplantation on these complications. We describe such a patient who presented with decompensated alcoholic liver disease and moderately severe peripheral neuropathy. Both his liver failure and neuropathy progressed despite 9 months abstinence and intensive nutritional support. By 12 months post-transplant, however, this patient had regained almost normal muscle strength, with associated recovery in sensory and motor conduction velocities. Direct alcohol toxicity, nutritional and vitamin deficiencies, and liver failure were all likely etiologic factors in this patient's neuropathy. In conclusion, this case suggests that peripheral neuropathy in a patient with alcoholic cirrhosis may resolve following liver transplantation and should not constitute a contraindication to transplantation, even when it is disabling.  (+info)

Lhermitte's sign in alcoholic myelopathy without portosystemic shunting: MRI evaluation. (7/15)

We conducted spinal MR imaging on a 35-year-old man with Lhermitte's sign that had manifested over the previous 4 years. He had consumed more than 500 ml of whisky daily for at least 10 years. However, he did not show any evidence of severe liver disease with hepato-systemic blood shunting. Neurologic examination revealed markedly depressed sense of vibration in the feet and mild spasticity in the lower limbs, together with Lhermitte's sign. MR imaging revealed abnormal signal intensity in the posterior column spanning the whole length of the upper cervical cord, which is consistent with Lhermitte's sign.  (+info)

Treatment of alcoholic polyneuropathy with vitamin B complex: a randomised controlled trial. (8/15)

AIMS: To evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and safety of BEFACT Forte 'new formulation' and BEFACT Forte 'old formulation' in the treatment of sensory symptoms of alcoholic polyneuropathy. METHODS: A multi-centre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted on 325 patients with sensory symptoms and signs of alcoholic polyneuropathy. Patients were randomised to the 'old formulation' (i.e. vitamins B1, B2, B6, and B12), 'new formulation' [i.e. identical to the 'old formulation' with additional folic acid (vitamin B9)], or placebo in a 1:1:1 ratio. One tablet of the study medication ('new formulation' or 'old formulation') or placebo was taken orally, three times a day, over a 12-week treatment period. RESULTS: Therapeutic efficacy was assessed in 253 patients by measuring vibration perception threshold (biothesiometry), intensity of pain, sensory function, co-ordination, and reflex responses. Patients treated with the 'new formulation' or 'old formulation' showed significant improvement in the primary efficacy endpoint (vibration perception threshold at the big toe) and secondary efficacy endpoints in comparison to placebo. The active treatment groups were comparable to placebo in terms of safety. CONCLUSIONS: A specific vitamin B complex (with and without folic acid) significantly improved symptoms of alcoholic polyneuropathy over a 12-week treatment period.  (+info)

Alcoholic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that occurs due to excessive alcohol consumption. It's caused by the toxic effects of alcohol and its byproducts on nerves throughout the body, particularly in the peripheral nervous system. The condition typically develops over time, with symptoms becoming more severe as alcohol abuse continues.

The symptoms of alcoholic neuropathy can vary widely depending on which nerves are affected. However, common symptoms include:

1. Numbness or tingling in the arms and legs
2. Muscle weakness and cramps
3. Loss of reflexes
4. Difficulty with balance and coordination
5. Pain or burning sensations in the extremities
6. Heat intolerance
7. Bladder and bowel dysfunction
8. Sexual dysfunction

Treatment for alcoholic neuropathy typically involves addressing the underlying alcohol abuse, as well as managing symptoms with medications and physical therapy. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary to monitor and manage complications. It's important to note that abstaining from alcohol is the only way to prevent further nerve damage and improve symptoms over time.

An encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference work containing articles on various topics, usually arranged in alphabetical order. In the context of medicine, a medical encyclopedia is a collection of articles that provide information about a wide range of medical topics, including diseases and conditions, treatments, tests, procedures, and anatomy and physiology. Medical encyclopedias may be published in print or electronic formats and are often used as a starting point for researching medical topics. They can provide reliable and accurate information on medical subjects, making them useful resources for healthcare professionals, students, and patients alike. Some well-known examples of medical encyclopedias include the Merck Manual and the Stedman's Medical Dictionary.

Avitaminosis is a medical condition that results from a deficiency of vitamins in the body. It occurs when an individual fails to consume sufficient amounts of essential vitamins, either due to poor nutrition, malabsorption, or increased requirements. The symptoms and severity of avitaminosis depend on the specific vitamin that is lacking and can range from mild to life-threatening.

For example:

* Avitaminosis A (deficiency of vitamin A) may lead to night blindness, dry skin, and impaired immunity.
* Avitaminosis B1 (deficiency of thiamine) can cause beriberi, a condition characterized by muscle weakness, peripheral neuropathy, and heart failure.
* Avitaminosis C (deficiency of ascorbic acid) may result in scurvy, which is marked by fatigue, swollen gums, joint pain, and anemia.
* Avitaminosis D (deficiency of calciferol) can lead to rickets in children or osteomalacia in adults, both of which are characterized by weakened bones and skeletal deformities.

To prevent avitaminosis, it is essential to maintain a balanced diet that includes all the necessary vitamins and minerals. In some cases, supplementation may be required to meet daily requirements, especially in individuals with medical conditions that affect nutrient absorption or increased needs. Always consult a healthcare professional before starting any supplement regimen.

Polyneuropathy is a medical condition that refers to the damage or dysfunction of peripheral nerves (nerves outside the brain and spinal cord) in multiple areas of the body. These nerves are responsible for transmitting sensory, motor, and autonomic signals between the central nervous system and the rest of the body.

In polyneuropathies, this communication is disrupted, leading to various symptoms depending on the type and extent of nerve damage. Commonly reported symptoms include:

1. Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
2. Muscle weakness and cramps
3. Loss of reflexes
4. Burning or stabbing pain
5. Balance and coordination issues
6. Increased sensitivity to touch
7. Autonomic dysfunction, such as bowel, bladder, or digestive problems, and changes in blood pressure

Polyneuropathies can be caused by various factors, including diabetes, alcohol abuse, nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune disorders, infections, toxins, inherited genetic conditions, or idiopathic (unknown) causes. The treatment for polyneuropathy depends on the underlying cause and may involve managing underlying medical conditions, physical therapy, pain management, and lifestyle modifications.

Alcoholism is a chronic and often relapsing brain disorder characterized by the excessive and compulsive consumption of alcohol despite negative consequences to one's health, relationships, and daily life. It is also commonly referred to as alcohol use disorder (AUD) or alcohol dependence.

The diagnostic criteria for AUD include a pattern of alcohol use that includes problems controlling intake, continued use despite problems resulting from drinking, development of a tolerance, drinking that leads to risky behaviors or situations, and withdrawal symptoms when not drinking.

Alcoholism can cause a wide range of physical and psychological health problems, including liver disease, heart disease, neurological damage, mental health disorders, and increased risk of accidents and injuries. Treatment for alcoholism typically involves a combination of behavioral therapies, medications, and support groups to help individuals achieve and maintain sobriety.

Alcoholism, also known as alcohol use disorder (AUD), is a chronic relapsing brain disorder characterized by an impaired ability to stop or control alcohol consumption despite adverse social, occupational, or health consequences. It is defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) as a problematic pattern of alcohol use leading to clinically significant impairment or distress, as manifested by at least two of the following, occurring within a 12-month period:

1. Alcohol is often taken in larger amounts or over a longer period than was intended.
2. There is a persistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control alcohol use.
3. A great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain, use, or recover from the effects of alcohol.
4. Craving, or a strong desire or urge to use alcohol, is present.
5. Recurrent alcohol use results in a failure to fulfill major role obligations at work, school, or home.
6. Alcohol use continues despite having persistent or recurrent social or interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of alcohol.
7. Important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of alcohol use.
8. Recurrent alcohol use is in situations in which it is physically hazardous.
9. Alcohol use is continued despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by alcohol.
10. Tolerance, as defined by either of the following:
a) A need for markedly increased amounts of alcohol to achieve intoxication or desired effect.
b) A markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of alcohol.
11. Withdrawal, as manifested by either of the following:
a) The characteristic withdrawal syndrome for alcohol (refer to DSM-5 for further details).
b) Alcohol (or a closely related substance, such as a benzodiazepine) is taken to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms.

The severity of alcohol use disorder is classified as mild, moderate, or severe based on the number of criteria met:

* Mild: 2-3 criteria met
* Moderate: 4-5 criteria met
* Severe: 6 or more criteria met

It's important to note that alcohol use disorder is a complex condition with various factors contributing to its development and course. If you or someone you know is struggling with alcohol use, it's crucial to seek professional help from a healthcare provider or a mental health specialist for an accurate assessment and appropriate treatment.

Familial amyloid neuropathies are a group of inherited disorders characterized by the accumulation of abnormal deposits of amyloid proteins in various tissues and organs of the body. These abnormal deposits can cause damage to nerves, leading to a peripheral neuropathy that affects sensation, movement, and organ function.

There are several types of familial amyloid neuropathies, each caused by different genetic mutations. The most common type is known as transthyretin-related hereditary amyloidosis (TTR-HA), which is caused by mutations in the TTR gene. Other types include apolipoprotein A1-related hereditary amyloidosis (APOA1-HA) and gelsolin-related amyloidosis (AGel-HA).

Symptoms of familial amyloid neuropathies can vary depending on the type and severity of the disorder. Common symptoms include:

* Numbness, tingling, or pain in the hands and feet
* Weakness or loss of muscle strength in the legs and arms
* Autonomic nervous system dysfunction, leading to problems with digestion, heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature regulation
* Carpal tunnel syndrome
* Eye abnormalities, such as vitreous opacities or retinal deposits
* Kidney disease

Familial amyloid neuropathies are typically inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, meaning that a child has a 50% chance of inheriting the mutated gene from an affected parent. Diagnosis is usually made through genetic testing and confirmation of the presence of amyloid deposits in tissue samples.

Treatment for familial amyloid neuropathies typically involves managing symptoms and slowing the progression of the disease. This may include medications to control pain, physical therapy to maintain muscle strength and mobility, and devices such as braces or wheelchairs to assist with mobility. In some cases, liver transplantation may be recommended to remove the source of the mutated transthyretin protein.
