A group of recessively inherited diseases that feature progressive muscular atrophy and hypotonia. They are classified as type I (Werdnig-Hoffman disease), type II (intermediate form), and type III (Kugelberg-Welander disease). Type I is fatal in infancy, type II has a late infantile onset and is associated with survival into the second or third decade. Type III has its onset in childhood, and is slowly progressive.

Diseases characterized by a selective degeneration of the motor neurons of the spinal cord, brainstem, or motor cortex. Clinical subtypes are distinguished by the major site of degeneration. In AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS there is involvement of upper, lower, and brainstem motor neurons. In progressive muscular atrophy and related syndromes (see MUSCULAR ATROPHY, SPINAL) the motor neurons in the spinal cord are primarily affected. With progressive bulbar palsy (BULBAR PALSY, PROGRESSIVE), the initial degeneration occurs in the brainstem. In primary lateral sclerosis, the cortical neurons are affected in isolation.

Neuromyotonia: an unusual presentation of intrathoracic malignancy. (1/130)

A 48 year old woman is described who presented with increasing muscular rigidity and who was found to have a mediastinal tumour. Electrophysiological studies revealed that the muscular stiffness resulted from very high frequency motor unit activity which outlasted voluntary effort, and which was abolished by nerve block. The abnormal activity may have arisen at the anterior horn cell level. Marked improvement followed the administration of diphenylhydantoin.  (+info)

Rapid onset transverse myelitis in adolescence: implications for pathogenesis and prognosis. (2/130)

Five adolescents with transverse myelitis were reviewed. All presented with a rapid onset paralysis of the lower limbs and impairment of bladder control. The maximum disability developed between 10 minutes and six hours. There was no history of trauma, asthma, or prodromal illness. Investigations failed to demonstrate a vascular cause. Extensive spinal cord abnormalities were observed on magnetic resonance imaging. Electrophysiological investigations, performed in four cases, were all consistent with anterior horn cell damage. In all five adolescents there was poor recovery. The underlying pathogenesis of this rapid onset condition remains a subject of debate. Similarities with both transverse myelitis and fibrocartilaginous emboli are evident, widening the spectrum of conditions within the transverse myelitis umbrella. These observations suggest that in rapid onset "transverse myelitis" the combination of extensive hyperintensity on spinal cord neuroimaging with electrophysiological evidence of anterior horn cell involvement might have adverse prognostic significance.  (+info)

Age-related atrophy of motor axons in mice deficient in the mid-sized neurofilament subunit. (3/130)

Neurofilaments are central determinants of the diameter of myelinated axons. It is less clear whether neurofilaments serve other functional roles such as maintaining the structural integrity of axons over time. Here we show that an age-dependent axonal atrophy develops in the lumbar ventral roots of mice with a null mutation in the mid-sized neurofilament subunit (NF-M) but not in animals with a null mutation in the heavy neurofilament subunit (NF-H). Mice with null mutations in both genes develop atrophy in ventral and dorsal roots as well as a hind limb paralysis with aging. The atrophic process is not accompanied by significant axonal loss or anterior horn cell pathology. In the NF-M-null mutant atrophic ventral root, axons show an age-related depletion of neurofilaments and an increased ratio of microtubules/neurofilaments. By contrast, the preserved dorsal root axons of NF-M-null mutant animals do not show a similar depletion of neurofilaments. Thus, the lack of an NF-M subunit renders some axons selectively vulnerable to an age-dependent atrophic process. These studies argue that neurofilaments are necessary for the structural maintenance of some populations of axons during aging and that the NF-M subunit is especially critical.  (+info)

Norepinephrine facilitates inhibitory transmission in substantia gelatinosa of adult rat spinal cord (part 2): effects on somatodendritic sites of GABAergic neurons. (4/130)

BACKGROUND: It has been reported previously that norepinephrine, when applied to the spinal cord dorsal horn, excites a subpopulation of dorsal horn neurons, presumably inhibitory interneurons. In the current study, the authors tested whether norepinephrine could activate inhibitory interneurons, specifically those that are "GABAergic." METHODS: A transverse slice was obtained from a segment of the lumbar spinal cord isolated from adult male Sprague-Dawley rats. Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were made from substantia gelatinosa neurons using the blind patch-clamp technique. The effects of norepinephrine on spontaneous GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents were studied. RESULTS: In the majority of substantia gelatinosa neurons tested, norepinephrine (10-60 microM) significantly increased both the frequency and the amplitude of GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents. These increases were blocked by tetrodotoxin (1 microM). The effects of norepinephrine were mimicked by the alpha1-receptor agonist phenylephrine (10-80 microM) and inhibited by the alpha1-receptor-antagonist WB-4101 (0.5 microM). Primary-afferent-evoked polysynaptic excitatory postsynaptic potentials or excitatory postsynaptic currents in wide-dynamic-range neurons of the deep dorsal horn were also attenuated by phenylephrine (40 microM). CONCLUSION: The observations suggest that GABAergic interneurons possess somatodendritic alpha1 receptors, and activation of these receptors excites inhibitory interneurons. The alpha1 actions reported herein may contribute to the analgesic action of intrathecally administered phenylephrine.  (+info)

Long-term gene expression in the anterior horn motor neurons after intramuscular inoculation of a live herpes simplex virus vector. (5/130)

To clarify the feasibility of the herpes simplex virus (HSV) vector in expressing the foreign gene in the motor neuron, we inoculated a live attenuated HSV expressing beta-galactosidase (beta-gal) activity under a latency-associated transcript promoter in the right gastrocnemius muscle of rats. Expression of beta-gal activity was observed 5 days after inoculation in the bilateral anterior horn cells of the spinal cord that innervates the inoculation muscle. However, the spread of beta-gal activity was not observed in the inoculation muscle. Without significant pathological changes, the spread of beta-gal-expressing neurons was observed in the lumbosacral spinal cord until 14 days after inoculation with staining concentrated in the anterior horn cells. Ninety percent of the anterior horn motor neurons expressed beta-gal activity with expression continuing to at least 182 days after inoculation. Thus beta-gal activity was expressed in the bilateral anterior horn cells at the lumbosacral spinal cord that innervates the inoculated muscle for a long time, possibly a life-long period. This indicates that this recombinant HSV vector system to motor neurons may further improve the understanding and treatment of neurological diseases in motor neurons of the spinal cord.  (+info)

Depression of group Ia monosynaptic EPSPs in cat hindlimb motoneurones during fictive locomotion. (6/130)

The effects of fictive locomotion on monosynaptic EPSPs recorded in motoneurones and extracellular field potentials recorded in the ventral horn were examined during brainstem-evoked fictive locomotion in decerebrate cats. Composite homonymous and heteronymous EPSPs and field potentials were evoked by group I intensity (<= 2T) stimulation of ipsilateral hindlimb muscle nerves. Ninety-one of the 98 monosynaptic EPSPs were reduced in amplitude during locomotion (mean depression of the 91 was to 66 % of control values); seven increased in amplitude (to a mean of 121 % of control). Twenty-one of the 22 field potentials were depressed during locomotion (mean depression to 72 % of control). All but 14 Ia EPSPs were smaller during both the flexion and extension phases of locomotion than during control. In 35 % of the cases there was < 5 % difference between the amplitudes of the EPSPs evoked during the flexion and extension phases. In 27 % of the cases EPSPs evoked during flexion were larger than those evoked during extension. The remaining 38 % of EPSPs were larger during extension. There was no relation between either the magnitude of EPSP depression or the locomotor phase in which maximum EPSP depression occurred and whether an EPSP was recorded in a flexor or extensor motoneurone. The mean recovery time of both EPSP and field potential amplitudes following the end of a bout of locomotion was approximately 2 min (range, < 10 to > 300 s). Motoneurone membrane resistance decreased during fictive locomotion (to a mean of 61 % of control, n = 22). Because these decreases were only weakly correlated to EPSP depression (r 2 = 0.31) they are unlikely to fully account for this depression. The depression of monosynaptic EPSPs and group I field potentials during locomotion is consistent with the hypothesis that during fictive locomotion there is a tonic presynaptic regulation of synaptic transmission from group Ia afferents to motoneurones and interneurones. Such a reduction in neurotransmitter release would decrease group Ia monosynaptic reflex excitation during locomotion. This reduction may contribute to the tonic depression of stretch reflexes occurring in the decerebrate cat during locomotion.  (+info)

White matter injury in spinal cord ischemia: protection by AMPA/kainate glutamate receptor antagonism. (7/130)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Spinal cord ischemia is a serious complication of surgery of the aorta. NMDA receptor activation secondary to ischemia-induced release of glutamate is a major mechanism of neuronal death in gray matter. White matter injury after ischemia results in long-tract dysfunction and disability. The AMPA/kainate receptor mechanism has recently been implicated in white matter injury. METHODS: We studied the effects of AMPA/kainate receptor blockade on ischemic white matter injury in a rat model of spinal cord ischemia. RESULTS: Intrathecal administration of an AMPA/kainate antagonist, 6-nitro-7-sulfamoyl-(f)-quinoxaline-2, 3-dione (NBQX), 1 hour before ischemia reduced locomotor deficit, based on the Basso-Beattie-Bresnahan scale (0=total paralysis; 21=normal) (sham: 21+/-0, n=3; saline: 3.7+/-4.5, n=7; NBQX: 12. 7+/-7.0, n=7, P<0.05) 6 weeks after ischemia. Gray matter damage and neuronal loss in the ventral horn were evident after ischemia, but no difference was noted between the saline and NBQX groups. The extent of white matter injury was quantitatively assessed, based on axonal counts, and was significantly less in the NBQX as compared with the saline group in the ventral (sham: 1063+/-44/200x200 microm, n=3; saline: 556+/-104, n=7; NBQX: 883+/-103, n=7), ventrolateral (sham: 1060+/-135, n=3; saline: 411+/-66, n=7; NBQX: 676+/-122, n=7), and corticospinal tract (sham: 3391+/-219, n=3; saline: 318+/-23, n=7; NBQX: 588+/-103, n=7) in the white matter on day 42. CONCLUSIONS: Results indicate severe white matter injury in the spinal cord after transient ischemia. NBQX, an AMPA/kainate receptor antagonist, reduced ischemia-induced white matter injury and improved locomotor function.  (+info)

Delaying caspase activation by Bcl-2: A clue to disease retardation in a transgenic mouse model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. (8/130)

Molecular mechanisms of apoptosis may participate in motor neuron degeneration produced by mutant copper/zinc superoxide dismutase (mSOD1), the only proven cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Consistent with this, herein we show that the spinal cord of transgenic mSOD1 mice is the site of the sequential activation of caspase-1 and caspase-3. Activated caspase-3 and its produced beta-actin cleavage fragments are found in apoptotic neurons in the anterior horn of the spinal cord of affected transgenic mSOD1 mice; although such neurons are few, their scarcity should not undermine the potential importance of apoptosis in the overall mSOD1-related neurodegeneration. Overexpression of the anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2 attenuates neurodegeneration and delays activation of the caspases and fragmentation of beta-actin. These data demonstrate that caspase activation occurs in this mouse model of ALS during neurodegeneration. Our study also suggests that modulation of caspase activity may provide protective benefit in the treatment of ALS, a view that is consistent with our recent demonstration of caspase inhibition extending the survival of transgenic mSOD1 mice.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of etomidate on electrophysiological properties and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) of ventral horn neurons in the spinal cord. METHODS: The spinal cord containing lumbosacral enlargement was isolated from 19 neonatal SD rats aged 7-12 days. The spinal cord were sliced and digested with papain (0.18 g/30 mL artificial cerebrospinal fluid) and incubated for 40 min. At the ventral horn, acute mechanical separation of neurons was performed with fire-polished Pasteur pipettes, and perforated patch-clamp recordings combined with pharmacological methods were employed on the adherent healthy neurons. In current-clamp mode, the spontaneous action potential (AP) of the ventral horn neurons in the spinal cord was recorded. The effects of pretreatment with different concentrations of etomidate on AP recorded in the ventral horn neurons were examined. In the voltage-clamp mode, nicotine was applied to induce inward currents in the ventral horn neurons, and ...

Hopkins syndrome is a neurological disorder. Its cause has not been established, but its association with asthma exacerbations (usually with a respiratory infection as a trigger) has led to suspicion that the initial viral insult that causes the respiratory infection is also implicated in the subsequent paralysis. Herpes simplex virus type I DNA has been found in the cerebrospinal fluid of at least one patient diagnosed with Hopkins syndrome. In several cases, anti-viral antibody titers for echovirus, enterovirus, coxsackievirus and poliovirus types 1, 2 and 3 were specifically sought; all were negative., There is one reported case in which Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection was found in the patient. The syndrome appears to involve the spinal cord: specifically, the anterior horn cells subserving the affected muscles are often damaged. The evidence for anterior horn cell involvement comes from radiological ,, and electromyographical studies. In one case, a biopsy of an affected muscle revealed ...

The Anterior Column (anterior cornu, anterior horn), directed forward, is broad and of a rounded or quadrangular shape. Its posterior part is termed the base, and its anterior part the head, but these are not differentiated from each other by any well-defined constriction. It is separated from the surface of the medulla spinalis by a layer of white substance which is traversed by the bundles of the anterior nerve roots. In the thoracic region, the postero-lateral part of the anterior column projects lateralward as a triangular field, which is named the lateral column (columna lateralis; lateral cornu). ...

direct stimulation of the muscle at its tendon insertion and not through its nerve. The increase in galvanic irritability is coincident with increased mechanical irritability, or increased ideomuscular reflex, demonstrated by tapping the muscle. It is worth noting in this connection the interesting observations made by Langley15 that immediately following section of the nerve the paralyzed muscle is in a state of constant fibrillary twitching, during the time when rapid atrophy is taking place. The association of increased electrical and mechanical irritability, the constant fibrillarv activity, and the rapid atrophy when the nervous control of the muscle is removed are instructive as illustrating the loss of inhibition brought about by severing the connection between the anterior horn cell and the muscle. Practically it is possible to utilize this increase in irritabilitv in examination and treatment. The use of strong currents causes contraction of healthy muscles, which may be misinterpreted ...
AT is typically an AR childhood disease that one can read about in a 1980 edition of Adams and Victor. Variant AT occurs in older adults as a forme fruste perhaps of the pediatrics form. It is described in about 13 patients. Patients usually had young onset movement disorders, either choreoathetosis or resting tremor. Distal muscle weakness occurred in one patient. By age 27 patients began to experience progressive cerebellar atrophy with eventual development of dysarthria in all, continued movement disorders, nystagmus, dystonias and oculomotor apraxias. EMG/NCS showed either anterior horn cell involvement or sensorimotor polyneuropathy. Cerebellar atrophy on imaging affected vermis primarily ...

The present study shows that both pro-caspase-1 and -3 are expressed constitutively in the spinal cords of normal mice (see Fig.4) and that caspase-1 and -3 mRNA levels are unchanged or slightly increased during the course of the disease in transgenic mSOD1 mice (see Fig. 1). Immunolabeling for both pro-caspases was found in the neuropil and within numerous cells with a neuronal morphology throughout the gray matter of the spinal cords. Pro-caspase immunoreactivity was most intense in large motor neurons of the anterior horn, the known primary targets of the neurodegenerative process in ALS. In contrast to the abundance of pro-caspase-positive neurons in the anterior horn of normal animals, only a few of these neurons were seen in early symptomatic transgenic mSOD1 mice and even fewer in end-stage transgenic mSOD1 mice (see Fig. 4). This observation is consistent with the fact that spinal cord of symptomatic transgenic mSOD1 mice is the site of a dramatic loss of primarily, but not exclusively, ...
Interleukin 1 is a pleiotropic cytokine that mediates diverse functions through its receptor, type I interleukin 1 receptor (IL-1R1). Most previous studies have focused on the expression and function of IL-1R1 in immune cells. Here we performed a comprehensive mapping of IL-1R1 distribution in multiple peripheral tissues using our IL-1R1 reporter (IL-1R1GR/GR) mice. This method yielded the highest sensitivity of in situ detection of IL-1R1 mRNA and protein. Besides validating previously reported IL-1R1 expression in the endocrine tissues including pituitary and pancreas, our results refuted previously reported exclusive IL-1R1 expression in neurons of the spinal cord dorsal horn and dorsal root ganglia (DRG ...
Pathogenic variants in the GLE1 gene cause two related disorders, known as lethal congenital contracture syndrome 1 and lethal arthrogryposis with anterior horn cell disease. Lethal congenital contracture syndrome 1 is a fatal form of arthrogryposis, a disorder characterized by non-progressive joint contractures that are present at birth. The spinal cord is thin and the skeletal muscles are extremely small and underdeveloped. Fetuses affected by this disorder die before birth. Lethal arthrogryposis with anterior horn cell disease presents at birth with multiple joint contractures and facial anomalies. Anterior horn motor neurons, which control movement of the trunk and head, are degenerated. Death occurs in the first days of life. Specific GLE1 variants have been associated with the two diseases, and therefore the phenotype may be predicted in most patients based on the genetic variants inherited. ...

Late one night, sometime shortly after Olivia was born, one of my oldest and dearest friends called, planning to leave me a supportive voicemail. I surprised her, by picking up the phone. We spoke for quite awhile. I shared with her more details about Olivias status, her condition, my emotions, than I had with anyone else. See… shes one of my oldest friends, shes incredibly straight forward… and shes a nurse. Not only is she a nurse, but shes a nurse in an intensive care unit. The words surgical and trauma are in there somewhere too. Maybe in a different state - with adults, not neonates - but regardless, shes a STICU nurse so she sees a lot of crazy, messed up shit on the regular.. She said a lot that night, but one of the more simple, sticking points was: we have to be prepared for good days and bad days.. Maybe a lot of good days followed by a couple of bad days. Maybe some bad days followed by just one, glorious, good day. But that it was going to be a journey. An up and down, and ...
The distribution of cholinergic neurons was studied in painted and red-eared turtles using antisera against choline acetyltransferase (ChAT). The results showed that the organization of cholinergic systems in the central nervous system of turtles was remarkably similar to that previously described in diverse other species. For example, the present studies revealed the presence of cholinergic neurons in the striatum, the basal telencephalon, the isthmo-tectal system, and a region of cells near the cerebellar peduncle. The motoneurons of the III, IV, V, VI, VII, X and XII cranial nerves and the spinal ventral horn were also shown to be cholinergic. Additional cholinergic neurons were observed in the hypothalamus and rhombencephalic reticular formation. These results help to clarify the precise extent and location of the major cholinergic cell groups of the turtle brain, thereby adding to our understanding of the organization of the turtle nervous system. The results also reveal that the cholinergic
Proximal spinal muscular atrophy is an autosomal recessive disorder with an overall incidence of 1 in 10000 live births and a carrier frequency of 1 in 50. This severe neuromuscular disease is characterized by a degeneration and loss of alpha motor neurons of the spinal cord anterior horn cells, which results in progressive symmetrical weakness, atrophy of the proximal voluntary muscles, and infant death. Here, we present a new, rapid, simple and high reliable method to detect the SMN1 deletion and to determine the copy number of the SMN1 and SMN2 by denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC). We demonstrate that this assay is able to accurately distinguish 2 gene copies from 4 gene copies and it can identify SMA carriers and normal populations by the accurate determination of SMN copy number.. Fecal DNA testing is a promising tool for colorectal cancer screening. Researchers have shown that DNA to be a good marker since it is stable in the stool; it shed continuously; and, ...
Background:Monomelic Amyotrophy is a rare self-limiting motor neuron disease affecting anterior horn cells of spinal cord. It usually has a juvenile onset, male predominance, single upper limb involvement (although bilateral asymmetric or even symmetric involvement has been reported) and is usually described in India and Far-East Asia with few reports from North America. Case Report:A North-American Hispanic female with monomelic amyotrophy simultaneously involving the right upper and the left lower extremities with unusual sequence of muscle involvement in the lower limb, namely involving only the anterior and medial compartments of the thigh. Conclusions:Although monomelic amyotrophy has several well known phenotypes or patterns of muscular involvement in certain races or geographical distribution, unusual or unreported presentations and topography of muscular involvement may still be possible and the disease should be considered regardless the race and geographical area.

The Spg7-/- mice created by Ferreirinha et al. (2) develop a neuropathologic phenotype of a distal axonopathy characterized by swelling and degeneration in spinal and peripheral axons. Although the axonopathy does not occur until 8 months of age, Spg7-/- mice develop mitochondrial abnormalities in their axons at 4.5 months of age, a time when they already exhibit motor deficits as evidenced by impaired ability to maintain their balance on a rotating rod. These mitochondrial abnormalities include hypertrophy, concentric cristae, herniations, and the appearance of giant mitochondria. Mitochondria with concentric cristae are often seen in normal and pathologic conditions with increased cellular metabolic activity.. Two additional striking findings emerge from this study: at every age studied, the percentage of axons containing abnormal mitochondria greatly exceeded the number of swollen or degenerated axons; and abnormal mitochondria were present in synaptic terminals in the anterior horn of the ...
The lethal congenital contracture syndrome (LCCS, Herva disease) is an autosomal recessive syndrome that causes prenatal death of affected fetuses before the 32nd gestational week. Prenatal diagnosis is based on fetal akinesia, which is detectable in ultrasonography after the 14th gestational week. The akinesia develops due to degenaration of anterior horn motor neurons, which leads to multiple contractures of the joints. The other key features are slow growth, hydrops in early pregnancy and dysmorphic features.
A pure lower motor neurone syndrome affecting the upper limbs due to degenerative cervical spine disease is well described (cervical spondylotic amyotrophy); however, the existence of a similar syndrome affecting the lower limbs and due to thoracolumbar spinal cord compression is controversial.2. Cervical spondylotic amyotrophy is characterised by weakness and wasting of the upper limbs without sensory or lower limb involvement. It can be further classified depending on the muscles involved into a proximal (scapular, deltoid and biceps) and a distal type (triceps forearm and hand). Radiologically, the proximal subtype corresponds to lesions at the C4/5 intervertebral level resulting in damage to anterior horn cells supplying C5/6 nerve root innervated muscles. The distal subtype corresponds to cord lesions at either C5/6 or C6/7 that affect anterior horn cells innervating C7-T1 nerve root innervated muscles.2 These anatomical correlations help explain the pathomechanism of disease for the two ...

Numerous theories have been proposed to explain post-polio syndrome. Despite this, there are currently no absolutely defined causes of PPS. The most widely accepted theory of the mechanism behind the disorder is neural fatigue. A motor unit is a nerve cell (or neuron) and the muscle fibers it activates. Poliovirus attacks specific neurons in the brainstem and the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord, generally resulting in the death of a substantial fraction of the motor neurons controlling skeletal muscles. In an effort to compensate for the loss of these neurons, surviving motor neurons sprout new nerve terminals to the orphaned muscle fibers. The result is some recovery of movement and the development of enlarged motor units.[3]. The neural fatigue theory proposes that the enlargement of the motor neuron fibers places added metabolic stress on the nerve cell body to nourish the additional fibers. After years of use, this stress may be more than the neuron can handle, leading to the ...
Lower Motor Neuron Weakness This pattern results from disorders of cell bodies of lower motor neurons in the brainstem motor nuclei and the anterior horn of the spinal cord, or from dysfunction of the axons of these neurons as they pass to skeletal muscle (Fig. 232). Weakness is due to a decrease in the number of muscle fibers that can be activated, through a loss of α motor neurons or disruption of their connections to muscle. Loss of γmotor neurons does not cause weakness but decreases tension on the muscle spindles, which decreases muscle tone and attenuates the stretch reflexes... ...

The study of the epidemiology of infantile paralysis must take into consideration three types of the disease, namely: 1. The mild abortive type representing a systematic infection. 2. The non-paralytic meningic type representing invasion of the central nervous system by the virus. 3. The paralytic type indicating destruction of the cells in the anterior horn of the spinal cord.
The outer edges of each meniscus attach to the tibia by the short coronary ligaments. Other short ligaments attach the ends of the menisci to the tibial surface. The inner edges are free to move because they are not attached to the bone. This lets the menisci change shape as the joint moves. The front portion of the meniscus is referred to as the anterior horn, the back portion is the posterior horn, and the middle section is the body.. Under the microscope, the meniscus is fibrocartilage that has strength and flexibility from collagen fiber. Its resilience is due to the high water content in the spaces between the cells. There is not much blood supply to the menisci. Blood flows only to the outer edges from small arteries around the joint. The poor blood supply to the inner portion of the meniscus makes it difficult for the meniscus to heal.. ...

OMIM : 56 X-linked infantile spinal muscular atrophy (XL-SMA) is characterized by neonatal onset of severe hypotonia, areflexia, and multiple congenital contractures, known as arthrogryposis, associated with loss of anterior horn cells and infantile death (summary by Ramser et al., 2008). Historically, Hall et al. (1982) distinguished at least 3 clinical varieties of X-linked arthrogryposis. (1) One family had a severe lethal form with severe contractures, scoliosis, chest deformities, hypotonia, micrognathia, and death from respiratory insufficiency by age 3 months. Apparently progressive loss of anterior horn cells was the cause. (2) Two families had moderately severe AMC associated with ptosis, microphallus, cryptorchidism, inguinal hernias, and normal intelligence. Nonprogressive intrauterine myopathy appeared to be the cause. (3) In 2 families and a sporadic case, the disorder took the form of a resolving AMC, with mild to moderate contractures improving dramatically with time, normal ...

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is one of the most common fatal autosomal recessive disorders, characterised by progressive degeneration of anterior horn cells. Before the advent of genetic testing, the diagnosis of SMA was based on clinical, histopathological, and electrophysiological features. In 1992, the International SMA Consortium defined diagnostic criteria of proximal SMA based on clinical findings.1 In SMA type I (severe; Werdnig-Hoffmann disease), affected persons have onset of symptoms before 6 months of age and are never able to sit without support. Electromyography demonstrates denervation features. In early 1995, the candidate gene, the survival motor neuron (SMN) gene, was identified, making the confirmation of SMA by DNA analysis possible.2 With the availability of a genetic test for SMA, many investigators are refining the diagnostic criteria published by the Consortium. Studies involving hundreds of patients with proximal SMA have disclosed a subset of patients who fulfill at ...
The anterior grey column (also called the anterior cornu, anterior horn of spinal cord or ventral horn) is the front column of grey matter in the spinal cord. It is one of the three grey columns. The anterior grey column contains motor neurons that affect the skeletal muscles while the posterior grey column receives information regarding touch and sensation. The anterior grey column is the column where the cell bodies of alpha motor neurons are located. The anterior grey column, directed forward, is broad and of a rounded or quadrangular shape. Its posterior part is termed the base, and its anterior part the head, but these are not differentiated from each other by any well-defined constriction. It is separated from the surface of the medulla spinalis by a layer of white substance which is traversed by the bundles of the anterior nerve roots. In the thoracic region, the postero-lateral part of the anterior column projects laterally as a triangular field, which is named the lateral grey column. ...
The hoof is a highly specialised horny shell composed of three layers, the stratum externum (outer layer of the wall,) stratum medium and stratum internum (middle and inner layers.) The hoof covers the sensitive bones, nerves, connective tissue and vascular tissue of the forefoot. The primary function of the hoof is to protect the underlying structures, and to increase the surface area for the dissipation of locomotor forces.. The hoof wall itself is composed mainly of keratinised tissue representing the modified epidermis of the skin. However the innermost layer of horn adjacent to the corium, is a growing layer consisting of horn cells. Cells from this layer are continually dividing to produce horn cells which are added to the bulk of the horn. Growth occurs in a tubular fashion from the surface of papillae projecting from the coronary corium. The hoof wall is therefore formed of tubules of horn tissue held together by non-tubular horn. Keratin Sulphate (a proteinaceous material with a high ...
