A motor neuron disease marked by progressive weakness of the muscles innervated by cranial nerves of the lower brain stem. Clinical manifestations include dysarthria, dysphagia, facial weakness, tongue weakness, and fasciculations of the tongue and facial muscles. The adult form of the disease is marked initially by bulbar weakness which progresses to involve motor neurons throughout the neuroaxis. Eventually this condition may become indistinguishable from AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS. Fazio-Londe syndrome is an inherited form of this illness which occurs in children and young adults.

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.

Antiganglioside antibody in patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome who show bulbar palsy as an initial symptom. (1/48)

OBJECTIVES: To identify valuable antiganglioside antibodies that support the diagnosis of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) and its variants in patients showing bulbar palsy as an initial symptom. METHODS: Medical records of 602 patients with GBS or its variants were reviewed. Fifteen patients had bulbar palsy as an initial symptom. Serum antibodies against GM1, GM1b, GD1a, GalNAc-GD1a, GT1a, and GQ1b were examined in 13 of them. RESULTS: Serum antiganglioside antibodies were positive in 11 (85%) patients. IgG anti-GT1a (n=8; 62%) and anti-GM1b (n=7; 54%) antibodies were often present, whereas all the patients had low or no anti-GM1 antibody activity. High anti-GD1a and anti-GQ1b IgG antibody titres were also present in some patients, but most had higher IgG antibody titres to GM1b or GT1a. All five patients with high IgG antibody titre to GM1b or GT1a only had had antecedent diarrhoea. Some patients with pharyngeal-cervical-brachial weakness (PCB) had IgG antibody to GT1a which did not cross react with GQ1b. Other patients with PCB had antibody to GT1a which cross reacted with GQ1b or antibody to GM1b, but anti-GM1b and anti-GT1a antibodies were not associated with the presence of bulbar palsy. All the patients who had no IgG antiganglioside antibodies recovered completely. CONCLUSIONS: Measurement of serum IgG anti-GT1a and anti-GM1b antibodies gives helpful support for the diagnosis of GBS and its variants when there is early involvement of the oropharyngeal function independently of other neurological findings which appear as the illness progresses.  (+info)

Worster-Drought syndrome, a mild tetraplegic perisylvian cerebral palsy. Review of 47 cases. (2/48)

A retrospective case-note analysis was undertaken of 47 children with a congenital upper motor neurone bulbar palsy (excluding pure speech dyspraxia) to clarify the phenotype of Worster-Drought syndrome (WDS) and to record its associated features and complications. The results revealed that the study children had significant bulbar problems (with 80% still needing a modified diet and a similar number using augmentative communication methods at last review). There were also high rates of predictable bulbar complications (86% had dribbling, 60% had glue ear, gastro-oesophageal reflux in 40%, history of poor nutrition in 40% and aspiration in 40%). Most of the children had additional complex impairments (91% had mild pyramidal tetraplegia, 81% learning difficulties, 60% congenital defects, 41% neuropsychiatric problems and 28% epilepsy). Over half of the children had significant medical problems in the first year, but mean age at diagnosis was 6 years. There were no obvious causes in pregnancy or birth. Six children had a family history of WDS and 32% (12/37) had abnormal neuroimaging including five with bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria. In our experience, WDS is not uncommon, is relatively easily diagnosed and is crucial not to miss as the management of these children's multiple impairments is complex and requires a careful team approach. WDS falls clearly within the cerebral palsies as a syndrome that includes motor impairment arising from static damage to the brain in early life. The common presence of cognitive, behavioural and seizure impairments strongly supports the cerebral cortical (presumably perisylvian) localization. Its core elements are a suprabulbar paresis, a mild spastic tetraplegia and a significant excess of cognitive and behavioural impairments and epilepsy. The complete overlap in phenotype between WDS and the bilateral perisylvian syndrome leads us to propose that they are the same condition. WDS is startlingly absent from epidemiological studies of the cerebral palsies and rarely diagnosed, presumably because of lack of clinical awareness of the condition and lack of major gross motor impairments.  (+info)

Motor neuron diseases in the university hospital of Fortaleza (Northeastern Brazil): a clinico-demographic analysis of 87 cases. (3/48)

In this retrospective (1980-1998) study, we have analyzed clinico-demographically, from the records of the University Hospital of Fortaleza (Brazil), a group of 87 patients showing signs and symptoms of motor neuron diseases (MNDs). Their diagnosis was determined clinically and laboratorially. The WFN criteria were used for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) diagnosis. The clinico-demographic analysis of the 87 cases of MNDs showed that 4 were diagnosed as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), 5 cases as ALS subsets: 2 as progressive bulbar paralysis (PBP), 2 as progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) and 1 as monomelic amyotrophy (MA), and 78 cases of ALS. The latter comprised 51 males and 27 females, with a mean age of 42.02 years. They were sub-divided into 4 groups according to age: from 15 to 29 years (n= 17), 30 to 39 years (n= 18), 40 to 69 years (n= 39) and 70 to 78 years (n= 4). From the 78 ALS patients, 76 were of the classic sporadic form whilst only 2 were of the familial form. The analysis of the 87 patients with MNDs from the University Hospital of Fortaleza showed a predominance of ALS patients, with a high number of cases of juvenile and early onset adult sporadic ALS.  (+info)

Rehabilitation for postpolio sequelae. (5/48)

BACKGROUND: Postpolio sequelae (PPS) are new, late manifestations that occur many years after the initial poliomyelitis infection. Recurrence of symptoms and fear of reactivation of the polio virus is particularly distressing to polio survivors. OBJECTIVE: This article outlines the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and management of PPS disabilities using a case vignette. DISCUSSION: Clinical features of PPS include fatigue, joint and muscle pain, new muscular weakness and bulbar symptoms. Diagnosis can be complicated particularly in nonparalytic cases of poliomyelitis. Disabilities in PPS may not be obvious to the observer but significantly affect the quality of life of the PPS patient. Previous rehabilitation intervention focussed on physical effort and determination to overcome disability at all costs. The treatment in PPS is now modified, and aggressive physical measures that may exacerbate muscle weakness are avoided. Most disabilities in PPS can be well managed with rehabilitation interventions that address limitations in patient activities of daily living, mobility and cardiopulmonary fitness.  (+info)

Subacute bulbar palsy as the initial sign of follicular thyroid cancer. (6/48)

We report a 64-year-old woman with follicular thyroid cancer found by subacute bulbar palsy. Progressive bulbar palsy (PBP) was considered the most likely diagnosis, because no abnormal finding was detected on brain CT and blood test except for the decrease of free T4. An echogram of the thyroid revealed a small nodule which was shown to be class IIb by fine needle biopsy. However, 201Tl scintillation examination showed skull base metastasis. Follicular thyroid cancer sometimes seems to manifest as a distant metastasis with no clinically evident thyroid lesion. This case suggested the importance of a detailed survey for malignancy, when subacute bulbar palsy is seen.  (+info)

Congenital oculo-bulbar palsy. (7/48)

A girl developed progressive weakness of bulbar and ocular muscles starting before the age of two years. Electromyography revealed a widespread subclinical myopathy. An intercostal muscle biopsy showed complex abnormalities including occasional neurofilamentous accumulations and honeycomb-like membranous material in terminal axons. Endplates were small and some secondary synaptic clefts were abnormally deep. Acetylcholine receptors extended unusually deeply into the clefts of the junctional folds. Muscle fibres showed subsarcolemmal vacuolation at some places. This form of congenital oculo-bulbar palsy does not appear to have been described previously.  (+info)

The Scottish Motor Neuron Disease Register: a prospective study of adult onset motor neuron disease in Scotland. Methodology, demography and clinical features of incident cases in 1989. (8/48)

The Scottish Motor Neuron Disease Register (SMNDR) is a prospective, collaborative, population based study of motor neuron disease (MND) in Scotland. The register started in January 1989 with the aim of studying the clinical and epidemiological features of MND by prospectively identifying incident patients. It is based on a system of registration by recruitment from multiple sources, followed by the collection of complete clinical data and follow up, mainly through general practitioners. In this report the register's methodology and the demography and incidence data for the first year of study are presented. One hundred and fourteen newly diagnosed patients were identified in 1989 giving a crude incidence for Scotland of 2.24/100,000/year. Standardised incidence ratios showed a non-significant trend towards lower rates in north eastern regions and island areas.  (+info)

Infantile Progressive Bulbar palsy is a rare type of progressive bulbar palsy that occurs in children. The disease exists in both rapid and slow onsets, and involves inflammation of the gray matter of the bulb.[1] Infantile PBP is a disease that manifests itself in two forms: Fazio Londe syndrome (FL) and Brown-Vialetto-Van-Laere syndrome (BVVL).[2] ...
Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere syndrome represents a phenotypic spectrum of motor, sensory, and cranial nerve neuropathy, often with ataxia, optic atrophy and respiratory problems leading to ventilator-dependence. Loss-of-function mutations in two riboflavin transporter genes, SLC52A2 and SLC52A3, have recently been linked to Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere syndrome. However, the genetic frequency, neuropathology and downstream consequences of riboflavin transporter mutations are unclear. By screening a large cohort of 132 patients with early-onset severe sensory, motor and cranial nerve neuropathy we confirmed the strong genetic link between riboflavin transporter mutations and Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere syndrome, identifying 22 pathogenic mutations in SLC52A2 and SLC52A3, 14 of which were novel. Brain and spinal cord neuropathological examination of two cases with SLC52A3 mutations showed classical symmetrical brainstem lesions resembling pathology seen in mitochondrial disease, including severe neuronal ...

Investigators at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, UK, and multiple centers internationally report the response to high-dose oral riboflavin therapy in 18 patients from 13 families with mutations in SLC5ZA2, encoding riboflavin transporter RTVT2, a new causative gene for Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere syndrome (BVVLS), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder leading to death in childhood. BVVLS is characterized by cranial neuropathies, pontobulbar palsy, sensorimotor neuropathy manifesting with sensory ataxia, weakness of upper limbs and axial muscles, with preserved strength of lower limbs, optic atrophy, sensorineural hearing loss, and respiratory insufficiency. Riboflavin therapy resulted in significant sustained clinical and biochemical improvement in 2 patients and preliminary response in 13 patients. [1]. COMMENTARY. BVVLS is a similar disorder to Fazio Londe syndrome caused by subtly different mutations of the same gene, and with the additional clinical feature of sensorineural deafness ...

Accumulating evidence shows that SQSTM1 plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which represent a neurodegenerative disease continuum. Here, we report a novel SQSTM1 variant in a patient presenting with progressive nonfluent aphasia (PNFA) and progressive bulbar palsy (PBP). Relevant literature about FTD and FTD-ALS caused by SQSTM1 mutation was reviewed to better understand its clinical features.We collected data from a 66-year-old male patient with a novel heterozygous variant (c.995C , G, p.S332X) in the SQSTM1 gene who was diagnosed with PNFA and PBP and performed a PubMed literature search using the advanced research criteria: [(frontotemporal lobar degeneration) OR (frontotemporal dementia) OR (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) OR (motor neuron disease)] AND (SQSTM1). The clinical features of FTD and FTD-ALS related to SQSTM1 mutation were summarized based on previous cases and our new case.The initial symptom ...

YEL-AND is a serious but rarely fatal adverse event. YEL-AND manifests as several distinct clinical syndromes, including meningoencephalitis (neurotropic disease), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), and bulbar palsy (91,92). Meningoencephalitis occurs as a result of direct YF vaccine viral invasion of the central nervous system (CNS) with infection of the meninges and/or the brain. The other neurologic syndromes (e.g., GBS and ADEM) represent autoimmune manifestations in which antibodies and/or T-cells produced in response to the vaccine cross-react with neuronal epitopes and lead to central or peripheral nerve damage.. Through the attenuation process, YF vaccine virus strains were determined to develop neurovirulence (93,94). Early in the vaccines history, multiple cases of encephalitis associated with vaccine administration were noted and determined to be attributable to too few or too many passages of the virus during the attenuation process. This ...

Based within the WA Centre for Cancer and Palliative Care, the study looks at whether the process of reflecting on ones life in a recorded interview can relieve psychological distress as a person faces the end of their life. This type of therapy (coined dignity therapy) was developed in Canada by Dr Harvey Max Chochinov and was originally used with cancer patients and delivered good results, Ms Bentley said. So far, 24 people with MND have taken part in the study and in a few cases, interviews have taken place via email as some people with MND can lose the ability to speak. Im hoping to encourage another 10 people to take part in the study before analysing the results and bringing the study to a conclusion early next year.. According to Ms Bentley, dignity therapy could be particularly effective for not only MND sufferers, but also their carers.. MND is a family disease, and family carers carry an exceptional burden by providing extraordinary amounts of care. Previous research in ...

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare neurological disorder which causes progressive paralysis, starting from the feet and progressing up throughout the rest of the affected persons body (ascending paraplegia). It occurs when the bodys immune system attacks the peripheral nerves in the body. This is known as an autoimmune disease and can be triggered following a surgical infection, or by a flu-like illness or stomach infection. As the immune system fights off the infection, it mistakenly attacks the peripheral nerves.

IF YOURE LOOKING TO SUPPORT MIKE PASQUALE AND TEAM GOODWILL FOR THEIR RUNNING OF THE ST. ANTHONY TRIATHLON, YOUVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!!!Click the big DONATE button to help Team Goodwill raise money to battle Angelman Syndrome (AS), a rare neurological disorder on the Autism spectrum that occurs in approximately one of every 15,000 births.Funding for AS is woefully small despite the increased interest in AS, recent scientific advances and the potential for insight into other related disorders. The National Institutes on Health (NIH) will fund research for over $2.5 billion in the area of aging and $246 million was projected for Alzheimers disease alone for 2012. On the other hand, Angelman Syndrome is grouped with other rare human disorders and has no earmarked funding for 2013, so it can use all the help from charitable groups like ours that it can get.Theres good reason for hope and optimism for an AS cure and therapeutic treatments. Exceptional progress has been made in scientific research

The present studies demonstrate that low concentrations of H2O2 can decrease levels of tetanic and NN-LTP, as well as completely block the formation of LTPm resulting from exposure to CCh. H2O2 is formed in normal brain tissue, and its ambient concentration in neurons is kept low primarily by a fast breakdown by glutathione peroxidase (in neurons) or catalase (in many other cell types). H2O2 can, however, reach high levels in brains of aged animals, owing to a change in the balance between its production and breakdown. The production of H2O2 is catalyzed by the enzyme CuZn-superoxide dismutase, which is a ubiquitous enzyme. In fact, levels of H2O2 need not be very high to have an effect. We observe a total suppression of LTPm with added H2O2 in the micromolar concentration range, which is 20 times lower than doses used by others to observe effects on LTP in the hippocampus (Pellmar et al., 1991). These micromolar concentrations can indeed be reached in the aged brain, as shown previously (Sohal ...
