Immunoreactivities of p62, an ubiqutin-binding protein, in the spinal anterior horn cells of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
A poliomyelitislike syndrome likely involving spinal anterior horn cells is the most common mechanism of WNV-associated paralysis and is associated with significant short- and long-term illness and death.
Clinical and electrodiagnostic data suggested the involvement of spinal anterior horn cells, resulting in a poliomyelitis-like syndrome.
The most likely explanation for the initial AFP reports was difficulty in distinguishing flaccid or lower motor neuron weakness due to peripheral nervous system pathology (i.e., pathology at or distal to the anterior horn cells) from spastic or upper motor neuron weakness due to central nervous system pathology (i.e., pathology in the spinal cord or brain motor tracts).
The spread of active inflammation from the dorsal root ganglion to the anterior horn cells and anterior nerve roots and involvement of the motor nerve are postulated to be involved.78 Cioni et al.9 found ganglionic lesions combined with degeneration of the related sensory and motor roots and severe neuritis on pathological examination findings which can easily explain the clinical and electrophysiological signs.
In terms of the lower motor neurons, ALS affects the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord, leading to limb weakness.
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic, motor neuron disease characterized by wasting of the skeletal muscles caused by progressive degeneration of the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord.
Imaging of patients has suggested that the virus causes lesions in the spinal anterior horn cells, much like polio virus does.
"Autopsy studies have long told us that patients with CNS infection by the poliovirus needed to lose at least 50% of anterior horn cells before detectable muscle strength loss occurred," the authors wrote.
The virus can attack the anterior horn cells, causing acute flaccid paralysis resulting in a poliomyelitis-like syndrome.
