Combined upper and lower motor neuron
lesions cause so-called alternating hemiplegia, because the deficit of upper motor neuron is manifested contralaterally while of the lower motor neuron
Lower motor neuron
disease patients unable to maintain adequate ventilation require rapid intervention, possibly intubation with intermittent positive pressure ventilation or maintenance via mechanical ventilator.
Patients should also undergo a neurologic examination to seek evidence of upper and lower motor neuron
In lower motor neuron
disorders, compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) are reduced with normal or slightly slowed motor conduction velocities consistent with axonal loss.
vivax malaria associated bilateral lower motor neuron
Lower motor neuron
type of facial paralysis is not always synonymous with bell's palsy and secondary causes should always be ruled out by a thorough clinical examination and a comprehensive investigation panel.
Children with leukemia who develop lower motor neuron
lesion manifested as hypotonia, hyporeflexia or diminished power are usually diagnosed to have peripheral neuropathy due to vincristine; a vinca alkaloid chemotherapeutic agent used in all phases of therapy.
On the basis of the location of motor neurons in the body, a neuron is either a UMN or a lower motor neuron
. A UMN arises in the motor cortex of the brain and extends to the spinal cord.
Gray matter myelitis, which the team considers a vasculopathy, presents with lower motor neuron
signs: flaccidity and hyporeflexia, in addition to urinary retention and fever (Arthritis Rheum.
It is characterized by a deterioration of upper and lower motor neuron
cells.Currently, there is no one test or procedure to ultimately establish the diagnosis of ALS.
Immunocytochemical and ultrastructural study of the motor cortex in patients with lower motor neuron
Acute flaccid paralysis is predominantly a lower motor neuron
