1) favored the third diagnosis, which was strengthened by the immediate improvement of the quadriparesis and a complete improvement without residual paresis
by day 5 of admission (by potassium supplementation).
Depending on the inflammatory infiltrate location, patients might present with various nonspecific symptoms that include nerve compression in cavernous sinus, partial or complete ophthalmoplegia indicating superior orbital fissure involvement, or loss of vision indicating optic nerve involvement; isolated trochlear nerve paresis
has also been described (4).
Unilateral or localized Reinkes edema (pseudocyst) as a manifestation of vocal fold paresis
: The paresis
The tumor may present with asymmetrical sensory neural hearing loss with or without tinnitus, dizziness, and facial nerve paresis
Herein, we report a case of postherpetic paresis
and drop foot as an unusual complication in whom late clinical signs suggested previously undiagnosed diabetes mellitus.
The patient was determined to be in the chronic musculoskeletal and paretic phase of neuralgic amyotrophy (1) with residual biomechanical pain contributed via paresis
of the right serratus anterior.
Patients were classified into the following groups according to the degree of preoperative caloric paresis
: Group 1, normoreflexia, caloric paresis
between 0 and 12%; Group 2, hyporeflexia, caloric paresis
between 12% and 99%; and Group 3, areflexia, caloric paresis
is 100%, there was no response.
35% of patients undergoing thyroid surgery had malignant disease and were found to have unilateral or bilateral laryngeal nerve paresis
on preoperative EMG, none of which improved postoperatively.
The resulting paresis
gives an asymmetric smile, with less depression of the lower lip on the affected side since the depressor anguli oris and depressor labii are affected.
The findings underscore the potentially grave consequences of EV71, which "may be considered the new polio" because it causes long-term focal paresis
by damaging brainstem and spinal cord gray matter, said Dr.
Some of the rare conditions encountered were spastic paresis
Most of the paresis
(93~95%) occur unilaterally, but the remaining (5~7%) have developed bilaterally [5, 6].
