Saraf Perifer & Otot

Disorders of the Motor Unit

Motor neuron disease Peripheral nerve disorders Neuromuscular junction disease Muscle disease

Saraf Perifer & Otot

Motor Neuron Disease

Diseases that can involve Betz cells of the motor cortex, the lower CN motor nuclei, the CST, and/or the anterior horn cells
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Progressive bulbar palsy Progressive muscular atrophy, spinal muscular atrophy Primary lateral sclerosis

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)

Loss of motor neurons in the cortex, brainstem and spinal cord Mix of upper motor neuron and lower motor neuron findings
Weakness, atrophy, fasciculations Slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath

Can start in any extremity or the bulbar musculature Relentlessly progressive

50 % dead in 3 years, 80% dead in 5 years, 5-10% live more than 10 years Death usually from respiratory failure Etiology still only theoretical
Excess glutamate Oxidative stress Free radicals Mitochondrial dysfunction

Peripheral Nerve Disorders

Mononeuropathy Mononeuritis multiplex Polyneuropathy (peripheral neuropathy)

Peripheral Nerve Disorders

The spectrum of peripheral nerve disorders includes
Mononeuropathies (entrapment, trauma, etc)
CTS, Bells palsy (?)

Mononeuritis multiplex (DM, vasculitis) Plexopathies (immune, neoplastic) Radiculopathies (discs, immune) Peripheral Neuropathies

Normal peripheral motor nerve anatomy and responses to injury

(Quan, 1999)

Peripheral Nerve Disorders

Pattern of weakness and sensory loss conforms to the distribution of a single nerve
Carpal tunnel syndrome Peroneal palsy at the fibular head

Mononeuritis multiplex
Multiple nerves affected in a random pattern
Acute onset, frequently painful Diabetes mellitus, vasculitis

Polyneuropathy (peripheral neuropathy)

Distal, symmetric

Can affect different types of fibers
Autonomic Motor Sensory
Large well myelinated Small poorly myelinated or unmyelinated

Symptoms of a Polyneuropathy
Sensory symptoms
Start in feet, move proximally Hand sxs appear when LE sxs up to knees Positive
Pins and needles Tingling Burning

Numbness Deadness Like Im walking with thick socks on

Polyneuropathy Symptoms
Weakness first in feet
Tripping Turn ankles

Progress to weakness in hands

Trouble opening jars Trouble turning key in lock

Polyneuropathy: Signs
Distal sensory loss
Large fiber Small fiber

Distal weakness and atrophy Decreased or absent reflexes

Ankle jerks lost first

Classification of Polyneuropathies
By types of fibers involved
Pure sensory Sensory motor Pure motor Autonomic

By pathology
Demyelinating Axonal Mixed

By tempo
Acute Subacute Chronic

Acute Polyneuropathies
Guillain Barre Syndrome Porphyria
Neuropathy, psychiatric disorder, unexplained GI complaints

Glue sniffing (n-hexane) Arsenic

Guillain Barre Syndrome

Definition of GBS
acute demyelinating disorder, primarily involving the peripheral nervous system (PNS) degree and location of disability depends on the myelinated nerves involved: MOTOR

Guillain Barre Syndrome

an inflammatory disease of the peripheral nervous system characterized by lymphocytic and macrophagic infiltration with destruction of myelin. The condition is often designated as the Landry-Guillain-Barr-Strohl syndrome in recognition of the descriptions provided by these authors

Guillain Barre Syndrome

Guillain Barre Syndrome

Most common cause of rapidly progressive weakness Demyelinating neuropathy Ascending weakness which may include cranial neuropathies Exam reveals symmetric weakness with areflexia and large fiber sensory loss Bowel and bladder usually preserved

Guillain Barre Syndrome

Respiratory failure can be precipitous Other causes of morbidity and mortality
Autonomic instability DVT Infection

Immune mediated, may be post infectious Treatment

Plasma exchange Intravenous immunoglobulin

Guillain Barre Syndrome

Subacute Polyneuropathies
Can be isolated to peripheral nerves or part of a more systemic process

May be presenting symptom of the cancer

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy

With or without a gammopathy

Toxins Drug

Chronic Polyneuropathies
Diabetes mellitus Chronic renal failure Chronic liver failure Thyroid disease

B12 deficiency

HIV Leprosy


Evaluation of a Polyneuropathy
Lab work Nerve conduction study/electromyography
Distinguishes between axonal and demyelinating Helps ascertain severity

Nerve biopsy
Frequently non-diagnostic Can establish the dx in certain disorders, such as vasculitis and amyloidosis

Saraf Perifer & Otot

Disorders of the Neuromuscular Junction

Lambert Eaton myasthenic syndrome Botulism

Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia Gravis
Antibody that alters the acetylcholine receptor
Binding Blocking Modulating

Antibody detected in
50% of pts with pure ocular MG 90-95% of pts with generalized MG

Clinical Manifestation of MG
Sxs worsen with exercise, end of day (Fatigue) Ocular
Droopy eyelids (ptosis) Double vision (diplopia)

Extremity weakness
Arms > legs

Dysarthria Dysphagia

Shortness of breath

Approach to treating MG
Remove any exacerbating factors
Infections, medication, endocrine disease

Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors Plasma exchange/ intravenous immunoglobulin Thymectomy Immunosuppressants

Prednisone Imuran (azathioprin)

Saraf Perifer & Otot


Clinical Manifestations of Myopathies

Proximal muscle weakness
Waddling gait Difficulty climbing stairs Trouble lifting arms over head

Cramps with the metabolic myopathies Myalgias with the inflammatory myopathies Swallowing and breathing difficulties, when present, are usually late

Classification of Muscle Disease

Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy Myotonic Dystrophy

Congenital Myopathies
Glycogenoses Mitochondrial

Acquired Myopathies
Polymyositis Dermatomyositis Inclusion body myositis Drug related

Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy

X-linked recessive Absence of dystrophin protein Slow to reach motor milestones, sxs by age 5
All walk, may never run End up in wheelchair by age 10-12
Steroids may delay time until wheelchair bound

Muscles replaced by fat may appear hypertrophic Frequently mildly mentally retarded Life expectancy < 20 years with death related to respiratory failure or cardiomyopathy

Presents with proximal muscle weakness in 92% Myalgias in 25% Associated symptoms may include fever, weight loss Slightly increased risk of cancer
Bladder, lung, lymphoma

Biopsy of muscle confirms diagnosis Treatment with immunosuppression

Prednisone Methotrexate

Evaluation of the Patient with Suspected Muscle Disease

Muscle enzymes (CPK, aldolase) Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR or sed rate) if suspect inflammatory disease Genetic test
Duchennes Myotonic dystrophy

EMG/NCS Muscle biopsy

May provide a definitive diagnosis
