When impulses reach the anterior horn cell, an impulse is sometimes fired back toward the periphery, forming the F-wave.
2], who examined serial sections of anterior horn cells using electron microscopy.
These patients had asymmetric, acute weakness, pleocytosis, and in 14 patients with studies performed, results of electromyography/nerve conduction studies were consistent with motor axonopathy, anterior horn cell involvement, or both.
In seven cases, the evaluation suggested involvement of spinal cord gray matter--specifically anterior horn cells.
Demonstrating pathologic changes as well as focal anterior horn cell loss in the patient referenced by Holman is in keeping with neuropathologic findings in poliomyelitis.
Although muscle denervation and reduced CMAP amplitudes do not distinguish loss of anterior horn cells from loss of motor axons (15), these patients' clinical features can be explained only by anterior horn cell disease, since no known infectious processes limited to motor axons produce widespread, asymmetric paralysis without sensory involvement.
It's critical to use appropriate diagnostic testing--including cerebrospinal fluid evaluation, electrodiagnostics (indicative of anterior horn cell damage or poliomyelitis), and neuroimaging--to avoid inappropriate treatments such as heparin or intravenous immunoglobulin, Dr.
It's critical to use appropriate diagnostic testing--including CSF evaluation, electrodiagnostics (indicative of anterior horn cell damage or poliomyelitis), and neuroimaging--to avoid inappropriate treatments such as heparin or intravenous immunoglobulin, he advised.
West Nile virus) have been associated with acute flaccid paralysis (AFP)--a clinical syndrome of rapidly progressive flaccid paralysis typically caused by dysfunction of the anterior horn cells, peripheral motor nerves or nerve roots, neuromuscular junction, or muscle--La Crosse virus has not been identified as a cause (3,4).
