Disease relevance of Mononeuropathies


Psychiatry related information on Mononeuropathies

  • A case of panarteritis with purpura fulminans, mononeuritis multiplex, gastrointestinal manifestation and presumably cardiac involvement in a previously healthy 22-year-old man with a history of drug abuse including cocaine, cannabinoids and methamphetamines is described [6].

High impact information on Mononeuropathies

  • Regional changes in brain neural activity were examined in rats with painful peripheral mononeuropathy (chronic constrictive injury, CCI) by using the fully quantitative 14C-2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) autoradiographic technique to measure local glucose utilization rate [7].
  • In particular, the lesions of mononeuritis multiplex progressed after initiation of high-dose prednisone [8].
  • Multiple cranial mononeuropathies with acetylcholine receptor antibody in mitochondrial diabetes [9].
  • One additional patient had mononeuritis multiplex and one had ALS [10].
  • Nonvasculitic, steroid-responsive mononeuritis multiplex [11].
