It shows symptoms of loss of motor control, pain and paraesthesia. When there is an inflammation in the white matter or gray matter region of the spinal cord or connecting with brain results myelitis. In myelitis, paralysis and sensory loss can occur due to the damage caused in myelination of the axon. Anterior spinal artery syndrome is a condition that arouse when the blood carrying artery is interrupted. It is common syndrome with symptoms of loss of sensory and motor sensation due to injury.
Patients often experience headaches that are bilateral and located in the frontal temporal region. It is associated with pulsating pain, nausea, photophobia, phonophobia and aggravated with activity. (Pathostatement) The pathophysiology is often elusive. The cause is often neurovascular and take place in the brain. A type of neuron event can cause an imbalance in the trigeminal system causing inflammation.
According to the Diagnostic Manual of Mental Disorders (fifth edition). It states that an individual with Autistic Spectrum Disorder has persistent defects in the social communication and social interaction across multiple contexts. They have restricted, repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests, or activities. For a diagnosis to be made, symptoms must be present in the early developmental period. Symptoms can cause clinically significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of current functioning.
DEFINITION Paget disease is defined as a disease that involves destruction of abnormal bone. This disease occur when overactivity of osteoclastic and also followed by compensatory of osteoblastic activity that lead to a struture of the bone ( woven bone ). Usually affected skull, pelvis, femur, tibia, and lumbar spine ( http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/334607-overview ) ( http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6305/3126/320/paget.jpg ) DISEASE CLASSIFICATION Paget disease is classified as inflammatory disease and congenital disease. Inflammatory disease is
Hyperacusis is found to be associated with both peripheral and central factors. Hyperacusis is often accompanied by a cochlear hearing loss, and this usually involves damage to cochlear hair cells and subsequent auditory nerve degeneration. However, annoyance, fear, and pain hyperacusis must involve central mechanisms. Hyperacusis is a co morbid condition of various other medical conditions that are either peripheral or central factors. Hyperacusis is found in Bell’s palsy, Ménière’s disease, perilymph fistula, superior semicircular canal dehiscence, acoustic trauma, barotrauma, noise-induced hearing loss, stapedectomy, tympanoplasty, Autism, carotid aneurysm, middle cerebral aneurysm, head injury, multiple sclerosis, migraine, epilepsy, myasthenia
Myelin damage disrupts communication between your brain and the rest of your body. Ultimately, the nerves themselves may deteriorate a process that's currently irreversible.” – (Unkown. (2014).

Although cerebral palsy is known for greatly impacting physical development, it can also impact you intellectually. Aphasia is the loss of partial verbal expression, making pronouncing words more difficult. Dysarthria is abnormalities of facial muscle tone which makes it harder to make and control facial movements. (Speech and Language…., n.d, p. 1). These conditions can all be apart of the symptoms and affects of cerebral
Therefore, the client will be encouraged to join hypnotherapy sessions. Prognosis The prognosis for the client is good. In the majority of the cases, the prognosis for Acute Stress Disorder is good because the symptoms can be managed in a short period of time. However, there are factors that will contribute to this prognosis, such as social and family support, client’s motivation and commitment to the therapeutic process, and practice of meditation and
This syndrome is caused by damage inflicted to the anterior aspect of the spinal cord or as a result of decreased vascular supply. Brown-Sequard syndrome occurs in the presence of damage to one side of the spinal cord more so than the other, resulting in ipsilateral loss of motor function and sensory loss too. Posterior cord syndrome is very rare and the cause is most commonly found with chronic myelopathy resulting in loss of vibration and proprioception below the level of
Common findings are neurodefecits in the central nervous system (CNS) such as chronic neurologic demyelination and inflammation of the CNS, lesions found in the neural space of the person, and an inappropriate immune response (Borazanci et al. 2009). Loss of myelin in the CNS leads to inappropriate action potential activation in which the axons of the neurons become inflamed over time and potentially lead to axon damage and/or loss (Nickerson 2013). Nickerson 2013 also stated that this long term inflammation could be contributing to the long term disabilities associated with MS. Loss of myelin in the axons of neurologic cells lead to many things; one being the formation of astrocytic scarring forming on the myelin sheaths (Newlan et
Occupational therapy can help a person with Asperger’s thrive physically, emotionally, and socially. As previously stated, if these symptoms were to be left alone, these children and adults would be subjected to bullying, ridiculed, and social isolation due to them being naïve and having concrete views of the world resulting in being vulnerable. Through occupational therapy intervention, this cycle can be interrupted by helping the patient adjust their sensory system. This means, “gaining the physical abilities needed to succeed, acquire valuable social, prevocational, and play skills, and improve their overall ability to function.” Through this intervention, one can not only learn to succeed in the classroom but when the time comes, uphold employment. (Murray-Slutsky, 2004).
Rett’s Syndrome Kelsey Leroux Child Development CYC 101 Lenore Simbulan October 14, 2016 Rett’s Syndrome Rett’s syndrome is defined by the Ontario Rett’s Syndrome Association (ORSA) as “a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by the loss of the spoken language and hand use, coupled with the development of distinctive hand stereotypies… It is usually caused by a mutation of the MECP2 gene on the x chromosome” (2016). Rett’s syndrome is considered by medical experts as a rare genetic neurological and developmental disorder that affects the way the brain develops causing a progressive inability to use muscles for speech, and eye and body movements. Most babies seem to develop normally until about six to eighteen months old. Rett’s
