Objective To study the clinical and electrophysiological characteristics of peripheral neuropathy in patients with multiple sclerosis(MS).Methods As a total of 84 MS patients,the clinical and electrophysiological data were analyzed in 16 MS patients with the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy(PNMS group)and in 68 MS patients without peripheral neuropathy(NPNMS group).Results The incidence of peripheral neuropathy was 19.0%(16/84)in this group.The clinical symptoms included extremity numbness in… Expand
Abnormal Nerve Conduction Study Findings Indicating the Existence of Peripheral Neuropathy in Multiple Sclerosis and Neuromyelitis Optica
Frequency of abnormal NCS findings might exhibit no significant difference between MS and NMO, although the cause and pathophysiology of peripheral neuropathy were different in MS and in NMO. Expand
Peripheral nerve demyelination in multiple sclerosis
Association of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy with MS is not frequent, but needs to be recognized as a treatable condition. Expand
Electrodiagnostic evaluation of peripheral nervous system changes in patients with multiple sclerosis.
The results suggest possible peripheral motor nerve abnormalities in MS patients, especially with the amplitude of the motor nerves; however, the results do not demonstrate any significant difference among the nerve conduction velocity parameters of sensory nerves between MS patients and the normal population. Expand
Peripheral nerves are progressively involved in multiple sclerosis--a hypothesis from a pilot study of temperature sensitized electroneurographic screening.
A mild and progressive involvement of the PNS in MS is suggested and the sensitivity of nerve conduction measurements might be increased if performed at a range of temperatures, reflecting a differential effect of cooling and warming on the peripheral nerves conduction parameters. Expand
Evaluation of electrodiagnostic changes in patient with multiple sclerosis
Although the frequency of PNS involvement varies in different population of MS patients, recognizing clinical and subclinical PNS impairments in MS patients is important for the treatment. Expand
Prolonged motor latency of the median nerve and reduced sensory conduction velocity in properly performed electrophysiological testing are accepted as diagnostic criteria for CTS. Expand
Exacerbation of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy during interferonbeta-1b therapy in a patient with childhood-onset multiple sclerosis.
A 23-year-old woman with childhood onset relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis treated with IFNbeta-1b who developed overt chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) immediately after therapy is reported. Expand
Ultrastructural changes of penile cavernous tissue in multiple sclerotic rats.
The function of penile erection is affected by MS, and the ultrastructural pathological changes of the penile cavernous tissue may be one of the important mechanisms of ED caused by severity MS. Expand
The ‘harlequin’ sign in association with multiple sclerosis
A 48-year old woman presented with a three-year history of exercise-induced left-sided facial flushing whilst the right side of her body remained pale, and MRI brain scan in the present case failed to reveal a central cause of the asymmetrical flushing. Expand
Pain in experimental autoimmune encephalitis: a comparative study between different mouse models
Diverse EAE models bearing genetic, clinical and histopathological heterogeneity, show different profiles of sensory and pathological changes and thereby enable studying the mechanistic basis and the diversity of changes in pain perception that are associated with distinct types of MS. Expand
