Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Paralysis"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.


  1. Paralysis is one sign associated with an upper motor neuron lesion.
  2. Paralysis is the complete loss of muscle function for one or more muscle groups.
  3. Paralysis is defined as complete loss of strength in an affected limb or muscle group.
  4. The paralysis was likely the result of spinal cord compression secondary to an epidural hematoma in 1 case and subdural hematoma in 1 case.
  5. The paralysis was preceded by pain radiating down both legs immediately after the local anesthetic injection.

Facial Paralysis

  1. Ivarsson S, Andreasson L, Ahlfors K. Acyclovir treatment in a case of facial paralysis caused by herpes zoster.
  2. Coker NJ, Salzer TA. The use of masseter electromyography with electro-neurography in the evaluation of facial paralysis.

Facial Nerve

  1. A tumour compressing the facial nerve anywhere along its complex pathway can result in facial paralysis.
  2. Bell's palsy is a form of facial paralysis caused by interruption of conduction by the facial nerve.

Herpes Zoster

  1. Most commonly, facial paralysis follows temporal bone fractures, though the likelihood depends on the type of fracture.
  2. Patients present with facial paralysis, ear pain, vesicles, sensorineural hearing loss, and vertigo.
  3. Idiopathic peripheral facial palsy (Bell palsy): The incidence of Bell palsy is 2-3-. Retroauricular pain usually precedes the paralysis by 1 or 2 days.
  4. Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when herpes zoster causes facial paralysis and rash on the ear (herpes zoster oticus) or mouth.

Cranial Nerve

  1. Paralysis of cranial nerves usually affects both sides of the face (diplegia).
  2. There is a state of complete external ophthalmoplegia due to paralysis of third, fourth and sixth cranial nerves.
  3. Def: The syndrome consists of unilateral frontal or orbital headache, paralysis of the third cranial nerve and slight proptosis.

Idiopathic Facial

  1. Idiopathic facial paralysis in the dog.
  2. Herpes simplex virus in idiopathic facial paralysis (Bell palsy).

Nerve Paralysis

  1. Animal model: Coonhoun paralysis, idiopathic polyradiculoneuritis of coonhounds.
  2. Oculomotor nerve paralysis may cause ptosis, diplopia, and internal ophthalmoplegia.
  3. The pathway of the facial nerve is long and relatively convoluted, and so there are a number of causes that may result in facial nerve paralysis.


  1. In chronic palsy or paralysis is complete, nerve decompression.
  2. Peripheral nerve injury results in more focal paralysis and paresis.
  3. Botulinum toxin has a delayed onset of action and results in descending paralysis and prominent cranial nerve palsies.

Spinal Anesthesia

  1. Robles R: Cranial nerve paralysis after spinal anesthesia.
  2. Rose AT, Pritzker S: Paralysis of the abducens nerve following spinal anesthesia.
  3. During the physical examination, a distinction must first be made between paralysis and paresis (incomplete paralysis).

  2. Vocal cord stenosis was seen without vocal cord abductor paralysis.
  3. The major symptom of Bell's palsy is one-sided facial weakness or paralysis.
  4. Administration of bivalent botulinum antitoxin did not halt progression of paralysis.
  5. Aerodynamic properties of the larynx are damaged more in paralysis and remain unchanged in paresis.

Brachial Plexus

  1. Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis or paresis (weakening).
  2. This compression results in weakness or paralysis that normally occurs on one side of the face only.
  3. Avulsion of spinal nerves resulting in brachial paralysis is a theoretic indication for exploration of the brachial plexus.
  4. Brachial plexus palsy refers to paralysis that is associated with compression and tearing of a group of nerves called the brachial plexus.
