BACKGROUND: Comparison of sensory conduction of median nerve (MN) with the one of ulnar nerve (UN) over writs-to-ring finger (RF) segment is useful in electrodiagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). However, there is not any consensus regarding the usage of this technique in grading of CTS. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether the hands of CTS with elicitable MN sensory responses on index finger, but not on RF (non-respondings) compose a more severe electrophysiologic grade than the hands with elicitable responses on both fingers (respondings)...

In the elderly, myasthenia gravis (MG) can present with bulbar symptoms, which can be clinically difficult to diagnose from other neurological comorbid conditions. We describe a case of a 75-year-old man who had been previously diagnosed with dysphagia associated with medullary infarction but exhibited aggravation of the dysphagia later on due to a superimposed development of bulbar MG. After recovering from his initial swallowing difficulties, the patient suddenly developed ptosis, drooling, and generalized weakness with aggravated dysphagia...

Electrodiagnostic (EDX) studies are often very helpful in the diagnosis and management of patients who have or are suspected to have Distal Symmetric Polyneuropathy (DSP). However, EDX studies may not be appropriate in every situation. There are five common scenarios in which EDX studies are likely to be beneficial: (1) determining primary and alternative diagnoses; (2) determining severity, duration and prognosis of disease; (3) evaluating risk of associated problems; (4) determining the effect of medications; and (5) evaluating the effect of toxic exposures...

BACKGROUND: Until recently, the peripheral nervous system (PNS) had been known to be spared in multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD). However, some studies of late have reported PNS damage in demyelination diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) such as MS and NMOSD. Although multiple studies have reported characteristics reminiscent of peripheral neuropathy in MS, there have been limited reports in NMOSD. To investigate the incidence and pathology of peripheral neuropathy in NMOSD, we reviewed articles describing such cases including our own case...

OBJECTIVE: Nerve ultrasound (US) data on myelin protein zero (MPZ)-related Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) are lacking. To offer a comprehensive perspective on MPZ-related CMTs, we combined nerve US with clinics, electrodiagnosis and histopathology. METHODS: We recruited 36 patients (12 MPZ mutations), and correlated nerve US to clinical, electrodiagnostic measures, and sural nerve biopsy. RESULTS: According to motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) criteria, nine patients were categorized as "demyelinating" CMT1B, 17 as "axonal" CMT2I/J, and 10 as dominant "intermediate" CMTDID...
