Neuroleptic malignant st

Akiko Mori, Kazuhiro Yamaya, Yoshio Nitta, Seijiro Yoshida
A 61-year-old woman with a left main lesion and coronary spastic angina was scheduled for off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB). She had been orally receiving selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor( SSRI) for the treatment of depression. OPCAB to left anterior discending artery( LAD) and left circumflex branch (LCX) was performed using the bilateral internal thoracic arteries assisted by intra-aortic balloon pumping. When the sternotomy was going to be closed, ST elevation of electrocardiogram (ECG) occurred and was followed by complete atrio-ventricular (AV) block...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a probable interaction between enteral feeds and levodopa leading to neuroleptic malignant-like syndrome (NMLS) in a polytrauma patient with Parkinson's disease (PD). CASE SUMMARY: A 63-year-old morbidly obese male polytrauma patient with PD and type 2 diabetes mellitus was admitted to our intensive care unit postoperatively. Enteral feeds were administered per nasogastric tube and provided 0.88 g /kg/day of protein based on ideal body weight (IBW)...

This review focuses on new data from recent publications concerning how compounding interactions between different thermoregulatory pathways influence the development of hyperthermia and/or neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), and the fundamental issue of the presumed causal role of antipsychotic drugs. The formal criteria for substantiating cause-effect relationships in medical science, established by Hill, are applied to NMS and, for comparison, also to malignant hyperthermia and serotonin toxicity. The risk of morbidities related to hyperthermia is reviewed from human and experimental data: temperatures in excess of 39...

Little is known about cardiac abnormalities in neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) in Parkinson's disease (PD), although high levels of serum creatine kinase (CK) suggest the presence of cardiac involvement. We have also been aware of elevated serum myosin light chain I (MLCI) in these patients with no clear evidence of an acute coronary syndrome. To evaluate cardiac involvement in NMS in PD, we recorded the electrocardiogram (ECG) and measured serum MLCI and CK-MB levels. Plasma levels of noradrenaline and adrenaline were also determined...

A 66-year-old man developed a fever and had a syncopal attack during treatment with imipramine and amantadine for depression and Parkinson's disease. His muscular enzyme levels were very high, so he was diagnosed with incomplete syndrome malin and given hydration therapy. The electrocardiogram recorded an ST segment elevation like acute myocardial infarction in most leads, and the echocardiogram revealed left ventricular dysfunction with severe hypokinesis to dyskinesis of the anterior and apical wall regions, and hyperkinesis of the basal wall...

Parkinsonism is an uncommon movement disorder in childhood. Six unusual cases of acquired parkinsonism in hospitalized children are described. Clinical manifestations included an akinetic-rigid syndrome with and without tremor, the combination of parkinsonism and dystonia, and a parkinsonism-plus syndrome. Altered mental status, mutism, dysphagia, and sialorrhea were frequent associations. Etiologies included hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy; haloperidol treatment with and without neuroleptic malignant syndrome; toxicity of cytosine arabinoside, cyclophosphamide, amphotericin B, and methotrexate; St...
