Unilateral leukonychia and hair depigmentation in multifocal motor neuropathy.
 

Author(s): Martin R Turner

Journal: Neurology. 2013 Nov;81(20):1800-1.

 

Neurophysiology studies in a 50-year-old man with slowly progressive weakness of the left upper limb revealed conduction block in the ulnar nerve above the elbow. His weakness remained stable with regular subcutaneous immunoglobulin, but he noted gradual hemibody hair depigmentation. ...

Multifocal motor neuropathy.
 

Author(s): Thy P Nguyen, Vinay Chaudhry

Journal: Neurol India. ;59(5):700-6.

 

Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is a unique disorder characterized by slowly progressive, asymmetric, distal and upper limb predominant weakness without significant sensory abnormalities. Electrophysiology is crucial to the diagnosis, revealing the hallmark partial conduction block. ...

Intravenous immunoglobulin treatment in multifocal motor neuropathy.
 

Author(s): W-Ludo van der Pol, Elisabeth A Cats, Leonard H van den Berg

Journal: J. Clin. Immunol.. 2010 May;30 Suppl 1():S79-83.

 

Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is characterized by asymmetric weakness of limbs and the electrophysiological finding of conduction block in motor nerves. Conduction block is the inability of nerves to propagate action potentials and is probably caused by immune-mediated dysfunction ...
