Email your librarian or administrator to recommend adding this book to your organisation's collection. Any nervous system disease where there is damage to the myelin sheath of the neurons is known as a demyelinating disease.

The damage to the myelin sheath diminishes the conduction of the signals in the nerves affected. This decrease in the conduction ability leads to deficiency in sensation, cognition, movement and other functions all of which.

A demyelinating disease is any disease of the nervous system in which the myelin sheath of neurons is damaged. This damage impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves.

In turn, the reduction in conduction ability causes deficiency in sensation, movement, cognition, or other functions depending on which nerves are lty: Neurology. There is a lack of awareness about these diseases in childhood, however, even amongst pediatric neurologists and MS specialists.

Childhood Central Nervous System (CNS) inflammatory demyelinating disorders (CIDD) are being diagnosed more commonly now.

There is ambiguity in the use of different terms in relation to CIDD. Recently, consensus definitions have been proposed so that there is Demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system in childhood book in.

Pediatric Central Nervous System Inflammatory Demyelinating Disorders (CIDDs) are a heterogeneous group of diseases that include entities such as Clinically Isolated Syndrome (CIS), Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO).

Typical and atypical presentations Demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system in childhood book various pediatric demyelinating diseases also emphasize therapy response and those that breakthrough on treatment.

Filling a critical gap in the literature on inflammatory disorders of the central nervous system, all those that treat patients with these rare and challenging disorders will find this book.

Javed, B.G.W. Arnason, in Encyclopedia of Neuroscience, The demyelinating diseases are common neurological disorders that affect the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system.

They cause substantial disability and some are associated with a. INTRODUCTION. Differential diagnostic considerations for acute central nervous system demyelination in children include acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), multiple sclerosis (MS), optic neuritis, transverse myelitis, neuromyelitis optica (Devic disease), and various infectious, metabolic, and rheumatologic conditions ().Most of these conditions are thought to be caused by immune.

Osmotic stress and disruption of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) can cause acute demyelinating process, which if involves the pons is known as central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) and is called extrapontine myelinolysis (EPM) if other locations of.

In a retrospective review of patients with acquired demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system, patients (%) whose diseases started in childhood, were selected from patients, who had medical records in the Neurology Department of Dokuz Eylul University.

Thus, some myelin disorders (eg, Guillain-Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, some other peripheral nerve polyneuropathies) tend to affect primarily the peripheral nerves, and others affect primarily the CNS (see table Disorders That Can Cause Demyelination of the Central Nervous System).

The most commonly. The book Demyelinating Disorders of the Central Nervous System in Childhood consists of 23 chapters written by well known clinicians and experts. The book addresses paediatric multiple sclerosis, with special reference to epidemiology, genetic and environmental risk factors, biological presentation, the latest research on diagnosis and treatment, age-related effects on clinical presentation Author: Vesna V Brinar.

Inflammatory demyelinating diseases (IDDs), sometimes called Idiopathic (IIDDs) because the unknown etiology of some of them, and sometimes known as borderline forms of multiple sclerosis, is a collection of multiple sclerosis variants, sometimes considered different diseases, but considered by others to form a spectrum differing only in terms of chronicity, severity, and clinical course.

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an inflammatory, demyelinating condition that affects the Central Nervous System, primarily the optic nerves and spinal cord and is characterized by a frequent relapses and disease flairs [1].; It is of unknown etiology, but is more common in people of African and Asian origin [4].; Serum IgG antibodies have been identified as the major cause.

The term “demyelinating disease” (DD) of the central nervous system refers to primary, usually idiopathic, abnormal processes that cause the destruction of the normal myelin development. - Demyelinating Disorders of the Central Nervous System in Childhood Edited by Dorothee Chabas and Emmanuelle L.

Other disorders resulting in hypomyelination are hereditary. Almost all of these disorders result in CNS hypomyelination, except in Golden Retrievers, in which hypomyelination of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) has been reported.

In CNS hypomyelination, the basic defect involves interference with the functional maturation of oligodendrocytes.

Clinicians suspect demyelination when episodes reflecting damage to white matter tracts within the central nervous system occur in young adults. The paucity of specific biological markers of discrete demyelinating syndromes places an emphasis on clinical phenotype—temporal and spatial patterns—when classifying demyelinating disorders.

The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, the most Author: Siddharthan Chandran. Demyelinating Causes. Multiple sclerosis is by far the most common causation of disease-related myelin trauma. Other common conditions that affect the central nerveous system myelin components include: CNS neuropathy conditions, central pontine myelinolysis, various CNS myelopathy conditions, leukoencephalopathy conditions, encephalomyelitis conditions, leukodystrophies and Canavan disease.

Inflammatory disorders of the nervous system, although individually uncommon, collectively make up % of acute paediatric neurology presentations and many are potentially treatable. Research into them is lagging behind adult research, but better diagnosis and often simple treatments could lead to substantial clinical benefit and reduction in long-term disability.

The peripheral nervous system complication is known as postinfectious neuritis, acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuritis, or the Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and is characterized by the rapid onset of flaccid motor weakness with depression of tendon reflexes and inflammatory demyelination of peripheral nerves.
