Monoplegia One limb, usually arm; probably reflects a mild hemiplegia.
Focal neurological deficits were seen in 5 (18.51%) patients, in which 3 (11.11%) patients had hemiplegia, 1 had monoplegia and the other one was quadriplastic (Table 4).
These include coma, hemiplegia, paraplegia, monoplegia, cranial nerve palsy, speech disturbance, sensory impairment, etc.
Patterns of weakness (Appendix Figure 1) included acute monoplegia (weakness or paralysis of 1 limb, n = 5); asymmetric upper (n = 1) or lower (n = 5) extremity weakness; and generalized asymmetric tetraplegia or quadriplegia (asymmetric weakness in >3 limbs, n = 16).
Differential diagnoses included meningoencephalitis with associated motor polyradiculopathy and monoplegia secondary to stroke.
One of the cases was that of Rasmussen's encephalitis with associated monoplegia.
