In the first phase, fever, fatigue, malaise, headache, and arthralgia occur; in the second phase, neurologic signs develop, and the clinical spectrum ranges from mild meningitis to severe encephalitis, myelitis, and polyradiculitis
, sometimes with a fatal outcome (1).
Here, we report a case with TM and polyradiculitis related to HZ while he was under immunosuppression after liver transplantation.
Zoster myelitis and polyradiculitis was diagnosed and he was treated with 10 mg/kg acyclovir intravenously 3 times daily for two weeks.
Rare neurologic complications secondary to HZ include zoster myelitis, meningoencephalitis, Brown-Sequard syndrome, plexus neuritis, polyradiculitis, and segmentary zoster paresis (4-7).
Glial scar formation has been demonstrated in a patient with postherpetic polyradiculitis on MRI, which may explain why some patients fail to improve completely (23).
The most common clinical forms of neurobrucellosis that involve the central nervous system (CNS) are meningitis, myelitis, polyradiculitis
and mononeuritis (3).
It may also present with myelitis or an inflammatory polyradiculitis
of the spinal nerve roots or cranial nerves .
Since respiratory failure has not previously been described as a manifestation of hypothyroidism, it was initially interpreted as being due to polyradiculitis
, myasthenia, paraneoplastic syndrome, or primary myopathy until exclusion of these differential diagnoses.
A broad spectrum of CMV infection of the CNS includes polyradiculitis
and periventriculitis, as well as mass lesions or abscesses.
(Landry-Guillain-Barre syndrome) with total external ophtalmoplegia: encephalo-myelo-radiculo-neuropathy.
pneumoniae infection (1,2), manifesting as meningoencephalitis, cerebellar ataxia (3), brainstem disease (4), transverse myelitis (5), polyradiculitis
(4,6), or cranial nerve palsies (4,6).
PUUV infection may also lead to neurologic symptoms including meningoencephalitis, polyradiculitis
, seizures, cerebral hemorrhage, urinary bladder paralysis, and hypopituitarism (6,7).
