What Is Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN)?

Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN) is a rare form of acquired motor neuropathy that manifests as progressive muscle weakness but does not affect a patient’s sense of touch. The syndrome has a relatively recent nosological history, dating back to 1986.

What Is Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) Disease?

Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a rare, rapid onset neurological condition in which the body’s immune system attacks peripheral nerve cells, possibly leading to paralysis. This autoimmune disorder affects the arms and legs, and early symptoms include pain, weakness, and numbness.

How Is TPN Administered?

Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) is a nutritional support method used to administer essential nutrients intravenously directly into a patient’s bloodstream rather than into the gastrointestinal tract. TPN solution includes nutrients like sugar, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, and electrolytes.

IVIG for Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a chronic autoimmune disorder in which the body’s own antibodies destroy the communication between nerves and muscles, consequently weakening skeletal muscles. This condition can affect any of the voluntary muscles of the body, but certain muscle groups are more commonly affected than others.

IV Nutrition Therapy

IV nutrition therapy, also called parenteral nutrition (PN), is the intravenous administration of nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Because there are medical conditions (acute and chronic) that prevent patients from receiving oral nutrition, intravenous nutritional therapies are needed in many cases.

Necrotizing Myopathy

The term “myopathy” generally means muscle weakness, while the term “necrotizing” means cell death and necrosis. Necrotizing myopathy, also known as necrotizing autoimmune myopathy (NAM) or immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy (IMNM) is characterized by cell death and necrosis of muscle cells, particularly the muscles closer to the center of the body.
