Other Neurological Conditions

  • Acoustic Neuroma
    Acoustic neuroma is a noncancerous tumor that may develop from an overproduction of Schwann cells that press on the hearing and balance nerves in the inner ear.
  • Bell's Palsy
    Bell's palsy is an unexplained weakness or paralysis of the facial muscle that begins suddenly and worsens over three to five days. It can strike at any age, but it occurs most often in pregnant women, and in people who have diabetes, influenza, or another upper respiratory ailment.
  • Ménière's Disease
    Meniere's disease is a balance disorder caused by an abnormality found in a section of the inner ear called the labyrinth.
  • Multiple Cranial Neuropathies
    Neuropathy is a disorder that affects the nerves. The cranial nerves are those that arise directly from your brain or brainstem and often affect areas like the face and eyes.
  • Neurocutaneous Syndromes
    Neurocutaneous syndrome is a broad term for a group of disorders. These diseases are life-long conditions that can cause tumors to grow inside the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin, and skeletal bones.
  • Neuromyelitis Optica
    Neuromyelitis optica, sometimes called NMO, is a rare condition that affects the spinal cord and the nerves that carry signals from the eyes to the brain, causing paralysis and blindness.
  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
    The ventricles are chambers in the brain that normally contain cerebrospinal fluid. Sometimes, too much fluid can build up in the ventricles. This accumulation of fluid leads to a condition is called normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH).
  • Pseudotumor Cerebri
    Pseudotumor cerebri is a disorder related to high pressure in the brain that causes signs and symptoms of a brain tumor—hence the term “pseudo” or false tumor.
  • Transverse Myelitis
    Transverse myelitis is a neurological condition that happens when both sides of the same section of the spinal cord become inflamed.
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
    Trigeminal neuralgia is a type of nerve pain that affects your face.
