3 CLINICAL ROLE OF NERVE BIOPSY IS VERY LIMITED Identify the cause of a neuropathy (vasculitis, amyloidosis). Nerve conduction o studies are more useful than nerve biopsy for dis- tinguishing between a demyelinating neuropathy and an axonal disorder.

15 ACUTE INFLAMMATORY POLYNEUROPATHY (GUILLAIN-BARRE A SYNDROME OR GBS) Rapidly progressive neuropathy, chiefly motor, reaching maximum weakness usually within 1 to 2 weeks. Severe respiratory weakness is a major danger and may require treatment in an intensive care unit. An acute infectious illness precedes weakness in two thirds, consisting of influenza-like symptoms or diarrhea. The res- piratory disorder is linked to infection by viruses whereas diarrhea is often caused by Campylobacter jejuni. R t k k th P th di Recovery takes weeks or months. Permanent handicap occurs in 15%-20% of patients.
16 GBS: DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT Electrophysiology: early block of conduction of action potentials along motor nerves. Slowing of conduction veloc- ity develops later as segmental remyelination appears. Electrodiagnostic studies often show evidence of co-existing axonal degeneration, usually of mild degree. Cerebrospinal fluid typically y has mildly elevated pro- tein and no cells. Sural nerve biopsy does not have a role in diagnosis but has provided information about etiology and pathogenesis. Plasmapheresis or intravenous gamma globulin speeds recovery.
17 PATHOLOGY OF GUILLAIN-BARRÉ SYNDROME Immune complexes (C3, IgG, IgM) are detectable on the surface of myelin sheaths in the early stage. Sparse T cells, chiefly CD4 subset, infiltrate endoneurium. Monocytes and macrophages appear to attack myelin shea Myelinated fibers show segmental demyelination during the first few days. Segmental remyelination occurs subsequently. The lesions have a perivenular distribution and tend to affect the DRG, nerve roots and adjacent nerves where blood nerve barrier is normally more permeable than elsewhere.

24 EVIDENCE FOR AUTOIMMUNE ETIOLOGY IN GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME Demyelinating neuropathy can be induced in experimental animals by immunization i with myelin, purified myelin protein or galactocerebroside. Antibody titers to nerve myelin in patients correlate with disease activity. The antibodies recognize specific glycolipids or glycoproteins of peripheral myelin in a minority of patients. Immune complexes are found at surface of myelin sheaths Plasmapheresis or intravenous gamma globulin speeds recovery when treatment is started early.
25 AXONAL VARIANT OF GUILLAIN- BARRE SYNDROME Clinical syndrome resembles Guillain-Barre syndrome, but is often purely motor. It is common in Asia and other countries but accounts for only 5% of patients in the US or Europe.
26 AXONAL VARIANT OF GBS, Possible molecular l mimicry i The patients often have elevated serum autoantibodies that recognize the terminal oligosaccharide of GM1 & GD1a ganglioside. The chemical structure of lipopolysaccharide of C. jejuni j has the same oligosaccharide id chain present in GD1a and GM1. This suggests that the immune response to C. jejuni induces antibodies that crossreact to a self- antigen of the axolemma. This axonal variant of t i

28 CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY DEMYELINAT- ING POLYNEUROPATHY (CIDP) Chronic progressive or relapsing neuropathy, motor > sensory. An antecedent infectious illness is uncommon. Electrophysiology: conduction block and slowing of velocity. Pathology: segmental demyelination and remyelination, onion bulbs, fibrosis and little or no lymphocytic infiltration of tissue. Probably an autoimmune disorder of myelin but pathogenesis is not well understood. Patients respond to plasmapheresis, intravenous gamma globulin or corticosteroid treatment.

32 CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH, TYPE I Slowly progressive distal limb weakness begins in first decade with great variation in onset; few sensory complaints. Autosomal dominant, mutations commonly affect PMP22. Neurological exam: Atrophy of distal leg muscles (stork leg appearance). Palpable nerve enlargement in 50%. Pes cavus and hammer toes is common. Electrophysiology: l Uniform slowing of conduction velocity. No conduction block. Pathology: similar to CIDP.
33 Lou Gehrig
34 AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (LOU GEHRIG S DISEASE) Progressive weakness, muscle wasting and fasciculations; often asymmetrical in the beginning. Symptoms usually begin after the age of 40. Hyperactive tendon reflexes, clonus and Babinski signs. Electromyogram: Signs of denervation in muscle. Normal or slightly reduced conductions. Most are sporadic; about 10% are familial. Death occurs usually within 3 to 5 years from onset.
35 ALS: FASCICULATIONS & BABINSKY REFLEXES
36 ALS: LOWER MOTOR NEURON PATHOLOGY Loss of motor neurons in ventral horns and nuclei of cranial nerve V, VII, IX-XII. Sparing of motor nuclei of cranial nerves III, IV & VI and Onuf s nucleus. Surviving motor neurons show atrophy & inclusions. Few chromatolytic-like nerve cells. Little or no evidence of axonal regeneration.

Rare in Betz motor cells of precentral gyrus. Invisible in routine histology (H&E) and are not argyrophilic. The inclusions are composed of TDP-43, a protein that is normally expressed in the nucleus. The skein-like inclusions are ubiquinated. Sensitivity: %; specificity: >95%.

Pyramidal degeneration with gradually increasing myelin pallor in a caudal direction due to loss of axons. The tract degeneration is marked by macrophages (removing myelin debris) and numerous activated microglia.

45 PATHOGENESIS OF ALS Mutations of the Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD1) cause ALS of 20% of familial cases. Expression of mutant human SOD1 in transgenic mice produces MND by a toxic or gain of function mechanism. This mouse model has yielded two major hypotheses of toxicity: aberrant oxidation intracellular aggregates g glutamate toxicity disrupted glutamate toxicity, disrupted calcium homeostasis, abnormal nitration and glycation of proteins, apoptotic death

61 DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY Dystrophin is a 427 kd protein that binds to the inner face of the surface membrane. The protein has amino acid sequence ence similarities with alpha-actinin, an actin binding protein. The protein links actin to the surface membrane and the basal lamina acting through dystrogly- can and merosin (alpha 2-laminin). Interrupting this linkage causes the surface Interrupting this linkage causes the surface membrane to be unstable leading to fiber injury.

Congophilic fibrillar inclusions, composed of abnormal (? paired-helical) filaments. Lymphocytic infiltration suggests an autoimmune disorder, but disorder is usually unresponsive to immunosuppression.

Usually respond to glucocorticoids or IVGG.

85 TUBULORETICULAR AGGREGATE IN ENDOTHELIAL CELL
86 DERMATOMYOSITIS: PATHOLOGY Perifascicular atrophy of muscle fibers, with or with- out necrotic fibers or regenerating fibers. Immune complexes of immunoglobulins and comple- ment components in the walls of blood vessels. Endothelial tubuloreticular aggregates. Reduced number of capillaries at periphery of fascicle. Lymphocytes are often sparse and located in chiefly perimysium.
87 INFLAMMATORY MYOPATHIES: PATHOPHYSIOLOGY Polymyositis and inclusion body myositis (IBM) have autoaggressive CD8 lymphocytes that appear to attack myofibers and suggest an autoimmune role. However, a major question exists about the etiology and patho- genesis of fibm. Dermatomyositis is thought to be caused by auto- antibodies, possibly targeting an antigen of the endothelium. The pathological findings suggest that myofiber injury may be caused by ischemia.
