Case Study 1 MS by jpUEpqbo

VIEWS: 0 PAGES: 4

									Source of Myelin Antigens is currently unknown: Hypotheses: Viral, Genetic ???


                                   Antigen: molecule that activates the immune system




                                 CNS immune system
                                 destroys Oligodendrocytes




                                           Result
            Romberg Test
Patient closes eyes, places feet together
 and hands at sides

Normal: Patient should stand still

Abnormal: Patient Sways
             Abnormal Romberg Test:
                 Sensory deficit
1) Damage to Peripheral Sensory Receptors (i.e. muscle spindle, Golgi tendon organ)

Damage to PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is NOT PART OF MS!!!!!




2) Damage to Sensory Pathways/Neurons
                        in Spinal Cord
3) Damage to Brain neurons: cerebellum, cranial nerve VIII and cerebrum
