An acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma) is a benign tumor that develops on the balance (vestibular) and hearing, or auditory (cochlear) nerves leading from your inner ear to the brain, as shown in the top image. The pressure on the nerve from the tumor may cause hearing loss and imbalance
Vasculitis is a systemic illness with inflammation in the blood vessels. The inflammation may lead to occlusion of blood vessels and subsequent ischemia in the organs and tissues. When the inflammation is in the blood vessels supplying peripheral nerves, patients may develop vasculitic neuropathy.
Vascular dementia is the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease. It’s caused when decreased blood flow damages brain tissue. Blood flow to brain tissue may be reduced by a partial blockage or completely blocked by a blood clot.
Ulnar neuropathy may cause pain, tingling, or numbness in one or both hands. It is the result of compression of the ulnar nerve, which occurs almost always at the elbow and sometimes at the wrist.
An unruptured aneurysm, therefore, is an aneurysm that has not yet ruptured. The presence of an aneurysm may not be known until too late when it ruptures.
Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition characterized by pain coming from the trigeminal nerve, which starts near the top of the ear and splits in three, toward the eye, cheek and jaw. We have two trigeminal nerves for each side of our face, but trigeminal neuralgia pain most commonly affects only one side
Transverse Myelitis (TM) is a disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord.
There are several causes of TGA; the most common are migraine or a temporary interruption of the blood supply to the brain. Accurate diagnosis usually involves imaging of the brain to determine the status of the brain’s blood vessels.
Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a condition of the nervous system. TS causes people to have “tics”. Tics are sudden twitches, movements, or sounds that people do repeatedly.
Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a group of disorders that occur when blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) are compressed. This can cause shoulder and neck pain and numbness in your fingers
