Introduction Stroke is a common disorder of the central nervous system, often with secondary or associated neuromuscular manifestations. Stroke-related neuromuscular manifestations include peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, and dysautonomia. They occur in diseases that directly affect both the central and peripheral nervous system, and in diseases that affect only the central nervous system but have secondary neuromuscular changes. This chapter will review primary as well as secondary neuromuscular manifestations of stroke. Neuromuscular manifestations in diseases affecting both the central and peripheral nervous system These disorders affect the arterial or venous system of the brain or spinal cord and of peripheral nerves or muscles. They cause cerebral or spinal infarction or hemorrhage as well as ischemic, inflammatory, or metabolic neuropathy or myopathy. They include infective endocarditis, various vasculitides, drug abuse, aortic dissection or aneurysm, antiphospholipid syndrome, and genetic or hereditary conditions such as mitochondrial disease, Fabry's disease, and neurofibromatosis.
