Renal failure: neurologic complications
Neurologic complications of chronic renal failure include diffuse encephalopathy, seizures, stroke, movement disorders, sleep alterations, polyneuropathy, mononeuropathies, and myopathy. Dialysis is also associated with several types of encephalopathies. Toxic metabolic accumulation, hyperkalemia, hypercoagulability, immunologic disturbances, and acid base disequilibrium are potential mechanisms.
