Myelomeningocele is a significantly disabling birth defect that relatively spares cognitive function. It affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems, typically causing some degree of paralysis and bowel and bladder dysfunction. It is associated with several other anomalies including, hydrocephalus, Chiari II malformation, tethered cord syndrome, and syringomyelia. Patients require regular multidisciplinary follow-up to manage these conditions.

Cryoglobulins are serum proteins (predominantly immunoglobulins) that precipitate at temperatures below 37° C and dissolve on rewarming. The majority of cryoglobulins are mixed antigen-antibody complexes that occur in autoimmune or infectious disorders, especially hepatitis C virus infection. Cryoglobulinemic neuropathy is one of the most common forms of vasculitic neuropathy. Sensory neuropathy is the commonest form of neuropathy in mixed cryoglobulinemia.

Epilepsy & Seizures
Benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy is an inherited epileptic syndrome characterized by cortical hand tremors, myoclonic jerks, and rare tonic-clonic seizures. In most affected individuals, the disease takes a benign course. However, at an advanced age, worsening of the tremor and myoclonus is common, and slight intellectual disability is present in a subset of patients. Diagnosis is based on the clinical and electrophysiological findings.
