ratings and reviews)
Monoplegia is a form of paralysis that affects just one limb. It is almost always the product of cerebral palsy, though a limited number of other medical conditions may cause monoplegia. Most people with monoplegia experience a gradual deterioration in functioning, beginning with weakness or limpness in the affected limb. Over time, the effects intensify, eventually leading to full or partial paralysis of the affected limb. Monoplegia is the product of damage to parts of the brain that control the affected area. Less commonly spinal cord damage may also be implicated, but this is more likely to cause other symptoms, such as paraplegia or quadriplegia.
HOW IS MONOPLEGIA DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of Monoplegia depends on the symptoms. The neurologist may order for a MRI of the brain to evaluate the cause.
HOW IS MONOPLEGIA TREATED?
There is no cure for monoplegia but physiotherapy could help in strengthening the muscles and to recover functioning of the affected limb. Treatment would also depend on the cause of this disorder. Paralysis caused could be temporary, or where recovery is possible or permanent.

It has been observed that the arms are most commonly affected in patients with monoplegia than the legs.
