Monoplegia is a condition in which a single limb in the body, usually an arm, is affected with paralysis. Sometimes, only a single muscle or group of muscles is affected. The condition is often associated with cerebral palsy. However, treatment of the disease is entirely possible with good results. Immediate infusion of heparin may help to recover sensation in the affected limb.
HOW IS MONOPLEGIA DIAGNOSED?
Monoplegia in the upper limbs is known as brachial monoplegia, while that in the lower limbs is called crural monoplegia.
