Is Herpes zoster a neurological disorder?Samshipstone 10:53, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Suggest inclusion of Chagas' disease representing a selective pathologic incremental devastation of autonomic/vagal control of the esophagus, heart and colon. Chagas is endemic to Central and South America and imparts a heavy burden in morbidity and mortality in this region. Understanding of an infectious disease as a neurological disorder has many precedents (see polio, swine flu, etc.) and could perhaps focus more attention to the mystery and widespread misery vectored by the Riduvid Bug.--Lbeben (talk) 02:22, 11 July 2008 (UTC)


I'm no neurologist, but is agraphia (dysgraphia) considered a neurological condition? The Dysgraphia article certainly suggests it, or at least that it is most commonly considered a symptom of some neurological or psychological conditions. If it can be considered as one, perhaps it should be listed here as a link to the article. Just my $0.02. (talk) 05:55, 11 January 2010 (UTC)


I've reverted the latest edit removing dyslexia (since learning disabilities is in the list, and since the implication that neurological disorders cannot be genetic is false). A number of other entries have also been deleted recently: among these are Alzheimer's disease, Batten disease and carpal tunnel syndrome, which IMHO are unequivocally neurological disorders (not excluding them from other fields too, of course) and so I've reinstated them.

Others include Asperger syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, fibromyalgia and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I'm agnostic about these - do others have strong views? I would have thought a list of this type should be inclusive by default. Neurotip (talk) 21:14, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

I've renamed the article to help provide a better framework for including evolutionarily affirmative neurological conditions.   — C M B J   22:18, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Multiple Sclerosis[edit]

Now here's a hot button if ever I saw one. How much evidence does Wikipedia need before a neurologicial condition becomes a neurovascular one? Those of you in the know will immediately get what I'm aiming at. Please wait 3-5 minutes until knee jerk has subsided. Shtanto (talk) 08:30, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
