  • Alcoholic Cerebellar Degeneration

    Other impairments on the neurologic exam that may raise suspicion for a cerebellar disorder include: impaired heel-shin test, impaired finger-nose-finger test (dysmetria),[mdedge.com] Examine arms for limb ataxia (see above): rebound of outstretched arms, finger-nose test for past pointing, check for dysdiadochokinesis.[patient.info] […] and heel-to-shin tests) Intention tremor (occurs at end of purposeful movement) Scanning speech (abnormal pauses between syllables of a word) E.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Subacute Cerebellar Degeneration

    There were Romberg sign ( ), fingernose test ( ), and heel–knee test ( ). There was no obvious abnormality in sensory system.[journals.lww.com] Examine arms for limb ataxia (see above): rebound of outstretched arms, finger-nose test for past pointing, check for dysdiadochokinesis.[patient.info] […] and heel-to-shin tests) Intention tremor (occurs at end of purposeful movement) Scanning speech (abnormal pauses between syllables of a word) E.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    Examine arms for limb ataxia (see above): rebound of outstretched arms, finger-nose test for past pointing, check for dysdiadochokinesis.[patient.info] Ask the patient to repeat "baby hippopotamus" - look for dysarthria and abnormal speech rhythm and syllable emphasis.[patient.info]

  • Parkinson-Dementia Syndrome

    We studied a family in which three siblings had a syndrome characterized by parkinsonism features, mental deterioration, pyramidal signs, and abnormal eye movements beginning in the third decade. The pathology resembled that of progressive supranuclear palsy or the Parkinson-dementia complex of Guam, but these[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Senile Chorea

    The term "senile chorea" is applied to cases of sporadic chorea with onset after the age of 50 years. The causes of senile chorea are numerous and include drugs, medications, cerebrovascular disease, genetic and sporadic neurodegenerations, and a range of systemic (hematological, metabolic, immune) disorders. The[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Movement Disorder

    We present a case of recurrent bouts of irritability with arching, head extension, and lethargy in a previously healthy 10-month-old girl admitted to the PICU for acute onset of a movement disorder. The patient's vital signs and physical examination were unremarkable but recurrent bouts of abnormal movements[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parkinsonian Disorder

    To determine if blood neurofilament light chain (NfL) protein can discriminate between Parkinson disease (PD) and atypical parkinsonian disorders (APD) with equally high diagnostic accuracy as CSF NfL, and can therefore improve the diagnostic workup of parkinsonian disorders. The study included 3 independent[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatic Chorea

    To describe Sydenham chorea among children in a cohort of patients with rheumatic fever (RF). An existing database was used to identify demographic characteristics, clinical manifestations, and therapy in persons with RF identified in Salt Lake City, Utah, from 1985 through January 2002. Of 584 cases in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
