195 Possible Causes for Abnormal Finger-to-Nose Test, Microcephaly (2-3 SD), Poor Coordination of the Lower Extremity

Did you mean: Abnormal Finger-to-Nose Test, Microcephaly (2-3 SD, Poor Coordination of the Lower Extremity

  • Dysequilibrium Syndrome

    Microcephaly (-3 to -4 SD below the mean) has been reported in a few affected individuals. Life span.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Short stature (height just below the 2 nd centile) is a feature in a few affected individuals. Deep tendon reflexes in the lower extremities tend to be brisk.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebellar Neoplasm

    This study describes three cases of neuroectodermal cerebellar neoplasms occurring in adults, characterized by a monomorphic population of round cells with scanty cytoplasm and focal areas of lipid accumulation. Astrocytic and neuronal differentiation was confirmed in these cells by glial fibrillary acidic protein and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Tabes Dorsalis

    Tabes dorsalis, also known as syphilitic myelopathy, is a slow degeneration (specifically, demyelination) of the neural tracts primarily in the dorsal columns (posterior columns) of the spinal cord (the portion closest to the back of the body) and dorsal roots. These nerves normally help maintain a person's sense of[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cerebellar Disease

    Heel to shin test Have patient run their heel down the contralateral shin (this is equivalent the finger to nose test).[stanfordmedicine25.stanford.edu] […] to nose test abnormality Gait disturbance/abnormality Headache Headache improved with position change Headache worse with position change Headache worse with valsalva/Bowel[howmed.net] Finger to nose & finger to finger test Ask patient to fully extend arm then touch nose or ask them to touch their nose then fully extend to touch your finger.[stanfordmedicine25.stanford.edu]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). Extensive and repeated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations showed only diffuse abnormality in brain and spinal cord, but no focal lesions. We propose[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurological disorder characterised by a large number of motor and non-motor features that can impact on function to a variable degree. This review describes the clinical characteristics of PD with emphasis on those features that differentiate the disease from other[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    Parkinson's disease type 3 (PD3) is a form of Parkinson's disease that is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. The underlying mutation has not yet been identified, but PD3 has been related to a 2.5 Mb-locus on the short arm of chromosome 2. To date, PD3 has been diagnosed in distinct families in Europe and[…][symptoma.com]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Symptoms at lower doses may include mild sedation and poor coordination. At higher doses, there may be slurred speech, trouble walking, and vomiting.[en.wikipedia.org] Extreme doses may result in a decreased effort to breathe (respiratory depression), coma, or death.[en.wikipedia.org]
