81 Possible Causes for Abnormal Gait, Clumsy Gait, MRI Scan of the Brain Abnormal

  • Acoustic Neuroma

    This may create headaches, difficulty walking and damage to cranial nerves.[] Dizziness Balance problems Facial numbness and tingling with possible, though rare, paralysis of a facial nerve Headaches, clumsy gait, and mental confusion may be life-threatening[] Diffusion-weighted MRI detected brain abnormalities on the fourth day after onset of symptoms, and polymerase chain reaction identification of HSV 1 DNA confirmed the diagnosis[]

  • Metachromatic Leukodystrophy

    Diagnosis is based on the onset of neurological symptoms, presence of gait abnormalities, spasticity, decreased muscle stretch reflexes and neuro-radiological evidence of[] Clumsiness, gait problems, slurred speech, incontinence, bizarre behavior and seizures are also observed.[] MRI scan of brain was abnormal and the β-galactosidase levels were normal. However, undetectable arylsulfatase A activity in the child confirmed the diagnosis of MLD.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    abnormalities (e.g. wide-based gait, limb ataxia, slapping foot) joint or muscle contractures neurological examination muscle spasticity increased deep tendon reflexes muscle[] Clumsiness or lack of coordination : MS can make it hard to get around.[] Vertigo, incoordination and other cerebellar problems, depression, emotional lability, abnormalities in gait, dysarthria, fatigue and pain are also commonly seen.[]

  • Cerebellar Hemorrhage

    An 81-year-old woman complaining of gait disturbance and clumsiness of both hands was diagnosed with cervical myelopathy with atlantoaxial subluxation.[]

  • Wilson Disease

    Signs and symptoms of these problems can include clumsiness, tremors, difficulty walking, speech problems, impaired thinking ability, depression, anxiety, and mood swings.[] Tremors, involuntary muscle movements, clumsy gait and speech difficulties usually improve with treatment for Wilson's disease.[] X-ray examinations including MRI or head CT scan may show abnormalities, especially around the basal ganglia in the brain.[]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Symptoms may include behavior changes, confusion, memory problems, stiff muscles, loss of feeling in arms, legs or face, loss of balance, difficulty walking, muscle spasms[] The initial clinical signs include memory, behavioural and gait disturbances, sudden sensory and motor deficits, clumsiness, dystonic movements, and dysarthria, followed by[] Other non-invasive tests can be very helpful, however: Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans may be done to look for atrophied (shrunken) brain[]

  • Cerebellar Mass Lesion

    Gait disturbance/abnormality Headache Headache improved with position change Headache worse with position change Headache worse with valsalva/Bowel movement Headache/worsened[] ., parkinsonism) associated with basal ganglia involvement can cause slow, clumsy movements or gait unsteadiness Tremor and dyskinesia also may confound the cerebellar examination[] Month #6 MRI brain scan with and without contrast showed no significant change compared to previous MRI.[]

  • Binswanger Disease

    Extrapyramidal disease Gait disturbance Low back pain Progressive encephalopathy Pseudobulbar signs Rigidity Abnormality of the skeletal system Low back pain Congenital anomaly[] , clumsiness or frequent falls and a decrease in organizational skills.[] […] in the neck •Disease of the heart valves Brain scans such as CT scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) show a characteristic pattern in Binswanger’s disease.[]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    walking.[] Additional early signs and symptoms include: Developmental delay Muscle weakness Clumsiness Waddling gait Difficulty or inability to perform activities such as climbing stairs[] MRI scans of the brain may be useful in diagnosing certain forms of congenital muscular dystrophy where structural brain abnormalities are typically present.[]

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Muscle weakness of the lower body, including the legs and pelvis area, slowly gets worse, causing: Difficulty walking that gets worse over time; by age 25 to 30, the person[] Other symptoms include loss of some reflexes, a waddling gait, frequent falls and clumsiness (especially when running), difficulty when rising from a sitting or lying position[] walking : Ability to walk may be lost by age 12, and the child will have to use a wheelchair.[]
