430 Possible Causes for Abnormal Involuntary Movement, Cognitive Defect

  • 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]

  • Huntington's Disease

    Motor function was assessed by Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale (AIMS) and by Unified Huntington Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) presurgery and postsurgery for up to 4 years[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition to motor symptoms and cognitive deterioration, neuropsychiatric symptoms comprise part of the Huntington’s disease phenotype. 1 – 3 The genetic defect underlying[doi.org] Defective huntingtin protein leads to brain changes that cause abnormal involuntary movements, a severe decline in thinking and reasoning skills, and irritability, depression[alz.org]

  • Central Nervous System Disorder

    There were significantly more signs of central nervous system dysfunction in the OCD group, as shown by abnormalities in fine motor coordination, involuntary and mirror movements[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common structural defects include birth defects, anencephaly, hypospadias, and spina bifida.[en.wikipedia.org] Patients who come to medical attention during childhood but after the neonatal period may have congenital defects including intellectual disability, which is mild compared[myotonic.org]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Early in the study, we became aware that some patients showed abnormal involuntary movements of a choreoarthrotoid type, associated with hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These may include motor dysfunction (paralysis, balance or gait abnormalities), cognitive impairment (amnesia, disorientation, confusion), speech defects (aphasia, dysphasia[symptoma.com]

  • Stroke
