187 Possible Causes for Amnesia, Dysarthria, Dyslexia

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Dyslexia, incomplete homonymous hemianopia, preserved color identification with abnormal color vision on Ishihara, and simultanagnosia were all symptoms observed frequently[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical phenotype was remarkable for spastic dysarthria, limb spasticity, and seizures, in addition to more typical features of EOFAD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Amnesia: A minimal model and an interpretation.

  • Stroke

    Weber’s syndrome, contralateral hemplegia, hemianopsia and a variety of other symptoms, including including color blindness, failure to see to-and-fro movements, verbal dyslexia[strokecenter.org] Dysarthria is more prevalent in left than in right hemisphere lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the limbic system, and stroke is the only etiology of amnesia that can delineate the entire pathway of memory and critical convergence points.

  • Head Injury

    […] posterior section of the superior temporal gyrus.Damage to the Broca’s area typically produces symptoms like omitting functional words (agrammatism), sound production changes, dyslexia[en.wikipedia.org] This may be due to weak muscles, called dysarthria. Or, you may have problems controlling your muscles, called apraxia.[asha.org] Post-traumatic amnesia in a worker presenting with head trauma must be recognised by coworkers, so the cause of injury can be elicited early and the victim gets timely medical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neurosyphilis

    The patient was slightly disorientated (spatial) with dyscalculia apraxia, dyslexia and dysphasia. His BP was 120/80mm Hg. All other systems were clinically normal.[ijdvl.com] Pyramidal, and extrapyramidal signs, as well as dysarthria and impairment in coordination, were documented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnosis of neurosyphilis should be suspected in the presence of a global cognitive impairment consisting in disorientation, amnesia and severe impairment of speech and judgement[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Learning disability: An abnormal condition affecting children of normal or above-average intelligence, characterized by difficulty in learning fundamentals such as reading (dyslexia[childneurologyfoundation.org] 88%), eye movement abnormalities (particularly in later stages supranuclear horizontal or vertical gaze saccadic palsy) (78%), limb dystonia (77%), pyramidal signs (73%), dysarthria[neuroweb.us] […] format Abstract available MUCCIOLI L, Licchetta L, Stipa C, Tinuper P, et al Juvenile absence epilepsy relapsing as recurrent absence status, mimicking transient global amnesia[amedeo.com]

  • Apraxia

    The clinical features of interest were: limb apraxia, apraxia of speech (AOS), and left parietal symptoms of dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Related Problems Dysarthria Changes in muscle tone may accompany dysarthria.[csuchico.edu] She lost consciousness and experienced post-traumatic amnesia for approximately ten minutes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benzodiazepine

    There is a small risk of physical problems in the developing baby, such as: cleft palate urinary tract abnormalities heart abnormalities stomach abnormalities dyslexia (difficulty[mind.org.uk] Physical effects include vertigo, dysarthria, ataxia with falls, especially in the elderly. Dependence can supervene on long-term use, occasionally with dose escalation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The main effects of benzodiazepines are sedation, hypnosis, decreased anxiety, anterograde amnesia, centrally mediated muscle relaxation and anti-convulsant activity.[oadoi.org]

  • Temporal Lobe Tumor

    […] upper quadrantanopia (sector anopsia ) Complex hallucinations (smell, sound, vision, memory) Dominant hemisphere [ edit ] Receptive aphasia Wernicke's aphasia Anomic aphasia Dyslexia[en.wikipedia.org] , flickering of the eyes (nystagmus), and vomiting brain stem – may cause unsteadiness and difficulty walking, facial weakness, double vision , and difficulty speaking (dysarthria[nhs.uk] The difference between retrograde and anterograde amnesia is that retrograde amnesia is loss of memory from before an event.[patient.info]
