129 Possible Causes for Amnesia, Extremity Ataxia, Progressive Polyneuropathy

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    peripheral neuropathy, and spinal degeneration.[] In later stages, spasticity, extensor plantar responses, greater loss of position and vibratory sensation in the lower extremities, and ataxia emerge.[] This can consequentially lead to very severe symptoms of deficiency, ranging from depression over the destruction of nerves in limbs and the spinal cord to severe amnesia.[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (ataxia, confusion, ophthalmoplegia), amnesic problems, peripheral neuropathy and dementia.[] Abstract Korsakoff syndrome (KS) is characterized by dense anterograde and retrograde amnesia.[] Alcoholic Korsakoff's Syndrome; An Information Processing Approach to Amnesia . Academic Press, New York. Google Scholar Carlen, P. L. (1982).[]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    We describe a case of a young black woman with gradually progressive lower extremity paresthesias, weakness, and ataxia as the primary presenting symptoms of pernicious anemia[] The syndrome has 2 components: Wernicke’s encephalopathy (WE), and Korsakoff’s amnesia (KA).[] ), ataxia and positive Babinski reflexes.[]

  • Subacute Combined Degeneration of Spinal Cord

    Case Presentation: A 28‐year‐old nursing student with a history of bipolar disorder presented to Tucson Medical Center with symptoms of ataxia and bilateral lower‐extremity[] The syndrome has 2 components: Wernicke’s encephalopathy (WE), and Korsakoff’s amnesia (KA).[] He presented acutely with tremors, diaphoresis, insomnia, ataxia (progressive over the last three months), lower extremity paresthesias, decreased somatosensory perception[]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    We report a fatal case of severe chronic progressive axonal polyradiculoneuropathy in association with this antibody.[] Cerebellar symptoms : ataxia, unsteady gait, dysdiadochokinesia, intention tremor Note that symptoms often emerge months before the discovery of a primary tumor ![] Limbic encephalitis Limbic encephalitis (LE) is usually seen in association with SCLC and presents with amnesia, seizures, agitation, and an altered mental state, often on[]

  • Thiamine Deficiency

    Nerve conduction studies were consistent with axonal, length-dependent polyneuropathy.[] Symptoms -loss of memory: retrograde amnesia -inability to form new memories: anterograde amnesia -confabulation: the patient makes up stories which are taken as true due[] Hippocampal damage in human adults causes all manner of amnesias and aphasias (speaking and language comprehension deficits) and is found in neurodegenerative disorders like[]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Convert to ICD-10-CM : 356.4 converts directly to: 2015/16 ICD-10-CM G60.3 Idiopathic progressive neuropathy Approximate Synonyms Idiopathic progressive neuropathy Polyneuropathy[] There are only sensory symptoms, e.g. sensory ataxia, numbness and pain.[] Prompt thiamine supplement therapy was initiated and both patients gradually recovered, however mild amnesia was still noted 6 months later.[]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    Nerve conduction studies were consistent with axonal, length-dependent polyneuropathy.[] (WE) is a medical emergency caused by thiamine deficiency, characterized by cerebellar ataxia, ophthalmoplegia, and cognitive disturbances that may progress to Korsakoff amnesia[] The classic triad of Wernicke encephalopathy consists of altered consciousness, ophthalmoplegia, and ataxia.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare condition in pregnancy which is characterised by symmetrical progressive ascending polyneuropathy.[] , and loss of deep tendon reflexes with relative sparing of strength in the extremities and trunk.[] We describe a 24-year-old previously healthy male presenting with behavioral symptoms including depression, anxiety, and amnesia, and autonomic dysfunction which preceded[]

  • Alcohol Hallucinosis

    […] of a superimposed chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) has to be considered.[] At that time, he had gait ataxia with signs of upper motor neuron damage in all extremities.[] […] frequently sleep disorders, transient cerebral ischemia, paroxysmal movement disorders, endocrine or metabolic dysfunction, delirium, psychiatric conditions or transient global amnesia[]
