238 Possible Causes for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Dementia

    KEYWORDS: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Positron emission tomography; Tau[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: Blood samples were collected from a family affected by ataxia, dementia, and parkinsonism, but not amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] leads to the death of neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as ALS or motor neurone disease) and a common form of frontotemporal dementia.[cam.ac.uk]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    During the patient's hospital course, his clinical condition deteriorated with myoclonic jerks, fevers and severe encephalopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Foci of motor neuron disease in high incidence in isolated populations of East Asia and the Western Pacific. In Human Motor Neuron Diseases (ed. Rowland , L.[doi.org] Myoclonic jerks and increased muscle tone were noticed 3 months after the onset.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Abstract Alzheimer disease (AD), Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTD), Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson disease (PD) have a certain degree of clinical,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 36 hours of donepezil remission, the frequency of the myoclonic jerks was sharply reduced. The patient remains asymptomatic after 6 months of follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aluminum has been associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and dialysis encephalopathy.[doi.org]

  • Central Nervous System Disorder

  • Familial Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy

    jerks may occur as a component of an absence seizure or at the onset of a GTCS Early Infantile Myoclonic Encephalopathy (Otohara Syndrome) General features: Initial seizures[neurodiffdx.com] lateral sclerosis, Frontotemporal lobar degeneration-motor neuron disease, Spinal muscular atrophy, distal SORL1 Early-onset Alzheimer disease TARDBP Amyotrophic lateral[genda.com.ar] Overview Benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy is an inherited epileptic syndrome characterized by cortical hand tremors , myoclonic jerks, and rare convulsive seizures[medlink.com]

  • Myoclonic Jerking

    lateral sclerosis, Frontotemporal lobar degeneration-motor neuron disease, Spinal muscular atrophy, distal SORL1 Early-onset Alzheimer disease TARDBP Amyotrophic lateral[genda.com.ar] ., adj myoclon ic. A single myoclonic arm or leg jerk is normal when the person is falling asleep. Myoclonic jerks are severe with grand mal seizures.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] These involuntary jerks are a symptom and not a disease. Myoclonic jerks are usually caused by some type of central nervous system ( brain and spinal cord ) disturbance.[healthblurbs.com]

  • Hypoparathyroidism

    INTRODUCTION: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) carries a grim prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Here we report an adolescent female who presented with atonic and absence seizures and myoclonic jerks and was later diagnosed as having myoclonic-absence seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The latter is the only drug with proven, albeit modest, efficacy in the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] neuron disease; NAA/Cr; SMA; Spinal muscular atrophy; TE; TSD; TSE; Tay–Sachs disease; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography; hexosaminidase[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
