126 Possible Causes for Ataxia, Lower and Upper Limbs Affected, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Familial Infantile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    One fifth of patients have photosensitivity, with myoclonic jerks precipitated by photic stimulation.[] Syndrome (FXTAS); Lysosomal Storage Diseases; Psychiatric Disorders; Dominant Spinocerebellar Ataxias; Metabolic Disorders; Friedreich Ataxia; ALS; Dementia; Neuromuscular[] […] syndrome disease characterized by neonatal- to infancy-onset myoclonic focal seizures occurring in various members of a family, associated in some with mild dysarthria, ataxia[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Blood from ND patients with PD, ALS and Ataxia with movement dysfunctions were obtained to analyse mRNA and protein expressions of the above mentioned factors in lymphocytes[] Approximately 2/3 of patients with ALS show the spinal form of the disease (limb injuries) characterised by weakness and muscular loss in lower and upper limbs.[] A 75-year-old female patient presented with cerebellar ataxia, bulbar palsy and cognitive impairment.[]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    By the jerk-locked averaging method, a positive spike time-locked to the myoclonic jerk was demonstrated in four patients before 15-20 msec of myoclonic jerk.[] ataxia and dementia.[] Attacks may last several minutes to half an hour and more frequently affect the lower than upper limbs.[]

  • Myoclonic Jerking

    ., 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.[] ataxia FLVCR1 Ataxia, posterior column, with retinitis pigmentosa FMR1 Premature ovarian failure FXN Friedreich ataxia GBA2 Cerebellar ataxia with spasticity GFAP Alexander[] Attacks may last several minutes to half an hour and more frequently affect the lower than upper limbs.[]

  • Restless Legs Syndrome

    GA usually presents with pure cerebellar ataxia, occasionally in combination with sensory ataxia [ 8 ] or, rarely, ataxia in combination with myoclonus [ 9, 10, 11 ].[] Complying with an irresistible urge to move the affected limbs brings temporary relief. Sleep may become disrupted, resulting in excessive daytime hypersomnolence.[] A disorder characterized by aching or burning sensations in the lower and rarely the upper extremities that occur prior to sleep or may awaken the patient from sleep.[]

  • Acute Cerebellar Ataxia

    Four weeks later he developed myoclonic jerks. Electroencephalogram showed characteristic periodic complexes time-locked with myoclonus.[] Acute Cerebellar ataxia is a diagnosis of exclusion.[] Lower limbs were affected more than the upper limbs and the mean delay between the onset and fever and onset of cerebellar ataxia was 13 days.[]

  • Nocturnal Myoclonus Syndrome

    It has frequently been confused with, and should be clearly differentiated from, other normal jerking movements of sleep, such as partial myoclonic jerks and massive myoclonic[] ataxia, deafness syndrome Nocturnal myoclonus Non-epileptic myoclonus O/E - myoclonus Oculopalatal myoclonus Opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome Palatal myoclonus Palatal-tympanic[] Attacks may last several minutes to half an hour and more frequently affect the lower than upper limbs.[]

  • Ataxia Telangiectasia

    Our findings highlight the importance of recognizing dystonic-myoclonic jerks as one of the extrapyramidal signs of classic A-T.[] Ataxia-telangiectasia is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by progressive cerebellar ataxia, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, immunodeficiency, high incidence of[] Presentation is usually by the age of 2 years and ataxia of both upper and lower limbs develops, such that by early teenage most patients require a wheelchair for mobility[]

  • Adult-Onset Cervical Dystonia Type DYT23

    In most affected individuals myoclonic jerks are dramatically but transiently ameliorated by intake of alcohol.[] Cerebellar ataxia with mental retardation and dysequilibrium syndrome type 2 WDR81 Cerebellar ataxia with spasticity GBA2 Cerebellar ataxia, mental retardation, and dysequilibrium[] Limbs may be affected as well, and specific voluntary tasks may intensify such contractions.[]

  • Prion Disease

    There were no myoclonic jerks on examination and no periodic sharp waves by electroencephalography.[] Why this family with prion disease (PrP-A117V) should present with ataxia instead of dementia, which was found in two previously identified families with the same PrP gene[] […] and lower limb ataxia, dystonic posturing of the right foot, brisk reflexes, and a wide-based gait.[]
