226 Possible Causes for Ataxia, Progressive Loss of Vision, Vegetative State

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

    We suggest CLN genes should be considered in the molecular analyses of patients presenting with adult-onset autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia.[] state) or were too ill to travel.[] Most childhood forms of NCL are clinically characterized by progressive loss of vision as well as mental and motor deterioration, epileptic seizures, and premature death,[]

  • Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy

    Long-Chain Fatty Acids-4 (ELOVL4; Pseudo-Sjogren-Larsson) Extensive Cerebral White Matter Abnormality without Clinical Symptoms Familial Adult-Onset Leukodystrophy Manifesting as Cerebellar[] Social contact diminishes; at the end stage of the disease, the patient is in a vegetative state and dies after several years.[] Refsum disease is characterized by progressive loss of vision (retinitis pigmentosa); degenerative nerve disease (peripheral neuropathy); failure of muscle coordination (ataxia[]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    A 5-year-old boy presented with acute-onset cerebellar ataxia without associated encephalopathy, focal motor deficits, seizures or cognitive decline.[] state.[] The authors here report a case of a 3-year-old child who presented with vision loss followed 15 months later by quadriparesis with bladder involvement.[]

  • Late-Infantile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

    Spinocerebellar ataxias are phenotypically, neuropathologically, and genetically heterogeneous.[] Patients who cannot take nourishment orally or who are in a vegetative state will not be enrolled in this study even if the 6 months to 3 year age criterion is met.[] loss of vision Progressive vision loss Progressive visual impairment Slowly progressive visual loss Vision loss, progressive Visual loss, progressive [ more ] 0000529 Retinal[]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Type 7

    Clinical manifestations include progressive cognitive decline, motor impairment, ataxia, visual loss, seizures and early death.[] There is no cure available - treatment focus on management of symptoms - with patients progressing to a vegetative state and death 2,4 .[] Signs and symptoms of the condition generally develop in early childhood (average age 5 years) and may include loss of muscle coordination ( ataxia ), seizures that do not[]

  • Pontine Glioma

    Children with pontine glioma usually present classically with ataxia, motor deficits and cranial nerve palsies.[] The most common symptom of an optic pathway glioma is progressive vision loss.[] The patient was a 7-year-old boy who initially presented with a history of left facial palsy, double vision, headache, and ataxia.[]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Type 10

    Grants & Projects Periventricular leukomalacia: neuroimaging, neuropathology, and clinical features Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis: molecular diagnosis and pathogenesis Ataxia[] There is no cure available - treatment focus on management of symptoms - with patients progressing to a vegetative state and death 2,4 .[] JB disease first manifests as ataxia, progressive developmental milestone losses, epilepsy, and posterior vision losses in children of 2-4 years of age.[]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Absence of rest tremor, early occurrence of gait difficulty, postural instability, dementia, hallucinations, and the presence of dysautonomia, ophthalmoparesis, ataxia and[] […] and 239 controls) in a case-control study in western Washington State. b All assessed edible Solanaceae: green, yellow or red peppers, tomatoes, tomato juice, and baked or[] This may lead to blurred vision; dark, floating spots in the vision; and progressive vision loss.[]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    After 3 months a mild ataxia in lower limbs and gait, especially in gait speed persisted.[] To conclude, the results of the present study demonstrated that more than a third of patients with cerebellar stroke have poor outcomes such as death, vegetative state and[] It refers to an increase in pressure inside the head, which can lead to loss of vision and changes in the optic nerves -- findings which can also be caused by true brain tumors[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Common symptoms include visual impairment, ataxia, hemiparesis, and aphasia.[] Protein S deficiency associated with progressive loss of vision and intracranial venous sinus thrombosis. J Chin Med Assoc 2004; 67(10):521-526. 27.[] Possible neurological signs include hemiparesis, weakness of the lower limbs, sometimes bilaterally, aphasia, ataxia, chorea and hemianopia.[]
