357 Possible Causes for Ataxia, Toe-Walking Gait

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    The patient presented with a slowly progressive illness with seizures, extrapyramidal symptoms, cerebellar ataxia, dementia, spasticity, myoclonic movements and a severe demyelinating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] on toes and unsteady gait.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although rare, cerebellar ataxia, behavioural abnormalities, parkinsonism and apraxia of eyelid opening were exclusively seen in late onset patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    BACKGROUND: Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is an autosomal recessive disease that consists of progressive cerebellar ataxia, variable immunodeficiency, sinopulmonary infections[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] one foot or leg dragging; walking on the toes, a crouched gait, or a “scissored” gait; and muscle tone that is either too stiff or too floppy.[ninds.nih.gov] OUTCOMES: Internal hip rotation and toe walking occurred when orthoses blocked digit extension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spastic Paraplegia Type 56

    "Autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia type I Clinical features and MRI in families with SCA1, SCA2 and SCA" (PDF) .[en.wikipedia.org] This pattern of hypertonicity is responsible for the classic gait with the affected person demonstrating circumduction and toe walking.[jnnp.bmj.com] Video gait analysis was performed, which showed internal rotation of the hips and feet while walking and running.[omicsonline.org]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spastic Paraplegia Type 26

    Palau F, Espinós C: Autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxias.[karger.com] Spastic walk 0002064 Spastic paraplegia 0001258 Toe walking Toe-walking 0040083 Showing of 37 Last updated: 12/1/2018 If you need medical advice, you can look for doctors[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] This pattern of hypertonicity is responsible for the classic gait with the affected person demonstrating circumduction and toe walking.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    After 3 months a mild ataxia in lower limbs and gait, especially in gait speed persisted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ask the patient to walk heel-to-toe (to elicit any gait ataxia). If there are unilateral signs - check V, VII, and VIII (cerebellopontine angle pathology).[patient.info] Furthermore, acute cerebellar ataxia was not associated with a loss of the common drive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Home, Search, Index, Links, Pathology, Molecules, Syndromes, Muscle, NMJ, Nerve, Spinal, Ataxia, Antibody & Biopsy, Patient Info DYSTROPHINOPATHIES: Duchenne Muscle biopsy[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] BMD can present in several ways: in children the first feature may be a toe walking gait or exercise-related cramps with or without myoglobinuria.[orpha.net] He made exact descriptions of cerebellar and sensory ataxia and syringomyelia.[whonamedit.com]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    We herein report the case of a 53-year-old man with cerebellar ataxia with anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody (GAD-Ab) who mimicked Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had no limb ataxia but exhibited a slightly wide-based gait with difficulty walking heel-to-toe.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We propose that dysgeusia in acute-onset ataxia cases may constitute an important clinical feature to aid in the diagnosis of the incomplete form of MFS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Recessive Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2I

    7 ORPHA610 G71.2 120220 Tubular aggregate myopathy 1 ORPHA2593 G71.3 160565 Desminopathy 10 ORPHA98909 G71.8 601419 Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 3 ORPHA803 G12.2 105400 cerebellar[catalogue.rd-connect.eu] Quality of gait: proximal weakness typically results in waddling (Trendelenberg) gait and toe walking. Gower maneuver may be present. Frequency of trips and falls.[now.aapmr.org] LGMD2B: Patients may have early weakness and/or atrophy of the gastrocnemius (might be detected only on MRI), inability to walk on toes, waddling gait, atrophic distal biceps[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    Gov't MeSH terms Adrenal Cortex Hormones/therapeutic use Adult Aged Aged, 80 and over Ataxia/blood Ataxia/complications Ataxia/drug therapy Ataxia/immunology* Autoantibodies[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient was unable to walk on his heels, had mild difficulty with toe walking, and had a waddling gait that was slightly wide based.[acgcasereports.gi.org] Twenty-eight patients (74%) presented with sensory ataxia, 16 (42%) showed tremor, 5 (13%) presented with cerebellar ataxia associated with nystagmus, 3 (8%) had demyelinating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rett Syndrome

    Mutations in the P/Q type calcium channel CACNA1A have been implicated in epileptic encephalopathy, familial hemiplegic migraine, episodic ataxia 2, and spinocerebellar ataxia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Shaky, unsteady, stiff gait or toe walking. Seizures. Slowing head growth beginning at 5 to 6 months of age. Loss of normal sleep patterns.[nlm.nih.gov] RTT clinical expression is typically characterized by loss of purposeful hand movements, severe mental retardation and motor impairment, breathing disorders, ataxia and increased[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
