190 Possible Causes for Axial Rigidity

  • Stiff-Person Syndrome

    Stiff person syndrome is a neurologic disorder characterized by axial rigidity leading to progressive disability, with broad clinical spectrum.[] They all share the core clinical features of appendicular and axial rigidity caused by continuous involuntary motor unit activity, and superimposed stimulus-sensitive spasms[] When strict diagnostic criteria are used, patients with the stiff man syndrome uniformly have axial rigidity, and about 90% are found to have antibodies against glutamic acid[]

  • Classic Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Syndrome

    Clifford Richardson identified patients in Toronto with a syndrome of supranuclear vertical gaze palsy, pseudobulbar palsy, axial rigidity-in-extension, and cognitive impairment[] Later, axial rigidity, and facial immobility can occur, and supranuclear downgaze paresis may emerge after a decade.[] Axial rigidity is often a striking early feature, limb rigidity is more common and severe than in RS where muscle tone may be normal.[]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    Her case was complicated by poor ability to visually track objects, axial rigidity, retropulsion, poor postural control with reaching and declines in cognitive awareness.[] On examination, supranuclear horizontal and vertical gaze palsies, axial rigidity, bradykinesia, and generalized hyperreflexia were present.[] Later, axial rigidity, and facial immobility can occur, and supranuclear downgaze paresis may emerge after a decade.[]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    With respect to Cartesian coordinates in the reference image plane, its elements are This strain tensor is zero for any rigid body motion (translation or rotation).[] Results Tagged images were obtained in a sagittal plane approximately 1 cm lateral to the midline, and in an axial plane roughly tangent to the inferior limits of the corpus[]

  • Endometriosis

    […] and sagittal convex high‐frequency probe with or without a rigid linear probe or a flexible endoscope with lateral view and a convex high frequency echo probe Participants[] […] to produce a multi‐planar image in 3 planes: longitudinal, transverse and coronal TRUS (transrectal ultrasonography) Equipment: An ultrasound scanner with a 2‐dimensional axial[]

  • Pleuropulmonary Blastoma

    […] and axial muscles, and leading to progressive disability.[] Stiff person syndrome is a rare autoimmune, neurological disorder characterized by progressive rigidity and episodic painful spasms, predominantly affecting the proximal limbs[]

  • Parkinson's Disease

    rigidity (eg, stiff neck) more than appendicular rigidity Early dementia Supranuclear gaze palsy Unusual movements besides tremor, eg, limb dystonia, myoclonus, limb levitation[] ., fludrocortisone Progressive supranuclear palsy Early falls backwards, cognitive or behavioural changes Gaze palsy (down more than up), axial rigidity, frontal and pyramidal[] Clinical features that suggest a diagnosis other than Parkinson disease include 1 : Poor response to adequate dosages of levodopa Early onset of postural instability and falls Axial[]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    , and gait difficulty Axial posture becomes progressively flexed and strides become shorter Postural instability (balance impairment) is a late phenomenon Nonmotor symptoms[] […] include the following: Typically asymmetric The most common initial finding is a resting tremor in an upper extremity Over time, patients experience progressive bradykinesia, rigidity[]
