A helpful guide for coping with and caring for individuals experiencing the behavioral symptoms of HD. Paulsen, J.[web.stanford.edu] Unlike cerebellar ataxias, determining the precise age at onset of disease in Huntington disease ( Penney et al ., 1990 ) may be difficult due to the overlap of psychiatric[doi.org]

  • Subacute Combined Degeneration of Spinal Cord

    It causes ataxia of stance and gait with relative sparing of the arms. It has an insidious onset and a subacute or chronic course.[neuropathologyweb.org] Midline cerebellar degeneration (also referred to as alcoholic cerebellar degeneration) is a component of WKS, but may also occur alone.[neuropathologyweb.org]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    GA usually presents with pure cerebellar ataxia primarily affecting gait and lower limbs.[dx.doi.org] Some behavioral problems are extreme irritability, feeding difficulties, persistent gagging or choking when fed after 6 months of age especially if the tongue pushes the food[web.archive.org] Children with CP may have additional problems, including the following: Seizures Vision, hearing, or speech problems Learning disabilities and behavior problems Mental retardation[web.archive.org]

  • Cerebral Palsy with Spastic Diplegia

    ., hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, bilateral ankle clonus, extensor toe signs)[see above].[childneurologyfoundation.org] Ataxia is associated with cerebellar lesions. Ataxia is often combined with spastic diplegia. Most ataxic children can walk but some need walkers.[physio-pedia.com] Children with CP may also have additional problems, including: seizures vision loss or impairment hearing loss or impairment speech impairment learning disabilities behavioral[childrenshospital.org]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    The deep tendon reflexes were increased in all four limbs, but Babinski sign was not elicited bilaterally. Neither ankle nor knee clonus was observed.[nature.com] Main inclusion criteria for HA were cerebellar gait and/or limb ataxia, and for HSP, spasticity in the lower limbs, brisk reflexes and positive Babinski sign [ 11, 12 ].[journals.plos.org] Another five patients had behavioral problems in childhood. Brain MRIs from nine patients were available for review.[nature.com]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    ataxia, gait abnormalities, dementia, dysarthria, ocular dysmetria, and hyporeflexia or areflexia in the lower extremities.[doi.org] Memory problems, behavior changes, vision problems, and poor muscle coordination progress quickly to dementia , coma, and death. Most patients die within a year.[medlineplus.gov] A 62-year-old man presented with abnormal behavior and cognitive impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia

    Hoffman sign and ankle clonus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All patients have gait ataxia and the majority have lower limb ataxia.[doi.org] Behavioral problems are seen in most patients with dementia and are often poorly characterized in the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy

    The patient was diagnosed as having bilateral ankle clonus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , including ataxia and dysmetria JC virus encephalopathy presents with global cerebrocortical dysfunction accompanied by seizures ( Cleve Clin J Med 2011;78:S8 ) Diagnosis[pathologyoutlines.com] Behavioral health problems including depression, suicidal thoughts or hallucinations.[tysabri.com]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    Reflexes were hyperreflexic but symmetric in the upper extremities with unsustained ankle clonus. Extensor toe signs were absent.[dx.doi.org] A Japanese male patient presented with gait disturbance at the age of 69 years. His principal symptom was cerebellar ataxia for several years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient presented with loss of recent memory, abnormal behavior and change in personality at the age of 60. The symptoms were progressive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
