168 Possible Causes for Bilateral Leg Weakness, Hydrocephalus

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    Typical clinical central nervous system manifestations include cerebral infarction and hemorrhage, hydrocephalus, ataxia, spastic paralysis, convulsion, and dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    The patient stabilized for another 2 years but then presented in 1994 with recurrent headache, bilateral papilledema, and mild left arm and right leg weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the communicating hydrocephalus, there is a lack of reabsorption of CSF.[symptoma.com] We discuss communicating hydrocephalus in the current article, and the subsequent article deals with noncommunicating hydrocephalus.

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    Leg pain may occur and be unilateral or bilateral in nature that radiates from the back.[myvmc.com] […] progressive motor neuron disease, subacute combined degeneration, syringomyelia, spinal cord tumors, cerebral hemisphere disease, peripheral neuropathy and normal pressure hydrocephalus[necksolutions.com] Motor Weakness: This usually follows pain, the time frame for this sign is often variable, from hours to days, weeks or months.[myvmc.com]

    He has short stature, webbing of his hands, pulmonary stenosis, seizures and hydrocephalus along with developmental delay.[ggc.org] Hydrocephalus associated with glycogen storage disease type II (Pompe's disease). Pediatr Neurol . 1999 Sep. 21(3):674-6. [Medline] .[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Congenital Communicating Hydrocephalus

    Tone was increased in the legs with mild pyramidal pattern weakness, brisk reflexes, and bilateral extensor plantar responses. There was mild limb ataxia.[jnnp.bmj.com] […] with congenital communicating hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When hydrocephalus doesn't occur until later in life, it is called acquired hydrocephalus. This topic focuses on hydrocephalus that is present at birth (congenital).[myhealth.alberta.ca]

  • Arnold-Chiari Malformation Type I

    In symptomatic patients, it is associated with: spinal diseases - 50% of cases: syringomyelia hydromyelia cranial disorders - 10% of cases: obstructive hydrocephalus Links[gpnotebook.co.uk] It can lead to a spastic paralysis or weakness of the arms and/or legs as well as numbness and tingling.[nervous-system-diseases.com] Patients with atlantoaxial instability, tethered cord, associated myelomeningocele, hydrocephalus, or elevated intracranial pressure were excluded.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arachnoid Cyst

    Arachnoid cysts in the fourth ventricle may cause obstructive hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and numbness of bilateral legs and dysuria.[neurology.org] […] showed early and persistent ventricular reflux, poor progression of radiopharmaceutical over convexities, and delayed clearance in a pattern consistent with normal pressure hydrocephalus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    […] and weakness of the legs of 10 days' duration.[nejm.org] Brain computed tomography revealed tuberculomas (45%) and hydrocephalus (15%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Impaired resorption of cerebrospinal fluid from the arachnoid villi results in a communicating form of hydrocephalus.[bioportfolio.com]

  • Ependymoma

    Magnetic resonance imaging on admission revealed an intradural extramedullary cystic lesion at the cervical level with craniospinal leptomeningeal nodules causing mild hydrocephalus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Eric Kratky In January 2007, Erik Kratky was 21 and pursuing his undergraduate degree when he experienced bilateral leg weakness.[nursing.onclive.com] On brain MRI a posterior third ventricle lesion with extension to the aqueduct of Sylvius and fourth ventricle, and associated hydrocephalus was observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polymicrogyria

    The possible overlap between megalencephaly-polymicrogyria-polydactyly-hydrocephalus syndrome and other similar conditions is discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ben also has a right side weakness. His right hand and right leg are not as functional as his left side.[blessingsforbenjamin.com] Abstract Megalencephaly, polymicrogyria, and hydrocephalus (MPPH) syndrome is characterized by megalencephaly, perisylvian polymicrogyria, postaxial polydactyly, and hydrocephalus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
