61 Possible Causes for Bilateral Leg Weakness, Transient Ischemic Attack

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    What is TTR-FAP and who gets it? Approximately 10,000, or 1.1 per 100,000 people in the world, are estimated to be living with TTR-FAP, which often shows up when patients are in their thirties or forties. TTR-CM tends to affect older males, ie., men who are 65 or older. However, many cases of both forms of the[…][pfizer.com]

  • Moyamoya Disease

    Eight days later he awoke with speech disturbance and weakness on the left arm and leg. Upon examination he had a mild left hemiparesis and dysarthria.[scielo.br] BACKGROUND: Despite being the most common presentation in children with moyamoya, transient ischemic attack (TIA) in children has rarely been described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ischemic attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syncope

    However, basilar artery ischemia, due to transient ischemic attack or migraine, may cause syncope.[merckmanuals.com] The isoproterenol tilt testing is contraindicated in patients with ischemic heart disease. 2 Limitations to the head-up tilt test include: inability to stand (leg weakness[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Neurologic syncope Neurologic syncope is caused by a neurological condition such as seizure, stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA).[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Vasovagal Syncope

    Neurologic syncope Neurologic syncope is caused by a neurological condition such as seizure, stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA).[my.clevelandclinic.org] The isoproterenol tilt testing is contraindicated in patients with ischemic heart disease. 2 Limitations to the head-up tilt test include: inability to stand (leg weakness[clevelandclinicmeded.com] ischemic attack (TIA) or other rare causes including migraines and normal pressure hydrocephalus; orthostatic hypotension, an inability to maintain normal blood pressure[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Todd Paralysis

    Our case showed bilateral leg weakness, and this weakness recovered completely within 48 hours.[link.springer.com] The man, who had been arrested on felony arson charges, complained of difficulties concentrating and of recent memory disturbances with leg weakness.[link.springer.com] Todd’s paralysis describes focal weakness in a part of the body after a seizure.[link.springer.com]

  • Carotid Stenosis

    We report a 52-year-old man who presented with aphasia, right hemiparesis, mild left leg weakness, and bilateral Babinski's signs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Asterixis as limb-shaking transient ischemic attack (TIA) is rare and poorly understood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These patients are at significant risk for transient ischemic attack and stroke. This rare complication merits operative repair.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningovascular Syphilis

    The present symptoms started with slight weakness of bilateral legs after he was awake. He felt dizzy and had difficulty in standing up from bed and walking.[file.scirp.org] THE CASE PRESENTATION A 40-year-old male patient was brought to the Emergency Room (ER) at 18:00 after progressive muscle weakness since morning.[file.scirp.org]

  • Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

    Possible mechanism of transient ischemic attacks in this patient is thought to be a transient functional disturbance due to a temporal reduction of tissue perfusion in the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus classically presents with bilateral leg weakness, as the superior sagittal sinus is midline.[casemed.case.edu] This case also extends the clinical spectrum of cerebral sinus thrombosis to include recurrent transient ischemic attacks alternating with seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Epidural Hematoma

    Most patients of SSEH present with paraplegia or tetraplegia clinically, but recurrent hemiparesis with complete spontaneous recovery, mimicking transient ischemic attack[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her exam is significant for bilateral lower extremity weakness, with 2/5 strength in both legs.[emdocs.net] In the springboard case, from the March 22, 2017, edition of JBJS Case Connector, Yamaguchi et al. report on a 90-year-old woman with a history of transient ischemic attacks[orthobuzz.jbjs.org]

  • Cardiogenic Syncope

    Surprisingly, neurologic causes such as transient ischemic attack or seizure disorders are an uncommon cause of syncope.[eplabdigest.com] The isoproterenol tilt testing is contraindicated in patients with ischemic heart disease. 2 Limitations to the head-up tilt test include: inability to stand (leg weakness[clevelandclinicmeded.com] However, basilar artery ischemia, due to transient ischemic attack or migraine, may cause syncope.[merckmanuals.com]
