29 Possible Causes for Broad-Based Gait, Positive Romberg Sign

  • Subacute Combined Degeneration of Spinal Cord

    His gait was broad based with spinal ataxia. Decreased graphaesthesia was found on the lower limbs, the lower part of the trunk and on the upper limbs.[] ; and a positive Romberg test.[] Older age, sensory deficits, anemia, positive Romberg and Babinski signs are negatively correlated with complete resolution.[]

  • Tabes Dorsalis

    The patient's ataxia was evident as she walked with a broad-based gait.[] Romberg's sign. 05:36 And as you know, a positive Romberg is a measure of how the posterior columns are working. 05:45 So you have the patient stand with feet together, hands[] The Romberg sign was positive and the gait was ataxic and high stepping.[]

  • Diabetic Pseudotabes

    In addition to the broad-based, stamping gait, which becomes worse when patients try to walk in the dark, abnormal findings included diminished vision owing to optic atrophy[] Romberg's sign Diminished proprioception & vibration[] […] and vibration sensibility Tabetic gait; positive Romberg sign Absent reflexes Frequent foot ulcers and arthropathy Mononeuritis or Mononeuritis Multiplex General features[]

  • Ataxia Telangiectasia

    In addition, the spinal signs involving posterior and lateral columns along the positive Romberg's sign (inability to maintain balance when the eyes are shut and feet are[] These patients do, however, have scoliosis and a positive Romberg's sign.[]

  • Hereditary Areflexic Dystasia

    Romberg sign Gliosis Adult onset Congestive heart failure Limb ataxia Impaired vibratory sensation Acidosis Myelin tomacula Dystonia Sensorineural hearing impairment Hearing[] […] deterioration Confusion Rigidity Hypertonia Spasticity Gait instability, worse in the dark Distal sensory impairment of all modalities Distal sensory loss of all modalities Positive[]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    The unsteadiness further progresses to a broad-based,… Read More mitochondrial disorders In metabolic disease: Mitochondrial disorders …iron homeostasis is present in Friedreich[] With progression, gait becomes broad-based, with frequent losses of balance requiring intermittent and then constant support.[] During adolescence, the gait becomes progressively unsteady—frequently interpreted as clumsiness.[]

  • Bickerstaff Brainstem Encephalitis

    Truncal ataxia Impaired vibratory sensation Broad-based gait Brisk reflexes Ankle clonus Head tremor Abnormal pyramidal sign Jerky ocular pursuit movements Coma Hepatomegaly[] Romberg sign * Depression * Dysphagia * Nystagmus * Reduced position sense * Mild cognitive impairment * Reduced vibration sense * Balance problems * Frequent falls * Muscle[] Romberg's sign .[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Sensory Ataxia

    A combination of any of the following features may occur: Gait: broad based, staggering & swaying, unsteady, Truncal ataxia: inability to sit or stand without support Dysmetria[] A loss of balance upon eye closure is a positive Romberg sign and is interpreted as indicating a deficit in proprioception.[] Romberg's sign .[]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    The final model included age (relative risk [RR] 0.924, p 0.0001), smoking status (RR 0.837, p 0.0043), broad-based unstable gait (RR 0.869, p 0.0036), and duration of symptoms[] She had mute Babinski signs, negative Romberg and Lhermitte signs (an electrical shock-like sensation with neck flexion), and normal vibratory and position senses.[] RESULTS: Numb hands and Hoffmann sign were associated with greater MSCC ( P .05); broad-based, unstable gait, impairment of gait, and Hoffmann sign were associated with greater[]
