61 Possible Causes for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Long Tract Signs, Spastic Paralysis

  • Myelopathy

    00 Myelopathy is the clinical scenario of spinal cord compression causing upper motor neuron (UMN) neurologic dysfunction such as trouble walking, increased reflexes and spasticity[] Physical examination commonly elicits long tract signs such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, and abnormal reflexes such as Babinski or Hoffman's sign.[] tunnel syndrome.[]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    tract signs, ambulatory Class IIIB Objective weakness, long tract signs, non-ambulatory Japanese Orthopaedic Association Classification A point scoring system (17 total)[] tunnel syndrome. 4 Physicians should check for signs of myelopathy, particularly in patients who report neck pain, or arm or hand numbness.[] This case highlights the need to look for long tract signs of physical exam to explore possible causes of cervical myelopathy to account for weakness in the legs, which cannot[]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    A wide variety of insults to the corticospinal tract result in spastic paralysis . The hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs) are single gene disorders in which...[] tract signs, facial dysmorphism and adducted thumbs.[] There was a history of operations for bilateral hallux valgus, thoracic ossification of the yellow ligament, bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, bilateral ankle contracture,[]

  • Cervical Cord Compression

    […] spasms) Numbness Sensory changes Pain Weakness, paralysis Difficulty breathing because of weakness of the abdominal, diaphragm, or intercostal (rib) muscles CERVICAL (NECK[] RESULTS: Both the Chiari I and cervical compression groups had long tract signs evident on clinical neurological examination.[] Any local condition around the wrist joint that decreases the size of the carpal tunnel will also predispose to carpal tunnel syndrome.[]

  • Cervical Spinal Cord Injury

    But when the spinal cord is injured, paralysis may progress weeks later to involuntary, prolonged muscle spasms (called spastic paralysis).[] Symptoms of a C6 Level Spinal Cord Injury Patients with spinal cord tissue or nerve damage near the C6 vertebra often experience a false case of carpal tunnel syndrome.[] Etiology Jeffreys sees a correlation of cervical spondylosis to carpal tunnel syndrome, lateral humeral epicondylitis, cervical stenosis, and low-back and/or lower extremity[]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    The typical symptoms of cervical spondylosis consist of a radiating pain and stiffness of the neck or arms, restricted head movement, headaches, spastic paralysis, and weakness[] The clinical symptoms of cervical spondylotic amyotrophy (CSA) are motor loss or atrophy with an absent or insignificant sensory deficit or a long tract sign; however, the[] [Diagnostic pitfalls in carpal tunnel syndrome]. Rev Neurol (Paris). Jan 2011;167(1):64–71. CrossRef Google Scholar 12. DeMyer W.[]

  • Myelitis

    Your spinal inflammation symptoms can rapidly progress to: paralysis spasticity chronic pain bowel, bladder dysfunction urinary retention , incontinence As transverse myelitis[] The symptoms and signs depend on the level of the spinal cord affected and the extent of involvement of the long tracts.[] tunnel syndrome, mononeuritis multiplex, and autonomic and peripheral neuropathy. 2 - 4 Central nervous system complications of SSc are rare and usually arise secondary to[]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    There are also rare progressive, autosomal recessive upper motor neuron degenerations (Infantile –Onset Ascending Hereditary Spastic Paralysis, Juvenile Primary Lateral Sclerosis[] For example, a loss of Betz cells in the motor cortex and myelin pallor was found in the corticospinal tract (both UMN signs) in two patients with long-duration PMA, thought[] Similar Pages: Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation Leprosy Disease Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Exercises Modified Ashworth Scale Managing Fibromyalgia Return from Upper Motor Neuron[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paralysis is associated with mutations in the alsin gene. Am. J. Hum. Genet. 71, 518–527 (2002). 52. Chen, Y.Z. et al.[] , often asymmetrical); seldom significant long tract signs unless foramen magnum involved in addition MRI; CT with bone windows; no EMG evidence of CPD in limbs unless wasting[] tunnel syndrome), but absent in peripheral neuropathy ALS has normal sensory studies on EMG/NCS Treatment Nonoperative currently no cure or effective treatment goals of treatment[]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    This is characterized by spastic motor paralysis with hyperactive tendon reflexes, occasionally severe autonomic hyperreflexia, and some return of involuntary bladder function[] Etiology Jeffreys sees a correlation of cervical spondylosis to carpal tunnel syndrome, lateral humeral epicondylitis, cervical stenosis, and low-back and/or lower extremity[] When the cervical cord is injured, there is loss of sensation and flaccid paralysis. The lower limbs exhibit spastic paralysis.[]
