214 Possible Causes for Catatonia, Dystonia

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    Catatonia and neuroleptic malignant syndrome can be distinguished, at least on a descriptive level. There is a strong syndromal overlap.[] We compare this case with the other documented cases of acute dystonia and NMS after initiating aripiprazole in the pediatric population.[] We describe a patient with dystonia and psychotic symptoms treated with standard doses of antipsychotics, who developed neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS).[]

  • Huntington's Disease

    For example, prompt administration of ECT to treat neuroleptic malignant syndrome and malignant catatonia is necessary to improve a patient's overall prognosis and potentially[] Chorea and dystonia are features that may be troublesome to some patients and may potentially prove unresponsive to pharmacological treatments.[] Deep brain stimulator (DBS) implantation has been shown to be effective in the treatment of various movement disorders including Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia[]

  • Primary Torsion Dystonia

    […] interference between psychiatric diseases and movement disorders, such as dystonia, were discussed even at the dawn of modern psychiatry by Kahlbaum in the original description of catatonia[] Primary torsion dystonia (PTD) is a genetically heterogeneous, isolated form of dystonia.[] Linkage analysis in one form of autosomal dominant torsion dystonia permits the assignment of a "torsion dystonia locus" to the long arm of chromosome 9.[]

  • Drug-induced Dystonia

    […] presence of several mimickers including partial seizures, meningitis, localized tetanus, serum electrolyte level abnormalities, strychnine poisoning, angioedema, malingering, catatonia[] For all patients at risk, dystonia was more common in men and in younger patients.[] […] dystonia recognizes several mimickers, including partial seizures, meningitis, localized tetanus, electrolyte disturbances, strychnine poisoning, angioedema, simulation, catatonia[]

ActaNeurochirSuppl 97:207-214.[]

  • Movement Disorder

    Huntington's disease and other choreas Tourette syndrome (including associated OCD and ADHD symptoms) Startle syndromes Myoclonus Ataxia Medication-induced movement disorders Catatonia[] Adult-onset dystonia (AOD) may manifest in focal forms (as blepharospasm, oromandibular dystonia, cervical dystonia, laryngeal dystonia, and hand dystonia) or in segmental[] We retrospectively analysed Diffusion Tensor Imaging for 31 CAYP selected for DBS surgery (14 primary dystonia, 17 secondary dystonia) and 10 CAYP selected for ITB surgery[]

  • Reserpine

    […] vasodilatation), motor disturbances (apparently of the extrapyramidal system characterized by stiffness with aching pain in the legs, tremors and various types of dystonia and catatonia[] We report that low dose reserpine treatment (0.25 mg/day for 7 days) improves the dystonic-dyskinetic disability score in patients affected by idiopathic dystonias, iatrogenic[] […] peripheral vasodilatation), motor disturbances (apparently of the extrapyramidal system characterized by stiffness with aching pain in the legs, tremors and various types of dystonia[]

  • Overdose

    At this point, the patient developed new slurred speech and later catatonia.[] Acute dystonia is a hyperkinetic movement disorder that manifests as intermittent or sustained muscle contractions.[] The common clinical manifestations of acute dystonia include trismus, torticollis, facial grimacing, opisthotonus, and oculogyric crisis.[]

Clauss RP, Guldenpfennig WM, Nel HW, Sathekge MM, Venkannagari RR.[] Cervical dystonia (CD) was diagnosed according to standardised clinical criteria. CD was scored using the Tsui score.[] Jaw-opening dystonia Blepharospasm, orobuccal dystonia, antecollis Dystonic lingual tremor, jaw-opening dystonia Facial dystonia, oromandibular dystonia, dystonic posture[]
