13 Possible Causes for Cerebellar Sign, Disturbance of Coordination, Interictal Downbeat Nystagmus

  • Acute Cerebellar Ataxia

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] Disorders of the blood vessels that supply blood to the cerebellum can also cause acute cerebellar ataxia. WHAT ARE SIGNS OF ACUTE CEREBELLAR ATAXIA?[medfriendly.com] It is the sudden onset of a disturbance in coordination. The cerebellum is the part of the brain that plays an important role in balance and coordination.[cookchildrens.org]

  • Episodic Ataxia

    According to Baloh and others (1997), EA2 is characterized by a progressive ataxia with interictal rebound nystagmus evoked by gaze, as well as downbeating nystagmus.[dizziness-and-balance.com] A new phenotype of episodic ataxia has been described, characterised clinically by a late onset and progressive permanent cerebellar signs, and genetically by exclusion of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ataxia is characterized by disturbances in the voluntary coordination of posture and movement.[healio.com]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6

    Initial examination disclosed a central type of positional nystagmus (conjugate downbeat nystagmus that did not fatigue with repeated positioning).[jnnp.bmj.com] Clinically, unsteadiness of gait was the main initial symptom, followed by vertigo and oscillopsia, and cerebellar signs were detected in nearly 100% of the patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Alcoholic Cerebellar Degeneration

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] Nine of the 14 patients (Group A) had clinical signs of alcoholic cerebellar degeneration, and the remaining 5 (Group B) did not have signs of alcoholic cerebellar degeneration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] ataxia of gait, and truncal instability, with generally preserved coordination of the upper extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebellar Ataxia with Peripheral Neuropathy Type 2

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] Syndromes of cerebellar degeneration typically manifest as subacute or chronic cerebellar neurological signs.[clinicaladvisor.com] Cortical Ataxias  FRONTAL LOBE ATAXIA refers to disturbed coordination due to dysfunction of the contralateral frontal lobe; -Results from disease involving the frontopontocerebellar[slideshare.net]

  • Early-Onset Cerebellar Ataxia

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] Apart from cerebellar signs and brisk knee jerks in all, other important findings were abnormal ocular movements (mostly impaired saccades) in 92.8%, Babinski's sign (78.6%[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Adult-Onset Autosomal Recessive Cerebellar Ataxia

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] A relatively important one is sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease that can present with predominantly cerebellar signs [ 8 ].[patient.info] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spinocerebellar Ataxia 8

    According to Baloh and others (1997), EA2 is characterized by a progressive ataxia with interictal rebound nystagmus evoked by gaze, as well as downbeating nystagmus.[tchain.com] We present a case of confirmed SCA 42 in a patient of German ancestry with slowly progressive cerebellar signs and cognitive impairment.[mdsabstracts.org] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 4

    Initial examination disclosed a central type of positional nystagmus (conjugate downbeat nystagmus that did not fatigue with repeated positioning).[jnnp.bmj.com] signs, whereas in the remaining 4 it developed after 6, 7, 8, and even 27 years of cerebellar ataxia progression.[movementdisorders.org] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Cognitive Impairment with or without Cerebellar Ataxia

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] signs present absent Fluctuations in attention or alertness present absent hallucinations present absent dysautonomia present absent Significant cognitive impairment or dementia[catalog.coriell.org] Ataxia is characterized by disturbances in the voluntary coordination of posture and movement.[healio.com]
