309 Possible Causes for Cerebellar Stroke, Impaired Balance

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Cardiovascular system: atrial fibrillation, hypertension, strokes and cardiomyopathy with heart failure.[patient.info] Thus, acute alcohol intoxication resulted in inadequate balance control strategies with increased postural rigidity and impaired adaptation to perturbations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As intoxication becomes more severe, patients will exhibit an unsteady gait and impaired balance.[emsworld.com]

  • Vestibular Neuronitis

    In evaluating a patient with an acute vestibular syndrome, it is important not to miss a central cause, such as a brainstem or cerebellar stroke or hemorrhage, which could[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Viral infection is suspected to be the most common cause and symptoms are sudden onset of vertigo, nausea, vomiting, impaired balance and horizontal nystagmus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Normal head impulse test differentiates acute cerebellar strokes from vestibular neuritis. Neurology. 2008 Jun 10. 70(24 Pt 2):2378-85. [Medline].[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Meniere's Disease

    An anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) stroke is characterized by vertigo, tinnitus, and deafness in addition to facial weakness, hemiataxia, and hypalgesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, within the inner ear, an overproduction of or impaired absorption of lymphatic fluid in the labyrinth membrane where balance is maintained can upset the tiny hairy[aopa.org] Definition Meniere's disease or syndrome is a condition characterized by hearing impairment, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and periodic vertigo (disturbance of balance and[healthcentral.com]

  • Hereditary Cerebellar Degeneration

    Acquired ataxias may result from nonhereditary neurodegenerative disorders (eg, multiple system atrophy ), systemic disorders, multiple sclerosis, cerebellar strokes, repeated[msdmanuals.com] Dysfunction of the vestibulocerebellum ( flocculonodular lobe ) impairs the balance and the control of eye movements.[en.wikipedia.org] In patients with cerebellar stroke, intensive training for the upper limb with cerebellar ataxia can improve the upper function [ 17 ].[intechopen.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

  • Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency

    Vertigo is also a common symptom with brain stem and cerebellar strokes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Screening for vascular supply problems of the brain can assist in the clinician’s differential diagnosis and greatly benefit the dizzy and/or balance-impaired patient.[vestibular.org] Three weeks later, the patient suffered an extensive stroke in these same areas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Labyrinthitis

    Newman-Toker DE, Kattah JC, Alvernia JE, et al.: Normal head impulse test differentiates acute cerebellar strokes from vestibular neuritis.[doi.org] Avoiding medical evaluation for vestibular labyrinthitis or any other hearing or balance impairment related condition is not recommended, and can lead to permanent hearing[californiaearinstitute.com] Dizziness, nausea and loss of balance, especially on head movement, are the commonest symptoms and these will impair performance in sport until they settle.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    It demonstrates many of the same clinical and imaging features as cerebellar stroke.[doi.org] It can for example manifest as paralysis of a limb, loss of speech and / or vision, or impaired balance.[presse.inserm.fr] balance, postural hypotension, and, at high doses, bradycardia and general hypotension. 9 Marijuana-associated stroke has been reported in the literature, 4 , 5 , 10 – 15[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Basilar Migraine

    For a year I've been having episodes that appear to be stroke like or seizure like in nature.[medhelp.org] […] while walking) Paresthesias (numbness or “pins and needles” in the face, hands, or feet) Confusion Nausea Vomiting Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) or other hearing impairment[migravent.com] There are several theories -- vascular -- patients with migraine sometimes experience spasm of blood vessels, including occasional strokes.[dizziness-and-balance.com]

  • Herpes Zoster Oticus

    This is an unusual case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome complicated by bacterial meningitis, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and cerebellar stroke.[afmr.org] […] of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery region.[patient.info] Other conditions are viral labyrinthitis, possibly a stroke of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery region, -trigeminal neuralgia, postherpetic neuralgia, persistent idiopathic[biopublisher.ca]
