185 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Pyramidal Tract Signs

  • Stroke

    BACKGROUND: Impaired gait function after stroke contributes strongly to overall patient disability. Recently, sleep disturbance was reported to negatively affect functional recovery after stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the impact of sleep disturbance on balance and gait function in stroke[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We report a 49-year-old woman with a history of progressive gait disturbance, white matter disease, and cerebrospinal fluid immunoglobulin abnormalities who met criteria for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A history of exacerbation and remission of symptoms and the presence of greater than normal amounts of protein in cerebrospinal fluid are characteristic.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Myelitis

    She had a low-grade fever and headache without other clinical neurological abnormalities while at our hospital. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) showed mononuclear pleocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Results: The diagnosis was supported by abnormal MRI and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) findings in 52 patients (82.5%) and suspected in the remaining either because of a spinal[nature.com] Other laboratory tests indicated no apparent abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    Transverse myelitis (TM) is associated with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or radiographic abnormalities consistent with an inflammatory spinal cord lesion.[unboundmedicine.com] Results: The diagnosis was supported by abnormal MRI and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) findings in 52 patients (82.5%) and suspected in the remaining either because of a spinal[nature.com] fluid (CSF) abnormalities or lesions visible on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 1 Clinical symptoms of acute transverse myelitis may include motor, sensory and autonomic[nature.com]

  • Cervical Spinal Cord Tumor

    This procedure removes a sample of cerebrospinal fluid, which is tested for abnormal cells that may suggest the presence of a spinal cord tumor. Biopsy.[drugs.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Cerebrospinal fluid was tested extensively for infection and malignancy with no abnormal findings. She received five days of intravenous methylprednisolone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in the brain Lumbar puncture or spinal tap to determine if there are abnormalities in the cerebrospinal fluid, one of the signs of MS Evoked potentials test, which records[ucsfhealth.org] […] urine tests to help rule out other possible disorders Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) to measure electrical activity in the heart Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to look for abnormalities[ucsfhealth.org]

  • Thoracic Spinal Cord Tumor

    Weakness is due to the involvement of the pyramidal or corticospinal tract. The degree of motor impairment may range from clumsiness to complete quadriplegia.[neurospinewi.com] This procedure removes a sample of cerebrospinal fluid, which is tested for abnormal cells that may suggest the presence of a spinal cord tumor. Biopsy.[drugs.com] […] in the spine These tests may confirm spinal tumor: Cerebrospinal fluid ( CSF ) examination Cytology (cell studies) of CSF Myelogram Spinal CT Spine MRI Spine x-ray The goal[medlineplus.gov]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    […] antibodies in the cerebrospinal fluid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Immunoglobulin G antibodies against measles were strongly positive, with a high relative cerebrospinal fluid/serum ratio.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fluid Increased gammaglobulin levels in cerebrospinal fluid Causes of SSPE: The measles virus usually does not cause brain damage.[disabled-world.com]
