  • Ataxia

    Here, we report a Han Chinese family with SCA18; the family members presented with a slowly progressing gait ataxia, pyramidal tract signs, and peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are some specific gaits: the waddling gait of hip girdle weakness; the steppage gait of foot-drop; the swinging gait of quadriceps weakness; and the circumducting or[dartmouth.edu] Although cerebellar ataxia is the prominent symptom in SAOA, patients often have additional nonataxia signs, including pyramidal tracts signs, decreased or absent ankle reflexes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemiparesis

    Also, myoclonus or tremor is seen in up to 38% patients, hyperreflexia and other pyramidal tract signs in 85% patients and psychosis, visual hallucinations and paranoid delusions[ijcasereportsandimages.com] With mild hemiparesis, loss of normal arm swing and slight circumduction may be the only abnormalities.[web.archive.org] Abstract Ataxic hemiparesis (AH) is characterized by the simultaneous presence of a pyramidal tract syndrome with homolateral ataxic syndrome.[link.springer.com]
