18 Possible Causes for Cogwheel Rigidity, Motor Symptoms, Physiologic Coordination

  • Parkinson's Disease

    Resting tremor of extremity Bradykinesia Cogwheel rigidity of limbs Masked facies (lack of expression or facial animation) Postural instability Micrographia Short stepped[] Olfactory deficit is considered the most common NMS in PD preceding the motor symptoms for years.[] In parkinsonism the rigidity can be uniform ("lead-pipe rigidity") or ratchety ("cogwheel rigidity").[]

  • Parkinson-Dementia Syndrome

    Turning on the subthalamic nucleus electrodes improved motor symptoms but left cognitive performance almost unchanged.[] RESULTS: Turning on the subthalamic nucleus electrodes improved motor symptoms but left cognitive performance almost unchanged.[] Typical motor symptoms experienced in Stage One include tremors and shaking limbs.[]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    Motor abnormalities: Patients may have generalized, severe muscle rigidity (sometimes with simultaneous tremor, leading to cogwheel rigidity), or, less often, dystonias, chorea[] Clinically, catatonia and NMS show more or less similar motor symptoms i.e. akinesia.[] We present video evidence of the effectiveness of dantrolene in reducing muscular rigidity, tremor and cogwheel phenomena in a patient with NMS.[]

  • Parkinsonian Disorder

    (cogwheel and lead-pipe rigidity), festinant gait, stooped posture, mask-like facies and eventual progressive dementia par·kin·son·ism ( pahr'kin-sŏn-izm ) Neurologic syndrome[] Pathology in brainstem laterodorsal/pedunculopontine What percentage of patients experience non-motor symptoms?[] The rigidity has a superimposed cogwheel halting character if tremor is part of the syndrome.[]

  • Methylphenyltetrahydropyridine

    rigidity of the upper extremities.[] motor involvement resting pill-rolling tremor bradykinesia muscle rigidity cogwheel rigidity postural instability shuffling gait mask-like facies depression dementia usually[] SEVERE TOXICITY: Higher doses and longer-term administration have been associated with central nervous system excitatory effects such as agitation, tremors, myoclonus, motor[]

  • Wilson Disease

    Specific neurological symptoms usually then follow, often in the form of parkinsonism (cogwheel rigidity, bradykinesia or slowed movements and a lack of balance are the most[] In about 40% of patients, particularly young adults, the first symptoms reflect Motor deficits are common, including any combination of tremors, dystonia, dysarthria, dysphagia[] Bradykinesia, imbalance, and cogwheel rigidity are the most common parkinsonian features. An isolated unilateral rest tremor is atypical in Wilson’s disease.[]

  • Cardiogenic Syncope

    […] than tremor, yet the rigidity lacks the typical “cogwheel” or “lead pipe” rigidity seen in Parkinson’s disease. 24,25 Patients with parkinsonian-type MSA frequently display[] These symptoms not only are bothersome, but can lead to life-threatening injuries.[] , coordinated tissue growth, and angiogenesis in the heart ( 4 ).[]

  • Hypotension

    rigidity, festinating gait, lack of truncal rotation while turning, masked facies Parkinson disease — Confusion, dry mucous membranes, dry tongue, longitudinal tongue furrows[] It's also a non-motor symptom of Parkinson's disease.[] Studies of physiological end points (disease-oriented evidence [DOEs]) were used to address questions where POEMs were not available.[]

  • Movement Disorder

    Rigidity Increased muscle tone may make it difficult for the physician to maneuver the limbs. Cogwheel rigidity is seen in patients with Parkinson’s disease.[] That's why, in addition to treating motor symptoms, our center focuses on the cognitive, behavioral and emotional aspects of movement disorders that can significantly affect[] […] of bimanual coordination.[]

  • Primary Orthostatic Tremor

    Parkinson’s disease characteristic cogwheel rigidity may be the result of tremor and increased muscle tone (rigor).[] Motor symptoms are fairly characteristics but the real impact on the patient’s every day life and quality of life is under-estimated.[] Physical therapy is also recommended to decrease tremor incidence, and enhance muscle control and movement coordination.[]
