13 Possible Causes for Cogwheel Rigidity, Motor Symptoms, Poor Spontaneous Movements

  • 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's Disease Type 3

    The Parkinson’s community acknowledges that there are many important non-motor symptoms as well as motor symptoms.[] Most scales are based on motor symptoms, but other scales focus on non-motor symptoms.[] People may experience non-motor symptoms from loss of other neurotransmitters up to ten years before motor symptoms are noticed.[]

  • Juvenile Paralysis Agitans of Hunt

    […] or loss of spontaneous movement (bradykinesia) Lack of balance Poor coordination Tires easily Handwriting becomes difficult due to shaking hands or weakened, nonresponsive[] The rigidity has a rhythmic quality referred to as cogwheel rigidity (Negro’s sign), presumably due to the superimposition of the tremor.[] Several therapies are available to delay the onset of motor symptoms and to ameliorate motor symptoms.[]

  • 6-Pyruvoyl-Tetrahydropterin Synthase Deficiency

    Symptoms often include poor sucking, decreased spontaneous movements, floppiness, microcephaly, low birth weight, and early appearance of neurologic signs in the neonatal[] Commonly reported symptoms are initial truncal hypotonia, subsequent appendicular hypertonia, bradykinesia, cogwheel rigidity, generalized dystonia, and marked diurnal fluctuation[] Frequent symptoms of PTS deficiency resembled those of Parkinson disease, indicating a lack of dopamine in the basal ganglia.[]

  • Pyramidal Tract Disorder

    FUNCTIONAL GAIT DISORDER Sometimes patients say they have factitious disorder poor balance, yet spontaneously perform highly destabilizing swaying movements while walking,[] She presented cogwheel rigidity of her right arm and both legs, particularly the right leg. She also showed markedly slow movements, including finger and feet tapping.[] These symptoms include: Akathisia. Akathisia is a condition of motor restlessness.[]

  • Brain Stem Disorder

    Some antigravity movements were present in both arms and legs but the pattern of spontaneous movements was very poor.[] In some patients, this rigidity is coupled with tremors and is called cogwheel rigidity, as moving the limb feels to the clinician like the catching and release of gears.[] Many of the sensory and motor symptoms of MS brainstem lesions are similar to symptoms of lesions of the spine and other parts of the brain because those in the brainstem[]

  • Occipital Lobe Tumor

    […] word list generation Poor abstraction and categorization Segmented approach to visuospatial analysis Medial frontal syndrome (akinetic) Paucity of spontaneous movement and[] […] ratchety movement due to superimposition of tremor on rigidity coital headache indomethacin-responsive headache disorder characterized by sudden, severe, throbbing, occipital[] Motor problems – When tumors affect brain areas responsible for command of body movement, they can cause motor symptoms, including weakness or paralysis, lack of coordination[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia Type 6

    After birth, infants present in the first week of life with poor feeding and neurologic impairment, including hypotonia, little spontaneous movement, no tendon reflexes, no[] 30% cases Nystagmus Unsteady gait Pectus carinatum Distal amyotrophy Peripheral axonal neuropathy Hyporeflexia Hypometric saccades Limb ataxia Cerebellar vermis atrophy Cogwheel[] symptoms in the absence of any sensory involvement.[]

  • Spastic Ataxia with Congenital Miosis

    Affected infants typically appear "floppy" with low muscle tone and poor spontaneous movements.[] S/S of Parkinson’s disease* Definition Classic presentation: tremor, "cogwheel" rigidity, bradykinesia, postural instability 2ndary features: micorgraphia, masked facies,[] […] processes and the biology of mental processes, behavioral symptoms and emotion.[]

  • Wilson Disease

    Patients may look like older sufferers of Parkinson's disease with rather fixed and rigid postures and little spontaneous movement.[] 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[]
