214 Possible Causes for Cogwheel Rigidity, Stroke

  • Basal Ganglia Lesion

    - cogwheel rigidity Bradykinesia - freezing Hypokinesia/akinesia - reduced frequency of swallow Hypokinetic Dysarthria: Other Neuromuscular Deficits Resting tremors of head[] Prognosis of Basal Ganglia Stroke Approximately 33% of all stroke cases are deadly.[] The rigidity has a superimposed cogwheel halting character if tremor is part of the syndrome.[]

  • Hemiplegic Migraine

    A neurological examination revealed hypomimia, bilateral gaze-evoked horizontal nystagmus, normal saccades, right-sided, slight ‘cogwheel' rigidity, bradykinesia and resting[] In our acute stroke unit admitting over three hundred suspected acute stroke cases over a period of one year (January - December 2004), there were two cases of hemiplegic[] I could have kissed the consultant when he told me I had not had a stroke, but instead suffered something called a hemiplegic migraine.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    This stops the blood clogging small blood vessels, which can cause confusion, dizziness and stroke-like symptoms.[] Microbleeds may be associated with hemorrhagic transformation of ischemic stroke.[] ., headache, blurred vision, tinnitus, delirium, stroke], respiratory compromise) Not recognizing very early signs of infection (tachycardia, delirium).[]

  • Japanese Encephalitis

    Examination during acute illness revealed restricted eye movements, opsoclonus, upbeating nystagmus, and cogwheel rigidity.[] Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a relatively rare cerebrovascular condition which accounts for 0.5% of all strokes.[] The third stage includes flaccid paralysis, features of Parkinson’s such as masked face, tremors, hypertonia, cogwheel rigidity.[]

  • Ethylene Glycol

    Treatment with carbidopa/levodopa improved cogwheel rigidity and bradykinesia in both patients.[] Ethylene glycol toxicity can rarely present with stroke which can be life-threatening when not diagnosed and managed in a timely fashion.[] Arteriovenous Malformation Coma/Level of Consciousness Demyelinating Disease Dermatome Map Functional Outcome Head & Neck Trauma Headache Intracerebral Hemorrhage Ischemic Stroke[]

  • Hemiballismus

    Motor examination showed increased tone in right upper and lower limb with demonstrable cogwheel rigidity in right wrist. No sensory deficits were noted.[] Stroke-induced hemiballismus (HB) has been reported to improve motor function in people with Parkinson's disease (PD).[] Hemiballismus as a result of stroke occurs in only about 0.45 cases per hundred thousand stroke victims.[]

  • Lithium

    , clonic movements of whole limbs), hypertonicity, ataxia, choreo-athetotic movements, hyperactive deep tendon reflex, extrapyramidal symptoms including acute dystonia , cogwheel[] We present a case of dose-dependent changes in the quality and intensity of a stroke-related, chronic cerebellar tremor with lithium treatment at serum levels within the therapeutic[] Unlike previously reported cases of acute cerebellar atrophy after heat stroke, neuroleptic syndrome or lithium toxicity, this case was characterized by a chronic cerebellar[]

  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    In acute poisoning, common abnormalities of posture and tone are cogwheel rigidity, opisthotonus and flaccidity or spasticity.[] This study evaluated the risk of ischemic stroke using population-based data.[] On the other hand CO seems to play a fundamental role as a possible neuro-protective agent in ischaemic stroke.[]

  • Organophosphate Poisoning

    Extrapyramidal symptoms occurred between 5 and 15 d and were characterized by dystonia of arms and legs, resting tremor, cogwheel rigidity, and hypereflexia.[] Sometimes the diagnosis may be difficult, as in case 1, identified initially as brainstem stroke.[] rigidity, and parkinsonian features (basal ganglia impairment after recovery from acute toxicity).[]

  • Sulfhemoglobinemia

    rigidity, convulsive seizures, extrapyramidal symptoms, facial grimacing, facial muscle spasm, fatal dystonic reaction, foot tapping, inability to sit still, involuntary[] […] coverage of: the chemical basis for analyte assays and common interferences; lipids and dyslipoproteinemia; markers in the blood for cardiac injury evaluation and related stroke[] […] not reported : Acute dyskinesia, acute dystonia/acute dystonic reaction, altered consciousness, autonomic instability, bulbar type of speech, choreoathetotic movements, cogwheel[]
