152 Possible Causes for Dementia, Loss of Motor Skills, Rhabdomyolysis

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    skills, or slurred speech.[cdc.gov] Of five chronic alcoholics with acute skeletal muscle necrosis (rhabdomyolysis) three developed acute heart failure with disturbances of rhythm and conduction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    There may be a dramatic loss of motor skills and coordination. Vision may be significantly blurred.[americanaddictioncenters.org] Rhabdomyolysis is a severe and life-threatening condition in which skeletal muscle is damaged.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This brain injury is associated with characteristic cognitive deficits, and, in extreme cases, with dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • MELAS Syndrome

    Altered consciousness Motor skills loss Intellectual disability Causes MELAS syndrome is triggered by transmutations in the gene material – DNA – in the mitochondria.[syndrome.org] Furthermore, this mutation was associated with exercise-induced rhabdomyolysis, hearing loss, seizures, cardiomyopathy, and autism in the large kindred.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke like episodes) is a multisystem disorder characterized by short stature, vomiting, headache, cortical blindness, deafness and dementia[e-arm.org]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    Vertigo Dizziness Sleep disturbances Loss of fine motor skills Loss of memory Trouble in eating and swallowing food Cognitive impairment Weakness Cutaneous itching Diagnosis[symptoma.com] Rhabdomyolysis by S-1 was initially suspected, so the chemotherapy was changed to CBDCA and nanoparticle-albumin-bound-paclitaxel (nab-PTX).[ci.nii.ac.jp] […] may include difficulty in walking or swallowing, loss of muscle tone, loss of fine motor coordination, slurred speech, memory loss, vision problems, sleep disturbances, dementia[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    However, as MCI progresses to Alzheimer disease, memory loss becomes more severe, and language, perceptual, and motor skills deteriorate.[britannica.com] Rhabdomyolysis associated with hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase inhibitors. Am Heart J 2004 Jun; 147(6): 956–65 PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 108.[oadoi.org] […] to developing dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Kohlschütter-Tönz Syndrome

    The infant's symptoms included loss of motor skills, mental disability, epilepsy, and missing enamel.[en.wikipedia.org] […] causes Miscellaneous Amyloidosis - Renal, burns, dehydration, fasting, hypothermia, internal bleeding, intravenous infusion, malignant hyperpyrexia, phlebotomy complication, rhabdomyolysis[wikidoc.org] TY - JOUR T1 - Kohlschütter-Tönz syndrome: epilepsy, dementia, and amelogenesis imperfecta.[wwww.unboundmedicine.com]

  • Proximal Myopathy with Extrapyramidal Signs

    This new rare disorder is characterized by normal early development followed by a progressive loss of mental and motor skills.[pliem.co.za] For example, rhabdomyolysis (acute muscle breakdown) can lead to kidney problems by causing a protein called myoglobin to leak from ruptured muscle cells into the urine.[mda.org] These include criteria for the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, dementia of Lewy-body type, frontal lobe dementias, chronic fatigue syndrome, and inflammatory neuropathies[books.google.com]

  • Combined Oxidative Phosphorylation Defect Type 14

    The gradual cumulative effects of these episodes often result in variable combinations of loss of motor skills (speech, movement, and eating), impaired sensation (vision loss[umdf.org] It shares many features of MCADD, but patients may also have cardiomyopathy; rhabdomyolysis, massive creatine kinase elevations, and myoglobinuria with muscle exertion; peripheral[merckmanuals.com] MRPL44 Copper deficiency Deafness Hyperhomocysteinemia Leber's Leigh's Leukoencephalopathy with ovarian failure : AARS2 Myopathy Infantile-onset Fatal Benign Adult-onset Rhabdomyolysis[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Delirium

    Concurrently there tends to be progressive loss of motor control and of skills, with increasing difficulty in feeding, grooming, writing, etc.[doi.org] Severe metabolic derangements, including lactic acidosis, rhabdomyolysis, and hyperthermia, occur.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Delirium and dementia Delirium is a treatable condition and may co-exist with dementia.[dementiauk.org]
