13 Possible Causes for Disturbance of Coordination, Dysmetria, Interictal Downbeat Nystagmus

  • Autosomal Recessive Spinocerebellar Ataxia 8

    According to Baloh and others (1997), EA2 is characterized by a progressive ataxia with interictal rebound nystagmus evoked by gaze, as well as downbeating nystagmus.[tchain.com] They may also have difficulty with movements that involve judging distance or scale (dysmetria).[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Adult-Onset Autosomal Recessive Cerebellar Ataxia

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] They may also have difficulty with movements that involve judging distance or scale ( dysmetria ).[en.wikipedia.org] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Acute Cerebellar Ataxia

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] Abstract Acute Cerebellar Ataxia (ACA) is not infrequent disorder in childhood characterized by sudden onset of such cerebellar signs as truncal ataxia, dysmetria, tremors[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is the sudden onset of a disturbance in coordination. The cerebellum is the part of the brain that plays an important role in balance and coordination.[cookchildrens.org]

  • Episodic Ataxia

    According to Baloh and others (1997), EA2 is characterized by a progressive ataxia with interictal rebound nystagmus evoked by gaze, as well as downbeating nystagmus.[dizziness-and-balance.com] On examination, patient has mild truncal ataxia, scanning speech, bilateral dysmetria and falling tendency to either side on tandem gait.[japi.org] Ataxia is characterized by disturbances in the voluntary coordination of posture and movement.[healio.com]

  • Cerebellar Ataxia with Peripheral Neuropathy Type 2

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] Cerebellar exam findings, such as ataxia, vertigo, and dysmetria, are associated with other forms of cerebellar insult besides inherited disorders.[clinicaladvisor.com] Cortical Ataxias  FRONTAL LOBE ATAXIA refers to disturbed coordination due to dysfunction of the contralateral frontal lobe; -Results from disease involving the frontopontocerebellar[slideshare.net]

  • Alcoholic Cerebellar Degeneration

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] A full neurologic exam reveals a wide-based gait, impaired heel-shin test, and dysmetria on finger-nose-finger test. Mr.[mdedge.com] […] ataxia of gait, and truncal instability, with generally preserved coordination of the upper extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Early-Onset Cerebellar Ataxia

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] This is caused by inability to control the distance and scale of the movement (dysmetria), which leads to too short or too long steps.[commons.wikimedia.org] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 4

    Initial examination disclosed a central type of positional nystagmus (conjugate downbeat nystagmus that did not fatigue with repeated positioning).[jnnp.bmj.com] […] sensory impairment Decreased sensation in extremities 0002936 Hyporeflexia Decreased reflex response Decreased reflexes [ more ] 0001265 Impaired smooth pursuit 0007772 Limb dysmetria[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6

    Initial examination disclosed a central type of positional nystagmus (conjugate downbeat nystagmus that did not fatigue with repeated positioning).[jnnp.bmj.com] This is a new provocative test to enhance distal dysmetria in SCA-6. The present results strengthen the hypothesis of Walker and Zee.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]

  • Early-Onset Spastic Ataxia - Neuropathy Syndrome

    . ; EA2 with interictal nystagmus , is long-lasting (hours) associated with attacks of vertigo, diffuse weakness, slurred speech, dystonia, seizures, truncal and limb ataxia[neuroweb.us] Tremor, dysmetria, and poor coordination of fine movements are often present. A sensorineural hearing loss has been found in several individuals.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Cardinal features - Cerebellar pathology – Stance and gait – Poor regulation and coordination of skilled movements (Dysmetria and dysdiadokinesia) – Eye movement disturbances[slideshare.net]
