75 Possible Causes for Dizziness, Gaze-Evoked Nystagmus, Guillain-Barré Syndrome

  • Ophthalmoplegia

    He denies recent trauma, dizziness, weakness, headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and travel.[pedsinreview.aappublications.org] In addition, other findings such as vertical gaze evoked nystagmus (most commonly on supraduction) can be seen.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] Recognition of this rare clinical presentation can help avoid misdiagnosis as Guillain-Barré syndrome or its ocular variant, namely Miller Fisher Syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Common side effects of tramadol include: nausea dizziness constipation sweating dry mouth confusion headache vomiting[hse.ie] Gaze-evoked nystagmus is common. All patients have gait ataxia and the majority have lower limb ataxia.[doi.org] syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    Get up slowly after sitting or lying down, especially if you feel dizzy. Take extra care in the kitchen and shower.[cancer.gov] Gaze-evoked nystagmus is common. All patients have gait ataxia and the majority have lower limb ataxia.[doi.org] Unfortunately, none of these tests can diagnose Guillain-Barré syndrome.[medbroadcast.com]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    Each patient completed a standardised dizziness questionnaire and underwent neurotological evaluations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] as the Guillain-Barré syndrome.[neuropathology-web.org] The proportion of gaze-evoked nystagmus (6/12 [50 %] vs . 2/17 [12 %], p   0.04) and deficient gain of ipsilesional pursuit (10/12 [83 %] vs . 6/17 [35 %], p   0.05) was more[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lateral Medullary Syndrome

    RESULTS: Gait ataxia (88%), vertigo/dizziness (91%), nausea/vomiting (73%), dysphagia (61%), hoarseness (55%), Horner sign (73%), and facial (85%) and hemibody (94%) sensory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On neurological evaluation he had cerebellar type of dysarthria, right sided gaze evoked nystagmus, paralysis of palatal and pharyngeal movement, and absent gag reflex on[pmj.bmj.com] Other inflammatory conditions such as brainstem encephalitis (753), Behcet’s disease (765), cryptococcosis (766), Guillain-Barré syndrome, and rarely systemic lupus erythematosis[web.archive.org]

  • Cerebellopontine Angle Tumor

    After a stellate ganglion block with transient nausea and dizziness, the pain was noticeably relieved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] "gaze-evoked" nystagmus in left gaze.[collections.lib.utah.edu] CPA tumor should be a prime suspicion in patients with acute vertigo and ipsilesional HIN, especially when the vertigo accompanies hearing impairments.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Affected individuals also lose control over bowel movements and there is development of dizziness and /or lightheadedness.[symptoma.com] Early ocular signs are gaze-evoked horizontal nystagmus and defective ocular pursuit movements with the full range of extraocular movements.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Postinfective polyneuritis - eg, Guillain-Barré syndrome. Sarcoidosis.[patient.info]

  • Ocular Palsy

    Gaze-evoked nystagmus (GEN) in all directions indicates a cerebellar dysfunction and can have multiple causes such as drugs, in particular antiepileptics, chronic alcohol[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] VI) Location Pathological Processes Causes Brainstem (nuclei and fascicles) Neoplasm Glioma, metastasis Inflammatory/demyelinating MS, postviral, Miller Fisher variant of Guillain-Barré[neurology.mhmedical.com] This may suggest isolated third nerve palsy (as above), Horner's syndrome (small pupil and ptosis) due to carotid dissection, or inflammatory neuropathy ( Guillain-Barré syndrome[patient.info]

  • Brain Stem Disorder

    The symptoms of vertigo dizziness or imbalance usually occur together; dizziness alone is not a sign of stroke.[strokeassociation.org] In the author's experience, these patients often exhibit rebound nystagmus, which is a variant of gaze-evoked nystagmus .[tchain.com] Associated diseases A large number of patients have associated Guillain-Barré syndrome, suggesting that the two disorders are closely related. [ 8 ] Miller Fisher's syndrome[patient.info]

  • Bickerstaff Brainstem Encephalitis

    Abstract A 39-year-old man acutely developed diplopia, vertigo, unsteady gait, and disturbance of consciousness following an upper respiratory infection.[jstage.jst.go.jp] They showed general weakness, severe ataxia, bilateral dysmetria and bilateral lateral gaze limitation. And gaze-evoked nystagmus was observed in one of them.[e-rvs.org] Patients with overlapping Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), and the Bickerstaff brainstem encephalitis (BBE) have rarely been reported, and the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
