1,367 Possible Causes for Dysarthria, Dystonia

  • Parkinson's Disease

    SUBJECTS/PATIENTS: Six patients with Parkinson's disease with deep brain stimulation experiencing disabling foot dystonia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other clinical features include secondary motor symptoms (eg, hypomimia, dysarthria, dysphagia, sialorrhoea, micrographia, shuffling gait, festination, freezing, dystonia,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Muller J, Wenning GK, Verny M, McKee A, Chaudhuri KR, Jellinger K, Poewe W, Litvan I (2001) Progression of dysarthria and dysphagia in postmortem-confirmed parkinsonian disorders[oadoi.org]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    […] hypertonia), awkward body movements (ataxia) often involving a slow, staggering, lurching gait (athetosis) that may be mistaken for drunkenness, slurred speech and swallowing (dysarthria[rarediseases.org] Some with type 3 disease showed a never-before-reported phenomenon of rapid and repetitive dystonia-like hyperkinetic movement disorder.[gaucherdiseasenews.com] (This is known medically as “dysarthria.”) This can make it more difficult for doctors to treat patients, or for caregivers to understand a patient’s needs.[aging.com]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    KEYWORDS: Acoustic analysis; Atypical Parkinsonian syndromes; Dysarthria; Parkinson’s disease; Perceptual assessment; Speech disorders; Voice onset time[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lidocaine should be considered in pain relief of dystonia to improve quality of life.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (xv) Extra axial-dystonia: the presence of dystonia in any body part apart from trunk and neck.[doi.org]

  • Niemann-Pick Disease Type C

    With the exception of developmental delay/cognitive impairment, these results persisted after 48-96 months in 41 - 55% of the patients (dystonia: 55%, dysarthria: 50%, gait[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When a young patient with ataxia or dystonia shows VSGP, NP-C should be considered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Major clinical features included cerebellar ataxia (76%), vertical supranuclear ophthalmoplegia (VSO, 75%), dysarthria, (63%), cognitive troubles (61%), movement disorders[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    This study describes the use of a neuroplasticity-principled speech treatment approach (LSVT( )LOUD) with children who have dysarthria secondary to cerebral palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary outcomes were change in dystonia and adverse effects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Children affected with athetoid cerebral palsy may be perceptive and intelligent; however, because of the involuntary movements and dysarthria, they are often unable to communicate[britannica.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Articulation abilities were evaluated using the articulation subtest from the Fussi assessment (dysarthria scores).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is part of the upper motor neurone syndrome manifesting as increased tone, clonus, spasms, spastic dystonia and co-contractions.[dx.doi.org] An 80-year-old man developed dysarthria, quadriplegia, sensory disturbance and ataxia in all limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Huntington's Disease

    We report the case of a 42-year-old man with a 5-year history of gait disturbance, dysarthria and cognitive impairment and familial antecedents of dementia and movement disorders[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chorea and dystonia are features that may be troublesome to some patients and may potentially prove unresponsive to pharmacological treatments.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fifteen years later he manifested with dysarthria, difficulties with swallowing and involuntary movement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Wilson Disease

    Wilson disease (WD) is a neurodegenerative disorder, which presents as a spectrum of neurologic manifestations that includes tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity, dystonia, chorea, dysarthria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The authors diagnosed acute focal dystonia induced by clomipramine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical manifestations of neurologic Wilson's disease include variable combinations of dysarthria, dystonia, tremor, and choreoathetosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    He developed dysarthria, difficulty with his gait and dystonia in his arms at the age of 28 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Generalized dystonia is one of the most disabling movement disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The case of an 11-year-old female with the clinical findings of Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome, including progressive dystonia, dysarthria, disturbances of gait, and retinal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Athetoid Cerebral Palsy

    […] foot, known as focal dystonia.[birthinjuryguide.org] […] coordinated movements and may result in involuntary grimacing and tongue thrusting which may lead to swallowing problems, drooling and slurred speech, a condition known as dysarthria[jmw.co.uk] Sometimes the face muscles, tongue, and throat are affected, causing drooling, grimacing, and difficulty speaking or dysarthria.[beasleyfirm.com]
