16 Possible Causes for Expressive Aphasia, Limb Joint Contracture

  • Stroke

    aphasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[en.wikipedia.org] She was discharged on Coumadin (warfarin) five days after the onset of stroke, recovered with only mild expressive aphasia, and returned to work within four months, on a course[web.archive.org]

  • Paresis

    Mental status examination Findings Location of lesion Clinical features Broca aphasia ( motor aphasia , expressive aphasia ) Broca area , frontal lobe Telegraphic and grammatically[amboss.com] One particular concern is contracture, the constant contracting of muscles that results in painful joint deformities.[cerebralpalsy.org] Transcortical aphasia Motor Supplementary motor area ( SMA ) in the cortex, with Broca area intact (exception: may occur during recovery phase of Broca aphasia ) Difficulty[amboss.com]

  • Cerebrovascular Disorder

    She was discharged on Coumadin (warfarin) five days after the onset of stroke, recovered with only mild expressive aphasia, and returned to work within four months, on a course[web.archive.org] […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[en.wikipedia.org] Global (mixed) aphasia Manifestation: Combination of both receptive and expressive aphasia.[slideshare.net]

  • Becker Muscular Dystrophy

    While an administration of anti-coagulant, diuretics, and dopamine relieved his respiratory distress and right hemiplegia, severe motor aphasia persisted.[webview.isho.jp] There may be joint contractures, especially of the tendo-Achilles. The facial, ophthalmic and bulbar muscles are not involved.[orpha.net] Cerebral embolism may be a notable complication in patients with BMD presenting with late-life expression of skeletal muscular weakness and antecedent cardiac involvement.[webview.isho.jp]

  • Endocarditis

    (difficulty with verbal expression, auditory comprehension, reading and writing ; Broca's or Wernicke's area typically involved) dysarthria ( motor speech disorder resulting[en.wikipedia.org] […] should be positioned in the lengthened positions to prevent against further contractures, skin breakdown, and disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to[en.wikipedia.org] […] stick out the tongue or move it from side to side) If the cerebral cortex is involved, the CNS pathways can again be affected, but also can produce the following symptoms: aphasia[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Muscular Atrophy

    Expressive aphasia is reflected in odd choices of words, the use of partial phrases, disjointed clauses, and incomplete sentences.[my-ms.org] It is present at birth, and children exhibit severe contractures of the joints, resulting in limb deformity; spinal curvature; deformities of the chest wall; difficulties[healthofchildren.com] Physiotherapy and special seats and wheelchairs can help to minimise joint contractures and scoliosis. Physiotherapy can also allow respiratory exercises.[patient.info]

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    (difficulty with verbal expression, auditory comprehension, reading and writing ; Broca's or Wernicke's area typically involved) dysarthria ( motor speech disorder resulting[en.wikipedia.org] […] should be positioned in the lengthened positions to prevent against further contractures, skin breakdown, and disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to[en.wikipedia.org] […] stick out the tongue or move it from side to side) If the cerebral cortex is involved, the CNS pathways can again be affected, but also can produce the following symptoms: aphasia[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Central Nervous System Disorder

    Comprehension is typically only mildly to moderately impaired in expressive aphasia.[ranker.com] Increase ROM of joints and address contractures and deformity if present. Watch for decubitus ulcers.[quizlet.com] Photo: via Pinterest Expressive aphasia is characterized by the loss of the ability to produce language.[ranker.com]

  • CAMFAK Syndrome

    aphasia Aboulia parietal lobe : Receptive aphasia Hemispatial neglect Gerstmann syndrome Astereognosis occipital lobe : Bálint's syndrome Cortical blindness Pure alexia temporal[en.wikipedia.org] They often have long limbs with joint contractures (inability to relax muscle at a joint), a hunched back ( kyphosis ), and they may be very thin ( cachetic ), due to a loss[ipfs.io] Dysdiadochokinesia Intention tremor ) medial ( Cerebellar ataxia ) Basal ganglia Chorea Dystonia Parkinson's disease Cortex ACA syndrome MCA syndrome PCA syndrome frontal lobe : Expressive[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Idiopathic Childhood-Onset Basal Ganglia Calcification

    At the time of presentation, neurological exam revealed expressive aphasia, stiffness and spasticity of the right upper and lower limbs, and lower limb atrophy.[nature.com] joint contracture Limb contractures 0003121 Microcephaly Abnormally small skull Decreased circumference of cranium Decreased size of skull Reduced head circumference Small[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] The patient had a normal life until age 46, when he developed slowly progressive aphasia and motor syndrome of the right lower and upper limbs.[nature.com]
