16 Possible Causes for Extremity Ataxia, Non Specific ST-T Changes

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (ataxia, confusion, ophthalmoplegia), amnesic problems, peripheral neuropathy and dementia.[patient.info] Investigations Alcohol level is useful in acute comatose state: Alcohol level 300 mg/100 ml extreme intoxication (drowsiness and then coma).[patient.info]

  • Hyperkalemia

    Neurological symptoms of hypermagnesemia include muscular weakness, paralysis, ataxia, drowsiness, and confusion.[doi.org] Hypermagnesemia can produce vasodilation and hypotension. 217 Extremely high serum magnesium levels may produce a depressed level of consciousness, bradycardia, cardiac arrhythmias[doi.org]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    A patient with a past medical history of panic attacks and anxiety is brought into the ED by her husband as she has been stuporous and has been minimally responsive and extremely[medbullets.com] Benzodiazepines Mechanism GABAa channel - increased frequency of opening Intoxication presentation amnesia, ataxia, stupor/somnolence, minor respiratory depression has a depression[medbullets.com]

  • Stroke

    Ataxia, imbalance, unsteadiness, or disequilibrium. Vertigo, with or without nausea and vomiting. Diplopia (ophthalmoplegia). Dysphagia or dysarthria.[patient.info] Sensory deficits: numbness, including loss of sensation or paraesthesia in any combination of extremities, sometimes including all four limbs or both sides of the face or[patient.info]

  • Hypoxia

    Altered motor function The Purkinje cells of the cerebellum are large cells extremely sensitive to the effects of hypoxia.[anesthesiaweb.org] Malfunction of these and other parts of the cerebellum result in cerebellar ataxia manifesting during moderate hypoxia ( Peacock 1998, Johnson-2005 ).[anesthesiaweb.org]

  • Hypocalcemia

    At presentation, he had ataxia, paresthesia in the hands and feet, and abdominal cramping. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain was unremarkable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] year-old man with metastatic melanoma presented to the Emergency Department for the chief complaints of imbalance, general muscle weakness, abdominal pain and tingling in extremities[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Phencyclidine Intoxication

    A patient with a past medical history of panic attacks and anxiety is brought into the ED by her husband as she has been stuporous and has been minimally responsive and extremely[medbullets.com] Benzodiazepines Mechanism GABAa channel - increased frequency of opening Intoxication presentation amnesia, ataxia, stupor/somnolence, minor respiratory depression has a depression[medbullets.com]

  • Hypermagnesemia

    Neurologic symptoms of hypermagnesemia are muscular weakness, paralysis, ataxia, drowsiness, and confusion.[circ.ahajournals.org] Extremely high serum magnesium levels may produce a depressed level of consciousness, bradycardia, cardiac arrhythmias, hypoventilation, and cardiorespiratory arrest. 15 Treatment[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Hemochromatosis-related Cardiomyopathy

    Absence of extrapyramidal signs, cerebellar ataxia and dementia ruled out aceruloplasminemia.[karger.com] Sinus tachycardia is frequently present, and non-specific ST-segment or T-wave changes as well as changes in P-wave morphology may well be present.[textbookofcardiology.org] A(hypo)transferrinemia is an extremely rare autosomal recessive disorder of iron overload characterized by severe microcytic anemia [ 9 ], which was not present in this patient[karger.com]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    Her examination was significant for lethargy, dysarthria, bilateral upper extremity ataxia, and bilateral inferomedial gaze deviation.[stroke.ahajournals.org] Cardiac manifestations include chest pain, mill-wheel murmur and ECG evidence of non specific ST-T wave changes with evidence of right ventricular strain and/or tachy/bradyarrythmia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On neurological examination he had right cerebellar ataxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
