330 Possible Causes for Extremity Ataxia, Progressive Polyneuropathy, Weight Loss

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    peripheral neuropathy, and spinal degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In later stages, spasticity, extensor plantar responses, greater loss of position and vibratory sensation in the lower extremities, and ataxia emerge.[merckmanuals.com] We present a 73-year-old individual with weight loss and anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (ataxia, confusion, ophthalmoplegia), amnesic problems, peripheral neuropathy and dementia.[patient.info] The first had been admitted with confusion and weight loss, the second with hypotension and sepsis, and the third with confusion and hypoglycaemia-induced seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVE: Diarrhea, weight loss and osteoporosis are prominent symptoms and clinical signs of alcoholism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    We describe a case of a young black woman with gradually progressive lower extremity paresthesias, weakness, and ataxia as the primary presenting symptoms of pernicious anemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An elderly black man was admitted to our institution with macrocytic anemia, dysphagia, and significant weight loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ), ataxia and positive Babinski reflexes.[doi.org]

  • Vasculitis

    Neuropathy Sensory or Sensory-Motor General patterns Mononeuritis multiplex (13%) Asymmetric polyneuropathy (85%) Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (2%) More slowly progressive[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] weight loss over 2 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms may be accompanied by vision disorder, subfebrile temperature, fatigue, lack of appetite, weight loss, sweating, and joint pains.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    Ms Q is a 52-year-old woman who has had progressive polyneuropathy in the setting of diabetes for the past 8 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Deep tendon reflexes were symmetric and graded 2 in all extremities.[openaccessjournals.com] : Distal; Symmetric Tendon reflexes: Normal or Reduced Associations Poorly controlled diabetes Recent onset of insulin therapy Rapid weight loss Improvement: After control[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Thiamine Deficiency

    Nerve conduction studies were consistent with axonal, length-dependent polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 2 to 3 months apathy and weakness become extreme, calf muscle tenderness develops with loss of recent memory, confusion, ataxia, and sometimes persistent vomiting ([wardelab.com] loss.[dx.doi.org]

  • Familial Progressive Polyneuropathy

    Abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and pathological features in patients with progressive-type familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) using[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] with marked disturbances of sensation and ataxia of movement and caused by an interstitial hypertrophic neuritis that ascends with consecutive medullary [cord] lesions.[karger.com] Excessive weight loss resulted in cachexia and BMI of 17,5. His family history was negative.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    We report a fatal case of severe chronic progressive axonal polyradiculoneuropathy in association with this antibody.[doi.org] Cerebellar symptoms : ataxia, unsteady gait, dysdiadochokinesia, intention tremor Note that symptoms often emerge months before the discovery of a primary tumor ![amboss.com] History and review of symptoms were negative including symptoms most-commonly associated with malignancy such as fevers and weight loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    Shortly after HSCT the patient developed progressive polyneuropathy of the lower legs and hypoesthesia. Five months later a severe dementia followed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission, the patient exhibited bifacial, extremity weakness, ataxia, impaired sensation, and areflexia. Electrophysiology and nerve biopsy suggested demyelination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of CIDP associated with ileocecal tuberculosis (TB), presenting with progressive motor weakness and significant weight loss.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Convert to ICD-10-CM : 356.4 converts directly to: 2015/16 ICD-10-CM G60.3 Idiopathic progressive neuropathy Approximate Synonyms Idiopathic progressive neuropathy Polyneuropathy[icd9data.com] There are only sensory symptoms, e.g. sensory ataxia, numbness and pain.[nnjournal.net] However, peroneal palsy has also been reported after weight loss 14.[scielo.br]
