285 Possible Causes for Gait Apraxia

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    INTRODUCTION: Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), described by Hakim and Adams in 1965, is characterized by gait apraxia, urinary incontinence, and dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is characterized by gait apraxia, urinary incontinence, and dementia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are three main symptoms of NPH: Changes in the way a person walks: difficulty when beginning to walk (gait apraxia), feel as if they are stuck to the ground (magnetic[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion

  • Dialysis Dementia

    Neurofibrillary material was found in cortical neurons in two patients who died with dialysis encephalopathy. The cytoplasm of these neurons contained large amounts of aluminum and whole-brain and blood aluminum levels were high. These findings suggest that in dialysis encephalopathy aluminum has a specific effect on[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    We report a 56-year-old right-handed man with rapidly progressive gait ataxia and involuntary elevation of the left upper limb.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During the next few weeks, the patient developed cognitive impairment, apraxia, visual hallucinations, and myoclonus. He met diagnostic criteria for CJD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Microangiopathy

    Furthermore, gait apraxia appeared predominantly in those with frontal lobe or basal ganglia lesions.[journals.plos.org] Basal ganglia WMLs/lacunar infarcts related to more complaints of gait apraxia, vertigo and incontinence.[journals.plos.org] Basal ganglia WMLs/lacunar infarcts were seen in patients with more complaints of gait apraxia, vertigo and incontinence.[journals.plos.org]

  • Classic Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Syndrome

    Coupled with the inability to look downward, this gait apraxia commonly leads to falls in PSP patients ( 5 ).[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] However, muscle atrophy, weakness, evidence of denervation on electromyography, vertical gaze palsy, parkinsonism, gait freezing, aphasia, speech apraxia, or dementia was[okayama.pure.elsevier.com] Pure akinesia with gait freezing is now referred to as PSP with progressive gait freezing (PSP-PGF): it initially presents with an isolated gait disorder years before developing[patient.info]
