262 Possible Causes for Gait Apraxia

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    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] The best predictors of outcome to include aqueductal flow void , thinning of the corpus callosum, effacement of the sulci with absence of cortical atrophy and gait apraxia[docneuro.com]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    The severity of the core clinical picture with predominant sensory ataxia, gait apraxia, lower limb spasticity, cognitive impairment and bladder dysfunction correlated with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The aberrant pattern of ambulation often is composed of a slow gait; short, shuffling steps; and a wide-based stance. 4 , 15 , 21 The term “gait apraxia” is sometimes used[aafp.org]

  • Ataxia

    Damage to the frontal lobes, often produces a curious kind of gait disturbance called “apraxia” of gait.[dartmouth.edu] Questions Define the following terms: Ataxia, dysequilibrium, sensory ataxia, astasia-abasia, gait apraxia.[dartmouth.edu] The classic gait of frontal lobe disease is “apraxia.” This consists of a gait in which the person slides their feet along the floor (“magnetic” or “glue-footed”).[dartmouth.edu]

  • Secondary Parkinsonism

    Additionally gait disturbance, urinary incontinence, and dementia or cognitive decline.[explainmedicine.com] apraxia, urinary incontinence, memory impairment [10] [11] These are features of Normal pressure hydrocephalus which can cause secondary parkinsonism.[explainmedicine.com] […] extrapyramidal side effects such as parkinsonian features and these patients give a history of diseases such as schizophrenia with hallucinations, delusions, or negative symptoms [1] Gait[explainmedicine.com]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    A 78-year-old Japanese man presented with rapidly progressive dementia and gait disturbances. Eight months before the onset of clinical symptoms, diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) demonstrated hyperintensities in the right temporal, right parietal and left medial occipital cortices. Two weeks after[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mild Cognitive Impairment

    In the following years, the patient also developed behavioral disturbances, gait apraxia and parkinsonian symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cognitive Impairment with or without Cerebellar Ataxia

    Damage to the frontal lobes, often produces a curious kind of gait disturbance called “apraxia” of gait.[dartmouth.edu] Questions Define the following terms: Ataxia, dysequilibrium, sensory ataxia, astasia-abasia, gait apraxia.[dartmouth.edu] The classic gait of frontal lobe disease is “apraxia.” This consists of a gait in which the person slides their feet along the floor (“magnetic” or “glue-footed”).[dartmouth.edu]

  • Infantile Symmetrical Thalamic Degeneration

    The most frequent neurologic symptoms are dementia, seizures, impaired balance, retropulsion, gait apraxia, spasticity, ataxia, and urinary incontinence.[ulf.org]

  • 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]
