  • Friedreich Ataxia

    In contrast, cardiomyopathy and glucose intolerance are much less frequent, and head titubation and dystonia are observed in some patients only.[dx.doi.org] […] and Neck Nystagmus Head titubation Dysarthria Blindness (rare) Diminished speech perception Vestibular dysfunction Heart Cardiomyopathy – usually hypertropic but can be dilated[pediatriceducation.org] Ataxic head movements (titubation) can occur in advanced disease.[flipper.diff.org]

  • Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease

    We here present a Korean boy with spastic quadriplegia, horizontal nystagmus, saccadic gaze, intentional tremor, head titubation, ataxia, and developmental delay.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and neck tremors (titubation), involuntary tensing of the muscles (dystonia), and jerking (choreiform) movements.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Titubation is described: this may mean either a staggering gait, tremor or shaking of the head, of cerebellar origin, but in this context it is more likely to be the latter[patient.info]

Tendon reflexes are dramatically reduced and extensor plantar reflexes are frequent.[orpha.net] […] records of 43 patients with documented mutation in the alpha-TTP gene revealed differences from Friedreich ataxia: cardiomyopathy was found in only 19% of cases, whereas head[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hoyeraal-Hreidarsson Syndrome

    A 3-month-old boy was referred for head titubation and tremulous movements of the trunk. Multiple petechiae also developed on his face and trunk at the age of 5 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: A 3-month-old boy was referred for head titubation and tremulous movements of the trunk.[uniprot.org]

  • Joubert Syndrome Type 15

    Interpretation: Head titubation is a benign, early presentation of Joubert syndrome.[utexas.influuent.utsystem.edu] Head titubation in hypotonic infants should prompt a careful search for Joubert syndrome.[utexas.influuent.utsystem.edu]
