153 Possible Causes for Hemiparesis, Postural Defect

  • Homocystinuria

    A previously healthy girl, age 3 years 9 months, presented with right-sided hemiparesis and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cockayne Syndrome

    He developed nephrotic syndrome at the age of 4.7 years and a hypertensive crisis with hemiparesis at 5.4 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It consists of: Treatment of specific signs and symptoms: Physiotherapy to loosen joints, correct posture defects, and keep muscles supple Medication to relax spastic muscles[news-medical.net]

  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy

    Hemiparesis (hemi half) indicates that only one side of the body is weakened. Quadriplegia (quad four) means all four limbs are paralyzed.[cpfamilynetwork.org] The postural defects and resulting joint instability may lead to increased wear and tear of the weight bearing joints in the body.[medhelp.org] Hemiplegia/Hemiparesis indicates that the arm and leg on one side of the body is affected.[cerebralpalsy.org]

  • Carotid Artery Dissection

    Upon treatment with anticoagulants, the patient showed significant improvement of the left-sided hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After carotid stenting, left relative afferent pupillary defect disappeared and TMB was not provoked anymore by upright posture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Trauma staff noted she had a new left hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Trochanteric Bursitis

    The remaining patient had TB associated with left hemiparesis. All patients had limitation of lumbosacral motion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Posture and gait defects should also be addressed, as they contribute to the pathogenesis of greater trochanteric pain syndrome.[symptoma.com]

  • Bradykinesia

    A 70 year old man recovered from a left putamenal haemorrhage in 1984 with a residual mild right hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical features Parkinsonism is characterized by varying degrees of: (1) rigidity, (2) bradykinesia, (3) tremor, and (4) postural defects.[dartmouth.edu] In the absence of tremor, the presentation of parkinsonism may be erroneously diagnosed as hemiparesis.[dartmouth.edu]

  • Parkinsonian Disorder

    In the absence of tremor, the presentation of parkinsonism may be erroneously diagnosed as hemiparesis.[dartmouth.edu] It involves defects in posture maintenance as well as in the control of coordination, and may manifest as lurching or staggering movements.[news-medical.net] Clinical features Parkinsonism is characterized by varying degrees of: (1) rigidity, (2) bradykinesia, (3) tremor, and (4) postural defects.[dartmouth.edu]

  • Basal Ganglia Lesion

    The clinical syndrome included left hemiparesis with distal spasticity and without hypotrophy; extraocular movement disorders; severe episodic disinhibition, impulsiveness[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical features Parkinsonism is characterized by varying degrees of: (1) rigidity, (2) bradykinesia, (3) tremor, and (4) postural defects.[dartmouth.edu] Thalamic Syndrome A group of signs and symptoms including sensory loss, pain, dysesthesia, choreoathetosis, tremor, and hemiparesis occur if thalamogeniculate artery is occluded[healthfixit.com]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    Spastic Hemiplegia/Hemiparesis: This type affects only one side of body and is more prevalent in the arms than the legs.[pediatricbrainfoundation.org] The most frequently cited definitions of CP are a disorder of posture and movement due to a defect or lesion in the immature brain [ 1 ] or a group of movement and posture[transbiomedicine.com] […] neonatal brain against hypoxic-ischemic injury Brain reorganisation in cerebral palsy : a high-field functional MRI study. 1 subject, 15 years old, with perinatal left-sided hemiparesis[chasa.org]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    We encountered a patient with the overlapping disorders of migraine with aura, migraine-triggered seizures and recurrent transient hemiparesis caused by atypical hemiplegic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After operation the child had focal neurologic deficits, seizures, and decerebrate posturing, after which she died on the sixth postoperative day. [ 4 ] Other reports have[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org] However, the patient then developed fever, dyspnea, and subsequent right hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
