86 Possible Causes for Hemiplegia, Postural Defect

  • Homocystinuria

    Given her previous psychiatric history, she was misdiagnosed with malingering until hemiplegia and incontinence became apparent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs and symptoms include mental retardation, thromboembolic events that can eventually lead to aphasia, hemiplegia, pseudobulbar palsy or ataxia, features of Marfan's syndrome[symptoma.com] Elevated urine sulfite, thiosulfate, and S-sulfocysteine; decreased sulfate Clinical features: Developmental delay, ectopia lentis, eczema, delayed dentition, fine hair, hemiplegia[merckmanuals.com]

  • Episodic Ataxia

    In particular, the amino acid change p.Thr226Arg is associated with epilepsy, infantile contractures, postural abnormalities, and skeletal deformities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our data show that a heterozygous mutation in EAAT1 can lead to decreased glutamate uptake, which can contribute to neuronal hyperexcitability to cause seizures, hemiplegia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although confusion occurs in 21% of patients with HM, we found only one case in the literature of confusional episodes associated with ataxia without hemiplegia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Shy Drager Syndrome

    The main haemodynamic defect was an impressive postural fall in stroke volume and cardiac output pointing to denervation of the capacitance vessels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Catecholamine metabolites reflect the central nature of the neurological defect (Polinsky et al., 1981; Kopin et al., 1983; Polinsky et al., 1984; Polinsky et al., 1987).[mc.vanderbilt.edu] […] and urinary levels of norepinephrine are often near normal in the unstimulated state in patients with MSA, but they do not rise appropriately on assumption of the upright posture[mc.vanderbilt.edu]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    […] due to a defect in or damage to the developing brain'; a developmental paediatrician performed neurological examinations at 18 months 1 RCT: definition not clear; children[doi.org] To assess quantitatively the effects of Neuromuscular Taping (NMT) on the upper limb in a female child with left hemiplegia, due to Cerebral Palsy (CP).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: diplegia; fine motor skills; finger perception; finger sensitivity; hemiplegia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Inherited Congenital Spastic Tetraplegia

    […] resulting from defects in the developing central nervous system.[genecards.org] […] and hemiparesis G81.1 Spastic hemiplegia[coding-pro.com] […] side G8112Spastic hemiplegia affecting left dominant side G8113Spastic hemiplegia affecting right nondominant side G8114Spastic hemiplegia affecting left nondominant side[cms.gov]

  • Ataxic Cerebral Palsy

    The postural defects and resulting joint instability may lead to increased wear and tear of the weight bearing joints in the body.[medhelp.org] Spastic cerebral palsy may manifest in a few different ways, including: Hemiplegia – The muscles on one side of the body are affected. Diplegia – Both legs are affected.[birthinjurycenter.com] Hemiplegia means one side of the body is affected, diplegia is where two limbs are affected, monoplegia where one limb is affected and quadriplegia means all four limbs (and[nhs.uk]

  • Autonomic Neuropathy

    However, the following have been identified and may be involved: Single gene defects. Accumulation of toxins. Autoantibodies.[patient.info] Ganglionic receptor antibodies (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). Ganglioside autoantibodies (Guillain-Barré syndrome).[patient.info]

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Postural tachycardia syndrome. Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology 20(3):352-358. MacLean, A., E. Allen, and T. Magath. 1944.[nap.edu] Virus in brain of child with hemiplegia, hemiconvulsions, and epilepsy. Lancet. 1977; 2 666 63 Walter G F, Renella R R.[doi.org] Orthostatic tachycardia and orthostatic hypotension: Defects in the return of venous blood to the heart. American Heart Journal 27(2):145-163. Maes, M., F. N. M.[nap.edu]

  • Carotid Artery Dissection

    After carotid stenting, left relative afferent pupillary defect disappeared and TMB was not provoked anymore by upright posture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe the case of seven year old girl, who suffered from left internal carotid artery dissection following adenoidectomy, leading to right hemiplegia with global aphasia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] there were no ischemic infarct findings on the admission cerebral computerized tomography (CT), such findings were observed on two cerebral CTs taken because of the left hemiplegia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thunderclap Headache

    The typical patient with SIH has a continuous diffuse headache that worsens with upright posture (sitting, standing) and improves with lying down.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She subsequently developed hemi-convulsions followed by right hemiplegia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] SPONTANEOUS INTRACRANIAL HYPOTENSION Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is a condition of low CSF volume and/or pressure caused by CSF leaking from a dural defect,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
