  • Oromandibular Dystonia

    The jaw opening increased to 50 mm. Coronoidotomy is useful for patients with jaw-closing dystonia in whom other therapies are ineffective.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She had slightly hyperactive deep tendon reflexes on the left side and her gait was ataxic. Her psychiatric examination was normal.[tremorjournal.org] What are the characteristics of jaw dystonia?[infodystonia.com]

  • Paroxysmal Exertion-Induced Dyskinesia

    Other types of dystonias include Merge's syndrome (spasms of the jaw muscles when opening and closing of the mouth).[encyclopedia.com] Brisk, deep tendon reflexes, developmental delay and intellectual disability (most frequently mild) may also be observed.[orpha.net] Oromandibular dystonia This type of dystonia affects the jaw and mouth muscles. The mouth can pull outwards and upwards.[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • X-linked Parkinsonism-Spasticity Syndrome

    Dystonia Focal, multifocal, segmental or generalized dystonia Idiopathic, genetic, and secondary dystonia Craniofacial dystonia (including blepharospasm, jaw dystonia, tongue[movementdisorders.us] Features suggestive of lower extremity spasticity (brisk deep-tendon reflexes, ankle clonus, frequent falls and/or dystonic extension of the big toe [the striatal toe]) with[neuroweb.us] Oromandibular dystonia (OMD) : dystonic contractions of muscle groups of the jaw, tongue, lips, or lower face.[stanfordmedicine25.stanford.edu]

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Dyskinesia or dystonia of the throat, face, jaw, and head and neck may be important clues to the underlying neurological disorder—for example, Whipples disease, coeliac disease[doi.org] Fasciculations, spasticity, hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, extensor plantar reflexes, clumsiness, stiffness of movement, weight loss, fatigue, and difficulty controlling[merckmanuals.com] tendon reflexes, clonus, and Babinski sign.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 5

    Jaw-opening dystonia Blepharospasm, orobuccal dystonia, antecollis Dystonic lingual tremor, jaw-opening dystonia Facial dystonia, oromandibular dystonia, dystonic posture[movementdisorders.org] Non-cerebellar signs such as facial myokimia, resting tremor, writer's cramp, impaired vibration sense and brisk deep tendon reflexes have been reported in some patients.[orpha.net] Dystonia worsened over years and resulted in disabling jaw-opening dystonia (see Video 1, part Ib).[movementdisorders.org]

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    Dyskinesias almost always start in the face and/or mouth and manifest as clenching of the teeth or jaw dystonia.[dx.doi.org] Examination on the day of admission revealed an awake, alert, and interactive male with focal speech production difficulties, asymmetric facial grimace, hyperactive deep tendon[dx.doi.org] Benztropine, and eventually trihexy-phenidyl, proved beneficial in reducing the patient's rigidity, jaw dystonia, and parkinsonism.[dx.doi.org]

  • Primary Torsion Dystonia 6

    Segmental dystonia involving eyelids (blepharospasm) and other facial, jaw (oromandibular) and neck (cervical) muscles is referred to "cranial-cervical dystonia."[bcm.edu] Features suggestive of lower extremity spasticity (brisk deep-tendon reflexes, ankle clonus, frequent falls and/or dystonic extension of the big toe [the striatal toe]) with[neuroweb.us] Oromandibular dystonia : A dystonia of the jaw, lips, and/or the tongue.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Ataxia

    Paraneoplastic jaw dystonia and laryngospasm with antineuronal nuclear autoantibody type 2 (anti-Ri). Arch Neurol. 2010;67:1109–15.[doi.org] He presented a moderate-to-severe spastic tetraparesis, brisk deep tendon reflexes, moderate dysarthria, occasional difficulty in speaking, and mild delay in swallowing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was fixed and painful dystonia with no change with posture. There was no dystonia of other body parts such as jaw or limbs.[neurology.org]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 13

    Jaw-opening dystonia Blepharospasm, orobuccal dystonia, antecollis Dystonic lingual tremor, jaw-opening dystonia Facial dystonia, oromandibular dystonia, dystonic posture[movementdisorders.org] Among these subjects, four had brisk deep tendon reflexes, one of whom also had mild lower extremity spasticity and a slight tremor.[link.springer.com] deep tendon reflexes, and loss of the sense of vibration. [2] [3] SCA13 is caused by changes or mutations in the KCNC3 gene and it is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
