34 Possible Causes for Impaired Tandem Gait

  • Shy Drager Syndrome

    Abstract Growth Hormone (GH) secretion was studied in a 61-year-old woman with idiopathic orthostatic hypotension (IOH) or Shy-Drager Syndrome. The 24-hour pattern of GH secretion showed multiple daytime peaks and little nighttime activity. The largest daytime peak of 35.0 ng/ml is much greater than the levels[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hereditary Essential Tremor 4

    Essential tremor (ET) plus: Tremor with the characteristics of ET and additional neurologic signs of uncertain significance such as impaired tandem gait, questionable dystonic[online.epocrates.com] […] posturing, memory impairment, or other mild neurologic signs of unknown significance that do not suffice to make an additional syndrome classification or diagnosis.[online.epocrates.com]

  • Idiopathic CD4 Lymphocytopenia

    He also had dysdiadokinesia (rapid alternating movements) and impaired tandem gait with an impaired right gag reflex. There was no facial asymmetry or facial numbness.[ijmm.org]

  • Essential Tremor

    Essential tremor is a frequent cause of tremor in elderly patients and in some cases is associated with impaired tandem gait and cognitive deficits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONTEXT: The fragile X premutation has recently been reported to be associated with a neurodegenerative syndrome, chiefly characterized by intention tremor, gait ataxia, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Orthostatic Tremor

    Essential tremor (ET) plus: Tremor with the characteristics of ET and additional neurologic signs of uncertain significance such as impaired tandem gait, questionable dystonic[online.epocrates.com] […] posturing, memory impairment, or other mild neurologic signs of unknown significance that do not suffice to make an additional syndrome classification or diagnosis.[online.epocrates.com]

  • Ataxia

    Three years after her initial presentation, her examination showed hypometric saccades and reduced right arm swing and only mild impaired tandem gait.[neurology.org] Tandem gait becomes impaired and, later, regular gait can be frankly ataxic with a broad-based and lurching quality.[bestpractice.bmj.com] These patients will have difficulty when walking in tandem.[mdedge.com]

  • Cerebellar Ataxia

    In detail, the following may be observed: Vertigo and dizziness Imbalance and unsteady, staggering gait as well as impaired tandem gait Hypotonia, tremor, dysdiadochokinesia[symptoma.com] These are most easily recognized while observing the patient's gait as well as their limb and eye movements.[symptoma.com]

  • Cerebellar Disease

    Tandem gait The cerebellar patient will not be able to walk heel-to-toe. A sign of anterior cerebellar lobe dysfunction.[derangedphysiology.com] Gait ataxia without limb impairment indicates damage to the anterior superior vermis.[derangedphysiology.com]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Participants with polyneuropathy had worse gait parameters on the walkway, including lower walking speed and cadence, and more errors in tandem walking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: Chronic polyneuropathy strongly associates with impairment in the ability to perform daily activities and relates to worse gait and an increased history of falling[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Wilson Disease

    Cerebellar involvement is associated with ocular movement abnormalities, limb incoordination, impaired tandem gait, and a wide-based gait.[web.archive.org]
