53 Possible Causes for Laryngeal Stridor, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Hypoparathyroidism

    BACKGROUND Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification, also known as Fahr's disease or Fahr's syndrome, is a rare neurological disorder characterized by abnormal calcified deposits in the basal ganglia. Here, we report a case of Fahr's syndrome with calcification of the basal ganglia due to hypoparathyroidism in a patient[…][]

  • Hypocalcemia

    jerks In more severe cases of hypocalcemia, findings can include: -Laryngospasm and stridor -Tetany -Altered mental status -Apnea -Seizures -Hypotension -Decreased myocardial[] stridor, bronchospasm Chronic Neuropsychiatric – cognitive deficits, extrapyramidal symptoms Dermatologic – dermatitis, dry skin, brittle nails Dental – enamel hypoplasia[] stridor tremor and chorea (may be misdiagnosed as seizures) seizures Hypocalcemic newborns may present with hypotonia, apnea, poor feeding, jitteriness, or seizures.[]

  • Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome

    Clinical features of OMS include opsoclonus with myoclonic jerks and cerebellar ataxia.[] Stridor in Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome. ( 28823798 ) 2017 29 Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome: A New Era of Improved Prognosis?[] jerks.[]

  • Hypomagnesemia

    Laryngeal stridor Seizures Respiratory depression Cardiac arrhythmia Cardiac arrest Dysphagia Nausea Vomiting Anorexia Drowsiness Confusion Vertigo Leg and foot cramps Assessment-Physical[] Hypomagnesemia Overview-Complications Laryngeal stridor Seizures Respiratory depression Cardiac arrhythmia Cardiac arrest Hypomagnesemia Assessment-History Dysphagia Nausea[] Patients may exhibit tetany, seizure activity, and laryngeal stridor secondary to laryngospasm; on physical assessment, you may find a positive Chvostek sign and Trousseau[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    This case demonstrates that this occurs because amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients' upper motor neuron reflex laryngeal closure and stridor cause upper airway collapse[]

  • Gaucher Disease

    Before the introduction of miglustat, this patient experienced frequent multifocal myoclonic jerks (up to 50 generalized seizures per day) as well as severe dystonia in his[] ) due to contraction of the muscles of the voice box (laryngeal spasm).[] […] difficulties; abnormal positioning or bending of the neck (retroflexion); and failure to gain weight and grow at the expected rate (failure to thrive) and high-pitched breathing (stridor[]

  • Biotinidase Deficiency

    Clinical findings include seizures, ataxia, alopecia and dermatitis with atypical findings of myoclonic jerks, neuropathy and spastic paraparesis.[] A case of a child with a biotinidase deficiency who had a laryngeal stridor as a leading symptom is presented.[] We report a 15-month-old boy with profound biotinidase deficiency who presented with laryngeal stridor and subsequently developed severe ataxia and lactic acidosis.[]

  • Metabolic Disease

    Laryngeal stridor was reported as a leading presentation of biotinidase deficiency [ 3 ]. Polypnoea is a frequent neonatal feature of congenital lactic acidoses [ 2 ].[]

  • Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis

    […] upper vena cava compression and dysphonia by the involvement of the recurrent laryngeal nerve.[] There may be complications resulting from the compression of the aerodigestive tract (dyspnea, stridor and dysphagia) and still, but less frequently, signs and symptoms of[]

  • Polycythemia Neonatorum

    The infant presents with a hoarse cry or respiratory stridor, most often caused by unilateral laryngeal nerve paralysis.[] During delivery, similar head movement, when marked, may injure the laryngeal nerve, accounting for approximately 10% of cases of vocal cord paralysis attributed to birth[]
