  • Alzheimer Disease

    Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the third most expensive disease in the United States, costing society approximately 100 billion each year. It is one of the most prevalent illnesses in the elderly population, and with the aging of society, will become even more significant. Costs associated with AD include direct medical[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    The clinical symptoms of cervical spondylotic amyotrophy (CSA) are motor loss or atrophy with an absent or insignificant sensory deficit or a long tract sign; however, the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] tract signs and symptoms; 3) a combined syndrome – which includes both root and long tract signs and symptoms and is the commonest form; 4) a vascular syndrome – may not[termedia.pl] Clinical manifestations The clinical definition of a myelopathy is the presence of long tract signs, which are the result of the spinal afferent or efferent (pyramidal) nerve[termedia.pl]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). Extensive and repeated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations showed only diffuse abnormality in brain and spinal cord, but no focal lesions. We propose[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Intrapontine Hemorrhage

    Depending on the speed at which the hematoma enlarges and the exact location, presentation may include 1,2 : decreased level of consciousness (most common) long tract signs[radiopaedia.org] Arm and leg weakness, increased deep tendon reflexes, and upward Babinski sign on neurologic examination may result from damage to the long motor tracts traveling from the[childhoodbraintumor.org] Together, these three sets of cranial nerve, long tract and cerebellar signs are known as the “classic triad” of DIPG presentation, though many patients may not demonstrate[childhoodbraintumor.org]

  • Myelitis

    The symptoms and signs depend on the level of the spinal cord affected and the extent of involvement of the long tracts.[prognosisapp.com]

  • Myelopathy

    Physical examination commonly elicits long tract signs such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, and abnormal reflexes such as Babinski or Hoffman's sign.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu] […] sensory deficits - may be the least advanced form of the disease; - Brachialgia and cord syndrome: radicular pain in the upper extremity along with motor and/or sensory long-tract[wheelessonline.com] tract signs, ambulatory Class IIIB Objective weakness, long tract signs, non-ambulatory Japanese Orthopaedic Association Classification A point scoring system (17 total)[orthobullets.com]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    A 28-year-old healthy man was admitted to our hospital because of right-sided headache, vomiting, and lower back pain after the administration of vardenafil. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed a small, right-sided, subdural hematoma. A lumbar magnetic resonance imaging showed a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis
