48 Possible Causes for Long Tract Signs, Pyramidal Tract Signs

  • Thoracic Spinal Cord Tumor

    Weakness is due to the involvement of the pyramidal or corticospinal tract. The degree of motor impairment may range from clumsiness to complete quadriplegia.[] Abstract A patient, presenting with incapacitating diarrhea of 1-month duration, developed orthostatic hypotension and progressive long tract central nervous system signs.[] Myelopathy may be evident with central spinal cord tumors, resulting in spasticity, paresis, hyperactive reflexes, Babinski’s sign.[]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    In addition to pure forms, in which symptoms are limited to lower limb pyramidal tract dysfunction, complicated forms exist with additional neurological signs and usually[] tract signs, facial dysmorphism and adducted thumbs.[] The main feature of the disease is progressive spasticity in the lower limbs due to pyramidal tract dysfunction.[]

  • Pyramidal Tract Lesion

    Babinski sign in absence of Pyramidal Tract Lesion can occur in physiological and pathological conditions Physiological causes of Babinski sign in absence of Pyramidal Tract[] Neurological examination revealed bilateral pyramidal-tract signs, and paresis of the right arm.[] All are features of pyramidal tract lesion, except - 1) Involuntary movement 2) Positive Babinski's sign 3) Spasticity 4) Increased deep tendon reflexes 5) NULL[]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    This case highlights the need to look for long tract signs of physical exam to explore possible causes of cervical myelopathy to account for weakness in the legs, which cannot[] […] 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[] When the stenosis and myelopathy is severe, most patients will develop long tract signs (UMN) consisting of a wide-based gait, balance difficulties, and weakness.[]

  • Myelitis

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

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Abstract It has been suggested that physical trauma, involving the cervical spinal cord or the brain, and psychological stress may precede MS onset or may influence the disease course, although this hypothesis has mainly come from anecdotal case reports or small uncontrolled or controlled studies. So far there are[…][]

  • Lacunar Infarction

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The fluctuation of circadian blood pressure (BP) is of great diversity in patients with essential hypertension and may provide significant prognostic value for stroke. However, it remains uncertain whether reverse-dipper pattern of BP influences the incidence of lacunar infarction in[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Spinal neurodegeneration is an important determinant of disability progression in patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. Advanced imaging techniques, such as single-voxel (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy and q-space imaging, have increased pathological specificity for neurodegeneration, but are[…][]

  • Cervical Spinal Cord Tumor

    Loading player ... The player requires Flash Player plugin Case description These tumors grow inside spinal cord, locally or extend to many segments of spinal cord. These result in very significant weakness of limbs with gross physical disability. Bladder and bowel disturbances, ependymomas, astrocytomas are the most[…][]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    BACKGROUND: Aggressive screening for blunt cerebrovascular injury (BCVI) and prompt anticoagulation for documented injuries has resulted in a significant reduction in ischemic neurologic events. An association between vertebral artery injuries (VAIs) and specific cervical spine fracture patterns has been[…][]
