86 Possible Causes for Long Tract Signs, Pyramidal Tract Signs

  • 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[] tract signs, ambulatory Class IIIB Objective weakness, long tract signs, non-ambulatory Japanese Orthopaedic Association Classification A point scoring system (17 total)[] […] 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[]

  • 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.[] I always thought a singular lesion in pyramidal tract would only cause Babiniski sign and loss of superficial reflexes.[]

  • Pontine Glioma

    Of patients with available data, 755 (82%) patients presented with one or more cranial nerve palsy, or cerebellar sign, 468 (51%) presented with pyramidal tract sign, and[] tract signs in the extremities.[] With pontine and cervicomedullary lesions, cranial nerve or long tract signs are observed commonly.[]

  • 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.[] In the classical case the tumor therefore presents with an early segmental differential sensory deficit, later followed by long tract signs, with subsequent weakness & wasting[] Myelopathy may be evident with central spinal cord tumors, resulting in spasticity, paresis, hyperactive reflexes, Babinski’s sign.[]

  • Myelitis

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

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    The main feature of the disease is progressive spasticity in the lower limbs due to pyramidal tract dysfunction.[] The term hereditary spastic paraplegia was coined by Anita Harding in 1983. [9] Signs and symptoms [ edit ] Symptoms depend on the type of HSP inherited.[]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    The symptoms and signs depend upon the level of the spinal cord involved and the extent of the involvement of the various long tracts .[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Multiple sclerosis (MS, disseminated sclerosis, encephalomyelitis disseminata) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Multiple sclerosis is divided into the following categories: Relapsing-remitting MS, Secondary progressive MS, Primary progressive MS and Progressive-relapsing MS. Individuals[…][]

  • Lacunar Infarction

    Abstract Lacunar infarction is traditionally ascribed to lipohyalinosis or microatheroma. We report the case of 40-year-old man, without traditional risk factors for ischemic stroke, who presented to the Emergency Department with recurrent episodes of transient right-sided weakness and paresthesia. Lacunar[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) is one of the subtypes of multiple sclerosis (MS) distinguished by a slow and irreversible course of myelopathy and overall neurological decline. Contrary to other MS forms, significant female predilection is not observed. Spastic paraparesis and progressive ataxia are[…][]
