752 Possible Causes for Nystagmus, Obstructive Hydrocephalus

  • Brain Neoplasm

    […] hemianopia or partial visual field deficits Anosmia may occur with frontal lobe tumors Brainstem and cerebellar tumors induce cranial nerve palsies, ataxia, incoordination, nystagmus[emedicine.medscape.com] Symptoms, as a result of a mass effect from the tumour or due to obstructive hydrocephalus, include morning headaches, nausea, vomiting, diplopia (a manifestation of sixth[bestpractice.bmj.com] Brain stem Cranial nerve dysfunction, ataxia, papillary abnormalities, nystagmus, hemiparesis, autonomic dysfunction Table 3.[aafp.org]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    Eye movement recordings in two patients with Arnold-Chiari malfomation type 1 showed, in addition to downbeat and gaze evoked nystagmus, intermittent nystagmus of skew.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Variable other central nervous system abnormalities might be present (partial or complete agenesis of the corpus callosum, a small fourth ventricle, obstructive hydrocephalus[orpha.net] It may be associated with stenosis of the aqueduct of Sylvius with obstructive hydrocephalus, and atrophy of the brain tissue.[whonamedit.com]

  • Cerebellar Hemorrhage

    Abstract A 63-year-old woman presented with a metastatic focus of papillary thyroid carcinoma in the cerebellopontine angle manifesting as lateral gazing nystagmus and slurred[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The hematoma in the fourth ventricle was gently removed through the hematoma cavity, followed by thorough saline irrigation to release obstructive hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A careful search for subtle cerebellar signs, including dysarthria, limb ataxia, nystagmus or tandem gait instability, absent in true gastroenteritis cases, could potentially[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    Remaining 8 patients were also symptomatic for vertigo, but they had spontaneous nystagmus. The latter group was called "disease control."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mezzadri JJOtero JMOttino CA Management of 50 spontaneous cerebellar haemorrhages: importance of obstructive hydrocephalus.[doi.org] It is important to observe the nystagmus periodically after onset.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    Clinical features include occipital bossing, progressive head enlargement, bulging of anterior fontanelle, papilledema, ataxia, gait disturbances, nystagmus, and intellectual[hon.ch] hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The bulk of clinical signs will be noted in the central nervous system with significant signs of cerebellar dysfunction, such as ataxia and nystagmus.[symptoma.com]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    […] associated MEB disease include increased pressure within the eyes (infantile glaucoma), clouding of the lenses of the eyes (cataracts), rapid, involuntary eye movements (nystagmus[rarediseases.org] […] hypoplasia are also very frequent.36,38 Ocular involvement is an invariable feature, ranging from severe myopia and retinal hypoplasia to congenital and infantile glaucoma, nystagmus[healio.com] hydrocephalus, neuronal heterotopias, corpus callosum agenesis, fusion of the hemispheres, and ponto-cerebellar hypoplasia with fourth ventricle dilatation (Figs. 2 and 3[doi.org]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    (SN) or direction changed bidirectional gaze-evoked nystagmus (GEN).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Computed tomography showed cerebellar infarction with obstructive hydrocephalus. External ventricular drainage was performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) was done to relieve the acute obstructive hydrocephalus. The patient was later discharged with only mild residual ataxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Parinaud Syndrome

    Only 65.0% patients had the classical triad of vertical gaze palsy, convergence-retraction nystagmus and light-near dissociation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Eight cases of obstructive hydrocephalus manifesting palsy of upward gaze and other features of the Sylvian aqueduct syndrome are reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hydrocephalus (a medical term used to describe obstructive non- communicating hydrocephalus) below the cerebral aqueduct.[yourhealthremedy.com]

  • Pineoblastoma

    […] obstructive hydrocephalus and/or Parinaud's syndrome which is characterized by the following: upward gaze paralysis, normal vertical eye movement with doll's head maneuver, nystagmus[path.upmc.edu] Routine treatment consists of operative management of obstructive hydrocephalus and cerebrospinal fluid studies followed by maximal resection and adjuvant chemotherapy/radiotherapy[scholars.northwestern.edu] Nystagmus was noted, as was a slight right-sided facial palsy.[healio.com]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    The symptomatology of the cases with saltatory evolution had subacute onset, in 1-3 days, with hypotonia, nystagmus and posture disorders.[medichub.ro] Patients with an intraventricular haematoma with no evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus were also excluded from the study.[biomedcentral.com] The rest of 21% of cases had catastrophic clinical findings: bulging anterior fontanelle, dehiscent cranial sutures, projectile vomiting, fixation of pupils, nystagmus, seizures[medichub.ro]
