153 Possible Causes for Nystagmus, Positive Romberg Sign

  • Cerebellar Ataxia - Neuropathy - Vestibular Areflexia Syndrome

    Vestibular function testing showed severely reduced horizontal nystagmus in response to bithermal caloric stimulation.[] All patients showed gait and limb ataxia, positive Romberg sign, cerebellar dysarthria, gaze-evoked nystagmus, absent deep tendon reflexes, and impaired vibratory sensation[] , Gaze Evoked Nystagmus, Square Wave Jerks Creator Daniel R.[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Sensory Ataxia

    […] more bizzare forms of nystagmus can also be seen eg. periodic alternating nystagmus, pendular nystagmus, divergent nystagmus, pure torsional nystagmus on vertical gaze (*[] A loss of balance upon eye closure is a positive Romberg sign and is interpreted as indicating a deficit in proprioception.[] Romberg's sign .[]

  • Sensory Ataxic Neuropathy - Dysarthria - Ophthalmoparesis Syndrome

    […] or Hand: SCA 8 , 12 , 15-16 , 19 , 27 Palatal: SCA 20 Normal lifespan: SCA 6 , 11 Eye 60 Slow saccades Early/prominent: SCA 2 , 7 Late: SCA 1 , 3 , 28 Very rarely: SCA 6 Nystagmus[] Romberg sign * Depression * Dysphagia * Nystagmus * Reduced position sense * Mild cognitive impairment * Reduced vibration sense * Balance problems * Frequent falls * Muscle[] Romberg's sign .[]

  • Diffuse Serous Labyrinthitis

    nystagmus).[] Romberg’s sign – some patients* with cerebellar ataxia also have a positive Romberg’s sign and they are also dependent on visual cues for maintenance of postural balance[] This type of jerk nystagmus has been termed "optokinetic" nystagmus or "railway" nystagmus. The other major type of nystagmus is termed "pendular" nystagmus.[]

  • Labyrinthine Concussion

    Slight nystagmus on fistula test is indicative of oval or round window fistulae while strong nystagmus can indicate superior semicircular canal dehiscence.[] Examine Lost shock check Threshold hearing function test, fistula test, position test and Romberg sign.[] Nystagmus is typically horizontal or torsional and direction-fixed.[]

  • Subacute Combined Degeneration of Spinal Cord

    Recovery from nystagmus and confusion is slower. Amnesia does not respond to treatment fully. Acute WKS: Mammillary body hemorrhages WKS, acute lesion.[] ; and a positive Romberg test.[] Nystagmus (jerky movements of the eyes at rest) is also likely.[]

  • Vestibular Neuronitis

    Abstract We evaluated the vestibular functions, especially for positional nystagmus and caloric nystagmus, in 43 cases of vestibular neuronitis for long periods after its[] Babinski-Weil test, Romberg sign, and Unterberger test 12 were used for the evaluation of postural balance and gait.[] It is suggested that the direction of nystagmus depends upon the severity of each vestibular dysfunction.[]

  • Central Positional Vertigo

    The direction of nystagmus is important for the diagnosis of central paroxysmal positioning nystagmus (cPPV) . Neuro-Ophthalmology, Vol. 21, Issue. 2, p. 97.[] (Dix-Hallpike testing) Auditory: Rinne and Weber tests Vestibular: Romberg’s sign (regular or sharpened), Fukuda step test, head-thrust test (Halmagyi) Gait: Base, stability[] The first case had combined torsional and horizontal nystagmus to the right in a head-hanging position. The nystagmus lacked latency and did not diminish easily.[]

  • Labyrinthitis

    Nystagmus type: Nystagmus is spontaneous. It is usually fine horizontal but may be mixed horizontal-torsional.[] Additional signs of vestibular neuritis include a positive Romberg's sign (i.e. when the eyes are closed the patient falls towards the affected ear) and a positive head‐thrust[] Nystagmus which changes direction on eccentric gaze (i.e., right beating nystagmus with right gaze and left beating nystagmus with left gaze, with or without nystagmus with[]

  • Ataxia Telangiectasia

    Abnormal ocular movements were seen in 13/15 (saccadic intrusion in 8 and nystagmus in 5).[] In addition, the spinal signs involving posterior and lateral columns along the positive Romberg's sign (inability to maintain balance when the eyes are shut and feet are[] These patients do, however, have scoliosis and a positive Romberg's sign.[]
