170 Possible Causes for Nystagmus, Positive Romberg Sign

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    Initial examination revealed nystagmus evoked by a bilateral horizontal gaze with left side dysmetria.[jkna.org] She had positive Romberg sign and failed the right heel-knee-tibia tests.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On examination, there was ophthalmoplegia, nystagmus, areflexia and lower limb and gait ataxia.[eprints.whiterose.ac.uk]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] : nausea, vertigo, nystagmus, the positive past-pointing test and the Romberg test [2].[wikigenes.org] It is suggested that the direction of nystagmus depends upon the severity of each vestibular dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bickerstaff Brainstem Encephalitis

    Physical examination showed restricted eye movement without nystagmus, bilateral flattening of forehead and nasolabial folds, and positive eyelash sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] observed in over half of the patients, together with deep or superficial sensory impairment, facial weakness, bulbar palsy, internal ophthalmoplegia, blepharoptosis and nystagmus[orpha.net] And gaze-evoked nystagmus was observed in one of them.[e-rvs.org]

  • 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.[neuropathologyweb.org] ; and a positive Romberg test.[em-consulte.com] Nystagmus (jerky movements of the eyes at rest) is also likely.[britannica.com]

  • Labyrinthitis

    Nystagmus type: Nystagmus is spontaneous. It is usually fine horizontal but may be mixed horizontal-torsional.[patient.info] 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[doi.org] 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[clinicaladvisor.com]

Acute WKS: Mammillary body hemorrhages WKS, acute lesion.[neuropathology-web.org] , lack of coordination and muscle coordination (ataxia), impaired fine finger movement, positive Babinski’s and Romberg’s signs, light-headedness, altered vision (diplopia[innvista.com] The classic clinical presentation of WE is a triad of eye abnormalities (nystagmus, oculomotor paralysis, paralysis of conjugate gaze), ataxia of stance and gait, and mental[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Cerebellar Ataxia - Neuropathy - Vestibular Areflexia Syndrome

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

  • Central Positional Vertigo
