59 Possible Causes for Poor Coordination of the Lower Extremity

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Symptoms at lower doses may include mild sedation and poor coordination. At higher doses, there may be slurred speech, trouble walking, and vomiting.[] Extreme doses may result in a decreased effort to breathe (respiratory depression), coma, or death.[]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Overview Peripheral neuropathy, a result of damage to the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (peripheral nerves), often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet. It can also affect other areas of your body. Your peripheral nervous system sends information from your brain and[…][]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    Background Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine. It is most likely caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral disks. Clinically, several syndromes, both overlapping and distinct, are seen. These include neck and shoulder pain, suboccipital pain and headache, radicular[…][]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    A 81-year-old woman was diagnosed as having diabetes mellitus (DM) at 58 years of age. She started insulin therapy the following year, but her blood sugar levels were poorly controlled. At the age of 75, she tested positive for the anti-GAD antibody (7.8 U/ml) and was diagnosed as having slowly progressive type 1[…][]

  • Cannabis Abuse

    Abstract Previous neuroimaging studies showed that use of marijuana can alter patterns of cortical activation during rest or a task challenge. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to examine whether recent cannabis abuse contributed to stress-induced blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) contrast in a[…][]

  • Cerebellar Neoplasm

    This study describes three cases of neuroectodermal cerebellar neoplasms occurring in adults, characterized by a monomorphic population of round cells with scanty cytoplasm and focal areas of lipid accumulation. Astrocytic and neuronal differentiation was confirmed in these cells by glial fibrillary acidic protein and[…][]

  • Meningomyelocele

    BACKGROUND: Meningomyelocele is the most common and complex birth defect of the central nervous system. The operative principle of meningomyelocele repair consists of consecutive separate closures of the neural placode, dura mater, lumbar fascia, subcutaneous layer, and skin. While the neurosurgical techniques for[…][]

  • Subacute Combined Degeneration of Spinal Cord

    2015 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 336.2 Subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord in diseases classified elsewhere 2015 Billable Thru Sept 30/2015 Non-Billable On/After Oct 1/2015 Manifestation Code ICD-9-CM 336.2 is a billable medical code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim, however, 336.2[…][]

  • Acute Cerebellar Ataxia

    A 29-year-old man developed acute cerebellar ataxia following Epstein-Barr virus infection. Serum IgG and IgM antibodies reacted with both nuclear and cytoplasmic elements of neurons. Western blot revealed IgG binding to the 34- and 29-kd bands and IgM binding to the 44-, 37-, and 29-kd bands. The IgM reactivity[…][]

  • Alcoholic Cerebellar Degeneration

    Abstract Although it is now widely acknowledged that the cerebellum contributes to the modulation of higher-order cognitive and emotional functions, this relationship has not been extensively explored in perhaps the largest group of individuals with cerebellar damage, chronic alcoholics. Localised damage to the[…][]
