    […] of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism with pyramidal tract signs has been known as pallido-pyramidal or parkinsonian-pyramidal syndrome since the first description by[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com] Abstract Background: The combination of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism with pyramidal tract signs has been known as pallido-pyramidal or parkinsonian-pyramidal syndrome[n.neurology.org] The phenotype associated with FBXO7 mutations consisted of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism and pyramidal tract signs, thereby matching clinically the pallido-pyramidal[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Increased deep tendon reflex (DTR) Pronator drift [3] Corticospinal/pyramidal tract [ edit ] These are the neural tracts which descend in the ventral horn of the spinal cord[en.wikipedia.org] The presence of the Babinski sign after 12 months is the sign of a non-specific upper motor neuron lesion.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Myelitis

    Neuromyelitis optica (NMO, Devic's disease) is an often severely disabling disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) which mainly affects the optic nerves and spinal cord. NMO was long considered a clinical subform of multiple sclerosis (MS). In 2004, however, Lennon and colleagues described a novel autoantibody in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    Blunt carotid injury associated with cervical spine fractures is a rare entity but potentially lethal. An initial, clinically silent period can be misleading. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are mandatory to avoid neurological damages and death. We present the case of a 36-year-old man diagnosed with an isolated cervical[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Frontal Lobe Neoplasm

    A frontal lobe neoplasm might present with an array of symptoms that are collectively included in the "frontal lobe syndrome". Personality and abrupt emotional changes (aggression, apathy, impulsive behavior), and an overall decline of the functions for which the frontal lobe is crucial - planning, judgment, attention,[…][symptoma.com]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    In addition to pure forms, in which symptoms are limited to lower limb pyramidal tract dysfunction, complicated forms exist with additional neurological signs and usually[nature.com] The main feature of the disease is progressive spasticity in the lower limbs due to pyramidal tract dysfunction.[en.wikipedia.org] 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.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • 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[notes.medicosnotes.com] Neurological examination revealed bilateral pyramidal-tract signs, and paresis of the right arm.[em-consulte.com] All are features of pyramidal tract lesion, except - 1) Involuntary movement 2) Positive Babinski's sign 3) Spasticity 4) Increased deep tendon reflexes 5) NULL[upscgk.com]
