65 Possible Causes for Pyramidal Tract Signs, Unable to Stand

  • Paraparesis

    I couldn’t stand longer than 20 minutes and I needed a cane to get around.[acupuncturerestoreshealth.com] I had difficulty dressing myself and I was unable to continue the work which I had enjoyed doing.[acupuncturerestoreshealth.com]

  • Paraplegia

    Is it a anterior horn cell pyramidal tract lesion • Diffuse LMN Signs and Diffuse UMN signs • Sluggish DTR in upper limbs Exaggerated in lower limbs • Abdominal reflexes characteristically[slideshare.net] All individuals were unable to stand or walk independently or voluntarily move their lower extremities after their injuries.[neurologyreviews.com] Most common is AD (70% to 80%)  characterized by progressive lower limb spasticity secondary to pyramidal tract dysfunction.  results in brisk DTR, extensor planters, muscle[slideshare.net]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    For those who are comfortable while standing, special standing apparatus of work equipment may be considered.[boneandspine.com] The study was carried out on acute SCI patients who were unable to walk without any physical assistance and both groups had the same amount of training.[doi.org] The patient is unable to do elevation activities as hip and knee are locked and all the elevation activities must be accomplished by pure push-up in the shoulder girdle.[boneandspine.com]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    Flaccid weakness gradually changes to pyramidal tract signs, with hyperreflexia, clonus, and extensor responses.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] By the following day the weakness had progressed to a flaccid paraparesis of both lower limbs and she was unable to support herself in a standing position.[kjim.org]

  • Myelitis

    BACKGROUND: HHV7 reactivation has been occasionally reported as a cause of encephalitis or myelitis in transplant recipients, but to our knowledge it has never been associated with neurological disease in HIV-infected patients. We report a case of acute myelitis in an HIV-infected patient, with sustained HHV-7 DNA[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    Acute transverse myelitis is a rare manifestation of dengue infection. To the best of our knowledge, only 6 cases of acute transverse myelitis as a manifestation of dengue infection have been reported thus far. The present study described a case of acute transverse myelitis complicated with subacute thyroiditis[…][spandidos-publications.com]

  • Spinal Cord Transection

    Review Questions: Case 3Following surgical repair of a knife wound the patient is unable to stand or walk becausehe is unable to move or bear weight on his right leg.[slideshare.net]

  • 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] Unable to stand 2 years SMA 3 Kugelberg-Welander disease 18 months-3 years Able to stand and walk Adult SMA 4 Adult Able to stand and walk Adult SMA muscle SMA.[neuropathology-web.org] The presence of the Babinski sign after 12 months is the sign of a non-specific upper motor neuron lesion.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Autosomal dominant juvenile amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and distal hereditary motor neuronopathy with pyramidal tract signs: synonyms for the same disorder?[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Inability to maintain balance in a standing position means that you are unable to maintain an upright position while standing or walking without the assistance of another[ssa.gov] Signs of pyramid release are not always marked and, only recently, non-invasive tests to reveal cortical spinal tract commitment have been incorporated into the medical practice[doi.org]

  • Hemiparesis

    Also, myoclonus or tremor is seen in up to 38% patients, hyperreflexia and other pyramidal tract signs in 85% patients and psychosis, visual hallucinations and paranoid delusions[ijcasereportsandimages.com] For example, a patient might be unable to lift his or her arms.[spinalcord.com] ., Kuroiwa, T. (2008) Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Chronic Subdural Hematoma: Correlation between Clinical Signs and Fractional Anisotropy in the Pyramidal Tract.[scindeks.ceon.rs]
