130 Possible Causes for Steppage Gait

  • Charcot Marie Tooth Disease

    The clinical similarities between CMT and FRDA include a symmetrical neuropathy (axonal in FRDA), steppage gait, and eventually scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] swing clearance ('steppage-gait').[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This results in an abnormal "steppage" gait.[orthoinfo.aaos.org]

  • Peroneal Nerve Paralysis

    Subjects demonstrated a steppage gait during swing phase and increased inversion just prior to heelstrike (p less than 0.05).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Abstract Recent reports have emphasized the occurrence of a myopathy in chronic alcoholism associated with hypokalemia. This report of hypokalemic myopathy in a chronic alcoholic, emphasizes the primary myopathic nature of the condition and attributes it to a possible non-specific effect of the hypokalemia on[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Distal Myopathy Type Welander

    In the lower limb the anterior tibial muscle and toe extensors are typically affected leading to walking difficulties and steppage gait.[orpha.net]

  • Distal Myopathy

    The first symptoms for referral were clumsiness with the hands and frequent stumbling from a steppage gait.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her three daughters presented with early steppage gait and showed variable progression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Initially, increased tripping and a steppage gait are often noted because of foot drop.[treat-nmd.eu]

  • Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathies

    Onset is typically in the first decade with leg are-flexia, gait disorder (toe walking or steppage gait), foot muscle atrophy or pes cavus, occasionally short Achilles tendons[academlib.com] Proprioceptive sensory loss can cause sensory ataxia and a steppage gait. Tasks involving fine motor control of the hands may also become progressively more difficult.[patient.info] gait.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

  • Miyoshi Myopathy

    Three patients showed steppage gait. Genetic linkage analysis identified a maximum lod score of 3.34 (θ 0.00) at marker D2S292 in 2p13.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] gait Weakness Distal Proximal Arms before Legs in some Finger extensors & Interossei Atrophy: Distal arms & legs Sensory: Loss in 40% Other Pes cavus (20%) Hypertension ([neuromuscular.wustl.edu] […] attempting to dorsiflex toes Onset Age Common: Childhood or Young adult; 1.5 to 26 years Occasional: Neonatal or 6th decade Interfamilial variation Distal leg weakness: Steppage[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 2

    Proprioceptive sensory loss can cause sensory ataxia and a steppage gait. Tasks involving fine motor control of the hands may also become progressively more difficult.[patient.info] gait.[journals.plos.org] A bilateral foot drop may result in a steppage gait in which the patient must lift the knees very high in order to clear the toes.[aafp.org]
