515 Possible Causes for Thalamic Lesions

  • Thalamic Neoplasm

    The limited differential diagnosis of bilateral thalamic lesions can be further narrowed with knowledge of the specific imaging characteristics of the lesions in combination[ajronline.org] However, the 15 patients reported here had astasia related to unilateral thalamic lesions, documented by autopsy and computed tomography in 2 patients and by computed tomography[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of neurobehavioral symptoms associated with vascular and benign thalamic lesions[ 1 – 3 ].[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]

  • Hyperesthetic Thalamic Pain Syndrome

    Thalamic lesions, particularly those involving the posterior thalamus, can also be associated with increased pain syndromes.[link.springer.com] The lesion impinged more diffusely on the external thalamic nucleus.[assets.cambridge.org] Thalamic pain patients were noted to have lesions mainly in lateral and posterior thalamic nuclei on magnetic resonance imaging [ 11 ].[clinicalgate.com]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    lesions revealed by computed tomography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CT revealed bilateral thalamic lesions, more severe on the side contralateral to the movement disorder, without striatal involvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because of these promising therapeutic results, bilateral thalamic lesions should alert the physician to consider the possibility of deep cerebral vein thrombosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Posterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion with Infarction

    Occlusion of paramedian perforating arteries arising from P1 causes rostral midbrain infarction with or without thalamic lesion.[karger.com] Thalamic lesions result in contralateral face and limb sensory loss.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] syndrome Other Subclavian steal syndrome Upper motor neurone lesion ( Clasp-knife response ) Lower motor neurone lesion[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

  • Posterior Cerebral Artery Thrombosis

  • Brain Stem Hemorrhage

    Typically pure paresthesia is associated with thalamic lesions. This is an atypical presentation for a very rare form of brainstem hemorrhage.[neurology.org] In other words, we are dubious that this collection of symptoms is specific for a single lesion.[dizziness-and-balance.com] Midbrain/Thalamic hemorrahages Movie of mixed jerk torsion and shimmering pendular (9 meg) Midbrain hemorrhages can cause very devastating nystagmus, often with twisting eye[dizziness-and-balance.com]

  • Focal Motor Seizure

    Subjects with thalamic lesions were compared to 15 healthy matched control subjects and to a clinical control group of 22 subjects who had sustained basal ganglia lesions.[n.neurology.org] Objective: To study explicit and implicit learning and memory in subjects with thalamic lesions and to analyze the influence of lesion characteristics on cognitive performance[n.neurology.org] Results: Subjects with thalamic lesions showed well-preserved intellectual and executive functions but demonstrated deficits on measures of attention and psychomotor speed[n.neurology.org]

  • Hemiballismus

    lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of a patient with profound right-sided hemiballismus resulting from an acute unilateral left thalamic lesion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lesions responsible for the ballistic movement in these patients were located near the subthalamic nucleus and in the putamen, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Posterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion

    Occlusion of paramedian perforating arteries arising from P1 causes rostral midbrain infarction with or without thalamic lesion.[karger.com] Thalamic lesions result in contralateral face and limb sensory loss.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] syndrome Other Subclavian steal syndrome Upper motor neurone lesion (Clasp-knife response) Lower motor neurone lesion[en.wikipedia.org]
