216 Possible Causes for Tonic Posturing

  • Status Epilepticus

    Clinical manifestations include rhythmic eye movements, rowing or pedaling motions of the legs, tonic posture, or less commonly focal or multifocal generalized tonic, clonic[pedsinreview.aappublications.org] Frontal lobe epilepsy manifests as motor seizures, including not only tonic seizures and seizures with fencing postures but also those with complex gesticulation.[f1000research.com] […] autonomic seizures, psychic seizures, and parosmia Lateral temporal lesions auditory hallucinations and language disturbance Frontal lobe epilepsy motor seizures not only tonic[f1000research.com]

  • Continuous Spike-and-Slow-Waves during Sleep

    The history of left upper extremity tonic posturing during sleep is also suggestive of a right hemispheric focus.[jcsm.aasm.org] On rare occasions, the patient would sit up in bed, call out loudly to his bed partner, and exhibit tonic posturing of the left upper extremity.[jcsm.aasm.org]

  • Vasovagal Syncope

    A 57-year-old woman with refractory vasovagal syncope and a sinus pause of 6.8 seconds during tilt-table test accepted the suggestion of atrial vagal denervation. Radiofrequency pulses were delivered on positive vagal reflex sites according to the standard of heart rate (HR) drop 20% after high frequency[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Drop Attacks

    The tonic posture is still evident. (6–7) The patient remains unresponsive, motionless, for 31 seconds.[jnnp.bmj.com] Falls may result from an atonia in postural muscles, or a clonic jerk, or a tonic contraction of axial and leg muscles leading to a loss of balance.[jnnp.bmj.com] , to a sudden atonia involving the postural muscles.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Infantile Hemiplegia

    Startle epilepsy is provoked by unexpected sensory stimuli, mainly auditory, and reveals subsequent tonic posturing of the limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patients with SEIBD both had hemiplegia, due to gross contralateral hemispheric lesions, and suffered from tonic postural seizures, frequently provoked by sudden unexpected[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Firstly, video-polygraphic recordings of startle-evoked seizures, triggered by unexpected auditory stimuli, showed tonic asymmetrical postures with ictal EEG characterized[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spasmodic Torticollis

    Spasmodic torticollis is a movement disorder of the nuchal muscles, characterized by tremor or by tonic posturing of the head in a rotated, twisted, or abnormally flexed or[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The movements may be sustained ('tonic'), jerky ('clonic'), or a combination.[dystonia-foundation.org] Cervical dystonia, also known as spasmodic torticollis, is a focal dystonia characterized by neck muscles contracting involuntarily, causing abnormal movements and awkward posture[dystonia-foundation.org]

  • Carbamazepine

    Seizures were focal, alternating between hemispheres, and characterized by asymmetric tonic posturing associated with apnea and desaturation, followed by unilateral or bilateral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ohtahara Syndrome

    Tonic seizures or tonic posturing was a feature of all cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We suggest that the two syndromes may represent a continuum and that the prominence of tonic seizures in the Ohtahara syndrome may be an indication of brainstem dysfunction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis 3

    Ocularly, Batten disease is characterized by a rapid deterioration of vision, progressing to blindness within a few years. Onset typically occurs at between 5 and 10 years of age. The fundus shows a bull's eye maculopathy, diffuse pigmentary degeneration, arteriolar attenuation and optic atrophy, and an extinguished[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Holoprosencephaly Type 2
