87 Possible Causes for Truncal Instability

  • Alcoholic Cerebellar Degeneration

    instability, with generally preserved coordination of the upper extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical manifestations evolve over months to years and include truncal instability, broad-based stance and gait ataxia.[urmc.rochester.edu] The vermis is concerned with midline and truncal position and receives input from the spinal cord. Dysfunction is noted by postural instability and gait ataxia.[medexam.net]

  • Tabes Dorsalis

    Patients with more truncal instability are more likely to have midline cerebellar disease at the vermis. In this gait, the patient will have rigidity and bradykinesia.[stanfordmedicine25.stanford.edu]

  • Neonatal Hypotonia

    These babies can present with head lag, truncal instability, feeding and breathing difficulties, or they may just 'feel' different from other babies when handled.[fastbleep.com]

  • Medulloblastoma

    instability, whereas tumors in the lateral cerebellar hemispheres are more likely to cause limb clumsiness or incoordination.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] instability • Tumors in the lateral cerebellar hemispheres • Limb clumsiness • Incoordination • Cerebellar, brainstem, or cranial nerve involvement • Dizziness • Double vision[slideshare.net] […] or partial loss of vision. infants may present with irritability, anorexia, and developmental delay. cerebellar dysfunction tumors in the midline may cause gait ataxia or truncal[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Marchiafava Bignami Disease

    The patient could not walk because of a wide-based gait with truncal instability.[bmcneurol.biomedcentral.com]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    Patients with the MSA parkinsonian variant have variable parkinsonian findings, including rigidity, bradykinesia, tremor, and truncal instability, that do not respond to levodopa[emedicine.medscape.com] instability Evidence of cerebellar dysfunction: Found in MSA cerebellar variant; includes ataxia, dysmetria, dysdiadochokinesia, and incoordination; eye-movement abnormalities[emedicine.medscape.com] […] features by as long as 2 years Variable parkinsonian findings: Found in MSA parkinsonian variant; are unresponsive to levodopa; include rigidity, bradykinesia, tremor, and truncal[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Pure Autonomic Failure

  • Subacute Cerebellar Degeneration

    It is characterised by subacute onset of gait instability which may progress to a pan-cerebellar syndrome with vertigo, diplopia, dysarthria, truncal and appendicular ataxia[karger.com] Truncal instability and tremor of the body or head may occur, especially with cerebellar midline disorders. 1 Ataxia can arise from disorders that involve cerebellum, spinal[ajnr.org] instability and increasing difficulty with fine motor tasks due to incoordination.[karger.com]

  • Ataxia

    Truncal instability and tremor of the body or head may occur, especially with cerebellar midline disorders. 1 Ataxia can arise from disorders that involve cerebellum, spinal[ajnr.org] instability Dysarthria Dysdiadochokinesis Hyperreflexia Impaired smooth pursuit and horizontal gaze nystagmus, Dysphagia GGCCTG hexanucleotide repeat. affected individuals[emedicine.medscape.com] 6p12.3-q16.2 Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA35) OMIM #613908 Upper limb involvement and torticollis -- 20p13 Mutation in the TGM6 gene Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA36) OMIM #614153 Truncal[emedicine.medscape.com]
