106 Possible Causes for Truncal Instability

  • Dermatomyositis

    Dermatomyositis Discrete red areas overlying the knuckles in a person with juvenile dermatomyositis. These are known as Gottron's papules. Specialty Rheumatology Symptoms Rash, muscle weakness, weight loss, fever[1] Complications Calcinosis, lung inflammation, heart disease[1][2] Usual onset 40s to 50s[3] Duration[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • 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]

  • 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]

  • Orthostatic Syncope

  • Hemochromatosis

    Case 3 A 63 year old male presented with a 6 month history of lower limb and body tremor, hypophonia, and subjective gait instability.[doi.org] Physical signs included bradykinesia, flexed posture, hypomimia, lower limb and truncal rest tremor, and limb rigidity. A diagnosis of IPD was made.[doi.org]

  • McLeod Neuroacanthocytosis Syndrome

    The gait of choreo-acanthocytosis patients may have a “rubber man” appearance with truncal instability and sudden, violent truncal spasms.3 Psychiatric manifestations are[japi.org] The gait of ChAc patients may have a “rubber man” appearance with truncal instability and sudden, violent trunk spasms. 9 We could not examine gait because of weakness.[dovepress.com] The gait of ChAc patients may have a "rubber man" appearance with truncal instability and sudden, violent trunk spasms [ 23 ].[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

  • Hypovolemia

    ., truncal versus isolated head injury versus isolated extremity injury); and staging the condition (i.e., hemodynamic stability versus instability versus moribund state).[trauma.org]

  • X-linked Parkinsonism-Spasticity Syndrome

    The gait of ChAc patients may have a "rubber man" appearance with truncal instability and sudden, violent trunk spasms [ 23 ].[ojrd.biomedcentral.com] […] with falls and a dystonic posture where the trunk is flexed but the neck extended. [19] Any elderly patient with truncal or neck rigidity either in the absence of or with[annalsofian.org] […] it is commonly misdiagnosed as PD. [18] The median age of onset is 55-70 years. [1] It involves the trunk and neck rather than the limbs, causing early postural and gait instability[annalsofian.org]

  • Hypotension

  • Hemiparesis

    Patients with more truncal instability are more likely to have midline cerebellar disease at the vermis.[web.archive.org] Eight of the patients “could not even sit up by themselves and had marked truncal instability, falling backward or to the affected side from a sitting position when left without[pnas.org]
