A dyskinesia characterized by an inability to maintain the fingers, toes, tongue, or other body parts in a stable position, resulting in continuous slow, sinusoidal, and flowing involuntary movements. This condition is frequently accompanied by CHOREA, where it is referred to as choreoathetosis. Athetosis may occur as a manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES or DRUG TOXICITY.

Paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis associated with frontotemporal arachnoid cyst--case report. (1/50)

A 17-year-old male presented with paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis (PKC) associated with frontotemporal arachnoid cyst. Xenon-133 single photon emission computed tomography detected a slight but equivocal decrease in regional cerebral blood flow in the vicinity of basal ganglia associated with the PKC episodes. PKC continued after surgical removal of the cyst but was well controlled by oral administration of carbamazepine. Whether the pathogenesis of symptomatic PKC was associated with the cortical lesion could not be determined in the present case.  (+info)

A new neurological syndrome with mental retardation, choreoathetosis, and abnormal behavior maps to chromosome Xp11. (2/50)

Choreoathetosis is a major clinical feature in only a small number of hereditary neurological disorders. We define a new X-linked syndrome with a unique clinical picture characterized by mild mental retardation, choreoathetosis, and abnormal behavior. We mapped the disease in a four-generation pedigree to chromosome Xp11 by linkage analysis and defined a candidate region containing a number of genes possibly involved in neuronal signaling, including a potassium channel gene and a neuronal G protein-coupled receptor.  (+info)

A second paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis locus (EKD2) mapping on 16q13-q22.1 indicates a family of genes which give rise to paroxysmal disorders on human chromosome 16. (3/50)

Paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis (PKC) is a rare paroxysmal movement disorder characterized by recurrent and brief attacks of choreiform or dystonic movements triggered or exacerbated by sudden voluntary movements. Some patients with PKC also have a history of infantile afebrile convulsions. PKC can be sporadic, or familial with autosomal dominant inheritance. PKC has been mapped to the pericentromeric region of human chromosome 16 in several Japanese families and in an African-American family, to regions which overlap by 9.8 cM (centiMorgan). Both regions overlap by 3.4 cM with a region containing a gene responsible for 'infantile convulsions and paroxysmal choreoathetosis' (ICCA). We have identified a second PKC locus (EKD2) on the long arm of chromosome 16 in a large Indian family with PKC. A maximum two-point LOD score of 3.66 (recombination fraction = 0.00, penetrance = 0.80) was obtained between PKC and D16S419. Haplotype and recombinant analysis localized EKD2 to a 15.8 cM region between D16S685 and D16S503. This region does not overlap with that identified in Japanese families, or with the ICCA locus. These results exclude one locus on chromosome 16 which causes both the ICCA and PKC syndromes; this suggests that there may be a cluster of genes on human chromosome 16 which lead to paroxysmal disorders.  (+info)

Delayed onset mixed involuntary movements after thalamic stroke: clinical, radiological and pathophysiological findings. (4/50)

Although occurrence of involuntary movements after thalamic stroke has occasionally been reported, studies using a sufficiently large number of patients and a control population are not available. Between 1995 and 1999, the author prospectively identified 35 patients with post-thalamic stroke delayed-onset involuntary movements, which included all or some degree of dystonia-athetosis-chorea-action tremor, occasionally associated with jerky, myoclonic components. A control group included 58 patients examined by the author during the same period who had lateral thalamic stroke but no involuntary movements. Demography, clinical features and imaging study results were compared. There were no differences in gender, age, risk factors, side of the lesion and follow-up periods. During the acute stage of stroke, the patients who had involuntary movements significantly more often had severe (< or = III/V) hemiparesis (50 versus 20%, P < 0.05) and severe sensory loss (in all modalities, P < 0.01) than the control group. At the time of assessment of involuntary movements, the patients with involuntary movements significantly more often had severe sensory deficit (in all modalities, P < 0.01) and severe limb ataxia (60 versus 5%, P < 0.01) than the control patients, but neither more severe motor dysfunction (7 versus 0%) nor more painful sensory symptoms (57 versus 57%). The patients with involuntary movements had a higher frequency of haemorrhagic (versus ischaemic) stroke (63 versus 31%, P < 0.05). Further analysis showed that dystonia-athetosis-chorea was closely associated with position sensory loss, whereas the tremor/myoclonic movements were related to cerebellar ataxia. Recovery of severe limb weakness seemed to augment the instability of the involuntary movements. Persistent failure of the proprioceptive sensory and cerebellar inputs in addition to successful, but unbalanced, recovery of the motor dysfunction seemed to result in a pathological motor integrative system and consequent involuntary movements in patients with relatively severe lateral-posterior thalamic strokes simultaneously damaging the lemniscal sensory pathway, the cerebellar-rubrothalamic tract and, relatively less severely, the pyramidal tract.  (+info)

Familial hyperargininaemia. (5/50)

A third case of hyperargininaemia occurring in one family was studied from birth. In cord blood serum arginine concentration was only slightly raised, but arginase activity in red blood cell haemolysates was very low. In the urine on day 2 a typical cystinuria pattern was present. Arginine concentration in serum increased to 158 mumol/100 ml on the 41st day of life. Later determinations of the arginase activity in peripheral blood showed values below the sensitivity of the method. Blood ammonia was consistently high, and cystinuria was present. The enzymatic defect was further displayed by intravenous loading tests with arginine. Serum urea values were predominantly normal or near the lower limit of normal, suggesting the presence of other metabolic pathways of urea synthesis. In urine there was no excretion of guanidinosuccinic acid, while the excretion of other monosubstituted guanidine derivatives was increased, pointing to a connexion with hyperargininaemia. Owing to parental attitude, a low protein diet (1-5 g/kg) was introduced only late. The infant developed severe mental retardation, athetosis, and spasticity.  (+info)

Persistent hemichorea associated with thyrotoxicosis. (6/50)

We describe a case with unilateral chorea associated with thyrotoxicosis. A 23-year-old female with no family history of neurological diseases acutely developed choreic movements of the left extremities during gross thyrotoxicosis. CT scan and MRI study demonstrated no abnormality. Single-photon emission CT with technetium Tc 99m-labeled hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime revealed normal cerebral perfusion. Although the choreic movements were partially improved by dopamine antagonist, they persisted for two months until successful treatment of the thyrotoxicosis finally abolished these movements. Increased sensitivity of dopamine receptors may be responsible for persistent choreic movements in thyrotoxicosis.  (+info)

DIAZEPAM: A PRELIMINARY STUDY OF ITS EFFECTS ON PATIENTS WITH ATHETOID CEREBRAL PALSY. (7/50)

Diazepam was administered to seven severely affected athetoid children for a period of two to three months to determine whether beneficial effects could be demonstrated from its use. All patients were started on a daily dose of 2.5 mg. and the dose was increased as tolerated. The patients were assessed by a neurologist, an occupational therapist, a physiotherapist and a speech therapist before and after the trial.The dose of diazepam cannot be determined in advance. The optimum dose must be established by trial in each individual patient. No beneficial effects were noted in four of these children. One of those who showed improvement became significantly worse when the drug was withdrawn and it was necessary to reinstitute the drug. The response in any individual patient is unpredictable. The most significant side effect was drowsiness.  (+info)

Follow-up study of patients with cerebral palsy. (8/50)

Of 319 patients with cerebral palsy recalled for reevaluation 15 years after the initial visit, 10 percent had died. Of the living, 55 percent had spasticity, 32 percent had athetosis, 4 percent had ataxia and 9 percent had mixed spasticity and athetosis; 38 percent had an intelligence quotient (IQ) less than 50, 24 percent between 50 and 79, and 38 percent had IQ above 80. There was a high correlation between overall functional outcome and intellectual level. Severity of physical disability, as measured by hand use, mobility and speech, also correlated with dependence, in part because increased severity of the disability was associated with decreased intellectual capacity generally.Twenty-five years after the initial visit, parental attitudes and personality intactness were evaluated (using the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory [MMPI]) and were correlated with satisfaction with status in life in 28 persons predicted to be independent on the 15-year study. Twenty (72 percent) of the 28 were satisfied with their status in life and of these, 16 were evaluated (with the MMPI) with 70 percent scoring in the normal range; 13 (65 percent) had parents with a positive attitude. Positive attitude was defined as parental feelings that the handicapped child was a worthy, valuable person, to be encouraged and assisted but not isolated from the world of nonhandicapped people. Careful serial assessment by professional teams combined with repeated long-term counseling of families can result in optimal outcome for the disability level involved, due to the primary role parents play in the development of a child's character and behavior.  (+info)

We describe clinical features of a large Polish-American kindred in which autosomal-dominant, paroxysmal dystonic choreoathetosis (PDC) was linked to a locus on chromosome 2q. Episodes of generalized dystonia and choreoathetosis involving the face and all extremities began in early childhood, lasted for 30 minutes to several hours, and occurred up to several times each week. There was no interruption of consciousness and EEGs were normal during the episodes. Paroxysmal dyskinesia occurred at rest both spontaneously and following caffeine or alcohol consumption. Neurologic examinations were normal between attacks. The cause of PDC is unknown. We deduced a model of PDC pathophysiology from analyzing neurophysiologic effects of alcohol and caffeine (which provoke attacks of PDC), the variably beneficial effects of levodopa-carbidopa, and the occurrence of dystonia and paroxysmal dyskinesia in biopterin synthesis disorders. We propose that nigrostriatal neurons in PDC patients have either marginally ...
A family is presented with paroxysmal dystonic choreoathetosis transmitted as a dominant trait over five generations. The family is unusual in the marked responsiveness of the episodes to short periods of sleep in several members, in the very variable age of onset, and in the association with prominent myokymia in some cases. These overlap features suggest a link between paroxysmal dystonic choreoathetosis and familial paroxysmal ataxia with myokymia.. ...

Cerebral palsy can be grouped into three main types which describe the disorders or movement and posture that may be experienced by a person. These are called spasticity, athetosis and ataxia.. Spasticity occurs when muscles are high in tone (tension) but weak in strength. A person experiencing spasticity may have difficulty moving their limbs and adopting stable posture.. Athetosis refers to uncontrolled movements, which are often most noticeable when a person with this type of cerebral palsy commences movement. In addition, children with athetoid cerebral palsy often have very weak muscles or feel floppy when they are carried.. Ataxia is characterised by unsteady, shaky movements or tremor. People with ataxic cerebral palsy and related disabilities have difficulty using muscles to achieve balance and coordinated movement. This is the least common type of cerebral palsy and related disabilities.. It is important to note that the movement difficulties each person has will be unique. Often a ...
From the very beginning its important to understand that all three disorders involve abnormal involuntary non-stereotypical movement. The difference consists in the muscles affected, speed and style.. Chorea involves rapid, non-stereotypical,jerky, involuntary, repetitive, dance-like movements. The moves involve the distal muscle group more than the proximal.. Unlike chorea, athetosis is a slow non-stereotypical, repetitive, involuntary, writing movement that usually affects the upper limbs.. Ballismus is also a rapid non-stereotypical, involuntary, repetitive and relatively more violent move that affects the proximal muscle group more than the distal.. Many times athetosis and chorea occur together and that is called choreoathetosis.. The involuntary movements might merge into semipurposeful or purposeful acts that could mask them.. Chorea is a progressive neurological disorder that is caused most often by Huntingtons disease. Rheumatic fever can also cause what is called the Sydenhams ...

Choreoathetosis is a condition where the brain does not produce enough cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to keep the body healthy. The condition occurs when there are problems with the production or absorption of CSF by one or both sides of the brain. This may occur due to various diseases such as:. A blockage in a blood vessel leading from the heart, which prevents it from pumping enough blood through your head and neck area.. A blockage in a vein supplying the brain, causing it to become starved for oxygen.. An infection of the lining of the brain (encephalitis).. The most common cause of choreoathetosis is cerebral palsy (CP), but other conditions can lead to its development. The condition affects approximately 1 in every 100 children under five years old.. It is estimated that up to 30% of children with CP will develop choreoathetosis.. Symptoms of choreoathetosis include:. Difficulty breathing (paroxysm) or difficulty swallowing (peristalsis).. Headache.. Other symptoms may include: dizziness, ...

Symtoms appear during the first year of infancy as delayed motor development and low muscle tone (hypotonia). The children have difficulty in coordinating movement and maintaining balance (ataxia), and some present involuntary movements (athetosis) and/or intense reflexes in the legs (spasticity). Most individuals with Salla disease have severe intellectual disability. Some have epileptic seizures during adolescence, usually in the form of absence seizures. Spasticity in the legs and arms increases with age, motor activity deteriorates and some lose the ability to walk.. ...
Athetosis is a condition in which there is a constant succession of slow, writhing, involuntary movements of flexion, extension, pronation.
Oral Medication:. Medications are usually used as the first line of treatment to relax tight or overactive muscles. While easy to use and appropriate to consider for children who need only mild reduction in muscle tone or for children with widespread spasticity, the use of oral medication for the management of abnormal tone has been somewhat disappointing in that impacts are often not ideal. For spasticity, dantrolene, baclofen, diazepam and tizanidine have been used. Other medications such as Artane have been used for dystonia and there are some preliminary reports of success with modafinil. There has been very limited success in using medications to treat dyskinesias, including dystonia, athetosis and hemiballismus.. Botulinum Toxin:.

Fahrs Syndrome is a rare, genetically dominant, inherited neurological disorder characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement, including the basal ganglia and the cerebral cortex. Symptoms of the disorder may include deterioration of motor function, dementia, seizures, headache, dysarthria (poorly articulated speech),spasticity (stiffness of the limbs) and spastic paralysis, eye impairments, and athetosis (involuntary, writhing movements). Fahrs Syndrome can also include symptoms characteristic of Parkinsons disease such as tremors, muscle rigidity, a mask-like facial appearance, shuffling gait, and a pill-rolling motion of the fingers. These symptoms generally occur later in the development of the disease. More common symptoms include dystonia (disordered muscle tone) and chorea (involuntary, rapid, jerky movements). Age of onset is typically in the 40s or 50s, although it can occur at any time in childhood or adolescence.. ...

BACKGROUND: The Dyskinesia Impairment Scale (DIS) is a new scale for measuring dystonia and choreoathetosis in dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy (CP). Previously, reliability of this scale has only been assessed for raters highly experienced in discriminating between dystonia and choreoathetosis. AIMS: The aims of this study are to examine the reliability of the DIS used by inexperienced raters, new to discriminating between dystonia and choreoathetosis and to determine the effect of clinical expertise on reliability. METHODS: Twenty-five patients (17 males; 8 females; age range 5-22 years; mean age = 13 years 6 months; SD = 5 years 4 months) with dyskinetic CP were filmed with the DIS standard video protocol. Two junior physiotherapists (PTs) and three senior PTs, all of whom were new to discriminating between dystonia and choreoathetosis, were trained in scoring the DIS. Afterward, they independently scored all patients from the video recordings using the DIS. Reliability was assessed by (1) ...

Athetoid cerebral palsy or dyskinetic cerebral palsy (sometimes abbreviated ADCP) is a type of cerebral palsy primarily associated with damage, like other forms of CP, to the basal ganglia in the form of lesions that occur during brain development due to bilirubin encephalopathy and hypoxic-ischemic brain injury. Unlike spastic or ataxic cerebral palsies, ADCP is characterized by both hypertonia and hypotonia, due to the affected individuals inability to control muscle tone. Clinical diagnosis of ADCP typically occurs within 18 months of birth and is primarily based upon motor function and neuroimaging techniques. While there are no cures for ADCP, some drug therapies as well as speech, occupational therapy, and physical therapy have shown capacity for treating the symptoms. Classification of cerebral palsy can be based on severity, topographic distribution, or motor function. Severity is typically assessed via the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) or the International ...

Lesch-Nyhan disease (LND) is an X-linked disorder of purine metabolism which results from mutation in the gene for the enzyme hypoxanthineguanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT); patients have hyperuricemia, gout, urinary tract calculi, and nephropathy which are effectively treated with allopurinol. There is also a syndrome of dystonia, chorea and athetosis, as well as involuntary self mutilative biting and aggression toward their caretakers, for which there is no treatment.. Kuvan™ is a form of tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4), and is approved to help lower the blood levels of phenylalanine in people who have phenylketonuria (PKU). LND patients have been found to have decreased BH4 in the spinal fluid and brain; BH4 is a precursor of dopamine, which has an effect on behavior. In an earlier study Dr Nyhan found that treatment of LND with 5-hydroxytryptophan and carbidopa abolished the self-injurious behavior but was uniformly transient.. This is a single site open-label protocol for eight subjects ...
8D21 Dyskinetic cerebral palsy - (extrapyramidal cerebral palsy) is characterized by impairment of voluntary movement because of the presence of interfering involuntary movements, and inappropriate co-contraction of agonist and antagonist muscles (dystonia). This group of disorders includes choreoathetotic cerebral palsy and dystonic cerebral palsy. The former is characterized by large amplitude, involuntary movements of mainly distal limbs(athetosis) with or without small amplitude, fleeting, asymmetric contractions of individual muscle groups (chorea). Dystonic cerebral palsy predominantly affects proximal trunk and limb muscles, which may show slow, persistent movements, leading to the adoption of unusual postures, such as torticollis. ...
Paroxysmal non-kinesigenic dyskinesia (PNKD) is an autosomal-dominant movement disorder characterized by attacks of dystonia, chorea and athetosis. Myofibrillogenesis regulator-1 (MR-1), the gene responsible for PNKD, is transcribed into three alternatively spliced forms: long (MR-1L), medium (MR-1M) and small (MR-1S). Two mutations, A7V and A9V, were previously discovered in the N-terminal region common to MR-1L and MR-1S. We now found a third mutation, A33P, in a new PNKD patient in the same region. Contrary to previous reports, we show here that the mutation-free MR-1M is localized in the Golgi apparatus, ER and plasma membrane, whereas both MR-1L and MR-1S isoforms are mitochondrial proteins, imported into the organelle thanks to a 39 amino acid-long, N-terminal mitochondrial targeting sequence (MTS). The MTS, which contains all three PNKD mutations, is then cleaved off the mature proteins before their insertion in the inner mitochondrial membrane. Therefore, mature MR-1S and MR-1L of PNKD ...
6-Pyruvoyltetrahydropterin synthase deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder that causes malignant hyperphenylalaninemia due to tetrahydrobiopterin deficiency. It belongs to the rare diseases. It is a recessive disorder that is accompanied by hyperphenylalaninemia. Commonly reported symptoms are initial truncal hypotonia, subsequent appendicular hypertonia, bradykinesia, cogwheel rigidity, generalized dystonia, and marked diurnal fluctuation. Other reported clinical features include difficulty in swallowing, oculogyric crises, somnolence, irritability, hyperthermia, and seizures. Chorea, athetosis, hypersalivation, rash with eczema, and sudden death have also been reported. Patients with mild phenotypes may deteriorate if given folate antagonists such as methotrexate, which can interfere with a salvage pathway through which dihydrobiopterin is converted into tetrahydrobiopterin via dihydrofolate reductase. Treatment options include substitution with neurotransmitter precursors (levodopa, ...
What is Valium? Valium is a benzodiazepine that produces calming effects. There is a range of Valium uses such as treatment of alcohol withdrawal syndrome, anxiety, muscle spasm, benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome, seizures, and trouble sleeping. Valium comes as oral administration tablets containing 2, 5, or 10 milligrams of diazepam. Apart from diazepam, a valium pill contains other inactive ingredients such as corn starch, anhydrous lactose, calcium stearate, pregelatinized starch, and FDA approved color additives. You can buy Valium online without prescription in the USA. Valium is for the management of anxiety disorder or short-term relief from anxiety symptoms. It is also helpful in the symptomatic relief of acute alcohol withdrawal symptoms such as tremor, agitation, acute delirium tremens, and hallucinations. Valium is a suitable supplement for relieving skeletal muscle spasm, athetosis, spasticity caused by upper motor neuron disorder, and stiff-man syndrome. Oral Valium pill may be
There are four types of cerebral palsy: spastic cerebral palsy, athetoid cerebral palsy, ataxic cerebral palsy and mixed cerebral palsy.. Development of the brain starts in early pregnancy and continues until about age three. Damage to the brain during this time may result in cerebral palsy. This damage interferes with messages from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain. Cerebral palsy is not a progressive condition-damage to the brain is a one-time event so it will not get worse.. All children with cerebral palsy have damage to the area of the brain that controls muscle tone. As a result, they may have increased muscle tone, reduced muscle tone, or a combination of the two (fluctuating tone).. While birth trauma can cause different kinds of cerebral palsy, the most common form of cerebral palsy associated with the lack of oxygen at birth is spastic cerebral palsy. Spastic cerebral palsy is the most common type of cerebral palsy, accounting for 80% of all cerebral palsy cases. ...
Cerebral Palsy is a term used to describe a group of chronic conditions affecting body movements and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to the brain, usually occurring during fetal development, or during infancy. It can also occur before, during or shortly following birth. Cerebral Palsy is neither progressive (it doesnt get worse with time), nor communicable (you cant catch it). It is one of the most common disabling conditions of childhood. There are 4 types of Cerebral Palsy: Spastic Cerebral Palsy characterized by stiff and difficult movement; Athetoid Cerebral Palsy characterized by involuntary and uncontrolled movement; Ataxic Cerebral Palsy characterized by a disturbed sense of balance and depth perception; and Mixed Cerebral Palsy.

Wilf had a fantastic send off and you can have a brilliant funeral.. I had a great night on Tuesday at the Pier View pub in Cowes. It was an honour to introduce the charity evening for Brainwave, a charity which supports mentally disabled children and their families. The idea for the quiz night came from Josh Barry, from East Cowes, who suffers from Athetoid Cerebral Palsy. What a great character he is. He is planning to walk up Pen y fan, in the Brecon Beacons, on May 4, to raise funds for the charity. He will be taken out of his wheelchair. There will be a team of ten who will support and balance his body weight in his quest to reach the top. Its the highest mountain in the region.. Joshs aim was to raise £1000 for the charity. He has already gone past that without going anywhere near the mountain. At the Pier View well over £100 was raised at the quiz night, thanks to the generosity of those who attended. It was a tough quiz - and I was only watching. Josh set the questions. The quiz was ...
This week we helped to publicise the miraculous story of little Lillie Scott who spoke for the first time after being told by doctors that she would never utter a single word.. The courageous three-year-old was diagnosed with quadriplegic spastic and athetoid cerebral palsy as a baby which meant she couldnt walk or swallow.. But Kimberley, Lillies mother, was dealt another blow when doctors explained that she would also never hear her little girl speak. The poorly tot spent months in hospital and at home hooked up to tubes, trapped in her own body, unable to properly communicate.. Despite their daughters devastating condition, her parents Kimberley and Ben, felt that she was straining to communicate with them - and they set about finding a way to help her speak.. Within a few months, with the help of friends and family, they had raised nearly £7000 for a Stephen Hawking like machine called an Eye Gaze to help her communicate.. Just a month later, something miraculous happened.. One ...
AIM: To identify and systematically review the psychometric properties and clinical utility of dystonia and choreoathetosis scales reported for children with cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD: Six electronic databases were searched for dystonia and choreoathetosis scales with original psychometric data for children with CP aged 0 to 18 years. RESULTS: Thirty-four papers met the inclusion criteria, which contained six scales purported to measure dystonia and/or choreoathetosis in children with CP: the Burke-Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale; Barry-Albright Dystonia Scale; Unified Dystonia Rating Scale; Movement Disorder-Childhood Rating Scale; Movement Disorder-Childhood Rating Scale 0-3 Years; and the Dyskinesia Impairment Scale ...

The type of cerebral palsy (ataxic, athetoid, mixed or spastic) are classified based on the type of movement problems and area of the body is affected.
Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects approximately two children out of every thousand born. The extent to which each child is affected varies depending on the severity of the condition, as well as the type - spastic, which is the most common and causes muscular immobility; ataxic, which causes low muscle tone and poor coordination; or athetoid, which leads to a general lack of coordination and an inability to maintain proper posture. In spite of there being several forms of this relatively common condition, there are still some general facts that are true across the board. ...

Object. The authors studied the long-term efficacy of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the posteroventral lateral globus pallidus internus up to 2 years postoperatively in patients with primary non-DYT1 generalized dystonia or choreoathetosis. The results are briefly compared with those reported for DBS in DYT1 dystonia (Oppenheim dystonia), which is caused by the DYT1 gene.. Methods. Enrollment in this prospective expanded pilot study was limited to adult patients with severely disabling, medically refractory non-DYT1 generalized dystonia or choreoathetosis. Six consecutive patients underwent follow-up examinations at defined intervals of 3 months, 1 year, and 2 years postsurgery. There were five women and one man, and their mean age at surgery was 45.5 years. Formal assessments included both the Burke-Fahn-Marsden dystonia scale and the recently developed Unified Dystonia Rating Scale. Two patients had primary generalized non-DYT1 dystonia, and four suffered from choreoathetosis secondary to ...
Lesch-Nyhan syndrome is a genetic disorder. It affects the metabolism of purines in the body. Purines are protein molecules that are important for the metabolism of RNA and DNA, which make up our genetic codes. Lesch-Nyhan syndrome is characterized by uric acid build-up, neurologic disability, and behavioral problems, including self-injury. It is a rare condition.

BACKGROUND: Paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD) is a rare movement disorder characterized by recurrent dystonic or choreoathetoid attacks triggered by sudden voluntary movements. Under the condition of psychological burden, some patients attacks may get worsened with longer duration and higher frequency. This study aimed to assess nonmotor symptoms and quality of life of patients with PKD in a large population. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional survey in 165 primary PKD patients from August 2008 to October 2016 in Rui Jin Hospital, using Symptom Check List-90-Revised (SCL-90-R), World Health Organization Quality of Life-100 (WHOQoL-100), Self-Rating Depression Scale, and Self-Rating Anxiety Scale ...
Diabetes Mellitus commonly presents as polyuria, polydipsia, fatigue and polyphagia, though patients presenting with acute complications at the time of diagnosis are not uncommon. Movement disorders like chorea, hemichorea-hemiballismus, choreoathetosis are rarely associated with metabolic derangements. Hyperglycemia-induced involuntary movements (HIIM) are rarer and less well known. In this article, we describe two diabetic patients who developed abnormal movements, one developed hemichorea-hemiballism (HCHB) and the other onedeveloped nonketotic hyperglycemic (NKH) chorea which are unusual and very rare presentations.. ...
People with cerebral palsy may present with physical and mental challenges that have implications for oral care. Before the appointment, obtain and review the patients medical history. Consultation with physicians, family, and caregivers is essential to assembling an accurate medical history. Also, determine who can legally provide informed consent for treatment.. The different TYPES OF CEREBRAL PALSY are classified according to associated motor impairments:. Spastic palsy presents with stiff or rigid muscles on one side of the body or in all four limbs, sometimes including the mouth, tongue, and pharynx. People with this form of cerebral palsy may have legs that turn inward and scissor as they walk, or arms that are flexed and positioned against their bodies. Many also have intellectual disability, seizures, and dysarthria (difficulty speaking).. Dyskinetic or athetoid palsy is characterized by hypotonia and slow, uncontrolled writhing movements. People with this type of cerebral palsy ...
