Chorea: Involuntary, forcible, rapid, jerky movements that may be subtle or become confluent, markedly altering normal patterns of movement. Hypotonia and pendular reflexes are often associated. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent episodes of chorea as a primary manifestation of disease are referred to as CHOREATIC DISORDERS. Chorea is also a frequent manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.Huntington Disease: A familial disorder inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and characterized by the onset of progressive CHOREA and DEMENTIA in the fourth or fifth decade of life. Common initial manifestations include paranoia; poor impulse control; DEPRESSION; HALLUCINATIONS; and DELUSIONS. Eventually intellectual impairment; loss of fine motor control; ATHETOSIS; and diffuse chorea involving axial and limb musculature develops, leading to a vegetative state within 10-15 years of disease onset. The juvenile variant has a more fulminant course including SEIZURES; ATAXIA; dementia; and chorea.

Familial essential ("benign") chorea. (1/216)

A family is described with essential non-progressive chorea occurring in an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern over four generations. A few families with an apparently similar disorder have been reported previously. This condition is characterized by early childhood onset of chorea which is not progressive and is compatible with a long life. It is not associated with dementia, seizures, rigidity, or ataxia. It is a socially embarrassing condition and may, sometimes, be associated with behavioural problems and learning difficulties. For genetic counselling, it is important to distinguish this disorder from Huntington's disease and other hereditary disorders associated with chorea.  (+info)

Rheumatic chorea in northern Australia: a clinical and epidemiological study. (2/216)

To describe the epidemiology and clinical features of Sydenham's chorea in the Aboriginal population of northern Australia a review was conducted of 158 episodes in 108 people: 106 were Aborigines, 79 were female, and the mean age was 10.9 years at first episode. Chorea occurred in 28% of cases of acute rheumatic fever, carditis occurred in 25% of episodes of chorea, and arthritis in 8%. Patients with carditis or arthritis tended to have raised acute phase reactants and streptococcal serology. Two episodes lasted at least 30 months. Mean time to first recurrence of chorea was 2.1 years compared with 1.2 years to second recurrence. Established rheumatic heart disease developed in 58% of cases and was more likely in those presenting with acute carditis, although most people who developed rheumatic heart disease did not have evidence of acute carditis with chorea. Differences in the patterns of chorea and other manifestations of acute rheumatic fever in different populations may hold clues to its pathogenesis. Long term adherence to secondary prophylaxis is crucial following all episodes of acute rheumatic fever, including chorea, to prevent recurrence.  (+info)

Anticonvulsant-induced dyskinesias: a comparison with dyskinesias induced by neuroleptics. (3/216)

Anticonvulsants cause dyskinesias more commonly than has been appreciated. Diphenylhydantoin (DPH), carbamazepine, primidone, and phenobarbitone may cause asterixis. DPH, but not other anticonvulsants, may cause orofacial dyskinesias, limb chorea, and dystonia in intoxicated patients. These dyskinesias are similar to those caused by neuroleptic drugs and may be related to dopamine antagonistic properties possessed by DPH.  (+info)

Paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis associated with frontotemporal arachnoid cyst--case report. (4/216)

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)

Intracortical inhibition of the motor cortex is normal in chorea. (5/216)

Intracortical inhibition of the motor cortex was investigated using a paired pulse magnetic stimulation method in 14 patients with chorea caused by various aetiologies (six patients with Huntington's disease, one with chorea acanthocytosis, a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus with a vascular lesion in the caudate, three with senile chorea and three with chorea of unknown aetiology). The time course and amount of inhibition was the same in the patients as in normal subjects, suggesting that the inhibitory mechanisms of the motor cortex studied with this method are intact in chorea. This is in striking contrast with the abnormal inhibition seen in patients with Parkinson's disease or focal hand dystonia, or those with a lesion in the putamen or globus pallidus. It is concluded that the pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for chorea are different from those producing other involuntary movements.  (+info)

Movement disorders caused by brain tumours. (6/216)

Movement disorders are uncommon presenting features of brain tumours. Early recognition of such lesions is important to arrest further deficit. We treated seven patients with movement disorders secondary to brain tumours over a period of seven years. Only two of these were intrinsic thalamic tumours (astrocytomas) while the rest were extrinsic tumours. The intrinsic tumours were accompanied by hemichorea. Among the extrinsic tumours, there was one pituitary macroadenoma with hemiballismus and four meningiomas with parkinsonism. Symptoms were unilateral in all patients except one with anterior third falcine meningioma who had bilateral rest tremors. There was relief in movement disorders observed after surgery. Imaging by computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging is mandatory in the evaluation of movement disorders, especially if the presentation is atypical, unilateral and/or accompanied by long tract signs.  (+info)

From off-period dystonia to peak-dose chorea. The clinical spectrum of varying subthalamic nucleus activity. (7/216)

The effect of chronic bilateral high-frequency stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) on levodopa-induced dyskinaesias was investigated in eight patients with fluctuating Parkinson's disease complicated by functionally disabling off-period dystonia. All of the patients also had severe diphasic and peak-dose chorea, so that it was possible to study the effect of high-frequency stimulation on the different types of levodopa-induced dyskinaesias. Off-period fixed dystonia was reduced by 90% and off-period pain by 66%. After acute levodopa challenge, high-frequency stimulation of the STN reduced diphasic mobile dystonia by 50% and peak-dose choreic dyskinaesias by 30%. The effect of bilateral high-frequency stimulation of the STN on the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale motor score had the same magnitude as the preoperative effect of levodopa. This allowed the levodopa dose to be reduced by 47%. The combination of reduced medication and continuous high-frequency stimulation of the STN reduced the duration of on-period diphasic and peak-dose dyskinaesias by 52% and the intensity by 68%. Acute high-frequency stimulation of the STN mimics an acute levodopa challenge, concerning both parkinsonism and dyskinaesias, and suppresses off-period dystonia. Increasing the voltage can induce repetitive dystonic dyskinaesias, mimicking diphasic levodopa-induced dyskinaesias. A further increase in voltage leads to a shift from a diphasic-pattern dystonia to a peak-dose pattern choreodystonia. Chronic high-frequency stimulation of the STN also mimics the benefit of levodopa on parkinsonism and improves all kinds of levodopa-induced dyskinaesias to varying degrees. Off-period dystonia, associated with neuronal hyperactivity in the STN is directly affected by stimulation and disappears immediately. The effect of chronic high-frequency stimulation of the STN on diphasic and peak-dose dyskinaesias is more complex and is related directly to the functional inhibition of the STN and indirectly to the replacement of the pulsatile dopaminergic stimulation by continuous functional inhibition of the STN. Chronic high-frequency stimulation of the STN allows a very gradual increase in stimulation parameters with increasing beneficial effect on parkinsonism while reducing the threshold for the elicitation of stimulation-induced dyskinaesias. In parallel with improvement of parkinsonism, the levodopa dose can be gradually decreased. As diphasic dystonic dyskinaesias are improved to a greater degree than peak-dose dyskinaesias, both direct and indirect mechanisms may be involved. Peak-dose choreatic dyskinaesias, associated with little evidence of parkinsonism and thus with low neuronal activity in the STN, are improved, mostly indirectly. Fixed off-period dystonia, mobile diphasic dystonia and peak-dose choreodystonia seem to represent a continuous clinical spectrum reflecting a continuous spectrum of underlying activity patterns of STN neurons.  (+info)

Paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis locus maps to chromosome 16p11.2-q12.1. (8/216)

Paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis (PKC), the most frequently described type of paroxysmal dyskinesia, is characterized by recurrent, brief attacks of involuntary movements induced by sudden voluntary movements. Some patients with PKC have a history of infantile afebrile convulsions with a favorable outcome. To localize the PKC locus, we performed genomewide linkage analysis on eight Japanese families with autosomal dominant PKC. Two-point linkage analysis provided a maximum LOD score of 10.27 (recombination fraction [theta] =.00; penetrance [p] =.7) at marker D16S3081, and a maximum multipoint LOD score for a subset of markers was calculated to be 11.51 (p = 0.8) at D16S3080. Haplotype analysis defined the disease locus within a region of approximately 12.4 cM between D16S3093 and D16S416. P1-derived artificial chromosome clones containing loci D16S3093 and D16S416 were mapped, by use of FISH, to 16p11.2 and 16q12.1, respectively. Thus, in the eight families studied, the chromosomal localization of the PKC critical region (PKCR) is 16p11.2-q12.1. The PKCR overlaps with a region responsible for "infantile convulsions and paroxysmal choreoathetosis" (MIM 602066), a recently recognized clinical entity with benign infantile convulsions and nonkinesigenic paroxysmal dyskinesias.  (+info)

Sydenhams chorea is a disease affecting the brain. Chorea refers to a type of abnormal movements. Sydenhams chorea happens after a childhood infection because of a problem with the bodys immune response to a common infection. Sydenhams chorea can develop up to six months after a child has had an infection. Not all children have a clear history of having had an infection by a bacteria called Streptococcus. Most people who might develop Sydenhams chorea do so before they reach eighteen years of age. It is more common in girls than boys. Sydenhams chorea is part of a wider group of inflammatory responses called rheumatic fever, that may involve other parts of the body including the skin, joints and heart.. ...

The most common acquired causes of chorea are cerebrovascular disease and, in the developing world, HIV infection-usually through its association with cryptococcal disease.[2] Sydenhams chorea occurs as a complication of streptococcal infection. Twenty percent (20%) of children and adolescents with rheumatic fever develop Sydenhams chorea as a complication. It is increasingly rare, which may be partially due to penicillin, improved social conditions, and/or a natural reduction in the bacteria ( Streptococcus ) it has stemmed from. Psychological symptoms may precede or accompany this acquired chorea and may be relapsing and remitting. The broader spectrum of paediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infection can cause chorea and are collectively referred to as PANDAS.[2] Chorea gravidarum refers to choreic symptoms that occur during pregnancy. If left untreated, the disease resolves in 30% of patients before delivery but, in the other 70%, it persists. The ...

Chorea is an involuntary, irregular, poorly patterned movement that is associated with a wide variety of illnesses. In this case, we describe a 71-year-old female who presented with choreiform movements after a change to her diabetes medication regimen. The patient was found to have non-ketotic hyperglycemia and was admitted to the hospital for insulin and rehydration. Once the patients blood glucose was controlled, her choreiform movements resolved. MRI showed no abnormal findings. In previous case reports, MRI showed hyperintense lesions in the putamen. Although the pathophysiology behind this finding is unclear, several mechanisms have been hypothesized including dopamine hypersensitivity and GABA depletion. We present this case in order to demonstrate the need to consider non-ketotic hyperglycemia in a patient with new onset choreiform movements without typical MRI findings ...

Choreoathetoid involuntary movements are rarely reported in patients with frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD), suggesting their exclusion as a supportive feature in clinical diagnostic criteria for FTLD. Here, we identified three cases of the behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) that display chorea with fused in sarcoma (FUS)-positive inclusions (FTLD-FUS) and the basophilic inclusion body disease (BIBD) subtype. We determined the behavioral and cognitive features in this group that were distinct from other FTLD-FUS cases. We also reviewed the clinical records of 72 FTLD cases, and clarified additional clinical features that are predictive of the BIBD pathology. Symptom onset in the three patients with chorea was at 44.0 years of age (±12.0 years), and occurred in the absence of a family history of dementia. The cases were consistent with a clinical form of FTD known as bvFTD, as well as reduced neurological muscle tone in addition to chorea. The three patients showed no or mild
BACKGROUND: Symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have been described in neuropsychiatric syndromes associated with streptococcal infections. It is proposed that antibodies raised against streptococcal proteins cross-react with neuronal proteins (antigens) in the brain, particularly in the basal ganglia, which is a brain region implicated in OCD pathogenesis. AIMS: To test the hypothesis that post-streptococcal autoimmunity, directed against neuronal antigens, may contribute to the pathogenesis of OCD in adults. METHOD: Ninety-six participants with OCD were tested for the presence of anti-streptolysin-O titres (ASOT) and the presence of anti-basal ganglia antibodies (ABGA) in a cross-sectional study. The ABGA were tested for with western blots using three recombinant antigens; aldolase C, enolase and pyruvate kinase. The findings were compared with those in a control group of individuals with depression (n = 33) and schizophrenia (n = 17). RESULTS: Positivity for ABGA was observed in 19/96 (19

Patient 1 was a 47-year-old woman who presented with paroxysmal abnormal movement since childhood. She was first seen in 2004. The attack was characterised by dystonic painful posture with upward or downward deviation of the eyes, head turning, shoulder abduction and extensions, lower limb dystonia, impaired speech, and occasionally stepping movements, with preserved consciousness. The attacks lasted for 1 to 2 minutes with a frequency of up to 8 times a day. Each attack was precipitated by stress or being startled, for example, being approached by a car unexpectedly when crossing the road, frightened by a cockroach, a sudden phone call, or an abrupt movement. Occasionally, the attack could occur during sleep. There was no incontinence. The patient had normal intelligence. Physical examination, biochemical tests, computed tomography of the brain, and electroencephalography were normal. The attacks were controlled with carbamazepine and frequency of attacks reduced to fewer than 3 times a day and ...

It is generally believed that treatments are available to manage chorea in Huntingtons disease (HD). However, lack of evidence prevents the establishment of treatment guidelines. The HD chorea research literature fails to address the indications for drug treatment, drug selection, drug dosing and side effect profiles, management of inadequate response to a single drug, and preferred drug when behavioral symptoms comorbid to chorea are present. Because there is lack of an evidence base to inform clinical decision-making, we surveyed an international group of experts to address these points. Survey results showed that patient stigma, physical injury, gait instability, work interference, and disturbed sleep were indications for a drug treatment trial. However, the experts did not agree on first choice of chorea drug, with the majority of experts in Europe favoring an antipsychotic drug (APD), and a near equal split in first choice between an APD and tetrabenazine (TBZ) among experts from North ...

George Huntingtons description of Huntingtons disease (HD) in 1872 (at the age of 22 years) remains the basic pillar of diagnosis: A hereditary chorea, tendency to insanity and suicide and its manifesting itself as a grave disease in adulthood.1 HD is a progressive autosomal dominant disorder, characterised by involuntary choreiform movements, psychiatric manifestations with cognitive decline and, rarely, a bradykinetic rigidity. A G8 HD probe developed in Boston for preclinical and prenatal screening of HD using molecular genetics was first acquired in South Africa in the late 1980s.2 The disease has been shown to be due to an increased number of trinucleotide repeats in the IT 15 gene on chromosome 4p 16.3. Measurement of the CAG trinucleotide expansion has been found to be a highly sensitive and specific marker for the diagnosis of HD (sensitivity 98.8%; 95% confidence interval (CI) 97.7 - 99.4%; specificity 100%, 95% CI 95.2 - 100%).3 In view of the excellent sensitivity and specificity, ...
Results For irritability, SSRI was first choice of 58%, an antipsychotic was first choice for 22%, a mood stabilizing anticonvulsant 14%, and benzodiazepine 2%. For perseverative behaviors, SSRI was first choice of 75%, an antipsychotic choice of 4%, a mood stabilizing anticonvulsant choice of 6%, and clomipramine 2%. The remaining 13% chose to qualify the response to include 2 first choices. For chorea, an antipsychotic was first choice for 56%, tetrabenazine 15%, amantadine 6%, and benzodiazepines 4%. The remaining 13% chose to qualify the response to include 2 first choices. Drug choice for use as adjunctive therapy was widely variable. ...
To the editor: Increasingly frequent reports have attributed neurologic complications other than encephalopathy to cimetidine toxicity. I wish to report a case of chorea apparently caused by cimetidine.. A 72-year-old woman was admitted to the Neurological Institute of New York after several weeks of abnormal movements. The history showed chronic obstructive pulmonic disease treated with theophylline, 800 mg daily, and terbutaline, 15 mg daily in divided doses. Haloperidol had been prescribed for an affective disorder, but symptoms had resolved and therapy had been terminated 18 months earlier. Barium swallow had shown a duodenal ulcer 11 months previously; therapy included cimetidine, ...

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 ...
Children are at risk of developing an involuntary movement disorder after streptococcal throat infections. Not all children are affected and the severity is individually variable. Affected children have alteration in their behaviour and mood and can become quite compromised in their activities of daily living. The condition is believed to be related to the body having an over efficient immune response to the infection and some of the antibodies made in response to the infection also attack centres in the brain controlling movement and mood. Treating these children with immunoglobulins, which mop up the antibodies may reverse or improve affected children. This study hopes to clarify this ...

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.. ...

Participants were enrolled in an interventional clinical protocol (NCT02014883) at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital promoted by INSERM and approved by the local ethical committee. All participants and/or their legal guardians signed a written informed consent before participating in the study. Four children and four adults were enrolled with GLUT1-DS as defined by low cerebrospinal fluid to blood glucose ratio and a SLC2A1 missense mutation predicted to be pathogenic by prediction software programs. Patients had a chronic history of non-epileptic paroxysmal motor disorders, especially paroxysmal exercise-induced dyskinesia, non-kinesigenic dyskinesia, limb weakness, headache, drowsiness and dysphoria. Three patients also presented a mild cognitive deficit. All patients were on a normal diet prior to their enrolment as either they objected to or did not tolerate ketogenic diets. The study was divided into three phases of 2 months each (baseline, treatment and withdrawal). A trained dietician ...
Our study showed that patients with PD improved on neuropsychological functions including planning ability on TOH. The improvement was evident on the number of moves on 5-disc problem as well as time taken on both three and five discs of TOH. TOH is known to be sensitive to procedural memory and requires the integrity of the functions of basal ganglia.[24] The reduction in time taken and the number of moves on 3- and 5-disc problem on TOH suggests that Tai chi might have the potential to improve executive functions as well as the fronto-subcortical structures mediating these functions. The improvement in executive functions in our study is consistent with the previous studies.[10],[11] Our results revealed additional improvement on verbal learning and memory on word list (WMS-III--immediate recall, total recall, and delayed recall). The improvement on encoding as well as recall has not been previously demonstrated after Tai chi and Qigong training in PD. Memory function is not a unitary process. ...
Huntingtons disease (HD) is caused by the mutation of a gene inducing expansion of CAG triplets on the huntingtin (htt) protein (The Huntingtons Disease Collaborative Research Group, 1993). It is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by a progression of motor symptoms manifesting as chorea in early stages and as akinesia in later stages. Symptoms also include depression, anxiety, irritable or aggressive behavior, and apathy (Bird et al., 1980; Bonelli and Hofmann, 2007). Tetrabenazine (TBZ), a monoamine-depleting agent is the only drug providing significant benefit in the treatment of chorea associated with HD.. The most obvious neuropathological changes are found in the striatum showing loss of medium-sized spiny neurons (MSSNs) (Vonsattel et al., 1985). MSSNs expressing enkephalin are preferentially lost in postmortem brains of fully symptomatic patients, but also in early symptomatic and presymptomatic brains whereas MSSNs expressing substance P are relatively spared (Reiner et al., ...

n immune-mediated etiology of SC and the DA hypothesis has been highly speculative, and based on retrospective case studies reporting correlations between certain factors and SC. A recent study conducted in 2012 worked to establish a causal link between the presence of ABGA in patients with SC and the onset of the disorder20. This study was necessary to prove that the antibodies were a causative agent of SC, as opposed to a by-product of an inflamed basal ganglia. To do this, antibodies were extracted from the serum of SC patients and stereotaxically injected into the basal ganglia of mice (Fig. 4). Changes in motor behaviour and neurotransmitter systems were then monitored, but no changes were detected. This lack of positive results indicated that small concentrations of these ABGA were not sufficient to elicit the symptoms/features of SC. Two possible explanations exist for these results. Firstly, other factors could be involved in the onset of SC, and secondly onset might only occur after ...

Genetic testing will be one of the ways in which insurance companies try to determine whether someone is destined to develop Huntingtons.. Dr Philippa Whitford (Central Ayrshire) (SNP). Does my hon. Friend feel that we will require legislation? Here, people with Huntingtons chorea are picked out because of a family history, but as we move into the era of genomics, if we allow insurance companies to force Huntingtons people to take genetics tests, we could all be forced to take genomic tests to see our risk of heart attack, cancer and so on. We need to deal with this now.. Gavin Newlands. I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend. This is only the tip of the iceberg. We will have to come back to the issue under discussion and address the much wider issue in years to come..

The neurodegenerative disorder Huntingtons disease (HD) is typically characterized by extensive loss of striatal neurons and the midlife onset of debilitating and progressive chorea, dementia, and psychological disturbance. HD is caused by a CAG repeat expansion in the Huntingtin (HTT) gene, translating to an elongated glutamine tract in the huntingtin protein. The pathogenic mechanism resulting in cell dysfunction and death beyond the causative mutation is not well defined. To further delineate the early molecular events in HD, we performed RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) on striatal tissue from a cohort of 5-y-old OVT73-line sheep expressing a human CAG-expansion HTT cDNA transgene ...

Huntington s chorea is a dominantly untreatable, progressive and deadly disease. The patient suffers utmost hurt, nevertheless when diagnosed the bulk of the load besides to the relations who have to get by with the mental and physical impairment of the patients whilst gaining that they and their kids are at hazard. ( 18 ) The nature of this disease is there are variable ages of oncoming therefore those at hazard will non cognize their familial province until after they have completed their household or the non- bearers have to wait until late centers ages before they can be free of any hazard of developing the disease. ( 19 ). So if anyone wants to happen out whether they are at hazard they need to acquire a Deoxyribonucleic acid trial done which in this instance is besides known as a prognostic trial but this trial causes some ethical jobs. First does the trial have a high per centum truth and is at that place any inaccuracy related to the trial. In this instance this trial is used by the ...
Over the past 3 years, there has been great interest in transplantation therapy in the treatment of Parkinsons disease. Following the impressive results reported by Madrazo in the spring of 1987, more than 350 cases of adrenal medullary implantation have been performed worldwide. There has been a significant reduction in "off" time and an increase in "on" time without chorea in 40% of patients having this procedure. The duration of effect is 1 year in half of these cases, with the other half (20% of all patients) still demonstrating significant improvement 3 years after the procedure. The mechanism of the bilateral beneficial improvement is unknown. The survival of adrenal medullary tissue has not been demonstrated at autopsy. It is thought that the mechanism of improvement involves either regenerative sprouting of the remaining dopamine producing neurons as a consequence of the release of neurotrophic factors or an interruption of the striatal pallidal output inhibitory influence of the basal ...

Hospital time matches nothing in the outside world. Every minute passes with excruciating slowness. In the four hours that it took for the nurses and doctor to run tests and process everything for Mom, shed shrunk into a withered prune. The skin on her hands creased into ridges. The pads of her fingertips changed from smooth to wrinkled surfaces. Her hands lost all heat, and when I held one I thought, "Shes turning to ice." Moms legs kicked about in anxiety as her chorea surfaced with the stress of the situation. I watched the skin on her shins pull tight over her bones while her calves puckered. Whatever fluid her body contained pooled toward her center, leaving her extremities cold as death. Eventually, an IV relieved Moms dehydration. By 2 PM, her hands and feet thawed to room temperature. Her sunken cheeks still looked skeletal, but some color splashed across her face. By the second IV and round of antibiotics, Mom could eat a few spoons of the pureed pork chops and mashed potatoes the ...
Last night Reagan fell asleep and we put her in her bed. She only made it til 3am or so, when I saw her kicking around. I moved her to her chair (afraid she might get nauseous laying down) and gave her a dose of Lortab hoping get her back to sleep. I think she slept for another hour or two but then I woke up to the sound of nausea! I rushed in and she had already had a small throw up. Unfortunately that little one was followed by many more big ones as the day went on. She was very tense and having lots of chorea, but not really fussy and no tears to speak of. She actually had a good session of vision therapy and her therapist brought a really cool disco ball toy that Reagan was activating via switch. As the day went on she proceeded to get more and more nauseous. The throw ups tonight were some of the worst Ive ever seen...ever! It was such a large volume...where was it all coming from?? Ive been thinking about this a lot lately with regard to Reagan. I want to cry Uncle!!! (And often I just ...
Sydenham - was born at Wynford Eagle in Dorset. His book, unlike Auenbruggers Inventum Novum, did not wait 47 years for recognition. The classic temperature patterns of many diseases, such as typhoid, were depicted. It became clear to knowledgeable physicians that experimental methods could be applied to the study of disease and therapeutics as well as to the study of the healthy state. Boerhaave exemplified the best up until the time of the French; as noted previously, he made rounds with his students on 12 beds each day, questioning and inspecting the patient, examining the urine and feces, and going to the autopsy table if the patient died. Hebra published a book in that aspired to the classification of skin diseases on the basis of pathologic anatomy; for the first time pathology was linked to dermatologic lesions. Many authors previously had recorded the results of autopsy findings in an attempt to explain the cause of death. Hales was led to his experiments by his interest in the forces ...
Late last night, or early this morning, an incident occurred at Lower Norwood which points, it is feared, to a serious crime. Mr. Jonas Oldacre is a well-known resident of that suburb, where he has carried on his business as a builder for many years. Mr. Oldacre is a bachelor, fifty-two years of age, and lives in Deep Dene House, at the Sydenham end of the road of that name. He has had the reputation of being a man of eccentric habits, secretive and retiring. For some years he has practically withdrawn from the business, in which he is said to have amassed considerable wealth. A small timber-yard still exists, however, at the back of the house, and last night, about twelve oclock, an alarm was given that one of the stacks was on fire. The engines were soon upon the spot, but the dry wood burned with great fury, and it was impossible to arrest the conflagration until the stack had been entirely consumed. Up to this point the incident bore the appearance of an ordinary accident, but fresh ...

We report here that 42% of patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (a consecutive cohort of children and adolescents attending a specialist clinic) had circulating anti-basal antibodies. This is a highly significant finding, as these antibodies are uncommonly found in the control groups studied. In contrast, patients with the neurological disorder most robustly established as a post-streptococcal autoimmune disorder - Sydenhams chorea - almost always test positive for these antibodies using the same assays (Church et al, 2002). These findings demonstrate that a subgroup of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder have antibody findings similar to those seen in Sydenhams chorea, suggesting that autoimmunity many have a role in the genesis and/or maintenance of the former disorder. Only a few other studies have looked for anti-neuronal antibodies in obsessive-compulsive disorder. An indirect immunofluorescence method has been used in one small study of idiopathic disease, and did ...

A phase 3 clinical trial of tetrabenazine showed the drug to be effective in the treatment of chorea associated with Huntingtons disease (HD). The results of the study presented at the 129th annual meeting of the American Neurological Association validated the treatment success that has been seen in Europe, Australia, and Canada. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 84 patients with HD, patients received either tetrabenazine or a placebo for 12 weeks. The objective was to change baseline scores on the Unified Huntingtons Disease Rating Scale, which is used to assess clinical elements. After 12 weeks, the chorea score for the tetrabenazine group had decreased by 5 points, whereas the scores for the placebo group had decreased by only 1.5 points. Tetrabenazine also was proven to be superior to placebo on the Clinical Global Impression Scale, which assesses severity of illness and change in clinical condition. The drugs manufacturer, Prestwick Pharmaceuticals Inc, plans to ...
Hemichorea developed several weeks after evacuation of a traumatic extradural haematoma. The abnormal movements were confined to arm and leg on the side opposite the surgery. No other causes of chorea were found. The connection between the extradural haematoma and the late onset hemichorea is not well understood; mechanical pressure on basal ganglia structures, vascular disturbances of the anterior choroidal artery as well as biochemical alterations are all possible mechanisms.. ...
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 ...

Paul J. Myers, DO, et al. Sydenham Chorea (SC) is an acute rheumatic fever complication. SC is the most common acquired childhood chorea, usually affecting children five to fifteen years of age.1 It occurs following an untreated group A streptococcal infection and a latent period of one to six months.1,2 Despite rheumatic fever diminishing, 18% to 36% of acute rheumatic fever patients develop SC.3 Full recovery often takes several months; some patients suffer permanent neurologic sequelae.1. An 11-year old male presented to the Emergency Department with two days of uncontrolled body twitching. The movements affected his right arm and leg, with occasional lip twitches; he experienced intermittent confusion and hyperactivity. The patient denied recent illness, but recalled a fever with headache and vomiting several months prior. Besides the above findings, his physical examination was normal.. ...
Between 1981-1990, 1991-2000, 2001-2012; 573, 1677, 1688 patients had been followed up, respectively. In these three periods of follow up time carditis was observed in (51, 62 and 71% of patients), arthritis in (67, 68, 56% of patients), Sydenhams chorea in (13, 13 and 13% of patients) and erythema marginatum in (2, 0.1, 1% of patients), respectively. Between 1981-1990, 1991-2000 and 2001-2012 the incidence of ARF was detected 1.1/100.000, 2.6/100.000 and 2.3/100.000, respectively ...
The authors discuss the importance of neurological complications of rheumatic disease, which differ from those of Sydenhams chorea: encephalitis; acute cerebral circulatory insufficiency of cardiovascular basis; thrombosis and cerebral haemorrhage; cerebral emboli; and vasculitis. The case of a 13 year old boy who presented with an acute cerebral episode during an active phase of rheumatic fever is described. The E.E.G. showed a right hemisphere disturbance with a slight involvement of the controlateral hemisphere. The cardiac evidence was indicative of a rheumatic carditis. The clinical progress and EEG were rapidly favourable. The possible pathogenetic hypotheses of this case are taken into consideration, and the authors suggest that one must suspect a rheumatic etiology when an acute cerebral syndrome is established in a child or a young adult with current or previous rheumatic fever.

Western Suffolk Psychological Services, Inc., Huntington, New York. Over the last ten years, there has appeared a mounting body of evidence that suggests there is a small subgroup of individuals whose childhood onset Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders may have been triggered by streptococcal throat infections. This association of an infectious cause with a neurobiological disorder may also be true for tic disorders, such as Tourettes Disorder, Trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling), and possibly Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.. These conclusions were drawn from research conducted by Drs. Susan Swedo, Judith Rappaport, and their associates at The National Institute of Mental Health. During the late 1980s, they observed that children with Sydenhams Chorea, the neurobiological manifestation that follows bouts of Rheumatic Fever, had an unusually high percentage of OCD symptoms, including both obsessions and compulsions. Rheumatic Fever is caused by Group A Beta hemolytic streptococcal ...
Here we describe a patient with a rare movement disorder, hemichorea-hemiballismus, which is described as a complication of non-ketotic hyperglycaemia. This complication may be seen in individuals with poorly controlled long-standing diabetes mellitus. Proper diagnosis is established with CT and MRI of the brain, which typically show classic findings in the basal ganglia. Treatment focuses on improvement of glycaemic control and usually results in rapid resolution of the movement disorder. Nevertheless, recurrent episodes of hemichorea-hemiballismus, and even more ominous complications such as ischaemic stroke may occur. ...
My grandpa who just passed away suffered from St. Vitis Dance as a child. I believe it is the same as chorea or a form of it. I have never understood it much. It went away and reoccurred just about 2 years ago. That just one of many of the factors in his end. In the end he couldnt swallow at all. I never understood the disease much. I am glad to see you have a medical knowledge of it. Hang in there Leanne. It is possible for him to maintain the tremors and there are things that can be done. My grandpa overcame it as a child when very little was known about it at all and lived a long healthy life until the end when it reoccured. I hope all the rest of your family is doing well..

Neurologists are familiar with tetrabenazine, the best treatment for chorea. And Star Trek fans are familiar with the heavy hydrogen atom, deuterium. Put the two together and, voila, you get deutetrabenazine (SD809). The heavy hydrogen of deuterium makes deutetrabenazine a more stable drug. This should make it last longer in the body, and also cause less side effects. Considering that the adverse effects of tetrabenazine include depression and parkinsonism, this is not an insignificant advantage (pardon the double negative…I couldnt help it).. How well does deutetrabenazine translate to clinical practice? Sufficiently well enough it seems, going by the trial published in JAMA Neurology titled Effect of Deutetrabenazine on Chorea Among Patients With Huntington Disease. The authors compared the drug to placebo and showed that deutetrabenazine effectively improved chorea at 12 weeks. It is not surprising that the trial compared deutetrabenazine to placebo rather than the existing alternative; ...

AU - Usunoff, K.G.. AU - Marani, Enrico. PY - 2005/5/14. Y1 - 2005/5/14. N2 - Hemichorea/ballism is a rare neurological disorder but the crucial involvement of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) in its pathophysiology is appreciated since decades. The idiopathic Parkinsons disease is a common neurodegenerative disorder but the key role of the STN in the pathophysiological origin of the parkinsonian state became only recently evident. The STN was believed to exert an inhibitory, probably - GABA-mediated, effect on its projection nuclei, and this belief is one of the major reasons to overlook the involvement of the STN in the parkinsonian pathophysiology. It is now firmly established that the STN projection neurons are glutamatergic, excitatory, and heavily innervate by widely branching axons of the substantia ...

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) ...
EFFECTS OF CANNABIDIOL IN HUNTINGTONS DISEASE Neurology 36 (Suppl 1) April 1986 p. 342 Reuven Sandyk, Paul Consroe, Lawrence Z. Stern, and Stuart R. Snider, Tucson, AZ. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a major nonpsychoactive cannabinoid of marijuana. Based on reports indicating possible efficacy of CBD in dystonic movements (Neurology 1984; 34 [Suppl 1]: 147 and 1985; 35 [Suppl 1]: 201), we tried CBD in three patients with Huntingtons disease (HD). The patients;, aged 30 to 56, had HD of 7 to 12 years duration. Their condition has been slowly progressive and unresponsive to prior therapy with neuroleptics. Orally administered CBD was initiated at 300 mg/d and increased 1 week later to 600 mg/d for the next 3 weeks. Mild improvement ( 5 to 15%) in the choreic movements was documented using the tongueprotrusion test (Neurology [Minneap} 1972; 22: 929-33) and a chorea severity evaluation scale (Br J Clin Pharmacol 1981; 11: 129-51) after the first week. Further improvement (20 to 40%) was noticed after the ...

The prevalence of heterotopic pregnancy is estimated at 0.6‑2.5:10,000 pregnancies.[3] There is a significant increase in the incidence of heterotopic pregnancy in women undergoing ovulation induction. An even greater incidence of heterotopic pregnancy is reported in pregnancies following assisted reproduction techniques such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), with an estimated incidence at between 1 and 3 in 100 pregnancies.[5] If there is embryo transfer of more than 4 embryos, the risk has been quoted as 1 in 45.[5] In natural conceptions, the incidence of heterotopic pregnancy has been estimated to be 1 in 30 000 pregnancies.[5] ...
Nutrition during pregnancy is important to ensure healthy growth of the fetus.[75] Nutrition during pregnancy is different from the non-pregnant state.[75] There are increased energy requirements and specific micronutrient requirements.[75] Women benefit from education to encourage a balanced energy and protein intake during pregnancy.[76] Some women may need professional medical advice if their diet is affected by medical conditions, food allergies, or specific religious/ ethical beliefs.[77]. Adequate periconceptional (time before and right after conception) folic acid (also called folate or Vitamin B9) intake has been shown to decrease the risk of fetal neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.[78] The neural tube develops during the first 28 days of pregnancy, a urine pregnancy test is not usually positive until 14 days post-conception, explaining the necessity to guarantee adequate folate intake before conception.[63][79] Folate is abundant in green leafy vegetables, legumes, and ...
... , also known as tubal pregnancy, is a complication of pregnancy in which the embryo attaches outside the uterus.[4] Signs and symptoms classically include abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding.[1] Less than 50 percent of affected women have both of these symptoms.[1] The pain may be described as sharp, dull, or crampy.[1] Pain may also spread to the shoulder if bleeding into the abdomen has occurred.[1] Severe bleeding may result in a fast heart rate, fainting, or shock.[4][1] With very rare exceptions the fetus is unable to survive.[5]. Risk factors for ectopic pregnancy include: pelvic inflammatory disease, often due to Chlamydia infection, tobacco smoking, prior tubal surgery, a history of infertility, and the use of assisted reproductive technology.[2] Those who have previously had an ectopic pregnancy are at much higher risk of having another one.[2] Most ectopic pregnancies (90%) occur in the Fallopian tube which are known as tubal pregnancies.[2] Implantation can also occur ...
A postpartum (or postnatal) period begins immediately after the birth of a child as the mother's body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state.[1] The terms puerperium or puerperal period, or immediate postpartum period are commonly used to refer to the first six weeks following childbirth.[2] The World Health Organization (WHO) describes the postnatal period as the most critical and yet the most neglected phase in the lives of mothers and babies; most maternal and newborn deaths occur during the postnatal period.[3] In scientific literature, the term is commonly abbreviated to Px, where x is a number; for example, "day P5" should be read as "the fifth day after birth". This is not to be confused with the medical nomenclature that uses G P to stand for number and outcomes of pregnancy (gravidity and parity). A woman giving birth in a hospital may leave as soon as she is medically stable, which can be as early as a few hours postpartum, though the average for a ...
... , also known as antenatal care, is a type of preventive healthcare. Its goal is to provide regular check-ups that allow doctors or midwives to treat and prevent potential health problems throughout the course of the pregnancy and to promote healthy lifestyles that benefit both mother and child.[1][2] During check-ups, pregnant women receive medical information over maternal physiological changes in pregnancy, biological changes, and prenatal nutrition including prenatal vitamins. Recommendations on management and healthy lifestyle changes are also made during regular check-ups. The availability of routine prenatal care, including prenatal screening and diagnosis, has played a part in reducing the frequency of maternal death, miscarriages, birth defects, low birth weight, neonatal infections and other preventable health problems. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that in 2015 around 830 women died every day from problems in pregnancy and childbirth.[3] Only 5 lived in ...
Although much research into mechanism of pre-eclampsia has taken place, its exact pathogenesis remains uncertain. Pre-eclampsia is thought to result from an abnormal placenta, the removal of which ends the disease in most cases.[2] During normal pregnancy, the placenta vascularizes to allow for the exchange of water, gases, and solutes, including nutrients and wastes, between maternal and fetal circulations.[15] Abnormal development of the placenta leads to poor placental perfusion. The placenta of women with pre-eclampsia is abnormal and characterized by poor trophoblastic invasion.[15] It is thought that this results in oxidative stress, hypoxia, and the release of factors that promote endothelial dysfunction, inflammation, and other possible reactions.[1][15][25] The clinical manifestations of pre-eclampsia are associated with general endothelial dysfunction, including vasoconstriction and end-organ ischemia.[15] Implicit in this generalized endothelial dysfunction may be an imbalance of ...
In breastfeeding women, low milk supply, also known as lactation insufficiency, insufficient milk syndrome, agalactia, agalactorrhea, hypogalactia or hypogalactorrhea, is the production of breast milk in daily volumes that do not fully meet the nutritional needs of her infant. Breast milk supply augments in response to the baby's demand for milk, and decreases when milk is allowed to remain in the breasts.[1] Low milk supply is usually caused by allowing milk to remain in the breasts for long periods of time, or insufficiently draining the breasts during feeds. It is usually preventable, unless caused by medical conditions that have been estimated to affect up to five percent of women.[2] Several common misconceptions often lead mothers to believe they have insufficient milk when they are in fact producing enough.[3] Actual low milk supply is likely if the baby is latching and swallowing well at the breast, is nevertheless not growing well or is showing signs of dehydration or malnutrition, and ...
The precise mechanisms underlying gestational diabetes remain unknown. The hallmark of GDM is increased insulin resistance. Pregnancy hormones and other factors are thought to interfere with the action of insulin as it binds to the insulin receptor. The interference probably occurs at the level of the cell signaling pathway beyond the insulin receptor.[19] Since insulin promotes the entry of glucose into most cells, insulin resistance prevents glucose from entering the cells properly. As a result, glucose remains in the bloodstream, where glucose levels rise. More insulin is needed to overcome this resistance; about 1.5-2.5 times more insulin is produced than in a normal pregnancy.[19] Insulin resistance is a normal phenomenon emerging in the second trimester of pregnancy, which in cases of GDM progresses thereafter to levels seen in a non-pregnant person with type 2 diabetes. It is thought to secure glucose supply to the growing fetus. Women with GDM have an insulin resistance that they cannot ...
Evidence-based reviews found that the most effective therapy for melasma includes a combination of topical agents.[6][5] Triple combination creams formulated with hydroquinone, tretinoin and a steroid component have shown to be more effective than dual combination therapy or hydroquinone alone.[12] More recently, a systematic review found that oral medications also have a role in melasma treatment, and have been shown to be efficacious with a minimal number and severity of adverse events. Oral medications and dietary supplements employed in the treatment of melasma include tranexamic acid, Polypodium leucotomos extract, beta‐carotenoid, melatonin, and procyanidin.[13] Oral medication procyanidin plus vitamins A, C, and E shows promise as safe and effective for epidermal melasma. In an 8-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in 56 Filipino women, treatment was associated with significant improvements in the left and right malar regions, and was safe and well tolerated.[14] ...
... (genotype 1 and, to a lesser extent genotype 2) is endemic and can cause outbreaks in Southeast Asia, northern and central Africa, India, and Central America.[5][45] It is spread mainly by the fecal-oral route due to contamination of water supplies or food; direct person-to-person transmission is uncommon.[5][19] In contrast to genotypes 1 and 2, genotypes 3 and 4 cause sporadic cases thought to be contracted zoonotically, from direct contact with animals or indirectly from contaminated water or undercooked meat.[5][46] Outbreaks of epidemic hepatitis E most commonly occur after heavy rainfalls, especially monsoons because of their disruption of water supplies; heavy flooding can causes sewage to contaminate water supplies.[47][48]:78 The World Health Organization recommendation for chlorine on HEV inactivation, a free chlorine residual of 0.5 mg/L (6.7×10−5 oz/US gal) for 30 min (pH, ,8.0)[49] Major outbreaks have occurred in New Delhi, India (30,000 cases in 1955-1956),[50] ...
... are health problems that are related to pregnancy. Complications that occur primarily during childbirth are termed obstetric labor complications, and problems that occur primarily after childbirth are termed puerperal disorders. Severe complications of pregnancy, childbirth, and the puerperium are present in 1.6% of mothers in the US[1] and in 1.5% of mothers in Canada.[2] In the immediate postpartum period (puerperium), 87% to 94% of pregnant individuals report at least one health problem.[3][4] Long-term health problems (persisting after six months postpartum) are reported by 31% of pregnant individuals.[5] In 2016, complications of pregnancy, childbirth, and the puerperium resulted globally in 230,600 deaths, down from 377,000 deaths in 1990. The most common causes of maternal mortality are maternal bleeding, maternal sepsis and other infections, hypertensive diseases of pregnancy, obstructed labor, and pregnancy with abortive outcome, which includes miscarriage, ...
... are named after the English doctor who first described them. In 1872, John Braxton Hicks investigated the later stages of pregnancy and noted that many women felt contractions without being near birth.[4] This process was usually painless but caused women confusion as to whether or not they were going into actual labor. It has since been found that Braxton Hicks contractions are much less noticeable during exercise, whereas real contractions are noticeable during exercise.[citation needed]. ...

In 1843, Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. published The Contagiousness of Puerperal Fever[28] and controversially concluded that puerperal fever was frequently carried from patient to patient by physicians and nurses; he suggested that clean clothing and avoidance of autopsies by those aiding birth would prevent the spread of puerperal fever.[29] Holmes quoted Dr. James Blundell as stating, "... in my own family, I had rather that those I esteemed the most should be delivered unaided, in a stable, by the mangerside, than that they should receive the best help, in the fairest apartment, but exposed to the vapors of this pitiless disease."[29] Holmes' conclusions were ridiculed by many contemporaries, including Charles Delucena Meigs, a well-known obstetrician, who stated, "Doctors are gentlemen, and gentlemen's hands are clean."[30] Richard Gordon states that Holmes' exhortations "outraged obstetricians, particularly in Philadelphia".[31] In those days, "surgeons operated in blood-stiffened frock coats ...
... (PUPPP), known in United Kingdom as polymorphic eruption of pregnancy (PEP),[1] is a chronic hives-like rash that strikes some women during pregnancy. Although extremely annoying for its sufferers (because of the itch), it presents no long-term risk for either the mother or unborn child. PUPPP frequently begins on the abdomen and spreads to the legs, feet, arms, chest, and neck.[2] Papules and plaques usually start appearing on the abdomen (although not on the umbilicus/bellybutton) and often spreads to the legs, chest, underarms, etc. The face is usually also spared and does not seem to become affected. Skin distension (stretching) is a common factor in PUPPP, which is more common in mothers with large fundal measurements and/or those who are carrying large babies, twins, and triplets. The papules and plaques often first appear within stretch marks. Certain studies reveal that this condition is more frequent in women carrying boys, although ...
