Neurological examination revealed that he was apathic and had severe dysarthria and truncal ataxia
We evaluated a 24-year-old Somalian woman who presented with transient right-sided weakness and truncal ataxia
with computed tomography (CT) of the head and CT angiography of the neck (figure).
Initial symptoms include truncal ataxia
(a loss of coordination among central muscle systems), unsteady stance and gait, tremors and slurred speech.
Two weeks later, the hypokalemia and acid-base disorder were corrected, and her neurological examination was normal apart from minimal truncal ataxia
While traveling in Connecticut, a man from North Carolina in his mid-60s was admitted to a community hospital for new onset of diplopia, vertigo, truncal ataxia
, and vomiting.
The onset of unsteadiness and truncal ataxia
is usually evident by 1 to 4 years of age.
Neuropsychiatric manifestations include symptoms of agitation, anxiety, and tremulousness followed by true resting tremor and eventual truncal ataxia
The developmental stagnation (standstill of developmental milestones in childhood) is followed by a rapid deterioration that initially progresses to severe dementia, autism, loss of purposeful use of the hands, jerky truncal ataxia
, and microcephaly.
He had dysarthria and could not walk without aid due to truncal ataxia
3[degrees]C), neck stiffness, intentional tremor of bilateral upper extremities, and truncal ataxia
On physical examination, the patient exhibited poor eye tracking, shuffling gait, and truncal ataxia
with intention tremor.
Somatic neurological examination revealed a moderate truncal ataxia
and a distal stocking type hypoalgesia.
