Extrapiramidal syndrome

Tatiana Bolgeo
Parkinson's disease and parkinson-like syndromes are frequently associated with disautonomic disorders, particularly urinary symptoms, with various degrees of severity. Urinary symptoms can represent the debut of an extrapiramidal syndrome and in most cases are urgency and incontinence due to detrusor hyperreflexia. Urodynamic studies allow to understand the causes of urinary symptoms, and thus makes possible a rational nursing and therapeutic approach.

The Medication Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) is a single-item questionnaire which evaluates satisfaction with antipsychotic medication in schizophrenia patients. This study evaluated the reliability and validity for its use in research and clinical settings. Data pooled across treatment groups (control vs. Paliperidone ER) from a randomized 6-week study were used to conduct four psychometric assessments of the MSQ: (1) test-retest reliability, (2) convergent validity, (3) known-groups validity, and (4) minimally important difference (MID)...

A case of serious undesirable, effect arisen in a 24-year old male treated with intravenous injection of haloperidol, is presented. The patient has been affected by acute psychosis and was treated with intravenous injection of haloperidol, successively a serious uneasiness with muscular rigor, perspiration, high blood-pressure, serious shortness of breath with cyanosis appeared. This case arouses interest for an unusual symptomatology and for a difficult diagnostical framing too, because was too much serious to consider it a simple acute extrapiramidal crisis, however without all characteristics to consider it a neuroleptic malignant syndrome...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Parkinsonism is a group of neurological disorders characterized by extrapiramidal signs. Often, the differential diagnosis between parkinsonism, essential tremor and drug-induced parkinsonism is difficult. The aim of the study was to evaluate the utility of (123I)-FP-CIT SPECT in patients with movement disorders. PATIENTS AND METHOD: 52 patients were referred from the neurology department to characterize those with parkinsonism. Patients were clinically evaluated and those with Parkinson's disease were assessed using the rating scale Hoehn & Yahr and the UPDRS motor score...

Thirty adult patients with acute schizophrenia were included into six-week open-labelled, non-comparative trial of olanzapine with free dosing from 5 to 20 mg per day. For assessment of efficacy and safety of the treatment PANSS, BPRS, CGL and ESRS scales were used. The main criterion of improvement was the percentage of reduction of BPRS score to the end of the trial. More than 50% reduction was achieved in 23% of the patients, more than 20%--in 57% of the cases; 20% were non-responders (reduction less than 20%)...

Veralipride, an antidopaminergic drug commonly prescribed to counteract postmenopausal symptoms, may cause reversible parkinsonism. A 49-year-old healthy woman reported a 5 month history of progressive slowing of voluntary movements, postural changes, e.g. sit-to-stand manouevres, and gait. Clinical examination revealed moderate hypokinesia, hypomimia and plastic rigidity of the four limbs. Locomotor oscillations of the upper limbs were decreased. She had been taking 100 mg of veralipride daily to counteract postmenopausal symptoms (vasomotor flushes and irritability) for 17 months uninterruptedly...

"Acquired hepatocerebral degeneration" is a rare syndrome characterized by extrapiramidal symptomathology in patients affected by liver complaint with porta-cava shunt. Extrapiramidal symptomathology become chronical and progressive and its development is partially independent from the basic liver complaint. We report one case of "acquired hepatocerebral degeneration" whose clinical features lead us to advance a pathogenetic hypothesis on the role played by neurotransmitters in this syndrome.
