We present the case of an adult patient who had dementia and parkinsonism refractory to levodopa with frequent falls in whom typical findings of PSP were documented in MRI.

To avoid injuries due to falling, a walker or a wheelchair may be used. PSP is essentially a clinical diagnosis, however, given the bleak prognosis, Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI of the brain is performed in all patients to exclude alternative diagnoses and to look for supporting features of PSP.
Deterioration of cells in the brainstem, cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal ganglia — wupranuclear cluster of cells deep within your brain — is what causes the coordination and movement suprajuclear of progressive supranuclear palsy.

These are fine movements, that can be mistaken for nystagmusexcept that they are saccadic in nature, with no smooth phase.
Case reports of rehabilitation programs for patients with PSP generally include limb-coordination activities, tilt-board balancing, gait trainingstrength training with progressive resistive exercises and isokinetic exercises and stretching of the neck muscles. Additional signs and symptoms of progressive supranuclear palsy vary and may mimic those of Parkinson’s disease and dementia.
A poor response to levodopa along with symmetrical onset can help differentiate this disease from PD.

These tangles are often different from those seen in Alzheimer’s disease, but may be structurally similar when they occur in the cerebral cortex. Cause of supranuclear palsy Deterioration of cells in the brainstem, cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal ganglia — a cluster of cells deep within your brain — is what causes the coordination and movement issues of progressive supranuclear palsy. MRI features include Encephalomyelitis Acute disseminated Myalgic Meningoencephalitis.
Clinically it can be challenging to distinguish PSP from other entities especially when features are not typical 1, This content does not have an English version. The affected brain cells are both neurons and glial cells. Unable to process the form.
