Movement Disorders in Women.

Semin Neurol 2017 12 21;37(6):653-660. Epub 2017 Dec 21.

Division of Movement Disorders, Department of Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

Movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease (PD), restless legs syndrome (RLS), chorea, essential tremor, and Tourette syndrome, occur in men and women of all ages. Yet, considerable sex differences in epidemiology, clinical features, and treatment exist in these disorders. In this review, we highlight key differences in the evaluation and management of women with movement disorders, addressing sex-specific complications of treatment and unique challenges surrounding the management of movement disorders during pregnancy.

Sex differences in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

Exp Neurol 2014 Sep 28;259:44-56. Epub 2014 Mar 28.

Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center, 330 S. 9th St, 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA.

Movement disorders including Parkinson's disease (PD), Huntington's disease (HD), chorea, tics, and Tourette's syndrome (TS) display sex differences in disease susceptibility, disease pathogenesis, and clinical presentation. PD is more common in males than in females. Epidemiologic studies suggest that exposure to endogenous and exogenous estrogen contributes to these sex differences. Read More

[Anaestheia for valve replacement in the second trimester of pregnancy].

Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim 2014 Jan 8;61(1):35-8. Epub 2012 Dec 8.

Servicio de Anestesiología, Hospital de Clínicas, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de la República, Montevideo, Uruguay.

Cardiac surgery in the pregnant woman gives rise to several anesthetic challenges, as the mother, but mainly the fetus, have a risk of high morbidity and mortality. In this context, the cardiopulmonary bypass is the most complex period, owing to the risks of fetal hypoxia it entails. Due to the absence, for ethical reasons, of prospective trials that provide generally accepted guidelines in intraoperative management, it means that physicians have to work based on case reports in the literature.

Movement disorders and pregnancy: a review of the literature.

Mov Disord 2010 Apr;25(6):665-71

Department of Neurology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Pregnant patients are rarely encountered in the movement disorders clinic, but they present significant dilemmas regarding treatment and counseling for neurologists. While movement disorders in pregnancy once described those disorders arising de novo during pregnancy, such as chorea gravidarum or restless leg syndrome, advancing maternal age in Western countries will likely increase the number of women in whom pregnancy complicates a pre-existing movement disorder. Physicians treating these women must be aware of the impact of the movement disorder and its treatment on fertility, pregnancy, fetal development, lactation, and infant care. Read More

The differential diagnosis of chorea.

Pract Neurol 2007 Nov;7(6):360-73

Department of Neurodegenerative Disease, UCL Institute of Neurology, London/National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, UK.

Chorea is a hyperkinetic movement disorder characterised by excessive spontaneous movements that are irregularly timed, randomly distributed and abrupt. In this article, the authors discuss the causes of chorea, particularly Huntington's disease and the genetic syndromes that may resemble it, including HDL1-3, inherited prion disease, spinocerebellar ataxias 1, 3 and 17, neuroacanthocytosis, dentatorubro-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA), brain iron accumulation disorders, Wilson's disease, benign hereditary chorea, Friedreich's ataxia and mitochondrial disease. Acquired causes of chorea include vascular disease, post-infective autoimmune central nervous system disorders (PANDAS), drugs, systemic lupus erythematosus, antiphospholipid syndrome, thyrotoxicosis, AIDS, chorea gravidarum, and polycythaemia rubra vera.

Movement disorders in pregnancy.

Semin Neurol 2007 Nov;27(5):467-75

Department of Neurology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Movement disorders are not commonly seen during pregnancy. As a result, there are few studies on whether disease manifestations are affected by the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy or on the teratogenicity of commonly used medications for movement disorders on the developing fetus. This article discusses movement disorders that are seen only during pregnancy (chorea gravidarum) or that may present during pregnancy (restless legs syndrome), the effect that pregnancy has on symptoms and treatment (in Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, tic disorders, and Wilson's disease), and the role of genetic testing for movement disorders in genetic counseling for pregnant women.

The reduced expression of the HADH2 protein causes X-linked mental retardation, choreoathetosis, and abnormal behavior.

Am J Hum Genet 2007 Feb 28;80(2):372-7. Epub 2006 Dec 28.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Technical University, Munich, Germany.

Recently, we defined a new syndromic form of X-linked mental retardation in a 4-generation family with a unique clinical phenotype characterized by mild mental retardation, choreoathetosis, and abnormal behavior (MRXS10). Linkage analysis in this family revealed a candidate region of 13.4 Mb between markers DXS1201 and DXS991 on Xp11; therefore, mutation analysis was performed by direct sequencing in most of the 135 annotated genes located in the region.

Division of Neurology, National University Hospital, Singapore.

We describe cervical dystonia occurring in a 31-year-old, previously well, primigravid, primiparous Chinese woman at 4 weeks' amenorrhea, which was ameliorated with low-dose clonazepam and disappeared completely by the end of the second trimester without recurring despite her being tapered off benzodiazepine therapy. Investigations were unremarkable for structural and biochemical causes of dystonia. Chorea, paraballismus, and restless legs syndrome are known to occur during pregnancy, attributable to high estrogen levels. Read More

Department of Psychiatry, University of Louisville School of Medicine, Kentucky 40223, USA.

Background: The recent demonstration of an etiologic role for Sydenham's chorea in obsessive-compulsive disorder has once again brought this disorder to psychiatric attention. Despite its traditional importance to psychiatry, there has not been a comprehensive review of Sydenham's chorea published for decades.

Method: I utilized the Index Medicus and its predecessors, the Quarterly Cumulative Index Medicus and the Cumulative Index Medicus, to search for every English-language article on Sydenham's chorea written during the past 115 years and then read and compiled the articles and their pertinent references.

The concurrence of pregnancy and movement disorders is an uncommon event in a general neurologic practice. Even at specialized movement disorder referral centers, there is insufficient experience to adequately guide management of pregnancy, except perhaps in the case of WD. The questions posed most urgently by patients regard the safety of medication, an issue on which there is insufficient data, and their ability to care for a child for at least the next decade, an issue that differs by disease and social situation.
