In Reply to: extrapyramidal disorder posted by kingsland on January 22, 1998 at 12:44:17:
: What is extrapyramidal disorder? I have searched the Web and found references to it as a rare disorder, but no links for patient support groups and no specific information for this condition. Is it perhaps an umbrella title for a wide range of conditions? I would very much like to get in touch with other sufferers. Thanks for your help
You are correct in assuming that extrapyramidal disorder is an umbrella term for a range of disorders, however this is by no means a rare type of disorder. This refers to diseases which do not involve the pyramidal tract which is the nerve projection frequently involved in strokes which cause paralysis on one side of the body.
The most common extrapyramidal disorder is Parkinson
