TI  - Limb-kinetic apraxia in a patient with mild traumatic brain injury: A case
PG  - e9008
LID - 10.1097/MD.0000000000009008 [doi]
AB  - RATIONALE: We report on a patient who developed limb-kinetic apraxia (LKA) due to
      an injured corticofugal tract (CFT) from the secondary motor area following mild 
      traumatic brain injury (TBI), demonstrated on diffusion tensor tractography
      (DTT). PATIENT CONCERNS: She was struck in the right leg by a sedan at a
      crosswalk and fell to the ground. She lost consciousness and experienced
      post-traumatic amnesia for approximately ten minutes. She was obliged to wear a
      cast for a left humerus fracture for two months, and she found she could not move
      her left hand quickly with intention after removal of the cast; consequently her 
      left hand was almost non-functional. When she visited the rehabilitation
      department of a university hospital two years after the crash, she had mild
      weakness of the left upper extremity (manual muscle test: 4/5). However, the
      movements of the left hand were slow, clumsy, and mutilated when executing
      grasp-release movements of her left hand. DIAGNOSES: A 44-year-old female
      suffered head trauma resulting from a pedestrian car accident. INTERVENTIONS:
      When she extended all her left fingers, it took approximately eight seconds at
      her fastest speed to perform the pattern extending from the thumb to little
      finger sequentially. OUTCOMES: On two-year DTT, narrowing and partial tearing was
      observed in the right supplementary motor area (SMA)-CFT. LESSONS: Injury of the 
      right SMA-CFT was demonstrated in a patient with LKA in a hand following mild
      TBI. Our results stress the need to evaluate the CFTs from the secondary motor
      area for patients with unexplained motor execution problems following mild TBI.
