Palanesthesia

1

Rhomberg Test:
Pt falls with eyes open and with eyes closed to the right

Cerebellar Deficit
and/or
Vestibular Mechanism Deficit
(to the right)

2

Rhomberg Test:
Pt falls with eyes closed only to the right

Dorsal Column Pathology (to the right)

3

Hopping on one foot:
Pt falls with eyes open and closed to the left

Cerebellar Deficit
and/or
Vestibular Mechanism Deficit (to the left)

4

Hopping on one foot:
Pt falls with eyes closed only to the left

Dorsal Column Pathology (to the left)

5

Squatting on one foot:
Pt falls with eyes open and closed

Cerebellar Deficit
and/or
Vestibular Mechanism Deficit

6

Squatting on one foot:
Pt falls with eyes closed only

Dorsal Column Pathology

7

Finger-to-Nose test:
Pt has uncoordinated movement when attempting to touch the tip of his/her nose with the tip of finger with eyes open and closed

Dyssynergia

8

Finger-to-Nose Test:
Pt is inaccurate at measuring the distance when attempting to touch the tip of his/her nose to the tip of their finger with eyes open and closed

Dysmetria

9

Finger-to Finger:
Pt is uncoordinated when attempting to touch the tips of their index fingers together, straight out in front of them. Eyes open and eyes closed

Dyssynergia

10

Finger to finger:
Pt is inaccurate at measuring the distance between the tips of their index fingers when trying to touch them together. Eyes both open and closed

Dysmetria

11

Finger-to-Nose-to-Finger:
Pt is uncoordinated when trying to touch their nose followed by touching the doctors finger as it moves throughout space in front of them.

Dyssynergia

12

Heel to Shin:
Pt is uncoordinated when attempting to run their heel down their opposite shin from knee to ankle. Done bilaterally with eyes open and closed.

Dyssynergia

13

Heel to shin:
Pt is inaccurate in measuring the distance between their heel and the shin of their opposite leg.

Dysmetria

14

Testing for the ability to perform rapid alternating movements: Pt is unable to pat knees rapidly, and pronate/supinate the hands with eyes open and closed.

Dysdiadochokinesia

15

Holmes Rebound Phenomenon:
Pt is uncoordinated when contracting flexors in forearm against resistance by the doctor when eyes are both open and closed.

Dyssynergia

16

Holmes Rebound Phenomenon:
Pt is inaccurate at measuring the distance when resisting force from doctor against flexed forearm, and likely hits him/herself in the face when eyes are both open/closed

Dysmetria

17

Tandem Gait:
Pt uncoordinatedly walks in a line, heel to toe, while looking directly in front of them when eyes are open, and also when eyes are closed

Dyssynergia

18

Tandem Gait:
Pt is inaccurate at measuring the distance between their heel to toe when walking in a straight line with eyes both open and closed

Dysmetria

19

Joint Position Test:
Doctor holds pt finger from the sides and points the tip either up or down. Pt is unable to determine which direction the finger is pointing

unable to distinguish whether finger is pointing up or down:
possible posterior column disease (proprioception)

20

Abadie's Sign:
Pt feels no discomfort when pinching the achilles tendon

dorsal column disease
ie: tabesdorsalis

21

Pitre's Sign:
Pt feels no discomfort when doctor pinches pt testicles

Dorsal column disease
ie: tabesdorsalis

22

Biernacki Sign:
Pt feels no discomfort when pinching or striking the ulnar nerve

Dorsal column disease
ie: tabesdorsalis

23

Stereognosis:
With eyes closed, pt is unable to identify the object in their hand within a few seconds without switching hands. Both hands are checked

loss of higher cortical functions and memory

24

Barognosis: Pt is unable to assess the relative weight of similarly sized and shaped objects that have different weight.

loss of higher cortical functions and memory

25

Topognosis: When touching the pt somewhere on the skin, they are unable to point to the area that had been touched when eyes are closed

loss of higher cortical functions and memory

26

Graphognosis:
Pt is unable to identify a letter or number written on their palm when their eyes are closed

loss of higher cortical functions and memory

27

2 point discrimination:
Pt is unable to determine the distance between two separate points

loss of higher cortical functions and memory

28
