Superficial Siderosis Symptoms

Superficial Siderosis Symptoms List

 

There are more than 30 recognized clinical Superficial Siderosis symptoms. Sensorineural Hearing Loss, Ataxia, and Myelopathy are considered to be the three classic signs.

We have used these as parent categories¹ for ease of sorting our glossary terms into sub-catergories. At least one or two of the big three signs will present in more than 50% of patients.

It is rare for one individual to be affected by every one of these conditions. A few of the following symptoms are very rare. There has been some debate about tremors. Tremors are a clinical symptom of some types of ataxia but some physicians disagree they are Superficial Sidserosis related. It has been suggested they may be associated with unrelated medical conditions.
