Apraxia refers to the inability to produce skilled movements as the result of brain damage, and does not affect unlearned, basic movements. Limb kinetic apraxia, ideokinetic or ideomotor, and ideational apraxia are the major subtypes. The most frequent etiology for apraxia is stroke, but it can also be observed in diseases including brain tumors, head injury, corticobasal syndrome, Alzheimer disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, and other degenerative illnesses.

Antibiotic-induced neuropathy is a rare complication of several antimicrobial agents. Symptoms are generally sensory more than motor, and are similar to those typical of other toxic neuropathies or other causes of distal symmetric polyneuropathy. They include distal paresthesias, often with burning, dysesthetic, and stocking-glove sensory loss. The neuropathy is generally reversible if the antibiotic is discontinued early, although in some cases recovery is slow and incomplete.
