104 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Jerks, Bilateral Babinski's Reflex

Did you mean: Absent Ankle, Jerks, Bilateral Babinski's Reflex

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Lower motor neuron disease causes weakness, loss of muscle ("atrophy") and muscle twitching ("fasciculations").[] Bilateral upper and lower limb weakness with increased bilateral upper limb reflexes and Babinski reflexes were found.[] Apraxia (Medical Encyclopedia) Hand or foot spasms (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle atrophy (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle function loss (Medical Encyclopedia) Muscle twitching[]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    A 48-year-old man with syncope and diffuse muscle twitches. Neurohospitalist. 2012 Jul; 2(3):107-11. PMID: 23983873; PMCID: PMC3726089.[] Neurologic examination demonstrated a broad-based, spastic gait, brisk muscle stretch reflexes, and bilateral Babinski signs.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    twitching for 3 years.[] These persistent muscle twitches are generally not painful, but can be annoying or interfere with sleep.[] Symptoms of ALS include progressive muscle weakness beginning in the limbs, muscle twitching and cramping, slowed speech becoming progressively harder to understand, difficulty[]

  • Myelitis

    Lower extremities remained largely flaccid with absent deep tendon reflexes and Babinski reflexes bilaterally.[] Reflexes were diminished bilaterally and Babinski sign was equivocal. Examination of optic fundi and cranial nerves were normal.[] On examination he was found to have asymmetric flaccid paralysis of bilateral lower limbs with power grade one to two.[]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Symptoms of muscle twitching, irritability, and/or increased urination. Poor appetite that does not improve. If you notice excessive sleepiness, confusion.[]

  • Paraplegia

    There was hyperreflexia on bilateral deep tendon reflex testing, and Babinski sign was positive bilaterally.[] Muscle strength was 3/5 bilaterally for the L2-S1 myotomes, and there was note of 50% sensory deficit on the L2 dermatome down, bilaterally.[]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    Neurological examination was objectified a flaccido-spastic quadriplegia, deep tendon reflexes were lively and diffuse and bilateral Babinski sign.[]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

    twitch.[] […] are briefly stretched by the tap, the nerve impulses in the afferent pathway travel directly to the motor neurons and excite them reflexly to cause the normally visible muscle[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Blood-brain barrier (BBB) and neurotrophic factors seemingly have an important role in multiple sclerosis pathology. Physical activity may influence blood-brain barrier function and levels of neurotrophic factors, and such effects might be moderated by body weight status. This study investigated the effect of[…][]

  • Insulinoma

    Abstract Ectopic insulinoma is a very rare and dormant tumor. Here we report the case of a 79-year-old female who presented with repeated episodes of hypoglycemia and was diagnosed with insulinoma based on laboratory and imaging examinations. Computed tomography and positron emission tomography revealed a[…][]
