371 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    Ankle Reflex (Tendo-Achillis Reflex) - Diminished or absent reflexes when L4, 5 and S1 nerve is damaged. How is Lumbar Disk Herniation Diagnosed?[epainassist.com] Test your reflexes at the knee and ankle. These may sometimes be absent if there is a compressed nerve root in your spine. Straight leg raise (SLR) test.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] Diminished Knee and Ankle Joint Reflexes Knee Reflex - L2 and L3 nerve damage causes abnormal knee joint reflex.[epainassist.com]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[thebody.com] Classically, ankle jerk reflex is absent in peripheral neuropathy.[en.wikipedia.org] A physical examination will involve testing the deep ankle reflex as well as examining the feet for any ulceration.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    The concept of "structural plasticity" has emerged as a potential mechanism in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases such as drug abuse, depression, and dementia. Chronic alcoholism is a progressive neurodegenerative disease while the person continues to abuse alcohol, though clinical and imaging studies show[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    To report the use of fludrocortisone for heparin-induced hyperkalemia and to briefly review the available literature relating to heparin-induced hyperkalemia. A 34-year-old African-American man was admitted to the hospital for pneumococcal pneumonia and sepsis. His hospital course was complicated by the development[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    Diabetic autonomic neuropathy is one of the commonest complications of diabetes. Although it can involve the autonomic nervous system diffusely, symptoms are confined to a single organ system and are responsible for increased incidence of morbidity, reduced quality of life and mortality. Diabetic neuropathy affects[…][symptoma.com]

  • Spinal Stenosis

    Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is a potentially disabling disorder. Little is known about the contributors to severe forms of the illness. We describe three consecutive patients with severe ME/CFS whose symptoms improved after recognition and surgical management of their cervical spinal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Abstract This report summarizes what we believe to be the first verifiable case of a significant and progressive motor neuron disease (MND) consistent with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis that resolved during treatment with i.v. ceftriaxone plus oral atovaquone and mefloquine. The rationale for use of these[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
