233 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, Autonomic Neuropathy

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    neuropathy, and transient hypoglycemia-associated autonomic neuropathy.[] OBJECTIVE: The diabetic autonomic neuropathy is a poorly studied subject in our medical literature.[] Three patients developed symptoms of autonomic neuropathy which subsequently resolved.[]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Nerve and muscle biopsies were suggestive of chronic motor, sensory, and autonomic neuropathy.[] Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[] […] ataxic neuropathy, one of which was autonomic neuropathy, and one case was diagnosed as painful sensory neuropathy without sensory ataxia.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Low, Other autonomic neuropathies associated with ganglionic antibody, Autonomic Neuroscience, 146, 1-2, (13), (2009).[] F waves implicates nerve root involvement delayed/absent H reflex correlates with decreased/absent ankle reflex MRI cauda equina gandolinium enhancement in acute cases DIfferential[] Clinicopathological features of acute autonomic and sensory neuropathy. Brain 133, 2881–2896 (2010). 18. Koike, H. et al.[]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    The results of this preliminary study indicate a good practicality of the handheld device and suggest a potential positive effect on cardiac autonomic neuropathy in patients[] The ankle tendon reflex was absent in almost half of our patients (40.4 %).[] Autonomic neuropathy (digestive, urogenital, cardiac, cutaneous affection related to distal sensory neuropathy due to damage to the C fibres).[]

  • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

    Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy include cracked skin and dry feet.[] ankle reflexes.[] Ankle reflexes are usually reduced or absent, and knee reflexes may also be reduced in some cases.[]

  • Alcoholic Neuropathy

    […] also has been implicated in the development of cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) and various cranial neuropathies, including optic neuropathy and vagus neuropathy.[] A combination of nutritional deficiency and direct toxicity is likely involved in the pathogenesis of alcoholic neuropathy, and these effects may be additive. [13, 14] Alcohol[] […] in pain sensation Painless injuries Decrease in reflex Autonomic neuropathy Resting tachycardia Urinary frequency Erectile dysfunction Glomerulosclerosis Pyelonephritis Diabetes[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Lower esophageal sphincter hypertension was observed in alcoholic subjects with autonomic neuropathy.[] Ten (43%) alcoholic subjects had autonomic neuropathy and four (17%) had increased gastroesophageal acid reflux.[] neuropathy.[]

  • Arsenic-Induced Polyneuropathy

    Other rare congenital neuropathies include Fabry disease, Tangier disease, hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathy, and hereditary amyloidosis.[] Proximal lower limb muscles were affected in 40% patients, rare upper limb involvement and ankle reflexes were absent in all with evidence of axonal degeneration and reinnervation[] .  Tendon reflexes: Absent or Preserved except at ankles  Recovery: With delay after removal of toxin  Progression ("coasting") for 1 to 4 months  Improvement: Months[]

  • Neuropathy

    When these areas are affected by Neuropathy it is referred to as Autonomic Neuropathy . Autonomic Neuropathy is a Peripheral Neuropathy .[] Distal reflex loss, manifested by absent ankle jerks but preserved reflexes elsewhere, is very characteristic of the length dependent axonopathies.[] Classically, ankle jerk reflex is absent in peripheral neuropathy.[]

  • Lumbosacral Plexus Disorder

    […] nervous system 337.0 Idiopathic peripheral autonomic neuropathy 337.1 Peripheral autonomic neuropathy in disorders classified elsewhere 337.9 Unspecified disorder of autonomic[] […] patellar reflex L4 Medial lower leg/foot Knee extensors and ankle dorsiflexors Diminished or absent patellar reflex L5 Lateral leg/foot Hallux extension and ankle plantar[] Diabetic autonomic neuropathy, present to some degree in up to 75% of patients with type 2 diabetes.[]
