233 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, Autonomic Neuropathy

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

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

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

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

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Low, Other autonomic neuropathies associated with ganglionic antibody, Autonomic Neuroscience, 146, 1-2, (13), (2009).[dx.doi.org] 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[step2.medbullets.com] Clinicopathological features of acute autonomic and sensory neuropathy. Brain 133, 2881–2896 (2010). 18. Koike, H. et al.[doi.org]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The ankle tendon reflex was absent in almost half of our patients (40.4 %).[em-consulte.com] Autonomic neuropathy (digestive, urogenital, cardiac, cutaneous affection related to distal sensory neuropathy due to damage to the C fibres).[pijn.com]

  • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

    Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy include cracked skin and dry feet.[symptoma.com] ankle reflexes.[f1000research.com] Ankle reflexes are usually reduced or absent, and knee reflexes may also be reduced in some cases.[clinical.diabetesjournals.org]

  • Alcoholic Neuropathy

    […] also has been implicated in the development of cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) and various cranial neuropathies, including optic neuropathy and vagus neuropathy.[emedicine.medscape.com] 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[emedicine.medscape.com] […] in pain sensation Painless injuries Decrease in reflex Autonomic neuropathy Resting tachycardia Urinary frequency Erectile dysfunction Glomerulosclerosis Pyelonephritis Diabetes[minclinic.ru]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

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

  • Arsenic-Induced Polyneuropathy

    Other rare congenital neuropathies include Fabry disease, Tangier disease, hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathy, and hereditary amyloidosis.[medicinenet.com] 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[annalsofian.org] .  Tendon reflexes: Absent or Preserved except at ankles  Recovery: With delay after removal of toxin  Progression ("coasting") for 1 to 4 months  Improvement: Months[slideshare.net]

  • Neuropathy

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

  • 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[forwardhealth.wi.gov] […] 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[physio-pedia.com] Diabetic autonomic neuropathy, present to some degree in up to 75% of patients with type 2 diabetes.[patient.info]
