25 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, Bilateral Babinski's Reflex

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    His reflexes were absent and Babinski sign was present bilaterally. A nine-year-old sister was found to have mild ataxia but was otherwise neurologically intact.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abetalipoproteinemia

    Summary Epidemiology It is very rare, with an estimated prevalence of less than 1/1,000,000. Clinical description ABL/HoFHBL manifests during the first year of life or in young childhood. It is often associated with growth delay, hepatomegaly with steatosis, diarrhea with steatorrhea, and fat malabsorption. Spastic[…][orpha.net]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    , upgoing plantars and clonus) Absent ankle reflexes Tongue wasting and fasciculations Increased jaw jerk Dysarthric speech Sensation was normal Coordination was in proportion[medicaleducationleeds.com] , Babinski Decreased or absent: hyporeflexia, cutaneous reflexes decreased or absent Involuntary movements Muscle spasms: flexor or extensor With denervation: fasciculations[physiotherapy-treatment.com] […] mixed upper and lower motor neuron signs such as: Wasting and fasciculations Spastic paraparesis (increased tone bilaterally, pyramidal weakness bilaterally, increased knee reflexes[medicaleducationleeds.com]

  • Vitamin E Deficiency

    , bilateral Babinski's sign, reduced proprioception at four limbs, pes cavus and fasciculations of the tongue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] speech; muscular strength and trophism were slightly diminished in the distal muscles of four limbs and there was hypotonia of the arms; he presented absent deep tendon reflexes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anterior Spinal Artery Syndrome

    On examining her lower limbs, her tone was flaccid with absent knee and ankle reflexes bilaterally, power in both her lower limb were 0/5 , her sensation was markedly reduced[oatext.com]

  • Myelopathy

    This combination of neuropathy and myelopathy is one of the causes of the time-honoured neurological ‘paradox’ of absent ankle reflexes with upgoing plantar responses.[pn.bmj.com]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    A complication of severe chronic PA is subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord, which leads to distal sensory loss (posterior column), absent ankle reflex, increased[en.wikipedia.org] […] or absent.[ispub.com] In mildly affected cases the activity of the knee and ankle jerks may be either increased or diminished but in severely affected patients these reflexes are always decreased[ispub.com]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    For example, if the compression is at C5-C6, the biceps and supinator reflexes[c5, C6] may be absent, with a brisk triceps reflex (C7).[boneandspine.com] Ankle clonus may also be present in some patients.[boneandspine.com] The reflexes may be absent at the level of compression.[boneandspine.com]
