  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[thebody.com] […] present with prolonged disease courses with severe neurofibrillary tangle and cerebral amyloidosis pathology, but more atypical phenotypes also occur, including those with dysautonomia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Classically, ankle jerk reflex is absent in peripheral neuropathy.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Autonomic Neuropathy

    Fifty percent of participants had peripheral neuropathy defined as 3 of the following: sensory symptoms, sensory signs, reduced or absent ankle reflexes, and reduced or absent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We, therefore, propose a Turkish variant of familial dysautonomia in these 2 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Autonomic neuropathy is also called autonomic dysfunction or dysautonomia.[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    The ankle tendon reflex was absent in almost half of our patients (40.4 %).[em-consulte.com] Atypical variants of diabetic neuropathy differ in onset, course, manifestations, associations, and putative mechanisms, and are likely to be associated with pain and/or dysautonomia[soc-bdr.org] reflexes: Absent Associated with foot ulcers in chronic DM 7x increase Age: Middle-aged & elderly Location: Soles of feet Neuropathic osteoarthropathy : Frequency increased[neuromuscular.wustl.edu]

    Reflexes are normal in approximately two thirds of patients. In one study, ankle jerks were absent in 37.5%, and areflexia occurred in 12.5%.[emedicine.medscape.com] Keywords Celiac Disease Diagnostic Characteristic Rett Syndrome Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis Familial Dysautonomia These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors[link.springer.com] HSAN III HSAN III-Familial Dysautonomia.

  • Arsenic-Induced Polyneuropathy

    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] Dysautonomia and skin changes (eg, atrophic, shiny skin) sometimes occur. Muscle weakness tends to be proportional to atrophy, and reflexes are rarely lost completely.[merckmanuals.com] Sarcoidosis Conditions causing neuropathy with autonomic features Alcoholism Amyloidosis Chemotherapy-related neuropathy Diabetes Heavy metal toxicity Porphyria Primary dysautonomia[aafp.org]
