223 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, Hyporeflexia

  • 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]

  • Hyperkalemia

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    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] Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is characterized by rapidly evolving ascending weakness, mild sensory loss, and hyporeflexia or areflexia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical examination confirmed lower left facial palsy and paresthesia of his extremities with hyporeflexia of his lower limbs and sensory loss of all four extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypokalemia

    […] resulting hyperpolarization leads to a reduced neuromuscular excitability and thus causes: Muscular adynamia (extreme form: paresis ) Weakening or suspension of reflexes (hyporeflexia[flexikon.doccheck.com] With more severe hypokalemia, flaccid paralysis and hyporeflexia may result.[en.wikipedia.org] These patients typically have proximal motor weakness and hyporeflexia in the presence of a normal level of consciousness.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Hereditary Areflexic Dystasia

    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] […] number of peripheral myelinated nerve fibers ; Distal amyotrophy ; Distal muscle weakness ; Distal sensory impairment ; Gait ataxia ; Hammertoe ; Hypertrophic nerve changes ; Hyporeflexia[mousephenotype.org] […] features of rhythmic shaking (static tremor) in the hands and an unsteady gait ( gait ataxia ) are specific to Roussy Levy syndrome. 0001288 Hypertrophic nerve changes 0003382 Hyporeflexia[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Charcot Marie Tooth Disease

    Five months after the transient CNS symptoms, he finally developed signs and symptoms of neuropathy in the form of absent ankle reflexes.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Common clinical manifestations of CMTX1 disease, as in other forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, are distal muscle wasting and weakness, hyporeflexia, distal sensory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ankle reflexes were bilaterally absent. Sequencing revealed a novel heterozygous c.712C T (p.R238C) mutation in the GJB1 gene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Accidental Hypothermia

    Patients may have ataxia, dysarthria, amnesia, hyporeflexia, areflexia, hypoesthesia, poor suck reflex (in infants), and central pontine myelinolysis. Psychiatric.[ahcmedia.com]

  • Tabes Dorsalis

    The patellar and ankle reflexes were absent and there was loss of vibratory and position sense in the lower extremity.[lksom.temple.edu] Time period after infection Hyporeflexia (50%) Sensory impairment (48%) Pupillary changes, Argyll Robertson Pupil (43%) Positive romberg (24%) What is pathognomonic for neurosyphilis[quizlet.com] Charcot joint, hyporeflexia, Romberg sign, are also relatively common findings, as seen in this patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    Tendon reflexes are absent in almost all cases but may be weakly present if the patient is examined early in the course of the disease.[emedicine.medscape.com] Patellar and ankle jerks are affected most profoundly.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    […] normal limits; he had zero out of five strength in his hips, two out of five strength in his knees and shoulders, and normal strength distally with bicipital and patellar hyporeflexia[academic.oup.com] With more severe hypokalemia, flaccid paralysis and hyporeflexia may result.[flipper.diff.org] Neurological examination revealed proximal muscle weakness and generalized hyporeflexia. There was no sensory abnormality and bowel or bladder involvement.[ispub.com]
