77 Possible Causes for Absent Ankle Reflex, primarily in the legs, severe muscle wasting

Did you mean: Absent Ankle Reflex, primarily in the legs, severe, muscle wasting

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    […] diagnosis of infants with congenital contractures and severe muscle weakness by wasting mainly confined to the upper limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In both, knee and ankle reflexes were absent and sensation was intact. Serum creatine kinase levels were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    atrophy type 1 with paradoxical breathing were placed on high-span PIP PEEP when sleeping from the point of diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org] Three children with spinal muscular atrophy type 1 underwent multiple intrathecal and intravenous infusions of mesenchymal stem cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    […] spinal muscular atrophy and juvenile asymmetric segmental spinal muscular atrophy.[symptoma.com] The condition primarily affects the muscles that control chewing and swallowing, chest wall muscles, and arm and leg muscles.[ucsfbenioffchildrens.org] Spinal muscular atrophies of childhood Spinal muscular atrophy Spinal muscular atrophy Spinal muscular atrophy Spinal muscular atrophy Spinal muscular atrophy Spinal muscular[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    atrophy, Dr.[sciencedaily.com] 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] FRDA was first described in 1863 as a disease that is primarily early onset, associated with progressive limb and gait ataxia, absent tendon reflexes from the legs, axonal[doi.org]

  • Hereditary Areflexic Dystasia

    Tooth HH (1886) The peroneal type of progressive muscular atrophy. Thesis, HK Lewis, University of Cambridge, London Google Scholar 7.[doi.org] 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] […] are located in the lower leg.[mydr.com.au]

  • Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Characterised by severe muscle wasting as in SMA type I accompanied by congenital bone fractures PCH Spinal muscular atrophy with pontocerebellar hypoplasia (SMA-PCH) Pontocerebellar[ipfs.io] […] or absent ankle reflexes and minimal or no sensory loss, sometimes mild proximal weakness in the legs and feet and hand deformities in males.[orpha.net] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]

  • X-linked Distal Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3

    Characterised by severe muscle wasting as in SMA type I accompanied by congenital bone fractures PCH Spinal muscular atrophy with pontocerebellar hypoplasia (SMA-PCH) Pontocerebellar[ipfs.io] […] or absent ankle reflexes and minimal or no sensory loss, sometimes mild proximal weakness in the legs and feet and hand deformities in males.[orpha.net] This form affects primarily the muscles in the legs.[mda.org]

  • Monomelic Amyotrophy

    Rev Neurol (Paris) 145: 163–8 Medline, Google Scholar Hirayama K ( 2000 ) Juvenile muscular atrophy of distal upper extremity (Hirayama Disease).[doi.org] The ankle reflex was absent in 6 cases. Amyotrophy of lower limb with absent knee and ankle reflexes were seen in 4 cases.[scielo.br] Disorder progression tends to be slower in patients who are younger than 40 at onset, [ 8 ] [ 9 ] are mildly obese, [ 10 ] have disorder restricted primarily to one limb,[cinabrio.over-blog.es]

  • Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy

    Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease Déjérine-Sottas disease Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy, types I-IV Hypertrophic neuropathy of infancy Peroneal muscular atrophy (axonal[icd.codes] […] foot swelling Fatigue Muscle cramps Diminished or absent ankle reflexes HNPP Testing (Not all evaluation and tests may be necessary.)[foundationforpn.org] Types I and II are characterized by weakness and atrophy, primarily in peroneal and distal leg muscles. Patients often have a family history of neuropathy.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Excluding lower motor neuron FA and FL cases, progressive muscular atrophy comprised 4% of the sample and had a prognosis similar to typical limb onset ALS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At clinical examination, ankle reflex was absent but the other deep tendon reflexes were brisk. She had amyotrophy and fasciculations in the 4 limbs.[dx.doi.org] […] by often asymmetric and primarily distal LMN involvement in the lower limbs.[doi.org]
