  • 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] ankle reflex, increased knee reflex response, and extensor plantar response.

  • Subacute Combined Degeneration of Spinal Cord

    In patients A, E, and G ankle reflexes were diminished and in patients H and I they were absent.[jnnp.bmj.com] Patient H had hyperactive reflexes of the upper limbs. Patellar tendon reflexes were hyperactive in patient A, reduced in patient H, and absent in patient I.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Malaria

    Other neurological manifestations include increased muscle tone, brisk tendon reflexes, absent abdominal and other superficial reflexes, ankle clonus, extensor plantar responses[doi.org] The abdominal reflexes are almost always absent, the plantars often upgoing, and ankle and patellar clonus can sometimes be elicited in hypertonic patients. 54 SEIZURES The[jnnp.bmj.com] Tone and reflexes are variable.[jnnp.bmj.com]
