245 Possible Causes for Absent Deep Tendon Reflex, Flaccid Paralysis, Stroke

  • Poliomyelitis

    […] survivors of poliomyelitis reported in 31 studies Kelly M Jones 1 , Shivanthi Balalla 1 , Alice Theadom 1 , Gordon Jackman 2 , Valery L Feigin 1 1 National Institute for Stroke[] The objective of this paper was to review the need for acute flaccid paralysis surveillance by presenting two cases.[] Deep tendon reflexes were normal except for absent Achilles reflexes bilaterally. He could walk with leg braces.[]

  • Familial Periodic Paralysis

    To differentiate it from Guillian Barre syndrome, deep tendon reflexes are normal and 7th cranial nerve is spared.[] National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. NINDS Familial Periodic Paralyses Information Page. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.[] Periodic paralysis, familial Clinical Information Heterogenous group of inherited disorders characterized by recurring attacks of rapidly progressive flaccid paralysis or[]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    NIH: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke[] Flaccid paralysis Scoliosis Bed sores: Long term paraplegia may lead to pressure sores Respiratory failure Death Spinal muscular atrophy is transmitted via an autosomal-recessive[] He has tongue fasciculations and absent deep tendon reflexes. Serum creatine phosphokinase and aldolase levels are normal.[]

  • Botulism

    There may be signs of: Absent or decreased deep tendon reflexes Absent or decreased gag reflex Eyelid drooping Loss of muscle function, starting at the top of the body and[] […] must be careful when diagnosing botulism because it may cause symptoms similar to diseases such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and strokes[] Abstract Botulism is the acute, flaccid paralysis caused by a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    This study investigated whether hypokalemia in the acute stroke stage contributes to worse functional outcome in AIS patients.[] Severe hypokalemia results in extreme weakness of the body and, on occasion, in paralysis . The paralysis that occurs is "flaccid paralysis," or limpness.[] The primary end point was ischemic stroke. Cox models were used. RESULTS: Hypokalemia was mild (mean, 3.4 mmol/L; range, 2.7-3.6).[]

  • Adult Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Rather, it is usually just one of many symptoms of another condition, such as ALS, a stroke, or a spinal cord injury.[] The examination may show all the characteristic findings of a lower motor neuron disease, namely absent/decreased reflexes, hypotonia, flaccid paralysis and muscle fasciculations[] deep tendon reflexes Respiratory failure Variable cranial nerve involvement: opthalmoplegia, facial diplegia Additional Specific SMA1Clinical Features [ edit ] Lack of motor[]

  • Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

    In the majority of patients, deep tendon reflexes are markedly diminished or absent, although some patients may have brisk or normal jerks, even during paralysis ( 15 ).[] National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Published March 12, 2012.[] Hypokalemia, with associated flaccid paralysis, and signs of hyperthyroidism, are the hallmark.[]

  • Hyperkalemia

    . _________________ And many strokes, though with a little axe, hew down and fell the hardest-timbered oak. - William Shakespeare Amit1408GMAThunk Intern Joined: 15 Mar 2013[] In 94 patients, flaccid paralysis was described and in 25, severe muscular weakness; in 65 patients, these findings were associated with other symptoms.[] deep tendon reflexes When hyperkalemia is discovered, investigate potential pathophysiologic mechanisms.[]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Tone and power were normal throughout, lower limb deep tendon reflexes were absent and plantars were downgoing.[] The effect of electrical stimulation treatment on the functional rehabilitation of acute geriatric patients with stroke - a preliminary study.[] […] three cases of osteoarticular infection manifested by flaccid limb paralysis without the typical systemic signs of infection.[]

  • Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis

    National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Published March 12, 2012.[] These procedures produced attacks of flaccid paralysis that occurred concomitantly with rapid rises in serum potassium concentrations and decreases in blood glucose and inorganic[] Página 258 - Guidelines for the management of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage: a statement for healthcare professionals from a special writing group of the Stroke Council[]
