228 Possible Causes for Absent Deep Tendon Reflex, Poliomyelitis

  • Poliomyelitis

    Recently, it has been reported that intramuscular injections may also increase the likelihood of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis in recipients of live attenuated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Deep tendon reflexes were normal except for absent Achilles reflexes bilaterally. He could walk with leg braces.[web.archive.org] High diversity of poliovirus strains isolated from the central nervous system from patients with vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tick Paralysis

    Deep tendon reflexes are usually hypoactive or absent and ophthalmoplegia and bulbar palsy can occur. Children may be ataxic.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During an epidemic of poliomyelitis, tick paralysis should always be kept in mind as a possible alternative diagnosis. Received September 30, 1947.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] , whereas others contend that Landry's paralysis is an independent symptom complex, not due to the specific virus of poliomyelitis, but due to some unknown form of toxin,[annals.org]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    At the time of office visit, he could no longer walk or hold up objects, and had absent deep-tendon reflexes as well as weakened left lung breath sounds.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] WITH the virtual elimination of poliomyelitis, Guillain—Barré syndrome has become the most common cause of acute generalized paralysis, with an annual incidence of 0.75 to[doi.org] BACKGROUND: An outbreak of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), a disorder characterized by acute, symmetric limb weakness with decreased or absent deep-tendon reflexes, was reported[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Familial Periodic Paralysis

    To differentiate it from Guillian Barre syndrome, deep tendon reflexes are normal and 7th cranial nerve is spared.[icd.codes] Until the recent development of immunizing vaccines, the most frequent cause of peripheral paralysis in children was poliomyelitis . neuritis , inflammation of a nerve, can[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] (Citation Required) - During an attack reflexes may be decreased or absent.[icd.codes]

  • Vaccine-associated Paralytic Poliomyelitis

    To describe a case of vaccine associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) and relate this to current UK immunization policy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Deep tendon reflexes are also affected, and are usually absent or diminished; sensation (the ability to feel) in the paralyzed limbs, however, is not affected 11 .[ijpsr.com] The authors analyzed all 6043 cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) reported in Latin America during 1989-91 to estimate the risk of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myelitis

    Lower extremities remained largely flaccid with absent deep tendon reflexes and Babinski reflexes bilaterally.[nature.com] Poliomyelitis and flaviviruses. Ann Neurol. 2003;53:691–2. PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 6. World Health Organization.[doi.org] Deep tendon reflexes were absent in both lower limbs and brisk in left upper limb. Plantars were mute bilaterally.[omcr.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Rabies

    There was weakness of neck flexors and proximal limb muscles, absent deep tendon reflexes (DTR) with flexor plantar response.[web.archive.org] The differential diagnosis of rabies includes tetanus, poliomyelitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, viral encephalitis and poisonings and drugs.

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    He has tongue fasciculations and absent deep tendon reflexes.

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1

    Deep tendon reflexes are absent. Respiratory failure is common. Mild contractures (of the knees and, more rarely, of the elbows), and scoliosis may be present.[orpha.net] Motor neurone disease Primary lateral sclerosis Muscular dystrophy Congenital myopathies Disorders of carbohydrate metabolism ( glycogen storage diseases ) Myasthenia gravis Poliomyelitis[patient.info] As the disease progresses, autonomic dysfunction and tongue twitching develop, and deep tendon reflexes are absent.[genedx.com]
