193 Possible Causes for Absent Deep Tendon Reflex, Transverse Myelitis

  • Poliomyelitis

    myelitis with paraparesis, urinary retention, sensory symptoms and signs, autonomic dysfunction (including hyperhidrosis or hypohidrosis), and decreased limb temperature[] Deep tendon reflexes are also affected, and are typically absent or diminished; sensation (the ability to feel) in the paralyzed limbs, however, is not affected. [43] The[] […] muscle weakness The initial phase is typically followed by some recovery of muscle strength, but permanent weakness results from necrosis of anterior horn cells Rarely, a transverse[]

  • Tick Paralysis

    The differential diagnosis includes entities that are infectious or caused by toxins of infectious agents, such as epidural abscess, some causes of transverse myelitis, and[] An 84-year-old man presented in June in coastal Mississippi with several days of subacute ataxia, bulbar palsy, unilateral weakness, and absent deep tendon reflexes.[] Botulism Guillain-Barre Syndrome Myasthenia gravis Lambert-Eaton syndrome Diptheria Poliomyelitis Transverse myelitis Periodic paralysis Spinal Cord Compression Heavy metal[]

  • Varicella

  • Anterior Spinal Artery Syndrome

    Diagnostic workup of patients with acute transverse myelitis: spectrum of clinical presentation, neuroimaging and laboratory findings.[] A 16-year-old girl with Down syndrome presented with urinary retention and acute complete flaccid paralysis of the legs with absent deep tendon and abdominal reflexes.[]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Transverse myelitis. Retrospective analysis of 33 cases, with differentiation of cases associated with multiple sclerosis and parainfectious events.[] Tone and power were normal throughout, lower limb deep tendon reflexes were absent and plantars were downgoing.[]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

    […] other causes of transverse myelitis idiopathic (aquaporin 4 negative) post-infectious vascular spinal cord infarction dural arteriovenous fistula (dAVF)[] Rectal tone may be decreased, and deep tendon reflexes may be exuberant or absent. Imaging Traditionally, plain x-rays are taken of any possibly injured areas.[] Idiopathic acute transverse myelitis Idiopathic acute transverse myelitis (IATM) is an autoimmune myelitis that results in bilateral motor, sensory, and autonomic dysfunction[]

  • Neuromyelitis Optica

    Short transverse myelitis (STM) is considered uncommon in neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD).[] Absent Deep tendon reflexes which may later become exaggerated. As mentioned earlier MS and NMO are often confused together.[] Furthermore, UT Southwestern launched the first comprehensive longitudinal study of transverse myelitis and neuromyelitis optica in 2012.[]

  • Myelitis

    What causes transverse myelitis? Experts don’t know the exact cause of transverse myelitis.[] Lower extremities remained largely flaccid with absent deep tendon reflexes and Babinski reflexes bilaterally.[] Neurological examination: hypotonic paraplegia, absent deep tendon reflexes in the lower limbs, bilateral Babinski and bilateral sensory loss below D4.[]
