1,405 Possible Causes for Babinski Sign, Decreased Vital Capacity, Hyperactive Brainstem Reflexes

  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy

    Pseudobulbar palsy is a clinical syndrome of dysarthria, dysphagia, a hyperactive gag reflex and labile emotional responses.[] sign.[] It results from bilateral upper motor neuron brainstem lesions.[]

  • Infantile-Onset Ascending Hereditary Spastic Paralysis

  • Juvenile Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] Hyperreflexia is another key feature of PLS as seen in patients presenting with the Babinski's sign.[] All deep tendon reflexes were exaggerated with bilateral ankle clonus and Babinski sign. There was no sensory or cerebellar dysfunction.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    capacity less than 60 percent predicted. 22 One retrospective study 21 demonstrated a 40 percent decrease from predicted vital capacity, compared with a 60 percent decrease[] . • No clonus or Babinski sign. • No sensory level.[] sign.[24] The course of the disease is usually monophasic, but recurrent episodes have been reported.[]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Pulmonary function tests show decreased vital capacity and total lung capacity, although residual and functional residual lung volumes were increased.[] Babinski's reflex info... Babinski's sign I info... Babinski's sign II info... Babinski's sign III info... Babinski's syndrome info... Babinski's test info...[] Airflow measurements and ventilatory function remain normal in patients with restricted chest wall motion, but vital capacity is decreased and functional residual capacity[]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    Reflexes were decreased in the arms and absent in the legs. Vital capacity was normal.[] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] sign 62% Male, female distribution ratio 1:1 Biochemical study: Low plasma citrate and elevated pyruvate levels and resulting low citrate/pyruvate ratio have been observed[]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    Monitoring arterial pO 2 or oxygen saturation is not enough, as vital capacity can decrease markedly before these parameters change.[] Her tendon reflexes were brisk, and Babinski's sign was positive. She was diagnosed with probable amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).[] sign.[24] The course of the disease is usually monophasic, but recurrent episodes have been reported.[]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    Vital capacity breaths of 15% CO2 elicited similar increases in VE in five patients and in ten controls, but no changes in VE were found in the remaining five patients (p[] […] of spinal cord compression such as the Babinski's sign, hemiparesis, muscle spasticity, and episodic urinary retention.[] capacity breaths of 15% CO2 in O2.[]

  • Myasthenic Crisis

    […] forced vital capacity (FVC), atelectasis, and need for noninvasive ventilatory support are predictors of reintubation. 21 Two retrospective studies found atelectasis in all[] Meningeal and cerebellar signs were negative on examination.[] […] pneumonia are also associated with extubation failure. 7 Tracheostomy placement ranges from 14%-40%. 6 , 7 Reintubation occurs more than one-fourth of the time. 7 , 21 Acidosis, decreased[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 4

    […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] During neurological examination, pyramidal signs can be observed. ALS4 patients show hyperreflexia, have brisk deep-tendon reflexes and the Babinski sign is present.[] There are no standard laboratory tests for upper motor neuron disease, but spasticity (a specific type of stiffness), abnormally brisk tendon reflexes, Babinski’s sign and[]
