Vital capacity was normal.[academic.oup.com] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org] 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[rarediseasesindia.org]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

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