76 Possible Causes for Bilateral Babinski's Reflex, Clonus, Hyperreflexia

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    The knee-jerk is excessive and ankle-clonus is easily obtained.[henriettes-herb.com] On neurological examination, he showed hyperreflexia, spasticity, and weakness in the lower extremities and bilateral Babinski reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] reduction of nerve transmission giving rise to various clinical manifestations such as paresthesias, loss of vibratory sensation, and proprioception.Severe weakness, spasticity, clonus[explainmedicine.com]

  • Pyramidal Tract Lesion

    In a patient with clonus, a muscle stretch elicits alternating contractions of agonist and antagonist muscle groups.[courses.washington.edu] Symptoms include an increase in the muscle tone in the lower extremities, hyperreflexia, positive Babinski and a decrease in fine motor coordination.[sideeffects.embl.de] These include hyperreflexia, spasticity, positive Babinski sign and loss of superficial abdominal reflexes.[kenhub.com]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    His motor and sensory exams and reflexes are normal although he does exhibit mild finger clonus. The patient was referred for an MRI of the cervical spine.[radsource.us] Hyperreflexia may follow initial symptoms, and a positive Babinski reflex may be elicited.[symptoma.com] Neurologic examination demonstrated a broad-based, spastic gait, brisk muscle stretch reflexes, and bilateral Babinski signs.[aibolita.com]

  • Cervical Spinal Cord Tumor

    Coming down the stairs or stepping off a curb will reveal ankle clonus felt as "vibrations" by patient.[clinicaladvisor.com] Reflexes were slightly diminished (1 ) in biceps; triceps and Achilles bilaterally. Hoffmann and Babinski signs were negative. Rectal tone was normal.[omicsonline.org] Below that level, Upper Motor Neuron (UMN) findings are those of spasticity, hyperreflexia with upgoing Plantar reflex also called Babinski's sign With Extradural lesion ([clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

    A patient’s reflexes may vary from being absent to hyperreflexia with clonus (rhythmic muscle spasms or contractions) and extensor plantar responses (a/k/a Babinski responses[matzuslaw.com] Massive Disc Herniation, Spinal Epidural Abscess or Bony Metastasis) Vertebral Fractures, Osteomyelitis Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) Note - Cord Compression is a UMN lesion (Hyperreflexia[emdidactic.blogspot.com] Patellar clonus was present, with hypoesthesia below D 9 level. The chest x-ray was within normal limits.[atmph.org]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    No ankle clonus was observed. Babinski’s sign was the plantar response. The anal sphincter tone was intact.[karger.com] An areflexic cystometrogram tended to change to a low compliance bladder, followed by detrusor hyperreflexia or a normal cystometrogram.[nature.com] Deep tendon reflexes were generalized hyperreflexia. No ankle clonus was observed. Babinski’s sign was the plantar response. The anal sphincter tone was intact.[karger.com]
