1,048 Possible Causes for Bilateral Babinski's Reflex, EMG Shows Evidence of Reinnervation, Muscle Biopsy Abnormal

  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    Muscle histology Deltoid muscle biopsies showed no mitochondrial abnormalities or dysfunction (Table 4 ). Muscle biopsies were normal in seven patients.[academic.oup.com] In all cases, the main clinical feature was a tetrapyramidal syndrome (Table 1 ) with hyperactive deep tendon reflexes and bilateral Babinski and Hoffman signs.[academic.oup.com] Normal Normal Abnormal 18 Abnormal Normal Normal Abnormal 19 Abnormal Normal/increased Normal Normal 20 Abnormal Increased/normal Normal Normal Table 4 Electrophysiological[academic.oup.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Only about 10% of ALS patients have abnormal nerve conduction study results, but the test can also suggest other diagnoses. A muscle biopsy.[webmd.com]

  • Hyponatremia

    An electromyogram showed nonspecific abnormalities while a muscle biopsy did not show any pathology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pallidopyramidal Syndrome

    EEG showed mild nonspecific abnormalities. Sural nerve biopsy showed mild demyelination.[ajnr.org] , bilateral Babinski reflex Good Blood tests, comprehensive of calcium and phosphate, were normal.[bmcneurol.biomedcentral.com] Histochemistry of skeletal muscle obtained by open biopsy showed virtually absent COX activity, and biochemical analysis of a muscle homogenate confirmed an isolated reduction[ajnr.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    For patients with MND affecting the LMNs, the EMG will show evidence of: (1) acute denervation, which is ongoing as motor neurons degenerate, and (2) chronic denervation and[en.wikipedia.org] The results of electromyography and muscle biopsy were compatible with ALS. However, supranuclear vertical gaze palsy and slow saccades are seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] reinnervation of the muscle, as the remaining motor neurons attempt to fill in for lost motor neurons.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • MELAS Syndrome

    Electron microscopy of a muscle biopsy sample revealed mitochondria with abnormally arranged cristae and abnormal electron densities.[mja.com.au] Babinski reflexes.[stroke.ahajournals.org] Histologically, there are ragged red fibres on muscle biopsy and accumulation of abnormal mitochondria in smooth muscle.[omicsonline.org]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    Muscle biopsy revealed a neurogenic pattern while the sural nerve was normal on histological examination.[doi.org] On neurological examination, he showed hyperreflexia, spasticity, and weakness in the lower extremities and bilateral Babinski reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The deep tendon reflexes were increased in all four limbs, but Babinski sign was not elicited bilaterally. Neither ankle nor knee clonus was observed.[nature.com]

  • Encephalopathy

    Nerve and muscle biopsies may also be performed and may provide valuable information about the type and cause of the neuropathy.[webmd.com] The patient refused further evaluation by muscle biopsy.[doi.org] Using these tests, doctors can often pinpoint the abnormal nerves and determine which part of their structure is damaged.[webmd.com]

  • Cerebral Cortical Atrophy

    The corpus callosum appears abnormally thin. Muscle biopsy shows evidence of denervation atrophy.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]
