189 Possible Causes for Bilateral Babinski's Reflex, Hyperreflexia

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    On neurological examination, he showed hyperreflexia, spasticity, and weakness in the lower extremities and bilateral Babinski reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] People with this condition can also experience exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), ankle spasms, high-arched feet (pes cavus), and reduced bladder control.[icdlist.com] Hyperreflexia, extensor plantar response and increased muscle tone are the recognized UMN signs where as the weakness, muscle wasting, hyporeflexia, muscle cramps, and fasciculations[explainmedicine.com]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    We report two patients with delayed-onset, hyperreflexia and gradually progressive disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His reflexes were absent and Babinski sign was present bilaterally. A nine-year-old sister was found to have mild ataxia but was otherwise neurologically intact.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His examination was significant for spastic gait, hyperreflexia, and sensory neuropathy. Genetic testing revealed a compound heterozygous mutation in the FXN gene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatic Encephalopathy

    […] cause mitochondrial dysfunction Clinical features Behavioral and personality changes, including irritability and disinhibition Motor abnormalities including hypertonia, hyperreflexia[pathologyoutlines.com] […] posturing; MUSCLE SPASTICITY; and bilateral extensor plantar reflexes (see REFLEX, BABINSKI).[fpnotebook.com] […] of earliest clinical symptoms is disturbance in diurnal sleep patterns e) Spectrum of presentation is broad, but some signs to be aware of are: bradykinesia, asterixis, hyperreflexia[errolozdalga.com]

  • Spinal Cord Neoplasm

    As spinal cord compromise advances, hyperreflexia and Babinski reflexes are typically present. Lax rectal sphincter tone is a late sign of spinal cord dysfunction.[emedicine.medscape.com] Compression, motor deficits are more common than sensory Pain on Vertebra l body compression Early changes Flaccidity Hyporeflexia Later changes Cauda Equina Syndrome Spasticity Hyperreflexia[fpnotebook.com] Late signs include demonstrable weakness, clear sensory loss, bilateral Babinski signs, and decreased anal sphincter tone and bulbocavernosus reflex.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Myelitis

    The patient with detrusor hyperreflexia had an unrecordable CMCT-TA.[jnnp.bmj.com] Lower extremities remained largely flaccid with absent deep tendon reflexes and Babinski reflexes bilaterally.[nature.com] Neurological examination: hypotonic paraplegia, absent deep tendon reflexes in the lower limbs, bilateral Babinski and bilateral sensory loss below D4.[eurorad.org]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Upper Motor Neuron Disease Symptoms The weakness of involved muscles, hyperreflexia, hypertonicity, mild disuse atrophy, and abnormal reflexes; damaged tracts are in the lateral[howtorelief.com] Bilateral upper and lower limb weakness with increased bilateral upper limb reflexes and Babinski reflexes were found.[bmcneurol.biomedcentral.com] Examination reveals UMN signs in the legs (weakness, spasticity, pathological reflexes, hyperreflexia), although reflexes may also be brisk in the arms.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    Physical examination revealed hyperreflexia and a T11 sensory level. MRI revealed a pseudomeningocele compressing the thoracic spinal cord.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Late signs include demonstrable weakness, clear sensory loss, bilateral Babinski signs, and decreased anal sphincter tone and bulbocavernosus reflex.[emedicine.medscape.com] Lhermitte's sign (intermittent shooting electrical sensation) and hyperreflexia may be present.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    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] Initially areflexia is present due to spinal shock but, hyperreflexia and spasticity appear later The most common form is anterior spinal artery syndrome.[sci-recovery.org]

  • Transverse Myelitis

    Examination reveals moderate paraparesis with hyperreflexia, a left extensor plantar response, impaired vibratory and proprioceptive sensation, and a sensory level at T6.[nejm.org] Neurological examination was objectified a flaccidospastic quadriplegia, deep tendon reflexes were lively and diffuse and bilateral Babinski sign.[omicsonline.org] […] nonspecific viral illness) • ATM, the onset of spinal cord dysfunction usually progress in 4 hours to 21 days, the patient's signs usually plateau and evolve toward spasticity/hyperreflexia[slideshare.net]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    Flaccid weakness gradually changes to pyramidal tract signs, with hyperreflexia, clonus, and extensor responses.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] Neurological examination was objectified a flaccido-spastic quadriplegia, deep tendon reflexes were lively and diffuse and bilateral Babinski sign.[article.sciencepublishinggroup.com] Neurological Examination: spastic paraplegia, Babinski sign bilateral patellar, hyperreflexia and aquiliana, sensorial level T4.[omicsonline.org]
