129 Possible Causes for Bilateral Babinski's Reflex, Hyperreflexia

  • 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] , Babinski Decreased or absent: hyporeflexia, cutaneous reflexes decreased or absent Involuntary movements Muscle spasms: flexor or extensor With denervation: fasciculations[physiotherapy-treatment.com] No spasticity or hyperreflexia.[brainscape.com]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    On neurological examination, he showed hyperreflexia, spasticity, and weakness in the lower extremities and bilateral Babinski reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] People with this condition can also experience exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), ankle spasms, high-arched feet (pes cavus), and reduced bladder control.[icdlist.com]

  • Pyramidal Tract Lesion

    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] […] decussation causes impairment of movement in the opposite body-half, which is especially severe in the arm and leg and is characterized by muscular weakness, spasticity and hyperreflexia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.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]

  • 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]

  • 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).[icd9data.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]

  • Pallidopyramidal Syndrome

    Clinical manifestations include tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity, postural instability, spasticity, mainly in the lower limbs, and hyperreflexia.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] , bilateral Babinski reflex Good Blood tests, comprehensive of calcium and phosphate, were normal.[bmcneurol.biomedcentral.com] The pyramidal features include paraparesis, scissoring of gait, Bakinski sign, hyperreflexia, and pseudobulbar effect.[neurologyindia.com]

  • 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] Reflexes were diminished bilaterally and Babinski sign was equivocal. Examination of optic fundi and cranial nerves were normal.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] Sx: leg weakness, sphincter dysfunction, abnormal DTRs [acutely may be absent, but hyperreflexia the rule].[hopkinsguides.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]
