  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 3

    The fact that hyperreflexia may be detected in regions of muscle atrophy is considered to be highly indicative of ALS.[] Hyperreflexia and an increase of muscle tone are most characteristic and may be detected in muscles of face, larynx and pharynx (bulbar region), neck, arms, and diaphragm[] Besides these lower motor neuron signs, upper motor neuron signs are characteristic of ALS: ALS patients suffer from hyperreflexia and present with an increased muscle tone[]

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

    Massive Disc Herniation, Spinal Epidural Abscess or Bony Metastasis) Vertebral Fractures, Osteomyelitis Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) Note - Cord Compression is a UMN lesion (Hyperreflexia[] 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[] WikEM: Epidural abscess (spinal) Motor Neuron Signs Upper Motor Neuron: Spasticity Hyperreflexia Pronator drift Babinski Lower Motor Neuron: Flaccidity Hyporeflexia Fasciculation[]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Atrophy may be present, but hyperreflexia and spasticity are not seen.[] MMN can usually be distinguished from ALS by its more slowly progressive disease course, the absence of upper-motor-neuron signs such as spasticity and hyperreflexia and the[] Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, extensor plantar response).[]

  • Spinal Cord Ependymoma

    Eric Kratky In January 2007, Erik Kratky was 21 and pursuing his undergraduate degree when he experienced bilateral leg weakness.[] He presented hypotonic brachial diparesis (grade 4), spastic paraparesis (grade 4-5), patellar hyperreflexia and clonus at the ankles, Babinski s sign on the right foot.[] Other signs evident upon physical examination may include spine tenderness, stiffening of gait, trophic changes of extremity, sensory loss, hyperreflexia, clonus, and scoliosis[]

  • Anterior Spinal Artery Syndrome

    weakness.[] Detrusor hyperreflexia was noted in 8 patients, a normal bladder in 1 and detrusor areflexia in 1.[] Patient: A 13-year-old male patient presented to our emergency department with a bilateral leg weakness. 1 week before, he had suffered a leg strain in a Taekwondo-fight from[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Large parasagittal meningiomas may result in bilateral leg weakness.[] Neurologic examination revealed severe right leg weakness with hyperreflexia, ankle clonus, and a questionable plantar response.[]

  • Thyroid Lymphoma

    The patient, a 42-year-old man, presented with chest discomfort and bilateral leg weakness of one week's duration.[] Neurologic examination revealed decreased muscle power and hyperreflexia in both lower legs. Babinski's sign was present bilaterally.[] Neurologic examination revealed decreased muscle power and hyperreflexia in both lower legs. Babinski's sign was present bilaterally.[]

  • Paraplegia

    leg weakness.[] Definition Patients with a spinal cord injury at T7 or higher are at risk for autonomic hyperreflexia.[] […] most often associated with spinal cord diseases, although brain diseases; peripheral nervous system diseases; neuromuscular diseases; and muscular diseases may also cause bilateral[]

  • Spinal Trauma

    It presents with spastic paresis , hyperreflexia , and continued sensory loss.[] The following are possible complications of SCI: Blood pressure changes that can be extreme ( autonomic hyperreflexia ) Increased risk for injury to numb areas of the body[] A change in symptoms occurs after a period of 6–8 weeks and includes spastic paralysis , recurrence of proprioceptive reflexes as hyperreflexia , and the presence of pathological[]
