76 Possible Causes for Brisk Deep Tendon Reflexes, Cerebellar Stroke

  • Ataxia

    , or a sequel to cerebellar tumor resection.[] Upper motor neuron signs in the legs such as equivocal or extensor plantar responses, brisk deep tendon reflexes and unsustained ankle clonus are sometimes present.[] EOCARR is characterized by dysarthria, gait ataxia, nystagmus, brisk tendon reflexes in the upper and lower limbs, absent ankle reflexes, and discrete or absent deep sensory[]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    Eight of the participants demonstrated neglect (28.6%), four with left cerebellar strokes (three with CN and one with IN) and four with right cerebellar strokes (three with[] Neurologic examination revealed incordinate movements which affected her right side: deep tendon reflexes were brisk in all four extremities.[] We prospectively studied 26 patients with cerebellar stroke and 16 subjects matched for age, sex and educational level as a control group.[]

  • Cerebral Edema

    Even small amounts of edema from a cerebellar stroke can raise intracranial pressure in the posterior fossa.[] Rarer symptoms include brisk deep tendon reflexes, retinal hemorrhages , blurred vision, extension plantar reflexes , and ocular paralysis.[]

  • Hemiparesis

    Stroke 29:2549–2555 PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar Helgason CM, Wilbur AC (1990) Capsular hypesthetic ataxic hemiparesis.[] Neurological examination revealed left spastic hemiparesis with grade 3 power with brisk deep tendon reflexes.[] Battaglia F, Quartarone A, Ghilardi MF, Dattola R, Bagnato S, et al. (2006) Unilateral cerebellar stroke disrupts movement preparation and motor imagery.[]

  • Anterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion

    Basal ganglion stroke Brain stem infarction Brain stem stroke Cerebellar infarct Cerebellar infarction Cerebellar stroke Cerebellar stroke syndrome Cerebral artery occlusion[] All deep tendon jerks were brisk. Gegenhalten and grasp reflex were present bilaterally. Sensations could not be tested.[] Cerebellar strokes Cerebellar strokes commonly impair balance and coordination.[]

  • Dysdiadochokinesis

    stroke Space occupying lesion in the posterior fossa eg. tumour, abscess Other causes of unilateral cerebellar syndrome: Cerebellar pontine angle lesion eg. neurofibromatosis[] Pyramidal findings are present; deep tendon reflexes are brisk early on and absent later in the course.[] There are many causes of cerebellar dysfunction and include vascular, for example: stroke, space-occupying lesions, multiple sclerosis , and genetic conditions such as Friedreich[]

  • Atlantoaxial Subluxation

    We report a 78-year-old woman with rheumatoid arthritis who developed recurrent embolic cerebellar strokes associated with vertical atlantoaxial subluxation (AAS).[] Bilateral Babinski sign was positive, All deep tendon reflexes were brisk; muscle tone was increased with clasp-knife spasticity present in all four limbs.[]

  • CADASIL Syndrome

    Other possible symptoms include, mental impairment, seizures, cerebellar ataxia, lethargy, spasticity or involuntary muscle contractions, fever, drowsiness or coma, infarcts[] A neurological examination revealed left hemiparesis, dysarthria, spasticity in his extremities and diffuse brisk deep tendon reflexes, corresponding to a diagnosis of pure[] […] and leading to pyramidal, cerebellar, extrapyramidal failure and dementia.[]

  • Hypoglycemic Encephalopathy

    PPG has been associated with bilateral cerebral deficits resulting from structural abnormality such as stroke.[] deep tendon reflexes and flexor plantar responses.[] Statistical significance was P 0.0001 except cerebellar white matter lesions ( P 0.02), inferior olivary lesions ( P 0.002) and frontal stroke-like lesion ( P 0.031).[]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 5

    National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. "NINDS Ataxias and Cerebellar/Spinocerebellar Degeneration Information Page." (February 11, 2004).[] Non-cerebellar signs such as facial myokimia, resting tremor, writer's cramp, impaired vibration sense and brisk deep tendon reflexes have been reported in some patients.[] NINDA Ataxias and Cerebellar or Spinocerebellar Degeneration Information Page. (2015, July 17). National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke .[]
