864 Possible Causes for Brisk Lower Limb Reflexes, Disturbance of Coordination, Interictal Downbeat Nystagmus

  • Autosomal Recessive Spinocerebellar Ataxia 8

    According to Baloh and others (1997), EA2 is characterized by a progressive ataxia with interictal rebound nystagmus evoked by gaze, as well as downbeating nystagmus.[tchain.com] Motor system examination revealed mild asymmetric spasticity of the lower limbs. Power was normal. The reflexes were brisk with bilateral extensor plantar response.[jpgmonline.com] The result is a lack of coordination and balance, or disturbance in their gait.[disabled-world.com]
