739 Possible Causes for Brisk Reflexes, Weakness

  • Periodic Paralysis

    The patient was initially suspected of having periodic paralysis but, due to the presence of recurrent vomiting and brisk reflexes, MR imaging of the brain was performed which[] He rapidly recovered from weakness after acetazolamide treatment.[] This transference results in severe hypokalemia and clinically manifests itself as muscle weakness or paralysis.[]

  • Phenylketonuria

    The main neurological abnormalities in phenylketonuric patients diagnosed in infancy are: brisk reflexes, spastic paraparesis, psychiatric signs that appear 10.5years after[] In the last year before reassessment he displayed loss of weight, muscle weakness resulting in wheelchair placement, upper respiratory infections, and fungal skin infections[]

  • Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

    Patients usually have brisk reflexes (as they have thyrotoxicosis ). The creatinine kinase is often normal on an investigation.[] A 25-year-old woman was admitted to our department as the limb weakness progressively worsened.[] Her weakness started at the erector spinae muscles, which showed marked pseudo-hypertrophy even at the age of 72 years.[]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    He had tongue fasciculations, brisk reflexes and extensor plantar. After supportive electrophysiological studies he was diagnosed as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.[] Onset was in the second to fourth decade with finger extension weakness, progressing to other distal and sometimes more proximal muscles.[] Brisk reflexes will occur in a wasted limb. There is an absence of major sensory symptoms and pain. There is a relentless progression of symptoms and signs.[]

  • Arachnoiditis

  • Hepatitis E

    She developed reduced lower limb power, brisk reflexes, extensor plantars, a sensory level at T8 and reduced anal sphincter tone, establishing a clinical diagnosis of transverse[] We report a 52-year-old man who presented with neck and shoulder pain followed by orthopnea and left arm weakness.[] We report a 58 year-old non-immunocompromised man who presented with progressive muscle weakness in all extremities during an episode of acute HEV infection, which was confirmed[]

  • Cauda Equina Syndrome

    reflexes and upgoing plantars] Cauda equina will typically cause lower motor neurone weakness [flaccid tone in both legs, bilateral weakness, reduces or absent reflexes and[] In the postoperative period, the patient did not have any muscle weakness of leg but had residual saddle type sensory loss and sphincter dysfunction.[] We describe a case of bilateral weakness of the lower limbs, sensory disturbance and intermittent urinary incontinence, secondary to untreated Gitelman's syndrome, in a 42[]

  • Maple Syrup Urine Disease

    She did not respond to stimulation, had brisk reflexes, and marked truncal hypotonia with peripheral hypertonia. There were “roving eye movements”.[] She had severe leg and moderate arm weakness, areflexia, and distal sensory loss.[] […] brainstem, the cerebral peduncles, the thalami, the dorsal limb of the internal capsule and the centrum semiovale, while conventional dual-echo sequence evidenced only a weak[]

  • Transverse Myelitis

    She developed reduced lower limb power, brisk reflexes, extensor plantars, a sensory level at T8 and reduced anal sphincter tone, establishing a clinical diagnosis of transverse[] Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rapidly progressive symmetrical muscle weakness associated with acute inflammatory disease.[] This includes weakness, tightness/stiffness of the muscles, spastic leg jumps and brisk reflexes.[]

  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    Meanwhile, dysphagia, brisk reflexes, and a pseudobulbar affect had developed.[] Patients experience stiffness; decreased balance and coordination; mild weakness; and, if the bulbar region is affected, difficulty speaking and swallowing, and emotional[] Patients with corticospinal tract dysfunction have slow voluntary movements with brisk stretch reflexes and spasticity.[]
