53 Possible Causes for Brisk Tendon Reflexes, Cervical Radiculopathy, Hyperreflexia

  • Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia

    From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by progressive spasticity and hyperreflexia[wikidata.org] All four affected individuals were assessed clinically as having mild to moderate mental retardation, brisk tendon reflexes and an up going extensor planter response.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] Cervical spondylosis It can be organized into three clinical syndromes including Type I Syndrome which called Cervical Radiculopathy, Type II Syndrome or Cervical Myelopathy[explainmedicine.com]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    BACKGROUND: Gait dysfunction associated with spasticity and hyperreflexia is a primary symptom in patients with compression of cervical spinal cord.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Findings suggestive of myelopathy include brisk, deep tendon reflexes, an upgoing plantar reflex (Babinski sign), reflex contraction of the thumb induced by tapping the dorsal[cmaj.ca] Therefore, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of radiculopathy combined with cervical myelopathy and to evaluate the characteristics of cervical myelopathy with or without[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Spine Disease

    RESULTS: Patients most frequently present with hyperreflexia (21%) and weakness (21%), and there were various conservative treatment strategies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neurological examination revealed a brisk deep tendon reflex of upper and lower limbs.[nature.com] Types of Cervical Spine Disease Cervical spine disease can include: Cervical radiculopathy Cervical spine stenosis Cervical Radiculopathy Cervical radiculopathy, also referred[mdmercy.com]

  • Cervical Cord Compression

    Two patients did not show satisfactory improvement after the decompression of the entrapment lesions, and six patients had hyperreflexia of lower limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Brisk or hyperactive muscle stretch reflexes elicited by tendon tapping may occur in normal individuals who do not have spasticity, (remember spasticity is increased tone[neuroanatomy.wisc.edu] CONCLUSIONS: Electrophysiological abnormalities together with clinical signs of cervical radiculopathy could predict clinical manifestation of preclinical spondylotic cervical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Severe Intellectual Disability and Progressive Spastic Paraplegia

    People with this condition can also experience exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), ankle spasms, high-arched feet (pes cavus), and reduced bladder control.[icdlist.com] Investigations also found the patient to have brisk tendon reflexes and clonus on elicitation. His 19-year-old sister showed milder symptoms.[cags.org.ae] Cervical spondylosis It can be organized into three clinical syndromes including Type I Syndrome which called Cervical Radiculopathy, Type II Syndrome or Cervical Myelopathy[explainmedicine.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 4

    ALS4 patients show hyperreflexia, have brisk deep-tendon reflexes and the Babinski sign is present.[symptoma.com] There are no standard laboratory tests for upper motor neuron disease, but spasticity (a specific type of stiffness), abnormally brisk tendon reflexes, Babinski’s sign and[memory.ucsf.edu] […] myelopathy or radiculopathy Laboratory diagnosis there are currently no laboratory tests that confirm the diagnosis EMG / NCS - shows denervation reinnervation widespread[orthobullets.com]

  • X-Linked Spastic Paraplegia Type 34

    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] Neurological examination showed only brisk tendon reflexes in both. Otherwise, no signs of spasticity, such as Babinski reflex, were present.[omicsonline.org] […] notable at the iliopsoas , tibialis anterior, hamstring muscles  difficulty in walking, decreased vibratory sense at the ankles, and paresthesia  In lower extremities hyperreflexia[slideshare.net]

Many patients complain of muscle cramps.[aafp.org]

  • Cervical Nerve Root Compression

    Objective neurological deficit (upper motor neurone signs in the legs (eg, up-going plantars, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity); lower motor neurone signs in the arms (eg[patient.info] Neurological examination revealed a brisk deep tendon reflex of upper and lower limbs.[nature.com] Cervical Radiculopathy Candidates Cervical radiculopathy can occur in a wide variety of patients.[emoryhealthcare.org]

  • Adult Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    Affiliated tissues include spinal cord , and related phenotypes are spastic tetraparesis and hyperreflexia[malacards.org] There are no standard laboratory tests for upper motor neuron disease, but spasticity (a specific type of stiffness), abnormally brisk tendon reflexes, Babinski’s sign and[memory.ucsf.edu] Table TABLE 2 Differential Diagnosis of ALS Spinal cord lesions Examples: tumors, lymphoma, syringomyelia, vascular malformations Spinal bone lesions Examples: spondylosis, cervical[aafp.org]
