369 Possible Causes for Brisk Tendon Reflexes, Muscle Weakness

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Onset was in the second to fourth decade with finger extension weakness, progressing to other distal and sometimes more proximal muscles.[] Clinical examination revealed postural tremor at the right hand, mild tongue atrophy with diffuse fasciculations and brisk tendon reflexes without other muscular weakness[] […] deep tendon reflexes, and absence of sensory deficits.[]

  • Hemiparesis

    Muscle weakness on one side of the body. hemiparesis mild paralysis affecting one side of the body hem·i·pa·re·sis ( hem'ē-pă-rē'sis ) Weakness affecting one side of the[] Neurological examination revealed left spastic hemiparesis with grade 3 power with brisk deep tendon reflexes.[] HEMIPLEGIA Hemiplegia refers to severe paralysis or muscle weakness on one side of the body.[]

  • Congenital Cataract

    Their muscle weakness fluctuated and was alleviated by edrophonium chloride.[] On neurologic examination, all patients had dysarthria, truncal hypotonia, brisk tendon reflexes, and bilateral extensor plantar responses.[] Clinical description Clinical features include congenital cataract (total or rapidly progressive), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, muscle weakness and lactic acidosis after exercise[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Many variants of presentation of GBS have been recognized, however a case presenting with primarily psychiatric and autonomic dysfunction preceding muscle weakness has not[] tendon reflexes.[] reflexes during the clinical course of illness.45 Among these individuals, tendon reflexes were normal in eight patients and exaggerated in three patients throughout the[]

  • Oculodentodigital Dysplasia

    weakness (5) and paresthesias (3).[] There was spasticity of all four limbs with mild bilateral weakness of finger abduction, hip flexion, and knee flexion, very brisk tendon reflexes with a few beats of clonus[] Neurological problems, including dysarthria, neurogenic bladder disturbances, spastic paraparesis, ataxia, anterior tibial muscle weakness, and seizures, are known to occur[]

  • Subacute Thyroiditis

    This condition is called thyrotoxicosis and manifests as agitation, sleeping disturbances, warm skin, heat intolerance, weight loss, muscle weakness and trembling.[] There was a resting tremor of the fingers and brisk deep tendon reflexes.[] weakness; sore throat; severe thyroid pain; and an enlarged damaged gland containing giant cells.[]

  • Myoglobinuria

    The patient had proximal muscle weakness and tenderness, markedly raised muscle enzymes and deranged renal functions that normalised with thyroid replacement therapy.[] Clinical features include seizures, mild-to moderate psychomotor retardation, and brisk tendon reflexes.[] We evaluated a patient for progressive muscle weakness and tenderness, with myoglobinuria one week after initial presentation.[]

  • Ataxia

    Mitochondrial (mt) DNA-associated NARP (neurogenic muscle weakness, ataxia, and retinitis pigmentosa) syndrome is due to mutation in the MT-ATP6 gene.[] 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[] FA's major neurological symptoms include muscle weakness and ataxia , a loss of balance and coordination.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 10

    Muscle weakness is followed by atrophy, and fasciculations are very common, too.[] Clinical hallmarks are spasticity, brisk tendon reflexes, pyramidal signs, and progressive atrophy and weakness of the skeletal musculature.[] The earliest symptoms include muscle twitching, cramping, stiffness, or weakness.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis-Parkinsonism-Dementia Complex 1

    ALS usually surfaces as muscle weakness, cramping, fatigue, and stiffness of the limbs.[] 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[] Rigidity, muscle weakness, and loss of control, generalized slowness and poor coordination, gait and speech disorders, and dysphagia make it increasingly difficult to cope[]
