61 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Protein Increased, Muscle Twitch, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 1

    hyperreflexia ( ) Hoffman's ( ) Babinski's spastic dysarthria lower motor neuron (LMN) signs muscular atrophy weakness clinical fasciculations clumsiness Evaluation Diagnosis[orthobullets.com] Muscles twitch (called fasciculations) and waste away.[msdmanuals.com] On physical exam, signs of hyperreflexia, spasticity, fasciculations, and muscle atrophy are present in an asymmetric fashion. Tongue fasciculations are also present.[medbullets.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[symptoma.com] twitching for 3 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A normal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can rule out chronic radiculopathy. CSF protein and Tau can be increased in ALS, especially in particularly aggressive forms.''[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    hyperreflexia. • Back pain, paresthesias, radicular pain in the legs • Bilateral, asymmetric, unilateral, acute-sub acute progressive leg weakness with any of the features[slideshare.net] If acute transverse myelitis is present, the number of certain white blood cells and the protein level in the cerebrospinal fluid is increased.[merckmanuals.com] Neurological Examination: spastic paraplegia, Babinski sign bilateral patellar, hyperreflexia and aquiliana, sensorial level T4.[omicsonline.org]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Affected individuals may have tremors, muscle stiffness (spasticity), exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), weakness or partial paralysis of the muscles of the limbs, difficulty[icdlist.com]

  • Myelitis

    hyperreflexia. • Back pain, paresthesias, radicular pain in the legs • Bilateral, asymmetric, unilateral, acute-sub acute progressive leg weakness with any of the features[slideshare.net] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination showed a mild increase in white blood cell count (80/mm 3 , 41% neutrophils) and a slightly elevated protein concentration (76 gm/dL)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In some people with transverse myelitis, the cerebrospinal fluid contains more protein than usual and an increased number of white blood cells (leukocytes) that help the body[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Acute Transverse Myelitis

    hyperreflexia. • Back pain, paresthesias, radicular pain in the legs • Bilateral, asymmetric, unilateral, acute-sub acute progressive leg weakness with any of the features[slideshare.net] Cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed pleocytosis, increased protein and decreased glucose.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neurological Examination: spastic paraplegia, Babinski sign bilateral patellar, hyperreflexia and aquiliana, sensorial level T4.[omicsonline.org]

  • Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

    The neurologic examination usually reveals symmetric weakness with either flaccidity and hyporeflexia (if the diagnosis is made early) or spasticity and hyperreflexia (if[aafp.org] […] contractions, twitches, or spasms (fasciculations) Muscle weakness (decreased muscle strength) in the legs that causes falls, makes walking difficult, and may get worse ([medlineplus.gov] […] cough or sneeze), and may extend to the hips or legs Cold sensation of the legs, cool fingers or hands, or coolness of other areas Loss of bowel control, bladder leakage Muscle[medlineplus.gov]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, extensor plantar response).[clinicaltrials.gov] Cerebrospinal fluid contained normal or mildly increased protein levels ( 1 g/l) without cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Usually beginning in one or both hands, MMN is characterized by weakness, muscle atrophy, cramping, and often profuse fasciculations (muscle twitching).[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Myelopathy

    Physical examination commonly elicits long tract signs such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, and abnormal reflexes such as Babinski or Hoffman's sign.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu] The cerebrospinal fluid showed extremely high levels of nerve injury markers particularly glial fibrillar acidic protein (GFAP): 2 610 000/ng/L (ref. 750).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] gait," hesitant and jerky) Myelopathic or "upper motor neuron" findings such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, clonus, Babinski, and Hoffman signs, and bowel and bladder dysfunction[emoryhealthcare.org]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Clinical Loss of fine motor skills, triad of atrophic weakness of hands and forearms; leg spasticity; generalised hyperreflexia. Management Possibly riluzole.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed mild pleocytosis and increased protein concentration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This then leads to fasciculations (muscle twitches), progressively worsening muscle weakness, and a loss of muscle mass and weight.[mndcentre.org.uk]
