403 Possible Causes for Childhood Onset Has Been Reported, Hyperactive Brainstem Reflexes

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] In about 25% of cases, ALS begins with brainstem symptoms (dysarthria, difficulty swallowing) followed by extremity weakness.[] […] causes initially increased electrical excitability leading to fasciculations, and later muscle weakness and atrophy; upper motor neuron involvement causes spasticity, clonus, hyperactive[]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Adult patients with an electro-clinical picture compatible with IGE often represent relapse of childhood epilepsy; however, de novo IGE in adult life has been reported by[] Adults with isolated or rare tonic–clonic seizures and negative EEG studies are generally regarded as having partial epilepsy of uncertain cause, and adult onset IGE would[] […] several investigators. 6– , 16 Attempts to characterise the subsyndromes and genetics of adult onset cases have been sparse. 7, 10, 16 In our first seizure clinic—which serves[]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Case report: We present the clinical and electrophysiological data of a boy with childhood-onset SMA associated with PME and reviewed cases of the literature.[] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] In particular, the association of SMA and progressive myoclonic epilepsy (PME) has been rarely described.[]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] LGMD2J has been reported in Finnish individuals. LGMD2K This extremely rare form of LGMD has been reported in Turkish individuals.[] In about 25% of cases, ALS begins with brainstem symptoms (dysarthria, difficulty swallowing) followed by extremity weakness.[]

  • Worster-Drought Syndrome

    It is of interest that the perisylvian syndrome has been described as a syndrome of childhood-onset epilepsy which, although sharing features of WDS, was reported without[] brainstem reflexes (eg, jaw jerk), the dissociation of automatic and volitional movements of the bulbar muscles with preservation of automatic movements, and the absence[] In this instance, bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria is seen on MRI scan and has been confirmed on post-mortem in some cases.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 5

    […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] A small number of cases have been reported to date. The disorder has been described in various ethnic groups.[] In about 25% of cases, ALS begins with brainstem symptoms (dysarthria, difficulty swallowing) followed by extremity weakness.[]

  • Puerperium

    It has been reported that 44% of seizures related to eclampsia occur in the puerperium, 38% prepartum and 18% intrapartum [ 7 ].[] The onset of epilepsy in pregnancy is less common, as its incidence peaks are in childhood and old age.[]
