13 Possible Causes for Circumduction Gait, Hyperreflexia

  • Stroke

    An examination showed decreased strength on the right side, with hyperreflexia and an up-going plantar response.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pyramidal Tract Lesion

    Symptoms include an increase in the muscle tone in the lower extremities, hyperreflexia, positive Babinski and a decrease in fine motor coordination.[sideeffects.embl.de] […] decussation causes impairment of movement in the opposite body-half, which is especially severe in the arm and leg and is characterized by muscular weakness, spasticity and hyperreflexia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] There is hypertonia (increased muscle tone, stiffness), hyperreflexia (exaggerated reflexes), and an oscillatory movement known as clonus.[courses.washington.edu]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    This case showed spasticity and hyperreflexia with pathological reflexes and ankle clonus as well as muscle weakness in all extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If the patient can walk, look for a spastic gait with bilateral circumduction described as “scissoring”, and whilst they are standing inspect the spine for scars.[ptpaces.wordpress.com] On neurological examination, he showed hyperreflexia, spasticity, and weakness in the lower extremities and bilateral Babinski reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Palsy with Spastic Diplegia

    Classification Physiologic Classification Spastic (most common) Velocity-dependent increased muscle tone and hyperreflexia with slow, restricted movement due to simultaneous[orthobullets.com] The subject demonstrated improvements in left hip and knee flexion and decreased left hip abduction and circumduction during gait after three weeks of IMOT.[pediastaff.com]

  • Paraparesis

    If the patient can walk, look for a spastic gait with bilateral circumduction described as “scissoring”, and whilst they are standing inspect the spine for scars.[ptpaces.wordpress.com] Clonus is usually a pathologic finding, but a few beats, particularly at the ankles, can be found in healthy persons who have constitutional hyperreflexia.[nejm.org] Hereditary spastic paraparesis Spastic leg paraparesis Changes in gait or there would be difficulty attaining usual gait Hyperreflexia Clonus Sensation is altered Neurological[byebyedoctor.com]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spastic Paraplegia 52

    Spastic Gait Patients with uncomplicated HSP generally exhibit bilaterally symmetrical gait disturbance, 56 including short stride length (because of difficulty flexing the[neupsykey.com] Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] seizures (in some patients) Spasticity Thin or absent corpus callosum (in some patients) Mental retardation, severe Delayed psychomotor development Loss of ability to walk Hyperreflexia[mnglabs.com]

  • Hemiparesis

    With mild hemiparesis, loss of normal arm swing and slight circumduction may be the only abnormalities.[web.archive.org] Strength changes will be investigated by measuring muscle hypertrophy, hyperreflexia, and passive stiffness.[clinicaltrials.gov] Also, myoclonus or tremor is seen in up to 38% patients, hyperreflexia and other pyramidal tract signs in 85% patients and psychosis, visual hallucinations and paranoid delusions[ijcasereportsandimages.com]

  • Nothnagel's Syndrome

    The hemiparetic gait is also characteristic with foot drop causing circumduction as the involved leg is swung out and forward before the next step.[emedicine.medscape.com] In some cases, pyramidal signs (generalized hyperreflexia and positive Babinski sign) are observed.[orpha.net]

  • Ataxia

    There are some specific gaits: the waddling gait of hip girdle weakness; the steppage gait of foot-drop; the swinging gait of quadriceps weakness; and the circumducting or[dartmouth.edu] Motor examination showed lower limb physiologic hyperreflexia without spasticity, and power testing was normal. Sensory examination was normal.[neurology.org] […] scissors gait of upper motor neuron weakness.[dartmouth.edu]

  • Old Age

    The subject presented with mental state changes (confusion and agitation), hyperreflexia, diaphoresis, nausea, vomiting, fever, and a general tonic-clonic seizure which developed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Variable step width (lurching to one side or the other) suggests poor motor control, which may be due to frontal or subcortical gait disorders.[merckmanuals.com] Circumduction (moving the foot in an arc rather than a straight line when stepping forward) occurs in patients with pelvic muscle weakness or difficulty bending the knee.[merckmanuals.com]
