268 Possible Causes for Decreased Ankle Reflex

  • Lumbar Spinal Cord Tumor

    ankle reflex in his right lower extremity.[nature.com] Neurological examination revealed a positive Laséque's sign, which distinguishes sciatica from disease of the hip joint, weakness of the extensor hallucis longus and decreased[nature.com]

  • Arsenic-Induced Polyneuropathy

    […] neuropathy likely. 4 The isolated presence of neuropathic symptoms or decreased ankle reflexes is less valuable for diagnosis.[aafp.org] The presence of neuropathic symptoms, decreased ankle reflexes, and decreased distal sensations, regardless of distal muscle weakness and atrophy, makes the diagnosis of peripheral[aafp.org]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    […] but are less sensitive. 2, 7,9,12 Decreased ankle reflexes are also common, as well as the electrodiagnostic equivalent, H reflexes.[dynamicchiropractic.com] reflexes, the most useful physical examination findings for large fiber neuropathy are an abnormally decreased vibration perception to a 128-Hz tuning fork (likelihood ratio[en.wikipedia.org] Clinically, contrasting loss of sharp touch and temperature with subjective increased pain is common. 1,2, 7,9,12 Decreased vibration and position sense occur frequently,[dynamicchiropractic.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    […] correlates with decreased/absent ankle reflex MRI cauda equina gandolinium enhancement in acute cases DIfferential Diagnosis Myasthenia gravis, ALS, infectious myelitis ([step2.medbullets.com] The exam may also show that reflexes such as the ankle or knee jerk are decreased or missing.[mountsinai.org] […] potentials reduced amplitude with relatively preserved conduction velocity implicates axonal neuropathy delayed/absent F waves implicates nerve root involvement delayed/absent H reflex[step2.medbullets.com]

  • Cauda Equina Syndrome

    .  Physical Exam:  Right plantar flexor weakness, absent right ankle reflex, and decreased anal sphincter tone.  Findings consistent w/ CES  Referral:  Medically evacuated[slideshare.net] Also, there may be decreased anal tone; sexual dysfunction; saddle anesthesia; bilateral leg pain and weakness; and bilateral absence of ankle reflexes.[urmc.rochester.edu]

  • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

    In addition, as many as 30% of people with DPN experience muscle weakness, loss of ankle reflexes, and decreased balance and coordination. 2 This can significantly impair[journals.lww.com] […] absent ankle reflexes.[f1000research.com] reflexes, the most useful physical examination findings for large fiber neuropathy are an abnormally decreased vibration perception to a 128-Hz tuning fork (likelihood ratio[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hereditary Areflexic Dystasia

    […] gait, diminished sensation, reflexes, and muscle strength are frequently noted.[footdoc.ca] Also seen with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease is a condition known as " drop foot ", where the foot cannot be raised at the ankle, (see picture to the right) Ankle sprains, abnormal[footdoc.ca] Nerve conduction studies (tests to assess nerve function) demonstrate decreased nerve conduction velocity (the nerves don't send nerve impulses as well as they should).[footdoc.ca]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    reflexes, the most useful physical examination findings for large fiber neuropathy are an abnormally decreased vibration perception to a 128-Hz tuning fork (likelihood ratio[en.wikipedia.org] […] the clinical examination in diagnosing diabetic peripheral neuropathy. [5] While the physician typically assesses the appearance of the feet, presence of ulceration, and ankle[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Lumbosacral Plexus Disorder

    Ankle jerk reflexes are most often lost. There are a few conditions that damage small nerve fibers early in their course.[dartmouth.edu] Such conditions would be expected to result in decreased sensitivity to pain and temperature.[dartmouth.edu]

  • Iodine-induced Hypothyroidism

    Iodine is a micronutrient essential for thyroid hormone synthesis. Thyroid hormone is critical for normal neurocognitive development in young infants, and even transient hypothyroidism can cause adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. Both iodine deficiency and excess can cause hypothyroidism. Although iodine-induced[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
