10 Possible Causes for Decreased Bilateral Biceps Reflex

  • Cervical Spinal Cord Tumor

    Reflexes were slightly diminished (1 ) in biceps; triceps and Achilles bilaterally. Hoffmann and Babinski signs were negative. Rectal tone was normal.[omicsonline.org] He had decreased sensation to light touch in his LUE and LLE and increased sensation to pain in his LLE. Proprioception was intact.[omicsonline.org]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    Abstract An unusual case report is presented describing an incident in which an RF-4C instructor pilot fractured three cervical vertebrae after impacting the rear canopy top during a negative G defensive maneuver. The pilot subsequently developed an incomplete tetraparesis later in flight and the aircraft had to[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Cervical herniated disc results in posterior or posterolateral protrusion of the intervertebral disc, most commonly in the C6-C7 segments of the cervical spine. Causes include spinal degeneration and sometimes trauma. Patients may be asymptomatic, but nerve root compression can give rise to symptoms such as pain,[…][symptoma.com]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    A 58-year-old man presented with a 6-month history of progressive cervical myelopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography of the cervical spine revealed a bone tumor arising from the posterior arch of the atlas and osteophytes at a pseudoarthrosis between the tumor and the lamina of the axis,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuritis

    We report the case of a 37-year-old woman who developed idiopathic brachial plexus neuritis, also referred to as Parsonage-Turner syndrome, after laparoscopic excision of endometriosis. The differential diagnosis between this non-position-related neuritis and brachial plexus injury is discussed. The aim of this[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Bickerstaff Brainstem Encephalitis

    Triceps brachii and biceps brachii reflexes were decreased bilaterally, and brachioradialis reflexes were absent bilaterally.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Physical exam revealed decreased upper extremity tone, strength and reflexes bilaterally.[appliedradiology.com] Needle electromyography demonstrated myokymic discharges from bilateral del toid, biceps, and triceps.[appliedradiology.com] CASE SUMMARY A 37-year-old male treated with chemoradiation therapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) 11 years prior (radiation dosage to bilateral neck of 5400cGy), presented[appliedradiology.com]

  • Hematomyelia

    Reflexes were slightly diminished (1 ) in biceps; triceps and Achilles bilaterally. Hoffmann and Babinski signs were negative. Rectal tone was normal.[omicsonline.org] He had decreased sensation to light touch in his LUE and LLE and increased sensation to pain in his LLE. Proprioception was intact.[omicsonline.org]

  • Spinal Cord Ependymoma

    Reflexes were slightly diminished (1 ) in biceps; triceps and Achilles bilaterally. Hoffmann and Babinski signs were negative. Rectal tone was normal.[omicsonline.org] He had decreased sensation to light touch in his LUE and LLE and increased sensation to pain in his LLE. Proprioception was intact.[omicsonline.org]

  • Lower Motor Neuron Syndrome with Late-Adult Onset

    Deep tendon reflexes (biceps, brachioradialis, triceps, patellar, and Achilles) were 3 bilaterally. Plantar responses were upgoing bilaterally.[clinicaladvisor.com] Sensory exam showed decreased vibration and joint-position perception over the toes (right more than left).[clinicaladvisor.com]
