12 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.[] He had decreased sensation to light touch in his LUE and LLE and increased sensation to pain in his LLE. Proprioception was intact.[]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Case series. To describe the management of 7 patients with grade 1 cervical compressive myelopathy attributed to herniated disc using intermittent cervical traction and manipulation of the thoracic spine. Intermittent cervical traction has been indicated for the treatment of patients with herniated disc and has[…][]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuritis

    Kiloh-Nevin syndrome was first described in 1948 by Parsonage and Turner and further defined in 1952 by Kiloh and Nevin. The aetiology is highly debated. Two common causes of Kiloh-Nevin syndrome are compression neuropathy and brachial plexus neuritis. In this study the results in six patients who were treated[…][]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    This study reports on a 70-year-old man with recurrent cervical myelopathy 20 years after anterior decompression and fusion of C4-7 using a free vascularised strut graft. The recurrent myelopathy was secondary to a kyphotic deformity of a fractured graft and residual ossification of the posterior longitudinal[…][]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    We present a case of obstructive hydrocephalus secondary to ascending spinal cord oedema, sustained after cervical spine fracture in a patient with ankylosing spondylitis. To our knowledge, this is the first report of ascending oedema from a cervical cord injury causing obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Bickerstaff Brainstem Encephalitis

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

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    Neurologic exam revealed 0/5 deltoid, 3/5 biceps, 2/5 triceps, 4/5 wrist extension, and 4/5 intrinsic hand muscle strength bilaterally.[] There was decreased muscle tone and absent reflexes in the upper extremities bilaterally without fasciculations, and sensory exam was entirely intact.[]

  • Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

    Reflexes were decreased at the biceps, brachioradialis, and patella, and were absent at the Achilles tendon. Plantar response was downgoing bilaterally.[] Motor coordination tests revealed bilateral dysdiadochokinesia and dysmetria.[]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    Physical exam revealed decreased upper extremity tone, strength and reflexes bilaterally.[] Needle electromyography demonstrated myokymic discharges from bilateral del toid, biceps, and triceps.[] 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[]

  • 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.[] Sensory exam showed decreased vibration and joint-position perception over the toes (right more than left).[]
