58 Possible Causes for Distal Hyporeflexia or Areflexia

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    In 1919, Woltmann found features of PNS disease in 4.9% of patients with PA, including distal hyporeflexia or areflexia; 80% of these also had evidence of cord involvement[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Anemia

  • CANOMAD Syndrome

    The clinical picture comprises a chronic neuropathy with marked sensory ataxia and hyporeflexia/areflexia.[orpha.net] Patients have relatively preserved motor function in the limbs, although some may develop distal weakness.[orpha.net]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    The examination shows symmetric proximal and distal limb weakness, generalized hyporeflexia or areflexia, and distal sensory loss with large fiber modalities (joint position[dx.doi.org]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    To make a formal diagnosis of GBS, two clinical criteria are required—progressive weakness in more than one limb and areflexia (or distal areflexia with proximal hyporeflexia[journalofethics.ama-assn.org] […] paraesthesia at or before the onset of weaknessCerebrospinal fluid albuminocytological dissociationSpecific diagnosesClassic GBS Weakness* and areflexia/hyporeflexia in all[vdocuments.net] […] interval between onset and nadir ofweakness of 12 h to 28days, followed by clinical plateauAlternative diagnosis should be excluded Antecedent infectious symptoms Presence of distal[vdocuments.net]
