27 Possible Causes for EMG Shows Neurogenic Changes and Denervation, Hyperactive Brainstem Reflexes

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org] In about 25% of cases, ALS begins with brainstem symptoms (dysarthria, difficulty swallowing) followed by extremity weakness.[neuropathology-web.org] […] causes initially increased electrical excitability leading to fasciculations, and later muscle weakness and atrophy; upper motor neuron involvement causes spasticity, clonus, hyperactive[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Hereditary Hyperekplexia

    Patients may also have umbilical and inguinal hernias and hyperactive brainstem reflexes such as head retraction, palmomental and snout reflexes.[cags.org.ae]
