Did you mean: Fasciculation of the Tongue, Hyporeflexia (Later

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    Babinski's sign positive) Flexor ( normal; Babinski's sign negative) Extraneous muscle activity No fasciculations/fibrillations Fasciculations and fibrillations amyotrophic lateral[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Slight weakness in the facial muscles and fasciculation of the tongue appeared at age 60. At age 61, she died of sudden respiratory arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fasciculation and atrophy of the tongue appeared at age 68, followed by dysphagia and dysarthria at age 70. She died of respiratory disturbance at age 71.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    , hyperreflexia and atrophy in later stages of disease, but fasciculations are absent.[symptoma.com] Neither atrophy nor fasciculation of the tongue was observed. Both cases showed rapid progression to mutism within a few years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fasciculations of the tongue, which are a prominent feature of SMA, are helpful in making this distinction.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Muscular Fasciculation

    […] and later develop hyperreflexia and spasticity after days to weeks Development of neurologic deficits below the cervical area including: respiratory depression, vasomotor[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] Although not pathognomonic, tongue fasciculations in a young child are highly suggestive of SMA.[n.neurology.org] Tongue Protrusion Your browser does not support h.264 videos. Sequence Fasciculations and atrophy are signs of lower motor neuron lesions.[neuroexam.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Babinski's sign positive) Flexor ( normal; Babinski's sign negative) Extraneous muscle activity No fasciculations/fibrillations Fasciculations and fibrillations amyotrophic lateral[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] At myography, there was diffuse denervation with fibrillations and fasciculations in the 4 limbs and the tongue.[dx.doi.org] Bulbar onset: The first sign is usually slurring of the speech (impaired tongue movement). Wasting and fasciculation of the tongue.[patient.info]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 1

    Babinski's sign positive) Flexor ( normal; Babinski's sign negative) Extraneous muscle activity No fasciculations/fibrillations Fasciculations and fibrillations amyotrophic lateral[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Bulbar onset: The first sign is usually slurring of the speech (impaired tongue movement). Wasting and fasciculation of the tongue.[patient.info] On physical exam, signs of hyperreflexia, spasticity, fasciculations, and muscle atrophy are present in an asymmetric fashion. Tongue fasciculations are also present.[medbullets.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 4

    Babinski's sign positive) Flexor ( normal; Babinski's sign negative) Extraneous muscle activity No fasciculations/fibrillations Fasciculations and fibrillations amyotrophic lateral[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Fasciculations of the tongue, which are a prominent feature of SMA, are helpful in making this distinction.[neuropathology-web.org] Bulbar onset: The first sign is usually slurring of the speech (impaired tongue movement). Wasting and fasciculation of the tongue.[patient.info]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Type 10

    Babinski's sign positive) Flexor ( normal; Babinski's sign negative) Extraneous muscle activity No fasciculations/fibrillations Fasciculations and fibrillations amyotrophic lateral[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Fasciculations of the tongue are often observed and patients may eventually show tongue amyotrophy.[symptoma.com] Lower motor neuron signs of ALS include jaw spasticity. muscle fasciculation. slow tongue movement.

  • Oculomotor Apraxia

    The upper limbs are involved somewhat later but with less pronounced movement impairment. Hyporeflexia or areflexia is common.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Other variable signs include dysarthria, choreiform or athetoid movements, facial grimacing, tongue and limb fasciculations, areflexia, and distal sensory deficits.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Failure to thrive, marked psychomotor retardation, delayed development, growth retardation, and ataxia become evident later in those who survive.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 17

    SCA2 differs clinically from other types of SCAs because of the slow saccade and hyporeflexia [ 22 ].[e-jmd.org] The phenotype of the disease is characterised by late-onset, slowly-progressing cerebellar syndrome; neurosensory hypoacusia; tongue fasciculations and atrophy; and mild pyramidal[elsevier.es] DIAGNOSIS  Recognize progressive ataxia syndrome and associated features  Oculomotor : slow saccades  Bulbar : facial, temporal, tongue atrophy, fasciculation,  cough,[slideshare.net]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spinocerebellar Ataxia 8

    SCA2 differs clinically from other types of SCAs because of the slow saccade and hyporeflexia [ 22 ].[e-jmd.org] The phenotype of the disease is characterised by late-onset, slowly-progressing cerebellar syndrome; neurosensory hypoacusia; tongue fasciculations and atrophy; and mild pyramidal[elsevier.es] DIAGNOSIS  Recognize progressive ataxia syndrome and associated features  Oculomotor : slow saccades  Bulbar : facial, temporal, tongue atrophy, fasciculation,  cough,[slideshare.net]
