146 Possible Causes for Fecal Incontinence, Hyperreflexia, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Myelopathy

    Physical examination commonly elicits long tract signs such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, and abnormal reflexes such as Babinski or Hoffman's sign.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu] Sphincter disturbances may develop late in the disease course, although fecal or urinary incontinence is unusual. 16 Despite significant advancements in diagnostic modalities[doi.org] Clinical hyperreflexia was tested at the MCP joint, using a six-axis load cell.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    Objective neurological deficit (upper motor neurone signs in the legs (eg, up-going plantars, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity); lower motor neurone signs in the arms (eg[patient.info] This condition may lead to the following: Inability to hold in feces ( fecal incontinence ) or urine ( urinary incontinence ) Loss of muscle function or feeling Permanent[nlm.nih.gov] Eleven patients (58%) had lower limb hyperreflexia or Babinski sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Cord Tumor

    Physical Findings on physical examination correspond to the location of the tumor, degree of cord impingement, and duration, and may include the following: Spasticity; hyperreflexia[emedicine.medscape.com] Hyperreflexia IX.[fpnotebook.com] As spinal cord compromise advances, hyperreflexia and Babinski reflexes are typically present. Lax rectal sphincter tone is a late sign of spinal cord dysfunction.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Subacute Transverse Myelitis

    hyperreflexia. • Back pain, paresthesias, radicular pain in the legs • Bilateral, asymmetric, unilateral, acute-sub acute progressive leg weakness with any of the features[slideshare.net] Key points Acute widespread neurologic deterioration, particularly involving urinary and fecal incontinence and para- or tetraparesis in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus[cmaj.ca] An areflexic cystometrogram tended to change to a low compliance bladder, followed by detrusor hyperreflexia or a normal cystometrogram.[nature.com]

  • Myelitis

    hyperreflexia. • Back pain, paresthesias, radicular pain in the legs • Bilateral, asymmetric, unilateral, acute-sub acute progressive leg weakness with any of the features[slideshare.net] incontinence.[merckmanuals.com] The patient with detrusor hyperreflexia had an unrecordable CMCT-TA.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Affected individuals may have tremors, muscle stiffness (spasticity), exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), weakness or partial paralysis of the muscles of the limbs, difficulty[icdlist.com] Affected individuals may have tremors, muscle stiffness (spasticity), exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), weakness or partial paralysis of the muscles of the limbs, difficulty[icdlist.com]

  • Transverse Myelitis

    hyperreflexia. • Back pain, paresthesias, radicular pain in the legs • Bilateral, asymmetric, unilateral, acute-sub acute progressive leg weakness with any of the features[slideshare.net] incontinence.[msdmanuals.com] Clinically these patients exhibited hyperreflexia and had rapid improvement with immunotherapies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Spasticity is characterized as hyperreflexia and hypertonicity as a result of damage to the supraspinal tracts in the aftermath of SCI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lack of function results in fecal incontinence, chronic constipation, or both.[unitedspinal.org] The most important factors are the spasm, decubitus nature, insufficient motivation, deformity, urinary and fecal incontinence.[boneandspine.com]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    Physical Findings on physical examination correspond to the location of the tumor, degree of cord impingement, and duration, and may include the following: Spasticity; hyperreflexia[emedicine.medscape.com] Spinal cord compression usually causes decreased sensation and paralysis of limbs below the level of compression, urinary and fecal incontinence, and/or urinary retention,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical examination revealed hyperreflexia and a T11 sensory level. MRI revealed a pseudomeningocele compressing the thoracic spinal cord.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
