19 Possible Causes for Flaccid Paralysis of the Lower Extremity, Hypotension, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Anterior Spinal Artery Syndrome

    At first the lower limb paralysis was flaccid and areflexic but after several weeks spasticity, hyperreflexia, and Babinski signs appeared.[lksom.temple.edu] Postoperative neurologic examination disclosed flaccid paralysis of the lower extremities and sphincter incontinence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is characterized by a corresponding loss of motor function, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and hypotension.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Initially areflexia is present due to spinal shock but, hyperreflexia and spasticity appear later The most common form is anterior spinal artery syndrome.[sci-recovery.org] Within minutes of the injection, the patient developed bilateral lower extremity weakness, which progressed to flaccid paralysis. Fig 1.[ajnr.org] To reduce the risk of hypotensive sequelae such as spinal cord infarction, blood pressure should be closely monitored in elderly patients presenting with retrosternal chest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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 patient also had orthostatic hypotension and post-prandial hypotension associated with an increased insulin level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Orthostatic hypotension and bilateral shoulder pain symptoms were also resolved while bowel/bladder incontinence and upper and lower extremity motor strength loss remained[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] KEYWORDS: IHS intracranial hypotension syndrome; VP ventriculoperitoneal; hydrocephalus; myelopathy; overshunting; ventriculoperitoneal shunt[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] gait," hesitant and jerky) Myelopathic or "upper motor neuron" findings such as spasticity, hyperreflexia, clonus, Babinski, and Hoffman signs, and bowel and bladder dysfunction[emoryhealthcare.org]

  • Pyramidal Tract Disorder

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

He also developed bloody diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and epigastric pain.[nature.com]

  • Foix-Alajouanine Syndrome

    […] and spasticity with increased muscle tone in both lower limbs.[journals.sagepub.com] extremities that progresses to flaccid paralysis, often ascending, loss of sphincter control, and progressive sensory loss.[medicine.academic.ru] […] angiodysgenetic") blood vessels associated with cord necrosis sets this condition apart from remote traumatic injury to cord, syringomyelia, or spinal cord infarction due to hypotension[path.upmc.edu]

  • Paraplegia

    This development led to an evaluation by a neurosurgeon, who noted spasticity and hyperreflexia. Sensory testing demonstrated a possible sensory thoracic level.[medscape.com] Shortly thereafter, the patient reported weakness and loss of sensation in the lower extremities.[anesthesiology.pubs.asahq.org] SCI has been reported after noncardiac surgery in otherwise healthy subjects in whom only one risks factor i.e. severe hypotension has been documented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Narrow Cervical Spinal Canal

    , motor weakness, hyperreflexia and muscular atrophy.[en.wikibooks.org] Alternatively, narrowing of the spinal foramina may compress the nerve roots, causing a lower motor type flaccid paralysis.[explainmedicine.com] Immediate versus delayed fluid resuscitation for hypotensive patients with penetrating torso injuries. N Engl J Med 1994; 331:1105-1109. 4.[books.google.it]

  • Infantile Choroidocerebral Calcification Syndrome

    Basal ganglia calcification Toe walking Spastic gait Paraplegia Unsteady gait Peripheral axonal neuropathy Spastic paraplegia Babinski sign Hypoplasia of the corpus callosum[mendelian.co] Lower thoracic lesions result in flaccid paralysis of the lower extremities and bowel and bladder dysfunction.[glowm.com] […] disorders of nervous system, not elsewhere classified G97.0 Cerebrospinal fluid leak from spinal puncture G97.1 Other reaction to spinal and lumbar puncture G97.2 Intracranial hypotension[icd10data.com]
