203 Possible Causes for Foot Drop, Hyperreflexia

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Atrophy may be present, but hyperreflexia and spasticity are not seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinically, it is characterized by slowly progressive asymmetrical predominantly distal weakness; unilateral wrist drop, grip weakness, and foot drop are the commonest initial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MMN can usually be distinguished from ALS by its more slowly progressive disease course, the absence of upper-motor-neuron signs such as spasticity and hyperreflexia and the[mmcneuro.wordpress.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    […] remains normal Physical exam neck ptosis (neck drop) due to neck extensor weakness manual muscle testing elicits muscle cramping upper motor neuron (UMN) signs spasticity hyperreflexia[orthobullets.com] This usually begins on one side of the body and can cause loss of hand dexterity, shoulder function, a foot-drop or walking difficulty.[alsbc.ca] The patient may develop foot drop resulting in a fall or sprain. Fasciculations may present early on in the disease, particularly in the tongue.[emedicine.com]

  • Tetanus

    […] usually occurs after an acute injury, such as a puncture wound or laceration; generalized tetanus, the most common form, is characterized by tetanic muscular contractions and hyperreflexia[icd9data.com] We found this case to be associated with dysphagia and facial spasm, and we learned that the child had dropped a brick on his foot 2 weeks previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tetanus is a life-threatening neurological syndrome characterised by tonic muscle spasms and hyperreflexia, caused by the exotoxin of Clostridium tetani , a gram-positive[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Abstract Anemia is a major problem in patients with chronic kidney insufficiency. The development of recombinant human erythropoietin has enabled physicians to correct this anemia. Although anemia has not been considered to be a common or important contributor to congestive heart failure, anemia of any cause can[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Lateral Sclerosis

    […] disease; a slowly progressive degenerative disorder of the motor neurons of the cerebral cortex, resulting in widespread weakness on an upper motor neuron basis; spasticity, hyperreflexia[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Specific Needs I seek funding for a set of Bioness L300 foot drop devices.[ability-mission.org] […] idiopathic non-familial motor neuron disease characterized by slowly progressive upper motor neuron dysfunction leading to spasticity, mild weakness in voluntary muscle movement, hyperreflexia[orpha.net]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    Physical examination revealed hyperreflexia and a T11 sensory level. MRI revealed a pseudomeningocele compressing the thoracic spinal cord.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may experience stiffness and heaviness of the affected extremity, they may present with an unsteady gait or ataxia (failure of muscle co-ordination) and foot drop[myvmc.com] Lhermitte's sign (intermittent shooting electrical sensation) and hyperreflexia may be present.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cholinergic Crisis

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) - hyperreflexia and extensor plantar response can be seen, which help differentiate it from MG.[patient.info] The child was treated with physiotherapy, but was left with disabilities like claw hand, foot drop and the inability to walk.[content.iospress.com] foot下垂足(垂れ足)、尖足 drop hand[下]垂手(垂れ手) dysarthria構音障害、延髄[球]言語 dysgraphia書字障害、書字錯誤 dysmnesia記憶障害 dysphagia嚥下困難、嚥下障害 dysphasia発語障害、不全失語[症] dysphonia発声障害 dystoniaジストニア、筋緊張異常 dystrophy[tokyo-med.ac.jp]

  • Mononeuritis Multiplex

    CNS Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, upgoing plantar reflexes) are usually seen distal to the lesion.[cancertherapyadvisor.com] Mononeuritis multiplex is a peripheral sensorimotor neuropathy usually producing foot or wrist drop, commonly associated with necrotizing arteritis of small and medium-sized[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] drop.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Charcot Marie Tooth Disease

    Signs of this "serotonin syndrome" include changes in mental status, hypertension, restlessness, myoclonus (sudden muscle contraction), hyperreflexia (accentuated reflexes[web.archive.org] Abstract Gait abnormalities reported in childhood Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) include foot-drop, reduced ankle power at push-off and increased knee and hip flexion for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They may include: Foot deformity (very high arch to feet) Foot drop (inability to hold foot horizontal) Loss of lower leg muscle, which leads to skinny calves Numbness in[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    She has now developed right thigh weakness and a left sided foot drop.[brainscape.com] Upper Motor Neuron Disease Symptoms The weakness of involved muscles, hyperreflexia, hypertonicity, mild disuse atrophy, and abnormal reflexes; damaged tracts are in the lateral[howtorelief.com] However, occasionally problems in the leg or legs may occur: Foot drop (early). Gait disorder. A sensation of heaviness of one or both legs. A tendency to trip.[patient.info]
