11 Possible Causes for Generalized Rhythmic Slowing, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Hyponatremia

    They are primarily central nervous system (CNS) manifestations, such as irritability, restlessness, lethargy, muscular twitching, spasticity and hyperreflexia, all of which[aafp.org]

  • Hydrocephalus

    , hyperreflexia Changes in vital signs resulting from brainstem compression due to herniation Because the fontanelles of infants are still open, the accumulation of CSF can[amboss.com] […] percentile growth chart) Tense fontanelle Setting sun sign : persistent downward deviation of the eyes due to increased ICP in infants and young children Lower extremity spasticity[amboss.com]

  • Familial Infantile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Conclusions: XMESID is a rare X-linked recessive myoclonic epilepsy with spasticity and intellectual disability in boys. Hyperreflexia is found in carrier women.[neurology.org] […] parasagittal theta 2.5-3Hz generalized spike or polyspike-wave discharges (myoclonus) interrupted by slow wave paroxysmal bursts (atonia) AEDs of choice: Valproate, levetiracetam[emilytam.com] Hyperreflexia was observed in obligate carrier women.[neurology.org]

  • Hyperabduction Syndrome

    (Ex: inhibition of stretch-reflex in the spastic hemiparesis).[mafiadoc.com] […] techniques Slow reversal and slow reversal with opposition (SR and SRO) SR represents rhythmic concentric contractions of all agonistics and antagonistics from a movement[mafiadoc.com] The persistence of deep reflexes hyperreflexia is quite always a sign of inhibitory descendant ways disruption.[mafiadoc.com]

  • Other Chorea

    […] with hyperreflexia and/or flexor/extensor plantar reflexes.[orpha.net] Slow waves (3-6 Hz) can occur continually or in intermittent rhythmic paroxysms. They may be generalized or predominantly over the frontal and central regions.[emedicine.medscape.com] – slow, clumsy, stiff movements and hyperreflexia resulting from corticospinal, upper motor neuron lesions Ataxia – irregular, uncoordinated movements caused by lesions of[brainaacn.org]

  • Episodic Ataxia

    […] and spasticity, extracerebellar signs commonly seen with other SCA syndromes.[jnnp.bmj.com] EEG may be characterized by intermittent and generalized slow activity, frequently intermingled with spikes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , spasticity Impaired vibration sense CTG expansion 100-250 (15-52 normal range) 13q21 KLHL1AS Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA9) SCA9 has not yet been characterized. -- -- Spinocerebellar[emedicine.com]

  • Extrapyramidal Disorder

    Patients will complain of distal paresthesias and weakness of the extremities followed by spastic paresis and ataxia.[forums.studentdoctor.net] […] myokymia (Isaac’s syndrome) generalized muscle stiffness and persistent contraction due to underlying continuous muscle fiber activity 66.  Slow 2-3Hz rhythmic alternating[slideshare.net] On exam there is a combined deficit of vibration and proprioception with pyramidal signs (plantar extension and hyperreflexia).[forums.studentdoctor.net]

  • Lethal Neonatal Spasticity - Epileptic Encephalopathy

    Spasticity and hyperreflexia are often present but some newborn infants are hypotonic.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] […] parasagittal theta 2.5-3Hz generalized spike or polyspike-wave discharges (myoclonus) interrupted by slow wave paroxysmal bursts (atonia) AEDs of choice: Valproate, levetiracetam[emilytam.com] Diagnosis of SPG is established by the following clinical features 1, 2 : Typical clinical symptoms of spastic gait impairment and neurologic findings of spastic weakness,[centogene.com]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 26

    Three obligate female carriers had hyperreflexia and the matriarch developed progressive spastic ataxia at age 49 years.[bio2rdf.org] slow spike and wave EEG pattern, andfast rhythmic bursts during sleep.The concept of EIEE is, therefore, applied to a group ofdevastating brain disorders that vary in terms[docslide.com.br] , hyperreflexia, and mental retardation, which they called XMESID.[bio2rdf.org]

  • Atypical Juvenile Parkinsonism

    Involvement of the corticospinal tract, with spasticity, hyperreflexia, and extensor toe signs, was common (13 of 52 patients [25 percent]), as was cognitive decline (15 of[nejm.org] Other effective techniques to promote relaxation include slow rotational movements of the extremities and trunk, rhythmic initiation, diaphragmatic breathing, and meditation[scientiaricerca.com] Unlike Parkinson disease, corticospinal tract lesions cause Paresis (weakness or paralysis), preferentially in distal antigravity muscles Hyperreflexia Extensor plantar responses[merckmanuals.com]
