511 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Brainstem Reflexes, Pyramidal Tract Signs

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    Increased deep tendon reflex (DTR) Pronator drift [3] Corticospinal/pyramidal tract [ edit ] These are the neural tracts which descend in the ventral horn of the spinal cord[] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[] The presence of the Babinski sign after 12 months is the sign of a non-specific upper motor neuron lesion.[]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Abstract The prevalence of dementia in the Western world in people over the age of 60 has been estimated to be greater than 5%, about two-thirds of which are due to Alzheimer’s disease 1, 2, 3, 4. The age-specific prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease nearly doubles every 5 years after age 65, leading to a[…][]

  • Stroke

    Your doctor will diagnose a stroke based on your signs and symptoms, your medical history, a physical exam, and test results. Your doctor will want to find out the type of stroke you’ve had, its cause, the part of the brain that's affected, and whether you have bleeding in the brain. If your doctor thinks you’ve[…][]

  • Pallidopyramidal Syndrome

    […] of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism with pyramidal tract signs has been known as pallido-pyramidal or parkinsonian-pyramidal syndrome since the first description by[] Abstract Background: The combination of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism with pyramidal tract signs has been known as pallido-pyramidal or parkinsonian-pyramidal syndrome[] The phenotype associated with FBXO7 mutations consisted of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism and pyramidal tract signs, thereby matching clinically the pallido-pyramidal[]

  • Hernia

    A hernia occurs when an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall. A hernia usually develops between your chest and hips. In many cases, it causes no or very few symptoms, although you may notice a swelling or lump in your tummy (abdomen) or groin. The lump can[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). Extensive and repeated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations showed only diffuse abnormality in brain and spinal cord, but no focal lesions. We propose[…][]

  • Brain Stem Infarction

    Brain stem infarction is a potentially life-threatening condition which develops due to focal ischemia of the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. It results in neurologic deficits involving the respiratory, cardiovascular, speech, swallowing, hearing and ocular movement centers located within the brain stem. Diagnosis is[…][]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Toxicological investigations were performed on an intracerebral hematoma, antemortem blood, and postmortem blood of an individual who was found unresponsive in his home. The hematoma was found to have ethanol at a concentration of 0.05% (w/v), and benzoylecgonine (a cocaine metabolite) was also confirmed at a[…][]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    A few studies using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) have demonstrated recovery of injured corticoreticulospinal tract (CRT) in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage and infarct. However, no study reported on a patient who showed peri-infarct reorganization of an injured CRT following a middle cerebral[…][]

  • Hemiparesis

    Also, myoclonus or tremor is seen in up to 38% patients, hyperreflexia and other pyramidal tract signs in 85% patients and psychosis, visual hallucinations and paranoid delusions[] ., Kuroiwa, T. (2008) Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Chronic Subdural Hematoma: Correlation between Clinical Signs and Fractional Anisotropy in the Pyramidal Tract.[] Abstract Ataxic hemiparesis (AH) is characterized by the simultaneous presence of a pyramidal tract syndrome with homolateral ataxic syndrome.[]
