16 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Brainstem Reflexes, Rapid Progression, Spastic Paralysis

  • Infantile-Onset Ascending Hereditary Spastic Paralysis

    Infantile Ascending Hereditary Spastic Paralysis - How is Infantile Ascending Hereditary Spastic Paralysis abbreviated?[acronyms.thefreedictionary.com] Like previously described cases, the patient presented with severe spastic paraparesis and showed rapid progression of paresis to the upper limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Autosomal Recessive Lower Motor Neuron Disease with Childhood Onset

    Infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paralysis (IAHSP) is characterized by the following features [ Lesca et al 2003 ]: Onset of spasticity with increased reflexes[cmm.ucsd.edu] Disease progression was rapid, and the majority of patients died from respiratory failure within 1–5 years after onset of disease.[link.springer.com] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Progressive Muscular Atrophy

    In this latter class spastic paralysis precedes the wasting, and Charcot has applied the designation Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to such cases.[chestofbooks.com] […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org] Rapid progression and typical ubiquitinated inclusions in lower motor neurons were present in 77 (95%) of the cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    There are also rare progressive, autosomal recessive upper motor neuron degenerations (Infantile –Onset Ascending Hereditary Spastic Paralysis, Juvenile Primary Lateral Sclerosis[neuropathology-web.org] Both cases showed rapid progression to mutism within a few years. Neuropathologically, frontal lobe degeneration including the precentral gyrus was observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infantile-onset ascending hereditary spastic paralysis is associated with mutations in the alsin gene.
