133 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Brainstem Reflexes, Skeletal Muscle Fasciculation

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    […] tendon reflexes, and Babinski signs.[neuropathology-web.org] Symptoms may include hypotonia (severely reduced muscle tone), diminished limb movements, lack of tendon reflexes, fasciculations, tremors, swallowing and feeding difficulties[web.archive.org] It is a fatal disorder and is characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness and wasting or atrophy (ie, amyotrophy), spasticity, and fasciculations as a result of[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Abstract A marked increase of cases of amphetamine intoxication has been witnessed in Taiwan over the past two years, and poisoning accounts for the direct cause of death in some cases of them. We report a case of 30-year-old woman, who developed immobility, rigidity, mutism and staring after the intake of four[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brachial Plexus Neuropathy

    We describe brachial plexus neuropathy with high-dose cytarabine (Ara-C) therapy in a man who had acute monoblastic leukemia. Signs and symptoms of brachial plexus neuropathy appeared on two occasions within hours of exposure to high-dose Ara-C. Central nervous system complications have been described following[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Symptoms of SMA type I include hypotonia (reduced muscle tone), diminished limb movements, lack of tendon reflexes, fasciculations, swallowing and feeding difficulties, and[ninds.nih.gov] These children also develop scoliosis (curvature of the spine) or other skeletal abnormalities as they get older.[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Spinal cord infarction is a rare entity of varying etiology although most often associated with atherosclerotic aortic disease. Definitive diagnosis of (idiopathic) spinal cord infarction in the acute stage and in the absence of demonstrable predisposing factors is not always possible even with MRI. Diffusion-weighted[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
