1,355 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia

  • Meningitis

    Checklists can standardize patient care, reduce errors, and improve health outcomes. For meningitis in resource-limited settings, with high patient loads and limited financial resources, central nervous system diagnostic algorithms may be useful to guide diagnosis and treatment. However, the cost effectiveness of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Drug-induced Fever

    Serotonin syndrome is identified by a clinical triad: neuromuscular abnormalities (including tremor, rigidity, clonus and hyperreflexia), mental status changes and autonomic[acphospitalist.org]

  • Dementia

    Clinical examination revealed several elements of a frontal lobe dysfunction including apathy with motor impersistence, presence of primitive reflexes, generalized hyperreflexia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 11

    The fact that hyperreflexia may be detected in regions of muscle atrophy is considered to be highly indicative of ALS.[symptoma.com] Additionally, ALS causes hyperreflexia and an increase of muscle tone. Those so-called pyramidal signs may predominate the clinical picture in case of ALS11.[symptoma.com] Hyperreflexia and an increase of muscle tone are most typical and may be detected in muscles of face, larynx and pharynx (bulbar region), neck, arms, and diaphragm (cervical[symptoma.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 7

    The fact that hyperreflexia may be detected in regions of muscle atrophy is considered to be highly indicative of ALS.[symptoma.com] Hyperreflexia and an increase of muscle tone are most characteristic and may be detected in muscles of face, larynx and pharynx (bulbar region), neck, arms, and diaphragm[symptoma.com] Besides these lower motor neuron signs, upper motor neuron signs are characteristic of ALS: ALS patients suffer from hyperreflexia and present with an increased muscle tone[symptoma.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 9

    Additional symptoms typical of ALS, such as fasciculations, spasticity, and hyperreflexia, have also been described in ALS9 patients.[symptoma.com] Progressive lower and upper motor neuron loss results in bulbar palsy, muscle weakness followed by atrophy, hyperreflexia and an increase of muscle tone.[symptoma.com]

  • 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] […] 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] Neurological examination at age 67 disclosed pseudobulbar palsy, spastic gait, hyperreflexia, and presence of bilateral Hoffmann and Babinski signs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autosomal Dominant Spastic Paraplegia Type 8

    Get Update Overview Spastic paraplegia-8 is an autosomal dominant neurologic disorder characterized by adult onset of progressive lower limb spasticity and hyperreflexia resulting[diseaseinfosearch.org] Symptoms include hyperreflexia, extensor plantar responses, degeneration of the lateral corticospinal tracts, decreased vibratory sense in the lower limbs, pes cavus and atrophy[cags.org.ae] People with this condition may also have hyperreflexia, decreased ability to feel vibrations, muscular atrophy and decreased bladder control.[ivami.com]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 12

    Abstract In a Chinese family with Spinocerebellar ataxia type 12 (SCA12), presenting with action tremor, mild cerebellar dysfunction, and hyperreflexia, genetic testing revealed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subsequent development of ataxia and hyperreflexia suggests spinocerebellar ataxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract SCA12 is an autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia characterized by onset in the fourth decade of life with action tremor of arms and head, mild ataxia, dysmetria, and hyperreflexia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 8

    Pyramidal signs such as hyperreflexia have only been described in one single patient.[symptoma.com]
