644 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia, Myelopathy

  • Meningitis

    Eur Spine J Sep, 2015 We suggest that decompression surgery should be carried out as early as possible for patients with early spinal myelopathy or paraplegia caused by a[] ,et al, 2017 Myelopathy in Behcets Disease: The Bagel Sign Ann Neurol 82:288-298, Uygunoglu, U.[] IgG4-related Disease Presenting as Dural Thickening — A Rare Cause of Myelopathy .[]

  • Myelitis

    Spondylotic myelopathy is the commonest cause of nontraumatic myelopathy.[] The patient with detrusor hyperreflexia had an unrecordable CMCT-TA.[] Inflammatory myelopathy is an inflammatory neurological disorder of the spinal cord (myelopathy). It occurs in 1 (severe) to 8 (mild) cases/million per year.[]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Subacute posttraumatic ascending myelopathy (SPAM) is a rare event that occurs after spinal cord trauma or ischemia.[] Spasticity is characterized as hyperreflexia and hypertonicity as a result of damage to the supraspinal tracts in the aftermath of SCI.[] We reported a patient with C5 [S(C5/C6)] ASIA Impairment Scale C SCI due to cervical myelopathy who presented CO2 retention when taking a therapeutic dosage of pregabalin.[]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    The ideal treatment, therefore, depends on the situation, and the most acute treatment possible is necessary in patients presenting with myelopathy.[] Physical examination revealed hyperreflexia and a T11 sensory level. MRI revealed a pseudomeningocele compressing the thoracic spinal cord.[] Lhermitte's sign (intermittent shooting electrical sensation) and hyperreflexia may be present.[]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    This type of myelopathy hand they have termed "amyotrophic type of myelopathy hand."[] Eleven patients (58%) had lower limb hyperreflexia or Babinski sign.[] In an otherwise asymptomatic patient, hyperreflexia, a positive Babinski test, and a positive Hoffman’s sign (hand contraction in response to tapping on distal finger joints[]

  • Spinal Metastasis

    The first case of a gallbaldder carcinoma with metastasis to dura and epidural space causing myelopathy is described.[] […] arising either during the night and early morning or due to movement, is by far the most frequently reported symptom, accompanied by pain or weakness in the extremities, hyperreflexia[] Known complications of radiosurgery to spinal column tumors include radiation myelopathy and delayed vertebral compression fractures; however, the concept of pseudoprogression[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    We herein report a case of Human T-lymphotropic virus type-I (HTLV-I)-associated myelopathy with bulbar palsy-type amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like symptoms.[] […] remains normal Physical exam neck ptosis (neck drop) due to neck extensor weakness manual muscle testing elicits muscle cramping upper motor neuron (UMN) signs spasticity hyperreflexia[] Radiation-induced myelopathy Type 1 Excludes myelopathy NOS ( G95.9 ) paralysis G12.20 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code G12.20 Motor neuron disease, unspecified 2016 2017 2018 2019[]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    Cervical myelopathy can unfortunately not be prevented.[] Gait dysfunction associated with spasticity and hyperreflexia is a primary symptom in patients with compression of cervical spinal cord.[] Diabetes may affect the typical physical findings associated with cervical spondylotic myelopathy, as coexisting diabetic neuropathy may dampen expected hyperreflexia and[]

  • Spinal Epidural Hematoma

    The SSEH should be considered as one of the important differential diagnoses in patients who have developed acute myelopathy.[] At the neurological examination, he was found to have tetra-hyposthenia with tetra-hyperreflexia.[] Myelopathy was the most common surgical indication (n 293; 55.4%), with the largest subset of patients undergoing decompression with or without instrumented fusion (n 266;[]

  • Transverse Myelitis

    Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is a common cause of myelopathy and may mimic transverse myelitis.[] Examination reveals moderate paraparesis with hyperreflexia, a left extensor plantar response, impaired vibratory and proprioceptive sensation, and a sensory level at T6.[] […] nonspecific viral illness) • ATM, the onset of spinal cord dysfunction usually progress in 4 hours to 21 days, the patient's signs usually plateau and evolve toward spasticity/hyperreflexia[]
