It occurs in 1 (severe) to 8 (mild) cases/million per year.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Subacute posttraumatic ascending myelopathy (SPAM) is a rare event that occurs after spinal cord trauma or ischemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spasticity is characterized as hyperreflexia and hypertonicity as a result of damage to the supraspinal tracts in the aftermath of SCI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

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

  • Spinal Epidural Hematoma

    The SSEH should be considered as one of the important differential diagnoses in patients who have developed acute myelopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At the neurological examination, he was found to have tetra-hyposthenia with tetra-hyperreflexia.[em-consulte.com] 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;[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Transverse Myelitis

    Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is a common cause of myelopathy and may mimic transverse myelitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination reveals moderate paraparesis with hyperreflexia, a left extensor plantar response, impaired vibratory and proprioceptive sensation, and a sensory level at T6.[nejm.org] […] 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[slideshare.net]
