45 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia, Thenar Muscle Atrophy

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    […] groups, especially in the extremities poor or pathologic tandem gait atrophy of the hand’s thenar prominence (the fleshy fat pad just superior to the thumb on the ventral[americannursetoday.com] Eleven patients (58%) had lower limb hyperreflexia or Babinski sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Objective neurological deficit (upper motor neurone signs in the legs (eg, up-going plantars, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity); lower motor neurone signs in the arms (eg[patient.info]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    […] groups, especially in the extremities poor or pathologic tandem gait atrophy of the hand’s thenar prominence (the fleshy fat pad just superior to the thumb on the ventral[americannursetoday.com] BACKGROUND: Gait dysfunction associated with spasticity and hyperreflexia is a primary symptom in patients with compression of cervical spinal cord.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Diabetes may affect the typical physical findings associated with cervical spondylotic myelopathy, as coexisting diabetic neuropathy may dampen expected hyperreflexia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Spinal Cord Tumor

    Below that level, Upper Motor Neuron (UMN) findings are those of spasticity, hyperreflexia with upgoing Plantar reflex also called Babinski’s sign With Extradural lesion ([clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Graves Disease

    HLA-B8, Dr3 association Often incited during stress e.g. childbirth, infection, steroid withdrawal Presentation Symptoms heat intolerance weight loss hyperactive diarrhea hyperreflexia[step2.medbullets.com] Muscle wasting is present, with decreased muscle strength. Typically, atrophy of the thenar and hypothenar eminences may be observed.[emedicine.com] Additional symptoms associated with Graves’ disease include heart palpitations, slight tremors of the hands and/or fingers, hair loss, brittle nails, exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia[rarediseases.org]

  • Myelopathy

    Clinical hyperreflexia was tested at the MCP joint, using a six-axis load cell.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] groups, especially in the extremities poor or pathologic tandem gait atrophy of the hand’s thenar prominence (the fleshy fat pad just superior to the thumb on the ventral[americannursetoday.com] Symptoms and Signs Cord compression commonly causes gradual spastic paresis, paresthesias, or both in the hands and feet and may cause hyperreflexia.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Upper motor neurone signs in the lower limbs (Babinski's sign - up-going plantar reflex, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity).[patient.info] No other focal neurological deficits were found, except for bilateral hyperreflexia and twitching of the lower limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On physical examination our patient exhibited hyperreflexia and intermittent twitching in the lower extremities. He had no footdrop or saddle anesthesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Upper Motor Neuron Disease

    […] group of muscles, including the abductor pollicis brevis (APB) and first dorsal interosseous (FDI), when compared to the abductor digit minimi (ADM) [Figure 1]. 14,22 This[acnr.co.uk] No spasticity or hyperreflexia.[brainscape.com] Examination reveals UMN signs in the legs (weakness, spasticity, pathological reflexes, hyperreflexia), although reflexes may also be brisk in the arms.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Spastic Paraplegia Type 38, Autosomal Dominant

    Affiliated tissues include spinal cord , and related phenotypes are hyperreflexia and cognitive impairment[malacards.org] 60 Very frequent (99-80%) 8 difficulty standing 33 HP:0003698 Symptoms via clinical synopsis from OMIM: 58 Neurologic Central Nervous System: spasticity hyperreflexia clonus[malacards.org] Hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSP) comprise a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterised by progressive spasticity and hyperreflexia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Triple A Syndrome

    […] syndrome with prominent neurological dysfunctions/deficits, including distal muscular atrophy, progressive muscle weakness and wasting of both legs, sensibility dysfunction, hyperreflexia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neurological evaluation revealed absent gag and palatal reflex with thenar and hypothenar muscles atrophy.[webmedcentral.com] Both patients showed delayed developmental milestones and neurological dysfunctions (motor and sensory demyelinating neuropathy, marked hyperreflexia, calves hypothrophy,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
