  • Autosomal Dominant Larsen Syndrome

    After anterior and posterior cervical fusion, his preoperative symptoms of weakness, gait dysfunction, and hyperreflexia have improved at 9-month follow-up.[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Some patients develop frank joint contractures and many are unable to make a tight fist due to inflexibility of the interphalangeal joints.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] […] vestibulo-ocular reflex Adrenal insufficiency Fatigue Coma Renal insufficiency Increased CSF lactate Blindness Cerebellar atrophy Tics Encephalopathy Intrauterine growth retardation Hyperreflexia[mendelian.co]

  • Apraxia

    Hyperreflexia, defined as exaggerated deep tendon reflexes elicited with minimal stimulus, or pathological spread of reflexes, was recorded in each patient.[journals.plos.org] People with ideokinetic apraxia are unable to perform certain acts (e.g., whistling or making a fist) upon command but are able to do so automatically.[britannica.com] Examination of the Ataxic Patient It is important that ataxia be distinguished from weakness, loss of fractionated movements, hyperreflexia or hypertonia, and higher-order[doi.org]
