58 Possible Causes for Hyperreflexia, Unilateral Arm Weakness

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    It is typically unilateral. Numbness and weakness follow the same distribution. Some patients will exhibit signs and symptoms of radiculopathy and myelopathy.[aafp.org] Eleven patients (58%) had lower limb hyperreflexia or Babinski sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[americannursetoday.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Patient A was a 71-year-old man who presented with unilateral arm weakness and wasting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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[orthobullets.com] The upper motor signs include spasticity, hyperreflexia and weakness. The lower motor signs include amyotrophy, weakness and fasciculations.[symptoma.com]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    Atrophy may be present, but hyperreflexia and spasticity are not seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MMN can usually be distinguished from ALS by its more slowly progressive disease course, the absence of upper-motor-neuron signs such as spasticity and hyperreflexia and the[mmcneuro.wordpress.com] Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, extensor plantar response).[clinicaltrials.gov]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Affected individuals may have tremors, muscle stiffness (spasticity), exaggerated reflexes (hyperreflexia), weakness or partial paralysis of the muscles of the limbs, difficulty[icdlist.com]

  • Cervical Spine Disease

    Patients most frequently present with hyperreflexia (21%) and weakness (21%), and there were various conservative treatment strategies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is typically unilateral. Numbness and weakness follow the same distribution. Some patients will exhibit signs and symptoms of radiculopathy and myelopathy.[aafp.org] Upper motor neurone signs in the lower limbs (Babinski's sign - up-going plantar reflex, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity).[patient.info]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Neurologic examination revealed severe right leg weakness with hyperreflexia, ankle clonus, and a questionable plantar response.[thefreelibrary.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Irritative or obstructive bladder symptoms, as a result of spinal lesions causing detrusor hyperreflexia and incomplete bladder emptying, can be treated with oral anticholinergic[aetna.com]

  • Stroke

    Rheumatoid meningitis presenting with a stroke-like attack (RMSA) is a rare manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). When the patients arrive within the time-window for recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) infusion therapy, no diagnostic protocol has been established. A 55-year-old woman was brought[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Glioma

    Transduction of foreign molecules into cells is an important technique to investigate the functions of corresponding molecules and/or targets. Recently, a mass-producible nanoprinting perforator was devised enabling for large-scale, high-performance drug or nucleic-acid transfer into cells without cell damage. Since[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mononeuritis Multiplex

    CNS Upper motor neuron signs (spasticity, hyperreflexia, upgoing plantar reflexes) are usually seen distal to the lesion.[clinicaladvisor.com]
