53 Possible Causes for Hypertonicity of the Lower Limbs, Osteoporosis

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type 3

    Current research activities include: heart disease in adult osteogenesis imperfecta, the effect of nutrition on bone growth in osteogenesis imperfecta, osteoporosis in Rett[books.google.ro] Apart from mild hyperreflexia, the upper limbs were normal. However, the lower limbs were markedly hypertonic with brisk reflexes and sustained ankle clonus.[jnnp.bmj.com] The Resource Center is operated by the National Osteoporosis Foundation, in collaboration with the Paget Foundation and the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation. 11/99[oif.org]
