61 Possible Causes for Hyporeflexia in the Lower Limbs, Quadriplegia

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Lower motor neurone signs in the upper limbs (atrophy, hyporeflexia).[] Paraplegia and quadriplegia The main difference between paraplegia and quadriplegia relates to the extent of paralysis and loss of feeling in the limbs.[] The following are the main types of classifications: Quadriplegia (quad means four). This involves loss of movement and sensation in all four limbs (arms and legs).[]

  • Brain Abscess

    The incidence of brain abscess is higher among immunosuppressed patients. We report a case of a brain abscess in the temporal lobe in a patient under treatment with adalimumab and methotrexate, who developed radiological worsening. Clinical remission was essential to suspect Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory[…][]

  • Ataxia-Oculomotor Apraxia Syndrome

    […] axonal sensory polyneuropathy distal sensory loss (predominantly in lower limbs) Muscle Soft Tissue: distal muscle atrophy, predominantly lower limbs distal muscle weakness[] All affected individuals have generalized areflexia followed by a peripheral neuropathy and quadriplegia with loss of ambulation about seven to ten years after onset.[] […] synopsis from OMIM: 58 Head And Neck Eyes: nystagmus oculomotor apraxia slow saccades impaired ocular movements head-eye lag Neurologic Peripheral Nervous System: areflexia hyporeflexia[]

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Within days, flaccid limbs become spastic and hyporeflexia (underactive nerve responses) turns into hyperreflexia (overactive nerve responses) and extensor plantar nerve responses[] Permanent quadriplegia is a complication of cricotracheal resection with chin-to-chest sutures and should be included in the informed consent process.[] We treated an 8-year-old girl who developed quadriplegia after surgery for a fourth ventricular ependymoma.[]

  • Spinal Cord Transection

    Lower motor neurone signs in the upper limbs (atrophy, hyporeflexia).[] […] of Cephalic Delivery Abstract A newborn infant, delivered following mid-forceps rotation, presented with apnoea, anaesthesia below the level of the mid-neck, and flaccid quadriplegia[] The following are the main types of classifications: quadriplegia (quad means four) - involves loss of movement and sensation in all four limbs (arms and legs).[]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

    Lower motor neurone signs in the upper limbs (atrophy, hyporeflexia).[] Paraplegia, paralysis below the waist, or quadriplegia, loss of sensation and paralysis below the neck, may also affect people with spinal cord lesions.[] […] of the spine injured patient : - steroid protocol : - note that steroids should only be given when all of the strict guidelines for infusion are met Incomplete traumatic quadriplegia[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Physical examination confirmed lower left facial palsy and paresthesia of his extremities with hyporeflexia of his lower limbs and sensory loss of all four extremities.[] RESULTS: A 41-year-old man presented with aggressive speech difficulty, dysphagia, right blepharoptosis, and quadriplegia following coma.[] Two patients with cerebral hemorrhagic stroke developed progressive flaccid quadriplegia and life-threatening dyspnea in acute stage.[]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    He presented with progressive spastic paraplegia, hypereflexia in the upper limbs with hyporeflexia in the lower limbs. There was dysdiadochokinesis.[] He was never able to move without assistance because of severe spastic quadriplegia with distal dominant muscle weakness.[] A 29-year-old man developed progressive spastic quadriplegia from early childhood with dysarthria, ataxia, dysphagia, and intellectual delay, but he displayed no nystagmus[]

  • Cervical Cord Compression

    Lower motor neurone signs in the upper limbs (atrophy, hyporeflexia).[] The concern is that a minor trauma, such as a fall, may result in a major neurologic injury (paraplegia or quadriplegia).[] Spinal Cord Injury with Transient Quadriplegia or Quadriparesis Much more serious neck injury can result in quadriplegia or quadriparesis.[]

  • Respiratory Muscle Paralysis

    […] weakness is of a lower–motor neuron pattern, with flaccid tone, areflexia, or hyporeflexia.[] We use term paraplegia / paraparesis in paralysis of lower limbs, hemiplegia / hemiparesis in paralysis of the left or right half of the body and quadriplegia / quadruparesis[] She was again admitted a year later with severe quadriplegia and hypokalemia (1.7 mEq/L).[]
