59 Possible Causes for Hyporeflexia of the Upper Limbs

  • Hypertensive Crisis

    upper and lower limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a case of a 62-year-old woman presented to the emergency department for hypertensive crisis with symmetric flaccid paralysis, hypotonia and hyporeflexia of both[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    limbs and hyporeflexia in the lower limbs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Manual muscle examination showed distal weakness of right upper limb muscles, severe on abductor pollicis brevis and extensor pollicis longus, and milder on interossei, finger[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] examination revealed severe atrophy of right thenar muscles, flexion contractures on the right elbow, wrist and fingers, bilateral calf hypertrophy, myotatic areflexia in the upper[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    The patient clinical picture included gait impairment, global hyporeflexia, proximal muscle atrophy of upper limbs, deviation of the uvula to right during phonation and tongue[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Lower motor neurone signs in the upper limbs (atrophy, hyporeflexia).[patient.info] Upper motor neurone signs in the lower limbs (Babinski's sign - up-going plantar reflex, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity).[patient.info] Lhermitte's sign (flexing the neck causes electric shock-like sensations that extend down the spine and shoot into the limbs).[patient.info]

  • Neck Pain

    Lower motor neuron signs in the upper limbs (atrophy, hyporeflexia).[patient.info] Upper motor neuron signs in the lower limbs (Babinski's sign: upgoing plantar reflex, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity).[patient.info] Neurological signs: Lhermitte's sign: flexion of the neck causes an electric shock-type sensation that radiates down the spine and into the limbs.[patient.info]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    One patient had grade IV/V on MRC scale weakness in upper limbs with hyporeflexia and distal paresthesias in upper limbs and hyper-reflexia in lower limbs.[vdocuments.us] 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In contrast to Ropper's cases, sensory disturbance in the upper limbs was also noted in nearly two-thirds of patients in the more recent series. 2 Some patients also displayed[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Cerebral Cortical Atrophy

    […] of upper limbs Developmental stagnation Ovoid thoracolumbar vertebrae Pallor Dense calvaria Nystagmus Abnormal facial shape Blindness Inguinal hernia Midface retrusion Hernia[mendelian.co] […] stenosis Metabolic acidosis Aciduria Spontaneous abortion Oligohydramnios Aortic valve stenosis Cardiomegaly Cardiac arrest Severe failure to thrive Severe lactic acidosis Hyporeflexia[mendelian.co]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    Tendon hyporeflexia in both the upper and lower extremities were observed, and the bilateral Babinski sign was negative.[alliedacademies.org] In addition, there was mild upper limb incoordination and bilateral ptosis despite preserved motor power. Brain MRI was unremarkable. Examination of CSF was normal.[dx.doi.org] Urinary Retention Hx of rapidly progressive bilateral leg weakness e.g. after a diarrhoea illness 3-4 weeks before Examn: - Lower limb LMN signs Hyporeflexia Flaccid paralysis[brainscape.com]

  • Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy

    , no upper limb muscle weakness, forearm extension limited to 150/160 and preserved spinal column mobility.[elsevier.pt] Assessment of the patient's brother, aged 21, revealed an irregular heart beat on cardiac auscultation, and neurological study identified myotatic hyporeflexia, mild atrophy[elsevier.pt]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Lower motor neurone signs in the upper limbs (atrophy, hyporeflexia).[patient.info] Upper motor neurone signs in the lower limbs (Babinski's sign: up-going plantar reflex, hyperreflexia, clonus, spasticity).[patient.info] Neurological signs: Lhermitte's sign: flexion of the neck causes an electric shock-type sensation that radiates down the spine and into the limbs.[patient.info]
