11 Possible Causes for Intermittent Slow Activity, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Hyponatremia

    They are primarily central nervous system (CNS) manifestations, such as irritability, restlessness, lethargy, muscular twitching, spasticity and hyperreflexia, all of which[]

  • Hydrocephalus

    , hyperreflexia Changes in vital signs resulting from brainstem compression due to herniation Because the fontanelles of infants are still open, the accumulation of CSF can[] […] percentile growth chart) Tense fontanelle Setting sun sign : persistent downward deviation of the eyes due to increased ICP in infants and young children Lower extremity spasticity[]

  • Familial Infantile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Conclusions: XMESID is a rare X-linked recessive myoclonic epilepsy with spasticity and intellectual disability in boys. Hyperreflexia is found in carrier women.[] EEG during the first years of life remained without clear epileptic discharges but showed slowing of background activity.[] Hyperreflexia was observed in obligate carrier women.[]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    , hyperreflexia Changes in vital signs resulting from brainstem compression Ultrasonography Indication: clinical suspicion during antenatal period or in infants 6 months[] Her EEG showed bilateral frontal intermittent slow activity.[] Mild dementia, spastic gait and hyperreflexia were observed on neurological examinations.[]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    Neurological examination at age 67 disclosed pseudobulbar palsy, spastic gait, hyperreflexia, and presence of bilateral Hoffmann and Babinski signs.[] On examination, she had vertical upgaze palsy and downgaze slowing, intermittent myoclonic jerks of the hand and mild symmetrical bradykinesia with axial rigidity.[] By 1997, she had developed postural instability with falls, urinary incontinence and mild cognitive impairment interfering with some daily activities such as cooking.[]

  • Cerebrotendinous Xanthomatosis

    Clinical examination revealed spastic paraparesis with gait ataxia, hyperreflexia of deep tendon reflexes with bilateral Babinski and Hoffmann signs, and mental retardation[] EEG showed diffuse slow wave activity with intermittent discharges at varied places.[]

  • Episodic Ataxia

    […] and spasticity, extracerebellar signs commonly seen with other SCA syndromes.[] EEG may be characterized by intermittent and generalized slow activity, frequently intermingled with spikes.[] , spasticity Impaired vibration sense CTG expansion 100-250 (15-52 normal range) 13q21 KLHL1AS Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA9) SCA9 has not yet been characterized. -- -- Spinocerebellar[]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Clinical features of sCJD include myoclonic jerks, memory deficits, cerebellar signs (ataxia, nystagmus, tremors), pyramidal/corticospinal tract dysfunctions (spasticity,[] These include periodic lateralising epileptiform discharges in encephalitis, frontal intermittent delta activity in toxic–metabolic or structural abnormalities (if asymmetrical[] The disease was characterized by hyperreflexia, progressive spastic gait disorder, extensor plantar responses and mental retardation in all of the affected members of the[]

  • Neurosyphilis

  • Extrapyramidal Disorder

    Patients will complain of distal paresthesias and weakness of the extremities followed by spastic paresis and ataxia.[] 66.  Slow 2-3Hz rhythmic alternating movement resemble tremor  Wide spread involvement, may involved multiple body parts  Absent during sleep  May be intermittent or[] On exam there is a combined deficit of vibration and proprioception with pyramidal signs (plantar extension and hyperreflexia).[]
