236 Possible Causes for Loss of Ankle Reflexes

  • Spinal Metastasis

    Echocardiography revealed a left atrial tumor in a 59-year-old man with back pain that concurrently worsened with left foot drop and loss of the left ankle reflex soon after[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    The hallmark of a peripheral nerve disease is loss of ankle reflex. This is when your doctor hits your Achilles tendon and there is no reflex.[hillandponton.com] , usually beginning in one’s fingers and toes Fatigue Loss of deep tendon reflexes such as associated with knee and ankle jerk The signs and symptoms of CIDP may be preceded[dovemed.com] […] of deep tendon reflex in the legs and arms.[hillandponton.com]

  • Podofilox

    , absent ankle reflexes, decreased response to painful stimuli.[robholland.com] […] systemic toxicity (sometimes fatal), sensorimotor neuropathy (reversible), symptomatic orthostatic hypotension, paresthesias and weakness of extremities, stocking-glove sensory loss[robholland.com]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    […] was restricted to the ankle reflexes.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] By the tenth day, she developed loss of ankle reflexes bilaterally. Paradoxically, at this time, the biceps, triceps and jaw reflexes were brisk.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] […] patient presented rather unusually in that her facial nerve paralysis preceded any significant areflexia in the peripheral limbs, the so called 'descending variant' and loss[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Small-Fiber Neuropathy

    The main features were burning, painful paresthesias and dysesthesias in the feet, lancinating pains, moderate to severe distal small fiber sensory loss, absent ankle reflexes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All but 2 had mild loss of vibration sense but none had significant proprioceptive loss or sensory ataxia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Isoniazid

    Three months later she developed severe motor weakness of lower limbs with loss of ankle and knee reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neurological Disorder

  • Cutaneous Vasculitis

    Four had documented ataxia and/or mild sensory loss with increased patellar but diminished ankle reflexes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Early-Onset Cerebellar Ataxia

    The association of brisk jerks and absent ankle reflexes may occur.[orpha.net] loss.[orpha.net] EOCARR is characterized by dysarthria, gait ataxia, nystagmus, brisk tendon reflexes in the upper and lower limbs, absent ankle reflexes, and discrete or absent deep sensory[orpha.net]

  • Autosomal Dominant Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 1A

    In a large family, the associated complaints were contractures at the heel, loss of ankle jerk reflex, and problems with articulation.[symptoma.com] A nasal dysarthria is common, as are decreased or absent ankle deep tendon reflexes, usually accompanied by Achilles tendon contractures.[link.springer.com] Progression is slow, leading to loss of ambulation only after 20 years and not in all patients.[link.springer.com]
