122 Possible Causes for Neonatal Hypertonia

  • Hypoglycemia

    […] seizures, and hypertonia; the intermediate and intermittent forms present in childhood or later with acute episodes of ataxia and vomiting Applies To Disturbances of metabolism[] […] divided into classic, intermediate, intermittent, and thiamine responsive subtypes; classic form presents in the first week of life with ketoacidosis, hypoglycemia, emesis, neonatal[]

  • Hereditary Hyperekplexia

    Abstract We investigated the molecular basis of hyperekplexia (STHE), an inherited neurological disorder characterised by neonatal hypertonia and an exaggerated startle response[] Abstract Startle disease , or hyperekplexia, is characterized by an exaggerated startle reflex and neonatal hypertonia.[] Hyperekplexia was first described by Kirstein and Silfverskiold in 1958. [1] This is congenital disorder with major and minor forms. [2] Major if there are neonatal hypertonia[]

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Withdrawal from stimulant exposure is usually milder than opiate withdrawal in neonates, but abnormal sleep patterns, poor feeding, tremors, and hypertonia have been reported[] . 27 One study found that 49 percent of neonates exposed to methamphetamine exhibited such withdrawal signs, although only 4 percent required medication. 28 Phenobarbital[]

  • Postpartum Depression

    Other clinical findings include respiratory distress, cyanosis, apnea, seizures, temperature instability, feeding difficulty, vomiting, hypoglycemia, hypotonia, hypertonia[]

  • Disorder of Fructose Metabolism

    We describe a girl with neonatal hypertonia, facial trismus, absent swallowing and coughing reflexes, gastro-oesophageal reflux and sporadically elevated Krebs cycle metabolites[] High maternal fructose concentrations might have caused neonatal abnormalities.[] She is now 7 years old with good evolution; facial trismus and hypertonia reversed, but microcephaly persists.[]

  • Neonatal Jaundice

    Clinical manifestations of BIND include: poor feeding, lethargy, hypotonia, seizures, hypertonia (late), coma, and death [ 4 ].[] Fever Classification of Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia The causes of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia can be classified into three groups based on mechanism of accumulation: bilirubin[] Initial evaluation of neonatal jaundice The evaluation and risk stratification of neonates with hyperbilrubinemia is an important first step in the prevention of bilirubin-induced[]

  • Ohtahara Syndrome

    They had intractable seizures from neonatal period, dysmorphic features and hypertonia. Progressive microcephaly was also observed.[] Abstract Homozygous frameshift BRAT1 mutations were found in patients with lethal neonatal rigidity and multifocal seizure syndrome (MIM# 614498).[]

  • Physiological Neonatal Jaundice

    Fever Classification of Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia The causes of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia can be classified into three groups based on mechanism of accumulation: bilirubin[] […] feeding Opisthotonos High-frequency hearing loss High-pitched cry Seizures Paralysis of upward gaze Hypotonia Apnea Dental dysplasia Oculogyric crisis Mild mental retardation Hypertonia[]
