24 Possible Causes for Spasticity Mostly in Lower Limbs

  • Cerebral Palsy

    Lower limbs are mostly involved, resulting in diplegia or just single leg paralysis.[symptoma.com] The lowest level of motor control is voluntary movement in a general flexion (mostly present in the upper limbs) or extension pattern (mostly present in the lower limbs).[web.archive.org] Spastic cerebral palsy This is by far the most common type of cerebral palsy accounting for around 70% of cases. It presents with stiff or spastic muscles.[symptoma.com]

  • Lathyrism

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    The later are associated with a variety of other neurological and systemic abnormalities, whereas the former essentially present with lower limb weakness and spasticity.[scielo.br] Most cases of pure HSP are autosomal dominant, while complicated forms are inherited mostly as autosomal recessive conditions.[scielo.br]

It's related to autism.[icd10data.com] There is an intermediate period of relative stable mental status, sometimes lasting several decades, which is followed by further neurological degradation, marked mainly by spasticity[icd10data.com]
