As the severity progresses to life-threatening, the clonus
may convert from inducible to spontaneous and slow, continuous lateral eye movements may be present.
DAKOTA has cerebral palsy and suffers from seizures, global developmental disorder and muscle disorders clonus
(4) It is well known that PTZ, at doses of 90 to 100 mg/kg, creates generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCs) in rodents which progress from mild myoclonic jerks to the clonus
of the face and forelimbs without righting reflex loss, to the clonic seizures of the limbs with righting reflex loss, to the full tonic extension of both forelimbs and hind limbs.
The Achilles reflexes were absent in both lower extremities, and no pathological reflexes were noted (i.e., Babinski, ankle clonus
Stages of seizure activity were; (0) no difference; (1) freezing; (2) tongue protrusion and neck spasms; (3) forelimb clonus
; (4) forelimb clonus
and tonic activity in the upper part of the body with rearing and/or falling over; (5) generalized convulsions with rearing, falling over and jumping.
Physical examination revealed that upper motor neuron findings were identified in the form of spasticity, hyperreflexia, and clonus
. Hyperreflexia and spasticity were present all over the upper and lower limbs but more marked in lower than upper limbs.
Left LL--in initial testing it has a deficit paretic motor, ROT vii, Babinski present, possible orthostatism with bilateral support; in final testing - paretic motor deficit, motor control partially recovered - distal, Ashworth spasticity = 2 plantar flexors, plantar clonus
(2-3 muscular contractions), Achilles tendon retraction, Babinski present, ROT vii, genu flexum(flexed knee) 20[degrees], Left side hip - limited mobility : ROE = 30[degrees], ROI = absent, flexion = 90[degrees], absent abduction and extension, abduction = 15[degrees].
Mid-August, during a dressing change, the intern doctor noted clonus
of the lower limbs and investigated thoroughly.
In the chronic stage of capsular hemiplegia, H reflex and even the tendon reflex are elicited in pretibial muscles in addition to hyperactive tendon reflex with ankle clonus
in the triceps surae muscles.
Facial Muscle Spasm (FMS) refers to the stiffness or clonus
of muscles controlled by homolateral facial nerves, which is painless, intermittent, unspontaneous and irregular.
