Name the 2 signs exhibited here? & Explain the significance of them?
⦁ Hyperreflexia
⦁ Ankle Clonus
⦁ These signs are characteristics of Upper motor neuron dysfunction (e.g. due to stroke, trauma, cerebral palsy, or multiple sclerosis).
⦁ However when there is no signs of paresis/paralysis + presence of Bilateral ankle clonus and hyperreflexia then Serotonin syndrome is strongly suggested.
