Answer

Other neurologic findings include the following:

  • Changes in deep tendon reflexes, which may be either intact or diminished

  • Incoordination due to muscle weakness

  • Absence of pathologic reflexes and normal findings on sensory and gait examinations

  • Normal results on mental status examination

See Clinical Presentation for more detail.
