Unilateral Ankle Clonus

I will be going back to my Neuro for my follow up for unilateral ankle clonus.  Are there any particular conditions/diseases I should keep in mind when I have my appointment?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Ankle clonus is usually due to upper motor neurone lesion, which leads to loss of the inhibition of muscle contraction. It can occur due to strokes and tumors, and also due to multiple sclerosis. Therapy is based on evaluating the cause and treating the same. In the meantime physical therapy may help.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
