Significant and multiple beats of clonus in the left foot of a patient also found to have a positive Babinski (upgoing toes). This is a male patient. Sorry the cell phone camera doesn't do this justice.

Update (just before mid-2007): This patient has cervical spinal canal stenosis with myelopathy with subsequent upper motor neuron findings as you can see. He is scheduled for spine surgery to hopefully correct the compression of the spinal cord and resolve some of his neck pain and radicular symptoms.

**Update as of March 2008: This patient ultimately had significant cervical stenosis causing his upper motor neuron signs but did not have his operation (for various reasons which cannot be described to protect patient privacy). He fell, about a year after these videos, and suddenly could not move all 4 extremities. He was taken for emergent decompressive surgery for his cervical spinal cord. Despite rapid intervention, he is now suffering from a central cord syndrome: he can move his legs better than his arms, but in his case, he is functionally a tetraplegic (quadriplegic - the old term). See eMedicine.com for an article on central cord syndrome.
