Rossolimo phenomenon

From WikiLectures

The phenomenon can be recalled by tapping on the bellies of the fingers of the lower limb or by tapping with a hammer on the metatarsophalangeal joint in the case of a lesion of the pyramidal pathway, when a "grabbing" flexion of the fingers in the plantar direction appears. The phenomenon is classified as an irritant-flexion pyramid phenomenon.[1]
