Palmomentalis reflex (PMR) is a superficial polysynaptic, primitive reflex seen in normal population with higher incidence at the extreme of ages. It is exaggerated in upper motor neuron lesions involving corticobulbar tracts. We describe palmolevator labii superioris reflex - new variant palmomentalis reflex. The mechanism, pathway and diagnostic applications of PMR are discussed on recent studies.
