632 Possible Causes for Abnormal Gait, Joint Stiffness, Progressive Contractures

  • Arthritis

    This case report describes the findings of a previously healthy pediatric patient with acute onset of knee swelling and abnormal gait.[] Flexion contractures may require intensive exercise, casting, or immobilization (eg, splinting) in progressively more stretched-open positions.[] Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. The main symptoms are joint pain, swelling and stiffness.[]

  • Osteoarthritis

    walking or bending the joint Some patients with osteoarthritis also develop a bone spur (a bony protrusion) at the affected joint.[] Another characteristic symptom of the disease is the progressive incapacity of the joint to function, leading – in the long run – to loss of mobility.[] The absolute reduction in finger joint stiffness for the exercise group, compared with the control group, was 7% (3% to 10%).[]

  • Polyarthritis

    A 72-year-old retired Caucasian man arrived at the emergency department with confusion, a temperature of 101 F, difficulty walking, leukocytosis, and diffuse joint aches.[] The characteristic rapid progression of palmar contracture is a key finding that suggests the potential existence of a malignancy. [Indexed for MEDLINE] Free full text[] OBJECTIVES: Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) or unspecified polyarthritis (UA) deal with several symptoms such as joint stiffness, pain,[]

  • Internal Joint Prosthesis Broken

    These maneuvers lead to an abnormal gait and require extra effort and concentration.[] As one progresses distally to the midthigh level, it is increasingly difficult to compensate prosthetically for a hip flexion contracture.[] Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint. It causes pain, stiffness, and swelling.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Hypermobile joints and an abnormal gait with a tendency to fall may also be presenting features.[] ; hip containment surgeries; corrective osteotomy for progressive valgus deformity at the knee; posterior spinal fusion Multispecialty care is mandatory for these patients[] Twelve patients had a waddling gait. Four patients were partially wheelchair-dependent and ten patients had limitations in their maximum walking distance.[]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Persons affected with RSMD1 experience difficulty walking due to thigh muscle weakness, spinal rigidity, and mild Achilles tendon tightness.[] We report the first known Egyptian patient with FCMD, established by clinical features of generalized weakness, pseudohypertrophy of calf muscles, progressive joint contractures[] CMD results in overall muscle weakness with possible joint stiffness or looseness.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 1

    Hypermobile joints and an abnormal gait with a tendency to fall may also be presenting features.[] Progressive upper airway disease leads to obstructive sleep apnoea.[] Dental abnormalities Pectus carinatum, kyphosis, scoliosis, genu valgum, hypermobile joints Waddling gait with frequent falls Qualitative urine glycosaminoglycan (GAG) analysis[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 3

    One or both hip joints may be underdeveloped, leading to pain and difficulties walking. X-rays reveal a condition similar to Perthes disease, an orthopaedic condition.[] Coarse facies, mild dysostosis multiplex, hepatosplenomegaly and joint contractures may also be present.[] stiffness, vertebral bodies and hypertrichosis.[]

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

    abnormalities, most common upon waking [2] Leg length discrepancy common Those diagnosed are 20-30% more likely to develop inflammatory eye problems [3] Three subtypes [2[] Destructive surface changes contribute to pain and loss of motion, while ongoing growth disturbances and contractures produce further deformity (Figure 1).[] Children can have one or many symptoms, such as: Joint pain. Joint swelling. Joint stiffness. Trouble sleeping. Problems walking.[]

  • Winchester Syndrome

    Elevated IL1-beta Elevated IL6 Elevated antinuclear antibody (ANA) (speckled pattern) Performance Abnormal gait Skeletal Carpal osteolysis Fusiform finger swelling Interphalangeal[] The syndrome is characterized by dissolution of carpal and tarsal bones with generalized osteoporosis, progressive joint contractures, short stature, peripheral corneal opacities[] The syndrome is characterized by short stature, coarse face, corneal opacities, generalized osteolysis and progressive painful arthropathy with joint stiffness and contractures[]
